    You're smoking crack with Smith in the second. But I appreciate the loyalty.

    There's three of them this year. One or two who will go before him. Besides how much resources do you want to pour into one position group? At WR we have:
    - a mid-level free agent who was a former undrafted FA
    - a 6th year veteran former 3rd rounder
    - a 7th year veteran former undrafted FA
    - a 2nd year veteran former 4th rounder with minimal game experience
    - a 7th year bargain basement free agent who was a former undrafted FA
    - flotsam and jetsam behind that

    I think we need to put some resources into the position. Granted we're talking a 1st vs a 2nd (I think), but it makes a difference. You draft Calvin Ridley and he's starting. You draft Moore and he's gonna see a bunch of snaps and likely be starting before the end of the year. Sutton on down and you're talking about projects who will take a few years to be what he's gonna be. If they don't have return ability (Kirk), they might not see a ton of snaps.

    I think Anthony Miller could be starting by mid-season and can be had at 50.

    If I were to compare anyone in this class to Antonio Brown it'd be Miller. He's not an elite athlete but is a really good route runner, is surprisingly physical at the catch point in contested situations and is very tough/competitive going over the middle.

    They're also about the same size at around 5-11, 200.

    He's kind of a body catcher in watching his highlights...

    I just don't like his separation on deep balls. Really made me question his true speed. Looks like a slot guy to me who isn't able to really out run NFL speed on longer plays. For a smaller guy I was expecting better separation.

    He's a high 4.4/low 4.5 guy. Not top shelf speed. He's athletic though with good RAC.
