He hasn’t thrown yet, but more and more I’m hearing Daniels will go in the top 3, maybe even 2 if he throws great. The Pats really like Harrison, but likely not enough to resist a trade with so many holes to fill. If things go that way it will be hard for the Cards to get much value trading down. There is virtually total consensus that Harrison is the top WR. However, with such a strong pool of WRs, no team seems likely to pay a solid price to move up. So Ossenfort will be left with 3 options. The most obvious is to just take Harrison. If he is all in for an OT, the second option is he could take his choice. Option 3 hinges on the NYG who seem to have the greatest need for both a WR and an OT. They likely wouldn’t pay more than pick #70 to move up if they go WR. The Chargers likely take a tackle so the Cards would get the guy the Chargers don’t take. That trade makes little sense if the Cards have an OT preference.

If MHJ is on the board and they go for option 2 or 3 it would basically be the Adrian Peterson situation all over again. Passing up a sure fire stud to draft an OL just because you think you're smarter than everyone else in the room.
Agreed.

If MHJ is there and we don't take him, it will be a big blow to me.

One man can override Monti on that decision.

Just dont see how Bidwill lets a team lacking stars willing pass on MHJ. If he's gone then sure trade down, but man.

OT but Passing on AP was an all time blunder but he wasn’t seen as a surefire prospect coming out that year. He dealt with injuries his final season and many thought his running style wouldn’t hold up. It was overthinking in hindsight but there’s a reason he didn’t go top-5. Man with him and Fitz/Q those years though? It probably extends Kurt’s resurgent prime by 2-3 years.

The good news is it seems more and more likely than MHJ is there for us. The bad news is there is a chance that Monte takes a very good tackle instead of the best available WR in the last 8 to 10 years.

Just a reminder. 1st round WRs disappoint or fail all the time. I will list the first round and then any notable 2nd rounders or later pro bowlers

2017 WR 1st round Draft Order. Corey Davis, John Ross 2nd Round: JuJu Smith Schuster 3rd Round: Cooper Kupp
2018: DJ Moore, Calvin Ridley 2nd Round: Courtland Sutton, Dj Chark, Christian Kirk
2019: Hollywood Brown, NKeal Harry. 2nd Round: Deebo, AJ Brown 3rd Round: DK Metcalf, Dionte Johnson, Terry McLaurin,
2020: Henry Ruggs, Jerry Judy, Cee Dee, Justin Jefferson, Brandon Aiyuk. 2nd Round: Tee Higgins, Michael Pittman
2021: Jamaar Chase, Devonta Smith, Kadarius Toney, Rashod Bateman 4th Round: Amon St Brown
2022: Drake London, Garret Wilson, Chris Olave, Jameson Williams

That's 3 pro bowlers out of 18 picks in 6 years of round 1. 2 of them that made the pro bowl were not the first or second guy taken.

This draft is super deep in WRs. Like 2019 deep

Honestly that list of 1st round WRs is even worse than I had pictured in my head.

You can make an argument that WRs picked in the 1st 12 should be thought of like RBs in the 1st 12.

Thanks Chris!

Pre draft, Is MJH considered to be a better prospect than every single one of those guys?

If "yes", does that ease your concern (some) about taking MJH at 4?

You can't believe much coming out of this. Teams will put out a ton of misinformation to throw other teams off. Let the games begin!!!

I think the hyperbole is really high on him right now. If you spend a top 5 pick on him he absolutely must become Jamaar Chase.

Most if not all of them would have been better than the player picked by the Arizona Football Cardinals in those drafts. Except Henry Ruggs.

I'm always more leery of prospects with big time tools who lack elite production. Very fast WRs don't always translate. The same can be said for very big receivers. The worst hit rate is corners over 6'2.
