    Yeah. Not sure where people are getting the illusion we can't succeed at WR unless it's a 1st round pick. We already have a superstar. In the past decade, only three teams have carried 1st round pick at WR that they drafted to a Super Bowl win, and the list isn't impressive. Eagles with Nelson Agholor, who isn't striking fear into anyone, the Broncos with Brandon Marshall, and the Giants with Hakeem Nicks, who also isn't really striking that much fear into anyone.

    Don't know how the WR's who were drafted this year will do, but in recent drafts some of the most successful WR's were NOT drafted in the 1st round. So I don't think we should be too concerned about having to get one who is ranked in the top three. And I have no idea about FA/trades, etc.

    Barring trades, if we are drafting 32, I wouldn’t care if we took Ronald McDonald.

    If we drafted Ronald McDonald, guys would be complaining that we should have gone for "The King". :)

    I would be focused more on CB & OLB in next year's draft. Another Patrick could be in the cards (no pun intended) if Patrick Surtain Jr. is available when we are on the clock.

    My early 2021 draft wish list:
    #1 - Patrick Surtain Jr
    #2 - Halmicar Rashed Jr
    #3 - Thayer Munford

    It's the proverbial dartboard of spread offenses. I dig Ceedee Lamb but what will he do when he finally gets bumped at the line of scrimmage :)

    This will be a consistent theme for drafts year to year moving forward. It is just the nature of how football is being played at the middle school, high school, and college ranks.

    maybe less teams interested in a WR or at least as an early pick allowing for a higher value pick for us

    I was a bit surprised it took until the 12th pick for a wide receiver to be drafted but it looked like a decent draft for this position. Knowing next years draft class is supposed to be better makes me smile. Three quarterbacks going early helped the Cardinals.
