For me, and probably just me, I am not inclined to take a WR who has a similar skill set to Hopkins (in terms of how he wins) who is also an outlier in size.

I already have a 6'1 who can play everywhere and wins with precision route running. If I am looking to add a WR in round 1, I want a guy who can crush the underneath routes with RAC or can blow the roof off vertically. Again, my preference, but I like diverse WRs if I am spending top dollar or a high pick.
I get that. That said I would’ve likely classified boldin and Fitz in the same group (mind I’m not saying they were similar skill sets, just same general group - neither was a vertical threat in a speed sense and neither was a make-you-miss Waterbug YAC guy) and that worked pretty well.

lets assume:

1. the Cards get one of the CBs they want at #16
2. Harris, Etienne and Williams go off the board early 2nd, Toney too


3. Do spend #48 on Rondale Moore?
As much as it wouldn’t knock my socks off, I might have to consider it. Depends what olinemen, edge, and if Marshall is available. Maybe even consider zaven Collins if he’s still there.

MN for now.
I love me some Rondale Moore:

Yeah, he's only played about 1 1/2 years of college ball, but he's fast, smart, and super-strong for a guy his size.

Marshall is another WR that i would have no issue taking at 48

what Moore gives you: dynamic run after catch guy. probably a killer slot guy, with added benefit of reverses, etc. He has shown he can catch over the shoulder, so he likely isnt limited to short stuff. In summary: the potential to be a guy that defenses have to account for every down. Thats attractive.

what makes me pause: at a certain point, size does matter for a WR and 5-7 is just sooooo short. At 48, you are thinking of getting player in your top 26 or so (i.e. doesnt have to be an everydown player, but someone on the field a lot). Will Moore ever be more than a part time gadget player? Thats fine for JJ Nelson picked in the 6th, but not at 48.

There’s certainly much to like about Moore. It wouldn’t break my heart if they took him. He has good speed to spread the field. He could help as a returner. I like Williams better if he’s there. At his size he’s likely a role player. His durability is a concern though some small guys have done well and survived. I’d rather have a player who would be involved in more plays, but finding one in this draft is a huge task.

I really struggle with Moore’s size. Serious outlier.

Toney is my favorite trade down candidate. Pitts would be a no-brainer.
Agree on Pitts but it is mostly about my preference in personnel. I prefer 11 personnel to 10 personnel. I feel it lets you do more and can be more difficult for the defense to matchup with depending on the TE. I feel Pitts would let you run 11 personnel size with 10 personnel receiving ability. Hopkins, Green, Kirk and Pitts would be a tough group to matchup with IMO.

I'd take terrace Marshall from LSU. He just ran a 4.38 and it nearly 6ft 4. We need a big fast wr with great hands
