WR Available at 47

NJLCO : 4/3/2024 10:53 am
Just asking if a QB falls into our lap at 6, what WR will be available at 47 or do we go in a different direction?
Bit of a catch 22,

people will say that this is a really deep WR draft, which by all accounts, it is, but when that's the case, there's usually a run on that position, so people will have to adjust their expectations.
Troy Franklin, Ladd McConkey, Xavier Legette

If we don't have to move up for a QB and Adonai Mitchell gets to 25+ I'd be in favor of a trade up for him.
I see a bevy of excellent options...

in your hypothetical.

Ladd McConkey, Malachi Corley, Troy Franklin, Tez Walker, Roman Wilson, Xs (Worthy/Leggett), etc. I highlighted my favorites.

In fact, there should be WR at 47 who will likely have first round grades because this is a bumper crop of WRs.

It's a great draft to need WRs, OLs, and QBs.
We have a Wandale

So not another smurf better to draft on of the big 3 in the first round.
I like Cornelius Johnson on day 3

See if a DT/CB drops to 47.
I hope Keon Coleman or Xavier Legette

Did a mock draft the other day where I got JJM at 6 and Coleman at 47. I'd take it haha.
I would almost rather Schoen

use next year's #1 (if he needs to in a trade up), rather than this year's 47. There will be first rd graded WRs at 47 this year. We could make MAJOR upgrades at QB and the WR room really fast this draft, which will have residual impacts on the rest of the offense and the team.
Impossible to say with certainty

But if there was ever a draft where you could reasonably expect some really nice WR talent to still be available at 47, it's this year. Could make taking a QB in round 1 a lot easier to sell to a FO/coaching staff that's probably split on WR or QB with first pick.
Although not the tallest guy

Malachi Corley has long arms (over 32") and plays a physical game. Keon Coleman has more height, but the same arm length.
There are so many WRs typically available throughout the draft, that

I would not trade up for any of them. In this draft, after the first 3-4 receivers, you might as well be throwing darts at the draftboard. Trading down is worth it in most years.

This is a good question from the OP. I think there is some concern here as there will be a lot of teams drafting into this strength.

If the BBI Mock Draft is any indicator then all the WRs you named will be gone. Possibly 10-12 WRs drafted before #47.

Wish the Brian Burns 2nd rounder we gave was the second one.
