    One of the most underrated prospects in this years draft. Because he played in a small school (it's still division 1 football) he doesn't get much recognition. However Roberts can certainly do it all: catch in traffic check, YAC check, Punt returner check, Kick returner check, consistent route runner check, etc. etc. He's projected to go in the fourth round and I wouldn't mind at all if TT decided to give him a chance there.

    The reason why I highlighted "screens, drag routes or down the sidelines" is because the Packers have struggled to implement these routes due to the fact that our recievers are very weak doing so. Adding Roberts would definitely fix that.

    He, together with Jordan Shipley and Riley Cooper are my favorites Wrs in this draft.

    All though, great hands, YAC receivers. No blazing speed, no height advantage, but the 3 can flat out play.

    Well, my favorite is Golden Tate, but he's not an option...

    I think Roberts is the only exception here if you're talking about blazing speed. There are plays where I see he flat out burns a CB or safety. I think Roberts has a slow acceleration but once he reaches his top gear he's tough to catch.

    Tate is my favorite receiver too and I think he may be a better option than Dez Bryant if you don't want all the baggage. If he falls to the second round I wouldn't mind at all if we moved up to take him.

    Depends. For our 2nd and a 5th, not problem. For more than that...
