Ya, when my family and I were watching the draft we said the only hope we'd have of getting a first-round quality WR was to trade up to the late teens/early 20's. Otherwise, every team in need of a WR who'd be picking around our selection would try to leap us to get their guy given that our hand was basically revealed prior to the draft. Given our needs, one can assume that Gute was ok with the late-round depth at o-line. Were ok taking a bit of a risk on an ILB in the middle rounds and they REALLY wanted Deguara and Dillon seeing what Jusczcyk and Henry have done for their respective teams. That's how I'm rationalizing this draft anyway, some high risk, high possible reward choices by a GM who's time is now on the clock.
Outside of Pittman I'm 100% in agreement there was no receiver worth the value of our first pick.
Outside of Bryan Edwards I didn't have one rated worth picking at our second pick.
I didn't have any WR worthy of our third pick.
DPJ was the only WR I saw was of value at our 5th round pick. For what it is worth I did not like DPJ at all...but in the 5th round that is solid value for what I think he can be and do.
6th onward there wasn't any WR I felt I wanted to take a flyer on outside MAYBE Proche or Hill.
^^^ I mean truly as deep as the WR draft was from top to bottom, value really NEVER fell to our spots honestly that much.
