So the first round was entirely devoid of wide receivers, the second round should be filled with them.
With the 33rd pick, the St. Louis Rams took:
Donnie Avery, Wide Receiver, Houston.
Avery is 5’11” 192 lbs. and ran a 4.45 40-yard dash.
This might be a reach, I like DeSean Jackson better but the Rams need WR help however they can get it and he’ll definitely give Torry Holt some help.
With the 34th pick the Washington Redskins took:
Devin Thomas, Wide Receiver, Michigan State University.
Thomas is 6’1” 216 lbs. and ran a 4.4 40-yard dash.
They needed a big physical WR to go along with their undersized deep threats and Thomas is the perfect fit.
With the 36th pick in the draft the Green Bay Packers took:
Jordy Nelson, Wide Receiver, Kansas State
Nelson is 6’2” 217 lbs. and ran a 4.51 40-yard dash.
The Packers are getting a special player here. Aaron Rodgers will love the game speed Nelson has.
With the 41st pick in the draft the Buffalo Bills took:
James Hardy, WR, Indiana.
Hardy is 6’5” 217 lbs. and ran a 4.51 40-yard dash.
They needed a tall receiver to complement Price and that’s what they got. If they can motivate Hardy to play he’ll be a difficult matchup for any corner in goal line situations.
With the 42nd pick in the draft, the Denver Broncos took:
Eddie Royal, WR, Virginia Tech.
Royal is 5’9” 184 lbs. and ran a 4.39 40-yard dash.
Jay Cutler has a speed demon to unload his arm on. You could see a lot of balls lofted his way this season.
