I see some people saying we should have taken Allen Robinson or Marqise Lee instead.
Watching Gettleman's interview he seemed very very happy to have landed KB. Based on some things he said it seems like they had him far and away ahead of the next WRs on their board, to the point where they probably didn't even have a 1st round grade on the other WRs.
And if that's the case it looks like some other teams agree with him.
There were a couple of teams right after us that had big needs at WR, San Fran and Seattle specifically. They're also generally viewed as some of the best drafting teams. Seattle clearly has been the best drafting team in the last 3 years and SF has drafted very well in recent years also.
Yet neither of them were falling over themselves and running to the podium to take either of these WRs we supposedly should have taken. SF took a safety that most had going mid to late 2nd and Seattle traded down netting only an extra 4th from the deal.
NE also had a big need at WR and went DT instead. I have to think if these other WRs were really such great values and better picks then one of these other teams would have snapped them up with a quickness, but that didn't happen.
