I really like Hardy's story. He went from being a walk-on to breaking the all-time NCAA receptions record. I could him playing a Julian Edelman type role somewhere. Solid route runner with great hands. Sneaky quickness after the catch.
If the top 4 WRs go in the first 12 picks, I'd prefer to look elsewhere at #25.
IMO, those top 4 WRs are about as close to sure things as you're going to find in the draft, but after that there's a pretty steep drop off but a lot of depth. I'm not convinced there's a big difference between the #5 WR and the #10 WR.
This is why I won't be shocked if we go defense in round one. The top 4 WRs are likely gone, and there will be a run of OL before our pick because everyone always needs OL. Gettleman won't reach for offense just because we struggled there.
I don't think we should/will pay for Mathis, but I think we all need to pump the brakes on Norwell a bit.
Yeah, he played great and the potential is there. But the sample size is pretty small. I don't think we should feel confident enough to say "we are set at guard. No need to look at bringing in anyone there."
