I dont see us looking at Agholor before the second. No way is he worth a first rounder being arguable the 5th or 6th best receiver in the draft. Why go for 6th best when you can get a similar talent in the third round and instead get a top corner, or other position. He just isnt a good value int he first and frankly isnt so unique we cant approximate his skills further down the draft. And yes being from USC is an issue since the last one of their receivers that really panned out was in the 90s. For whatever reason their guys do not pan out in the NFL and with the last 16 being busts si surely not pure chance.
Just because you think he is the 5th or 6th best receiver in this draft based on a few articles doesn't mean our GM thinks the same. What was Kelvin ranked last year? I only looked at CBS but that had him 8th....
Being from USC is absolutely not a problem, does attending a certain university automatically suck away your talent? Its not fair to judge a player because of where he went to school (which happens to send the most players to the nfl nonetheless). I don't think a professional is going to shy away from a player based on a fanbase's superstitions. And labeling Marqise Lee and Robert Woods as busts already is just absurd. Woods would clearly be our #2 receiver and showed solid progression in his 2nd year with a pretty bad QB situation.
