Thoughts on Drafting Multiple WRs

Would you guys be opposed to drafting 2 WRs in the first three or four rounds of this years draft? I think top to bottom this draft is the best group of WRs I have ever seen come out at once and I don't see a true #2 or #3 WR on our team. I see WRs projected in the 2nd and 3rd that would normally go at least a round higher in any other year. Also, in some ways, this helps protect us against picking a bust. I just see too much value in terms of need and BPA so I would be all for it.

Who would be the second WR you take?

If you are for taking another WR, who would be the second? Would you go Evans & Matthews in the first and second?

I am personally for only taking Watkins at 10 and trading down or going a different direction if he isn't available. With Watkins going before us, I would pick up Matthews or Robinson in the 2nd. My second WR would be Martavis Bryant in the third. I think Bryant is going to surprise a lot of people with his speed for being such a tall WR. I have heard he keeps up with Watkins and Peake in the 40 yard dashes at Clemson and rumor has it he can put down a 4.3 40. I also think Bryant had an outstanding year considering they were force feeding Watkins especially in the short passing game.
