This was one of the best/deepest WR classes in a long time, the best I can remember. It lacked alot of elite level talent at the top but their were lots of good WR's in this class. I just hope that 3 yrs. from now we're not looking back on this class saying we screwed up reaching for a 6th round pick in the 3rd when there's was lots of other high quality players available.
I'm with ya' and yet here is some things shared on draft day by Mayock:

Childs suffered a knee injury and that led to other Arkansas WRs to shine and get drafted higher.

Toon has been playing with injuries, too. I think he has a foot that bothers him a lot, from what Mayock was saying during the highlights they showed of him.

Randle has route tree issues, apparently, and was more of a deep threat than any of the simpler underneath routes that our WCO runs a lot of.

There's three guys that maybe Kubiak wasn't too impressed with for various reasons. I don't know much about McNutt, Sanu, and Criner though.
