You are much better off taking a WR in the 2nd than in the 1st in this draft .
Earl, I had watched at least 15 Vols games the least two years, and not merely watching.
They have had a good runnig game (considering the defense they played against.). When they can run the ball, they would, to take the pressure off their QBs, whoever play that game.
In 2011, Hunter and Rodgers took turn stretching the field.
When the QB was not pressured, they would look at the X and Z receivers; if the first read is double- teamed, they went to the second read.
In 2012, it was Patterson and Hunter.
The second read was often another receiver, the TE, or the RB out of the backfield.
That's why all eleven guys on offense, plus the third receiver (Zac Rogers), all we given draftable grades by CBS Sports either this year or next.
