    I have to go with Avery. He has the speed but I don't know if he can put it all together

      I don't think Avery can live up to the first WR taken, but I still said Jordy Nelson. I just don't think he'll be successful at all.

        Yeah I chose Avery because he was picked way too high and should never produce at a second round level.

          I had a hard time picking between Jordy Nelson (which sucks because I'm a Packer fan) and Eddie Royal. I took Royal because of his overall college production.

            I think Jordy Nelson, Devin Thomas and James Hardy (if he can stay out of trouble) are the three best receivers in the draft. Not sure why anyone would vote for Nelson to be a bust... is it because he's white or something?

            WFB Comments on Vikings @ Steelers Game Rigging
            PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
            NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
            Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
            Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
            MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
            PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
            Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
            Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
            ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
            Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
            TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
            InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
            Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
            EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
            EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
            Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
            BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

            Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
            Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."

              Yeah why would anyone vote for Jordy? I honestly think he will be the best WR out of this draft. He has only played WR for 3-4 years. He came into KSU as a Safety. So he is still developing as a WR.

                Nah... The best WR in this draft will obviously be Devin Thomas or Malcolm Kelly

                  I think the way you could make a case about him being a bust would be his rawness. He played safety for some 2-3 years though he dominated his senior year and his physical standards look the part.

                  Another thing is we're choosing between five guys so it isn't a huge list to pick from. Me personally: Love Hardy's size and touchdown numbers on college, Thomas is a physical specimen and has blazing speed, and Avery was picked 33rd overall for a reason, even if we may not see it yet. That's how I broke it down.

                    I voted for Devin Thomas because he only produced for one year and is still very raw.

                      This is a funny thread because no one is giving this class any credit in the first place. I actually think that this class will outperform expectations, limas sweed (although he is not a diamond in the rough or anything like that) and mario mannigham will be the gems of this class. down the road sweed will be a touchdown machine and manningham will be a human highlight reel. sweed might actually produce this season, apparently ben "fat face" roethlisberger is loving having the big man in the offense. 2 years from now, Santonio-Sweed and Parker-Mendenhall, if they're all still around, could be the best combination of thunder-lightning duos in the league

                        I'll agree with you, I love this WR class.

                          I didn't like this WR class at all. Bunch of big names from big schools.

                          Only WRs I'm looking forward to are James Hardy, Early Doucet and Harry Douglas.

                            If there was one receiver in this class that I would feel safe calling a bust right out of the gate... it would have to be Mario Manningham.

                              he was a third round wide receiver... For him to bust he needs to catch about 100 balls in his entire career. The guy is a first round talent hindered by one crappy 40 time (which he rectified) and minor character issues. The Giants will sort him out and turn him into an All-Pro.
