Drafting wide receivers is hard. Outside of quarterback, it might be the most difficult position to evaluate in the NFL. That is why we have seen even the smartest, most well-respected coaches and evaluators in the league essentially give up on spending high draft picks on receivers. Instead, coaches, like Bill Belichick, Sean McVay, and Doug Pederson, are trading away premium picks for already-proven players, rather than drafting and developing first-round receivers.
