Bernard. I'm not as high on as everyone apparently and he's got legitimate injury issues.
On a WR-Is Harris really that good? I thought Da'Rick was kind of a steal in the 3rd.
I agree mostly on Crabs. He's not an elite WR, a game changer, somebody who takes over games or anything, but he's productive at least. We've likely seen what he is, had he not gone to a school that made him produce such gaudy stats nobody would have talked him up into that type of prospect. Good, solid player but not top 10 good.
Interesting about Bernard. He looks great on film and from what I know he was only injured once, before his freshman year. He redshirted, then had 2 big years without any known injuries.
In terms of Harris, yes, he has been. He's been stunted because we want to force Ogletree the ball for some reason, but he's played well at outside and inside WR. He's a Davone Bess clone. Not anything you'd say you were excited about as a #2 guy, but he can fill in for Austin or Dez really well and he's still getting better also. Had some blow up pre-seasons, made some huge catches for us this year, and lately he seems to be growing into that role. Romo also loves Beasley, Amendola type who is just so hard to cover in the slot and always open.
It's not the player taken there at all, just more needs. I'd throw a fit if we drafted a WR in the first 3-4 rounds and didn't really have a place to put him, when Guard, Center, NT, Safety, and even more importantly RB is such a huge need.
Felix is walking, and there is nothing else there so keep RB in mind for Dallas. We can't go into 2012 banking on Demarco being healthy, so a Ray Graham in the 4th is an option or even going with a guy in the 3rd would be huge. NT looks wide open, both safety spots could use starters. While Harris isn't a guy I expect to develop into a future starter opposite Dez or anything, as a #3 most team would be happy with that and I can't bump the need up any higher until Austin starts to lose a step or 2. Though we may go bpa and I can't fault it, because we did put a bid in on Josh Gordon, but we have been going the UDFA route on WR's so often it'd be hard to see us go with a drafted guy before round 5 with so many immediate needs.
