I don't believe a player with his skill set is worth a first round pick. He's more of a complimentary piece to an offense and I think you want to get more from a first rounder.
The question of whether he'll go in the first is somewhat interesting. Historically guys like this have been taken in the middle to late rounds but last year we saw Tavon Austin go high in the first. I think Austin was a superior prospect but that pick implies that teams are starting to value these types of players higher. On the other hand teams may look at Austin's lack of impact this season and be hesitant to draft a similar prospect in the first.
Personally I think teams will go back to a more traditional view of this type of prospect and he'll go in the 2nd or 3rd but as always it only takes one team to fall in love and take him in the first.
