4. Paul Richardson (Colorado), Jordan Matthews (Vanderbilt) or Allen Robinson (Penn State) via Draft: I really couldn’t pick which one of these guys I liked better, so I said heck with it, any of the three with this fourth option. They all have slight speed concerns, but they also have size and terrific ability with the ball in hand. If the Hawks fail to pick up a WR in the first two rounds and either of these are available to them in the third, scooping ‘em up would be a super, super value.
Richardson in particular might drop based on health concerns, but if you’re looking for the Adrian Petersen of college receivers, this is your guy. Had he been paired with a better O-line and a better quarterback throughout his career he would have amassed some ridiculously huge numbers. Matthews is probably the best route-runner of the group, while Robinson might have the most raw athleticism.
