I like Claypool at 34. Funny, before we traded our 1st, I had decided that a trade-down to 21ish was in order, targeting Justin Jefferson or Denzel Mims. Now, I’m fairly certain we won’t have that kind of complete receiver available to us. I’m pretty indifferent between Claypool or Aiyuk at 34, with Pittman a little bit behind those two. I still think Mims will be long gone by that time...
For many, it's an educated and informed guess taught by years of experience. And they get paid to do it.
Maybe it is that he really is seen as a rotational/roster player of 5th round value, like C. Landry feels. Landry has 25 receivers rated 4th round and higher above him.
