Draft preview: Receivers run deep in 2004

NFL scouts always like to say receivers in the draft are a dime a dozen.

This year that might mean someone has to cough up 20 cents.

The 2004 NFL Draft is shaping up as one of the deepest receiver drafts in a long time -- maybe ever -- and scouts are saying this receiving group could be 25 deep.

"The thing about this draft," one NFC personnel director said, "is that the 10th receiver taken could end up being better than the first. That's how good this draft is at the receiver spot."

Draft preview: Receivers run deep in 2004

I\'ll probably get a bit of flak on this but...

The article also mentions about how the NFL is cracking down on defensive holding this year.
The bigger players won\'t get mugged, and the faster receivers will have easier releases.
I wonder how much it will come into play. I figure some of the good DBs are that way because of the extra chuck or hold that they\'ve always been able to get away with. Just maybe (and I\'m not saying this is what we should do) if one of the top 4-5 WRs is avail at 18 and the top CBs are gone, we\'d take the next best WR and just try to outscore the opponents.

Like I say, it\'s not something I\'d do, but wonder how many Coach/GMs would lean that way.
