TRADE NOTES
Rams 2019 Draft History
2 2 33  Donnie Avery WR Houston
 Draft Scout Says: Someone could have made a lot of money in betting that Donnie Avery would end up being the first receiver taken in the 2008 draft. Avery lacks the big name of some of the other highly rated receivers, but his stock has been skyrocketing in recent weeks and he fills a clear need as a slot receiver and returner for the Rams.
Football Team 2019 Draft History
2 3 34  *Devin Thomas WR Michigan State (From Falcons who acquired pick and 5th-round pick in 2009 draft from Raiders for CB DeAngelo Hall, March 21, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: Once Jim Zorn was hired as the new head coach of the Washington Redskins, it was clear that the club would be adding taller receivers soon. The Redskins probably couldn't have anticipated that Devin Thomas would fall to this point, but in trading down, Washington played the board beautifully.
Packers 2019 Draft History
2 5 36  Jordy Nelson WR Kansas State (From Jets)
 Draft Scout Says: Considering the young talent already on the roster, wide receiver is far from the Packers' greatest need. However, Jordy Nelson has been flying up draft boards all season long and ranked among the hottest prospects in the final weeks. A former walk-on strong safety, Nelson developed into an All-American receiver as a senior and impressed at the Senior Bowl and Combine.
Bills 2019 Draft History
2 10 41  *James Hardy WR Indiana
 Draft Scout Says: An obvious area of need for the Bills was addressed with the selection of the 6-5, 217 pound Hardy to play opposite speedy playmaker Lee Evans. Hardy has rare athleticism for such a large receiver and has the strong hands and leaping ability to develop into one of the league's most productive red-zone targets.
Broncos 2019 Draft History
2 11 42  Eddie Royal WR Virginia Tech
 Draft Scout Says: With concerns regarding Brandon Marshall and the depth behind him, the Broncos were expected to use an early pick on receiver. In adding Royal, the team addresses their concern over depth at the position, while also finally addressing their lack of a dynamic returner. Royal's stock has been on the upswing ever since a strong performance throughout Senior Bowl week.
Eagles 2019 Draft History
2 18 49  *DeSean Jackson WR California
 Draft Scout Says: It took a round later than expected, but Philadelphia added the dynamic receiver and returner they've needed throughout Donovan McNabb's entire career. Jackson, blessed with great timed speed and remarkable agility is one of the few receivers capable of making an immediate impact.
Football Team 2019 Draft History
2 20 51  *Malcolm Kelly WR Oklahoma
 Draft Scout Says: If there was any doubt as to how serious the Redskins were in adding size and athleticism to their receiving corps, the questions were answered throughout the second round. Kelly's stock dropped after poor Pro Day workouts and due to concerns about a lingering knee injury. At this point in the draft, however, Kelly was excellent value for the Redskins.
Steelers 2019 Draft History
2 22 53  Limas Sweed WR Texas
 Draft Scout Says: Big Ben lobbied for a red-zone target and got one with the Steelers drafting receiver Limas Sweed in the second round. Possessing first round caliber athleticism, Sweed dropped down the board due to concerns about his consistency while at Texas and a wrist injury that marred his senior season. At this point, however, Sweed provided excellent value.
Bucs 2019 Draft History
2 27 58  Dexter Jackson WR Appalachian State (From Jaguars)
 Draft Scout Says: Considering that 36 year old Joey Galloway provided the only downfield threat for the Bucs over the past several years, the need was there for a dynamic receiver. In Dexter Jackson, Tampa Bay added a player with a history of stepping up his level of play each time he was challenged -- whether in the upset victory over Michigan, at the Shrine Game, the Senior Bowl, or the Combine, Jackson proved he deserved to be ranked among the elite receivers.
Bears 2019 Draft History
3 7 70  *Earl Bennett WR Vanderbilt (Bears and 49ers switched positions and 49ers forfeited 5th-round pick as result of league decision regarding 49ers tampering with LB Lance Briggs, March 24, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: For all of the attention heaped upon Chicago's weak running game, inconsistent play from their receivers was also a huge concern. Considering the turnover at the position next season, a dependable receiver was a higher priority than a supremely athletic one. Bennett, the SEC's career leader in receptions despite leaving after his junior season, has a nice combination of size and speed, but is best known for his route-running and hands.
Cardinals 2019 Draft History
3 18 81  Early Doucet WR LSU
 Draft Scout Says: The Cardinals have a knack of finding talented receivers and in Early Doucet, they've found another one. What Doucet lacks in timed speed, he makes up with terrific hands, routes, and size. He could provide an immediate impact for the Cardinals as a slot receiver, as at 210 pounds, he has the bulk to handle the inside.
Falcons 2019 Draft History
3 21 84  Harry Douglas WR Louisville (From Redskins)
Giants 2019 Draft History
3 32 95  *Mario Manningham WR Michigan
 Draft Scout Says: With needs at wide receiver, it made sense for the Giants to save Mario Manningham's stock from plummeting any further. Blessed with first round athleticism, Manningham fell to this point due to showing up ill-prepared at the Combine and lying to teams there about a failed drug test. To his credit, Manningham sent a letter to all 32 teams admitting his dishonesty and performed well at his Pro Day.
Bengals 2019 Draft History
3 34 97  Andre Caldwell WR Florida (Compensatory)
 Draft Scout Says: Considering their needs at receiver, Andre Caldwell was the perfect late third round pick for the Bengals. With his experience as a receiver and returner, Caldwell provides good value at this point, and the starting experience in the SEC to play early.
Chiefs 2019 Draft History
4 6 105  Will Franklin WR Missouri
Ravens 2019 Draft History
4 7 106  Marcus Smith WR New Mexico
Raiders 2019 Draft History
4 27 125  Arman Shields WR Richmond (From Raiders through Jaguars)
Titans 2019 Draft History
4 28 126  Lavelle Hawkins WR California (From Cowboys)
 Draft Scout Says: Needing weapons for Vince Young, the Titans elected to wait until the mid-rounds for their receiver help, but in adding Hawkins, they received an early round talent who slipped a bit due to speed questions. With good burst out of his breaks and reliable hands, Hawkins can help early. His ability to step up against top competition at the Senior Bowl was impressive.
Rams 2019 Draft History
4 30 128  Keenan Burton WR Kentucky (From Packers)
Lions 2019 Draft History
5 1 136  Kenneth Moore WR Wake Forest (From Chiefs who acquired pick from Dolphins for QB Trent Green, June 6, 2007.)
Jets 2019 Draft History
6 5 171  Marcus Henry WR Kansas
49ers 2019 Draft History
6 8 174  Josh Morgan WR Virginia Tech
Chiefs 2019 Draft History
6 16 182  Kevin Robinson WR Utah State (Chiefs acquired pick, along with 1st and two 3rds in the 2008 draft with Vikings in exchange for DE Jared Allen and a 2008 6th round pick, April 23, 2008.)
Browns 2019 Draft History
6 25 191  Paul Hubbard WR Wisconsin (From Eagles who acquired pick from Browns for C Hank Fraley, September 2, 2006.)
Vikings 2019 Draft History
6 27 193  Jaymar Johnson WR Jackson State (Vikings acquired pick from Jaguars for WR Troy Williamson, February 29, 2008.)
Colts 2019 Draft History
6 39 205  Pierre Garcon WR Mount Union (Compensatory)
Ravens 2019 Draft History
7 8 215  Justin Harper WR Virginia Tech
Packers 2019 Draft History
7 10 217  Brett Swain WR San Diego State (Rams acquired pick from Bengals for QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, September 1, 2007.)
Bills 2019 Draft History
7 17 224  Steve Johnson WR Kentucky (Bills acquired pick and DT Darwin Walker from Eagles for QB Kelly Holcomb and LB Takeo Spikes, March 28, 2007.)
Raiders 2019 Draft History
7 19 226  Chaz Schilens WR San Diego State (Jets acquired pick from Vikings for QB Brooks Bollinger and DT C.J. Mosley. August 31, 2006. Raiders acquired pick from Jets for DE Bobby Hamilton, September 2, 2006.)
Saints 2019 Draft History
7 30 237  *Adrian Arrington WR Michigan (From Packers)
Bengals 2019 Draft History
7 39 246  *Mario Urrutia WR Louisville (Compensatory)
Bears 2019 Draft History
7 41 248  Marcus Monk WR Arkansas (Compensatory)
