Quick, name the last time six wr went in round 1..there are at least six that are worthy...someone is falling.
Quick, name the last time there was a class worthy of 6-7 first round WRs.

The NFL game is changing. Teams at the forefront will not allow Viska to get out of the first without some sort of currently unknown physical or personal red flag emerging. He is an offensive weapon unlike what’s out there in the NFL right now.

He's also proven his value in the wildcat formation.

Such as? You can easily make the argument that WR is a top 3 need and that WR may very well be the choice to make at 15 as the tier 1 guys for the other positions are gone.
Funny how the Broncos went from having such a bad roster with Flacco at QB to 4-1 and looking competent with Lock at QB. Obviously there are holes to fill, but WR is arguably the biggest one.

I think OT is a much bigger issue, and depending on whether Harris re-signs, CB as well.
The problem is they aren’t getting rid of either Juwan James or Bolles, so while we all believe OT is the biggest need, that’s not how they’ll approach the first round, IMO. I agree if Harris is gone CB is right there as a top need, but they need a play making WR just as bad.

Those are the 3, but there seems to be one top tier CB and 2 top tier OTs while there're several top tier WRs. And you said there were "so many other holes to fill", so what are they?

Garrett Bolles is a result of the "we're gonna pick a guy for position x no matter what as we're terrible there and need to get someone at all costs" thinking.

Bigger problem than the strategy was picking the wrong T.

Those are some pretty damn big holes, but whatever.

Hmmmmm. Kobe never went to college. He’s not in the NBA any more. I’m thinking he’s angling for a scholarship. 😀

Who is Kobe's agent? They are likely paying for those tickets unless the Lakers are giving them to him for free.

No longer has an agent since his former agent is now the GM of the Lakers. Seems like he’s doing his entrepreneur thing...
He still likely has a media or advertising rep who could have provided the tix.

I'm talking out my ass - I have no clue what the reality is, I just find it really odd Viska would have a direct connection to Kobe. This feels like a commercial opportunity.

I could very well be wrong.

Corner is a need regardless of what happens with CHJ-If he's back, its one, but if he goes, they need 2. They can't expect anything out of Bryce Callahan given his foot issues last year. Tackle still needs to be addressed even with James and Bolles coming back for 2020-Bolles' 5th year (unless they do something nobody expects) will not be picked up, and this is a fairly good class at that position too from what I know. I think they're bringing Wolfe OR Shelby Harris back (more likely its Wolfe)-but you never know. If they lose both of them, DL becomes another need. As far as WR, I'll say this: I think Jeudy isn't an option because they're picking too low. Viska's the type of kid who would kill it at the Underwear Olympics, so I'd wonder about him making it to the middle of the first round. Ruggs and Lamb? I don't see a ton of difference between either of those two now and Dede Westbrook at Oklahoma-who hasn't exactly torn it up in Jacksonville. I don't like either's size. Give me Viska if I can get him or Tee Higgins from Clemson.

I know this will sound stupid, but I hope he’s still attending classes, or taking them on line.
