Kirk & Sutton headline round two WR group

April 28 2018 4:35 AM

It took 24 picks for a wide receiver to finally come off the board in this year's NFL Draft, but the floodgates opened in round two.

With just two wide receivers selected in the first round, six went on Friday in the second.

The Denver Broncos got the run started by selecting SMU star Courtland Sutton, a huge and athletic target who can dominate at the catch point and offers them a red zone threat.

The San Francisco 49ers then traded up to select Dante Pettis from Washington, and the Arizona Cardinals, who selected UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen in the first round, added Texas A&M star Christian Kirk.

Making a big splash, the Chicago Bears moved back into the second round to take Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller, an undersized receiver who can defeat press coverage, generate separation and win with his route-running.

After a little bit of a relative wide receiver lull, the Pittsburgh Steelers took Oklahoma State star James Washington and the Jacksonville Jaguars selected LSU's D.J. Chark in back-to-back picks.

Washington heads to Pittsburgh to replace Martavis Bryant, traded to the Oakland Raiders on Thursday.
