I have to disagree with you. Here's why.
Welker LED the Dolphins in receptions with 67. He was second on the Dolphins in yardage.
Welker was the targeted receiver 100 times and caught 67 passes. Of those 67 passes, 33 went for 1st downs. OH, he had 4 drops.
I would think that constitute someone being a little bit MORE than a 3rd receiver.
Welker is a #2/#3 receiver in the Troy Brown mold. Not only that, Welker is a solid KR/PR
. Welker could also be considered an emergency kicker.
I think that is definitely worth a #2 pick.
For Comparison (Regular season only):
Caldwell - targeted 102 times. 1 drop. 61 receptions. 760 yards.
Gaffney - targeted 20 times. 2 drops. 11 receptions. 142 yards.
Troy Brown - targeted 75 times. 2 drops. 43 receptions. 384 yards.
Ben Watson - targeted 91 times. 6 drops. 49 receptions. 643 yards.
Daniel Graham - targeted 34 times. 3 drops. 21 receptions. 235 yards.
