    4.60 is still kind of icky for Avant, although I bet Givens is about that. I'd still love to take Avant late 3rd/early 4th but I'd like to think most of our WR cound be 4.55 at worst - otherwise they're really starting to get slow. But 4.60 is decent and certainly a whole hell of a lot better than his 4.80.

    Avant is a possession receiver. His very good hands and route running IMO can make up for his lack of speed. Remember, Anquan Bolding dropped in the draft due to his slow 40 time. He's not a fast guy - but his good route running and stellar hands make him a much more valuable WR than most guys who have much faster 40 times.
