Inside the sixth round

In recent history, New Orleans has placed a greater emphasis on speed and upside than it has on technique and consistency when it comes to drafting receivers. The result has predictably been a talented but inconsistent receiving corps and it's clearly time to shift gears. Oregon State WR Mike Haas' (No. 171) potential is limited by his lack of ideal speed and elusiveness but he isn't afraid to go over the middle and rarely drops balls that he should catch. He should develop into a reliable sub-package possession receiver and possibly an adequate No. 2.
