I'd argue that with the NFL rules and officiating heavily weighted to offense, and passing specifically, it often takes a special player to do well as a CB. They have to have a level of athleticism, skill and mental toughness that is more rare than what is needed to be successful as a WR...and besides playing well in the passing game, the CB needs to be able to come up an take on a 220lb RB with a full head of steam too.People say you can never have enough CB's, and I don't understand why they don't apply the same logic to WR. Just as a D wants to be ableto match up as well as possible, the Offense should want to have a WR group that's as tough as possible to match up with. All the best offenses have answers for your answers. If you blanket Kelce and Hill, Mahomes has Watkins and Hardman.
WRs, and the QBs delivering them the ball, get so many advantages that you get plenty of receivers that "will do" later in the draft. IMO
