I really like DRob but disagree with this entirely.

He's #4 on our depth chart. I think he'd be a decent #2 at best, which don't get me wrong, teams need.

Although, some teams do have some really poor WR depth. An argument could be made that he'd be WR1 on the Jets, Bills, Pats, Lions, Raiders, Eagles, or Texans. So he could be their WR1 but it doesn't mean he'd be a good WR1.

He would for sure be a #2 for some teams and for sure a lot of #3's

I'm all about comp picks.

...While we don’t yet know all the parameters of the one-year deal the Chiefs gave Sherman last week, it’s a virtual certainty that it will also be a VSB deal. If that’s true, it means that aside from the exclusive rights free agent contracts given to tight end Deon Yelder and guard Andrew Wylie — each of which are minimum-salary deals carrying cap hits of only $750,000 — every contract the Chiefs have given to veteran free agents has used the VSB of the new CBA. All told, seven players have been signed to one-year veteran free-agent contracts totaling $8.3 million — but that count only $6.1 million against the cap.

To be sure, VSB contracts carry a built-in disadvantage: they can only be used for one-year agreements; therefore they do nothing to improve the roster over the long term.

But aside from the money teams can save against the salary cap in the current season, they carry another big advantage: under Article 10 in Appendix V of the new CBA, players signed to VSB contracts do not count in the NFL’s compensatory picks formula. Even if any of the team’s VSB players have fantastic seasons in 2020, their signings won’t hinder the Chiefs from gaining compensatory picks in the 2021 NFL Draft because of players they lost in free agency this year...

Right, though I think it is more correct to say a decent WR2 at worst. The Patriots have had less starting both sides for multiple rings. When they had an elite WR for a year, they went 16-0.

Making the best out of available cap space. Now deduct 650k per player pushed out of the top 51 ... and those 7 player count roughly 1.5 M$ against the cap.
