Adams, MVS, Lazard, and Rodgers isn’t a bad foursome. Each brings their own unique role to the game. 
 

Goodness, Drops, Fragility and Unknown!

Pretty much.  You've got MVS and Lazard on the boundary, you've got Adams you can move around between the boundary and slot, and Rodgers is your utility guy.

Calling him a gadget guy doesn’t seem fair. I believe he offers more than just a gadget guy. The Randal Cobb comp is a good comparison and Cobb was far from a gadget guy

I think when most people are talking about gadget they mean to use the word utility.

I don't think Rodgers is a pure gadget guy.  He's super physical for his size (really just his height). Sort of like Randall Cobb in the "reckless disregard for his own physical well-being" but probably sturdier.

Really short, not great reach and a really poor athlete when compared to his peers in the class.  Not the skill set I expected as he'll never be able to compete on the outside.  This was a class of gadget WRs and Rodgers might be the least athletic one of the bunch.  It's a WR but not a huge fan of the player.

Yet productive.

That would make more sense. Gadget to me is a very narrow role on an offense. But utility is more of how I see him.

Definitely not the least athletic.

So we trade up for a role player but not an OT

Did you have your heart set on GB drafting an OT and until they do, you will not be happy?
