Why is Equanimeous St. Brown NOT a consensus 1st round pick?

To be clear though attitude only dings you so much.   Callaway has 1st round talent but an even riskier profile than ESB.   And he still went in the 4th.   

I think ESB should have been drafted ahead of a lot of guys who went Day 3 (Simmie Cobbs Jr.  too).  But it’s hard to say he was a 1st round talent.  Day 2 might have been a stretch TBH.  

Antonio Callaway isn't just a 1st round talent.  He's a Hall of Fame talent IMO.  There's a significant gap between him and St. Brown. 

With that said, ultimately what you do in the league matters more than where you are drafted.  I think when its all said and done, people will look at St. Bown as a player who should have gone in the 1st round.  I'm pretty confident that he will be a perennial Pro Bowl WR.

I thought he was a pretty good WR with the tools you look for.  He really rounded his routes and had a limited route tree.  But he had length, speed and hands.  I thought his atrocious QB play really hurt him and teams would see that and he'd go in 2-3.  I didn't know any of this diva stuff though.  That, combined with his lack of lateral movement and routes really hurt him.  Now that he's a Packer, I have to hope he doesn't materialize into a star lol.
