If it’s one thing in the draft they excel at is picking wide receivers that can play.
Secondary players not so much, and linebackers neither.

Coaching not drafting. Let’s hope Drake continues the WR factory, but make note that he is taking over for Mann. Also let’s see if Bradley makes the drafting in the secondary better, make a not he is taking over for Lake. Will the “drafting” improve or decline?

Coaching and teaching make the drafts successful.

I wouldn't worry about Drake, he is in the same mold as Richard Mann, he will be fine.

Drakes resume:

WR coach Georgia 1992-1996. Hmmm. What WRs did he coach there I wonder? Hines Ward.

WR coach Texas 1998-2003. That produced Roy Williams for the NFL.

WR coach for Chicago 2004-2012. He had Bernard Berian, Johnny Knox, it was sad about Knox, had a spinal injury cut his career short. The Bears never really gave Drake much to work with but he coached up what he had and did a great job, ironic that they finally draft an Alshon Jeffrey and sign a Brandon Marshall and Drake moves on.

WR coach for Arizona 2013-2017. Yeah, Fitz was already established but Malcolm Floyd did well with Drake coaching him. As did John Brown.

I don't see any kind of drop off from Mann to Drake.

Wide receiver James Washington said he models his game after Dez Bryant, and he displayed a few Dez qualities in Steelers rookie minicamp - burst after the catch and ability to secure the ball in traffic. Washington had a few indecisive moments running routes, but coach Mike Tomlin said the second-round pick made big plays on Day 2.
