Dax Milne - WR (BYU) - Worth a 7th Round Pick if we Draft Wilson?

Currently ranked in the 220'ish area in terms of overall prospects. 

Was Wilson's #1 guy in 2020.  Would appear to be small (6'1" 190 pounds) for the NFL game except perhaps as a slot guy.

Would you consider throwing a 7th rounder at him, given how low the % is at that point, and that he could help bring Wilson along?

Dax Milne

WR BYU

Positives

Dependable receiver coming off a sensational campaign. Displays great awareness, uses the sidelines well, and battles to come away with the reception. Tracks the ball in the air, displays outstanding eye/hand coordination, and consistently makes the reception away from his frame. Comes back to the ball, uses his hands to separate from defenders, and displays great short-area quickness. Adjusts to the errant throw and nicely makes the reception in stride. Keeps the play in bounds and follows blocks after the catch. Quickly gets in and out of breaks and is a sharp route runner.

Negatives

Lazily comes off the line of scrimmage. Unnecessarily lets the pass get inside him on occasion. Plays to one speed and lacks a deep burst.

Analysis

After two marginally productive seasons, Milne had a breakout campaign last year and was tough for opponents to stop. He comes with average size and speed, but his reliability and sense of what's happening on the field could help Milne grab hold of a roster spot as a fifth receiver.

Heck, take a flier in that round since we should pick up more than 1 WR in this draft. Manning's Colts always had small WRs like Marvin Harrison and they were awesome.
