WRs drafted in Rounds 1-3 over the last 5 years and yards per season

With all the discussion about WRs in the upcoming draft and the ability and odds of success depending on round drafted, I went back through the first three rounds of the last 5 drafts.

I added picks by round through each year as well. It shows the trend of WR taken earlier the last couple of years as the rules change to favor passing offenses.
