What makes you think a CB, FS or OG would make an immediate impact and not a WR?
Is a corner at #22 going to take Newman's or Henry's place? Is a FS going to take Patrick Watkins' or Reeves' place? If you argue they can be put in the nickel package or on passing downs, why couldn't a WR be rotated into the three-receiver package?
And with a WR, he can also serve as a punt/kickoff specialist. If it's someone like Ginn, then he could have the same impact as Hester, and Hester played like a first-rounder based on the field position he gave the Bears. I don't care if he was "just" a specialist.
I don't see any position on this team where a guy we draft is going to make an immediate impact as in a contributing starter from Day 1. Those guys are too high up in the draft.
