Could that essentially corner the market and cause a shortage enough to seriously hamper other teams. Especially in a league where you are required to start 3 WR's?
Most people draft RB's early, so if someone just went nuts taking WR's, could they throw off the whole balance of the league and put themselves in a great trade position a couple of weeks into the season once a few RB's situations become more clear? We have almost proven that the top 5 WR's are almost for sure things so there is little risk of your picks becoming complete busts.
It's certainlty risky. The problem with this is that the other teams are all on equal footing with lesser WR's, so they may not feel the need to trade for one of yours. It's always extremely dangerous to draft with the intention of trading.
