Keenan Allen California. 6'3" 210lbs approx 4.45 40yd dash-Personally I think the best receiver in the draft is Keenan Allen from California solely based on versatility. He reminds me of a slower but taller Percy Harvin, Allen can take the ball out of the backfield, return kicks/punts and has that quick slot receiver type role. He is a great route runner, and a good catcher. Although he didnt produce much this year due to bad QB play and injuries h e will probably be taken top 20.
Justin Hunter Tennessee 6'4" 200lbs approx. 4.4 40yd dash- looks like a beast to me, another Aj Greene. Whenever you accompany a nearly 6 foot 5 frame with 4.3-4.4 speed you are always dealing with a potential beast. That classic height-speed ratio is amongst some of the best receivers in the league-Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Larry Fitzgerald, Aj Greene etc. He has superior leaping ability and produced well at tennesee following a torn ACL in 2011. Suprisingly his route running isnt that bad, but will get better over time he has a good skillset to work with. I think Hunter will have the "Stephen Hill effect" and tear up the combine even more so than Hill because he trains olympia style for fun ie. doing long jumps, high jumps, running hurdles etc... and wind up being a first or second round pick.
Robert Woods USC 6'1" 180lbs approx. 4.4 40yd dash- Great route runner, catcher, and has decent size and speed. Going to be overlooked this year due to his lack of production from injuries but still played through them and had some big games for USC. And in 2011 Woods put up 111 catches for 1300yds and 15 touchdowns. Production or no production imo he has one of the best skillsets in the draft and will put on a good show at the combine, could end up being taken in the 1st but looks more like a solid 2nd rounder to me.
Terrance Williams Baylor 6'2" 205lbs approx. 4.5 40yd dash- The most productive wideout in college football in 2012 posting 1800+yards and 12 touchdowns. He is a decent route runner but needs to get better at run after the catch. Maybe its just me but any time i saw him play he would always seem to "flop" on the field to avoid gettig hit or from being too tired which definitely cought my eye. I think he could be a decent reciever but will only get drafted high due to his production kind of like Blackmon last year. Dont like him as a 1st round pick although thats where he will likely end up.
Deandre Hopkins Clemson 6'1" projected 4.39 40yd dash- The only Bowl game I watched this year due to being way too busy was the chik-fil-a bowl which Hopkins just happened to dominate in. Against LSU he posted 13 catches 191yds 2tds. Aside from an impressive post season, Hopkins torched defenses all year and had a touchdown in everygame but 1 all year finishing with 1400yds and 18tds. Needs to work on things but should easily go in the second round.
Stedman Bailey WVU 5'10" 193lbs approx. 4.45 40yd dash- Not neccisarily a top prospect due to lack of height and not having all the best skills in the world. But production wise posting 1600yds and 25tds puts him in the limelight. This is who I want the ravens to pickup this year. He definitely has a lot of potential as a dominant slot receiver who could take over once Boldin leaves in the not too distant future. He runs pretty well but needs to work on the fundamentals a bit. I think we could grab him in the 3rd if we are lucky thats where Kiper thinks he will go anyways-between rds 2-4.
Tavon Austin WVU 5'9 176lbs. 2012- 114rec 1289yds 12td
