Hey guys. Sorry for the lack of posts in the past couple days but I just started a new job and time was tight. A big thanks to Ryan for keeping the site fresh. I have been looking at mock drafts and seeing where Tommy Streeter has been going and I am consistently seeing anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th round. In my opinion, that is totally absurd as he is one of the premiere prospects at the WR position. Streeter has all the measurable’s to be an absolute stud and if a team can land him in the third round, they would be getting a major steal. After he blew up the combine, I thought Streeter might see his stock soar into the late first round but instead he has kind of stayed where he was. I have always had him rated as an early second round pick and I see numerous possible landing spots for him. After the jump see where they are and see my updated WR Rankings.
This year’s WR class is absolutely loaded with elite talent and phenomenal depth. Every type of WR is represented and there will be a lot of WRs taken early in the draft. After the jump see my analysis of this year’s WR class
Earlier today I posted the RBs and yesterday I posted the QBs. The Wide Receiver position will be loaded this year if underclassmen declare. From top to bottom there is tons of NFL talent in this draft class and multiple #1 WRs. Note that this was written before Ryan Broyles incredible 154 yard 3TD performance. He is going to stay at No. 6 but the difference between 4 and 6 is marginal right now and could be inter-changeable.
1. Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State: I am now one of the people who think Blackmon is the #1 WR in the draft and by a decent margin. He is putting up ridiculous numbers with ease. I think he will be better than A.J. Green.
2. Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina: This is not a knock on Jeffery at all. He will still be a top ten pick and he will still be a stud in the NFL but I think Blackmon has surpassed him as the No. 1 WR in this draft. Whoever gets Jeffery is getting an incredible WR with huge upside.
3. Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame: Floyd has all the talent in the world but has character concerns. He is a #1 WR in the NFL and just needs to stay focused.
4. Mohammed Sanu, WR, Rutgers: This will surprise a lot of people but Sanu has been the best WR in college football so far this year. He has all the tools to be a Wes Welker like player in the NFL and could become the best possession WR in the NFL by the time he is a five year veteran. He will be a first round pick, possibly top fifteen, if he keeps playing this well.
5. Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M: Fuller has fallen because of great play by Floyd and Sanu, but he is still a legitimate #1 WR in the NFL. He should be a late first to early second round pick if he keeps this type of play up.
