1Kendall Wright6.6Baylor5102/196Outstanding get off, tremendously quick off the line. Deals with contact well within 5 yards very well, runs at CB creating balance issues, bumps off with shoulder and quickly breaks off route, two yards of separation with 10 yards of LOS. That translates well. Tight ropes sideline like no one else in NCAA. Quick feet keep CB guessing/tentative/off balance at contact point, continues upfield with fluid pass by, whe he has an extra step he keeps it. An incredibly fiery competitor, talker after the play, does not go down easily. Has ability to consistently separate, guessing CBs helps on vertical routes, keeps them in fear and tentative that he'll break routes off. His three yard out could be a bit crisper, a little rounded vs off coverage. Extraordinary run after catch ability, turns upfield on a dime after curls, stays at full speed on crossing routes with + vision. Adjusts to back shoulder throws along the sideline very well, throws shoulder back and gets ball at high point. Doesn't bobble catches, ball sticks to his hands, very reliable. Will struggle the most to win that are thrown behind him on crossing routes in the box with a trailing defender since he is running full speed. Some might say he''s small but he breaks a lot of tackles with quick moves in space and running through ankle tackles. Leaves his feet when necessary even in full stride, hangs on after contact in air. Smart, gets down before contact if momentum is stopped. Does make tough catches in traffic when coming back to the football. Fleming got physical with him, slowed but worked his way around jam with contact and persistence. Lines up from every receiver position and wins at each. Completely outruns deep, flat footed, safeties vertically. Could improve going up and getting underthrows at highest point, not Steve Smith in that category. Fantastic open field wiggle, makes tacklers whiff. Does not stretch sweeps/reverses, cuts upfield through crease. Has no trouble with low catches, consistently slides to make catches. Not afraid in the least to lay out for a catch into contact. Could get rid of hitch/hop in first few steps that flashes once in a while, was it for timing purposes? Up to full speed in two steps from stand still. Will flash lowering shoulder on contact when necessary. Top playmaker in this draft. Mix of Steve Smith and Santonio Holmes, the good parts.http://bit.ly/H5whi6

.

2Michael Floyd6.5Notre Dame6025/220Very good blocker on the outside, maybe the best in this draft. Beats press in both ways, quick footwork to inside release or disengaging with active hands/armbar. Turn upfield after catch on curls isn't sharp, rounded towards the sideline. Drives on curls very well, tough to tell if he is going to break back, three steps on cut could be improved but still separates easily. Consistently makes the catch away form his body. Easily leaves his feet to go up and get off target throws. Not strictly an outside WR, wins from the slot too, blocks well form every spot. Shows more killer instinct on blocks than many OLs. Frequently had to slow his routes down due to errant throws, leave his feet. Outstanding at going up and getting passes downfield, high points, a real leaper. Hesitates after the catch too often, especially when catch brings him to a stop, maybe his weakest attribute. Works the sideline well, very light footed for WR his size. Much better after the catch if its in stride, continues on upfield angles. Looks for stiff arm quite often, not to deliver a blow but to soften impact. Has awareness to break off routes vs overload blitz. Quite nimble for a large WR. Not fazed by passes that get to him quickly, a true hands catcher. Uses his body to catch and shield when necessary on inside routes. Great on back shoulder throws, plants and adjust accordingly. Not elite quicks out of breaks in terms of burst but constantly separates at every level of the field. In tight situations, separates just enough at the catch point without pushing off.http://bit.ly/H6BmrB

.

3Justin Blackmon6.4Oklahoma State6007/207Very strong after the catch, stiff arm on diving tackles, breaks plenty. Not tremendously quick on end arounds, lacks one step cut, stretches run. Works well on inside routes, body catches but uses frame well to shield. Still stretches his crossing routes after the catch, flows towards the sideline instead of cutting upfield. Shrugs off five yard contact vs off coverage, leans/bends to avoid. Really hot and cold on toughness after the catch, if he can't compose himself after the catch he goes down on first contact. Flashes carrying ball in wrong arm, bends upfield turns. Majority of catches are quick hitters within 10 yards after constantly facing off coverage, seven yard cushion. Is this a sign of taking what defense gives him or lack of vertical skills? If he has a clean route, no contact, he does well vertically down the seam or skinny post and uses frame to box out and body catch. Glides in too many routes, possibly for timing purposes. Not a wide array of routes. Planting and stopping route to high point is not his strong skill, prefers to stay on ground rather than leave his feet to fight for ball in air. Does get jostled with physical press CB, lacks a close to clean release in those situations (ISU's Leonard Johnson). Strong hands, especially on quick slants into the box. When going up for ball he prefer to catch over his shoulder rather than using length and high pointing. Many big plays came after 7-10 yard route and break first tackle, then using straight line speed. Different than separating vertically vs man coverage. Get off isn't special, extra stutter steps vs press. Boldin type, doubt he's top 15 WR consistently. Drops some balls that hit him directly in the hands. Flashes knucklehead plays, drops, fumbles. Best inside the numbers in soft zones, fluid in cuts, maybe not full speed. Body catches far too often when its not necessary, doesn't use length.http://bit.ly/HFdzKk

.

4Rueben Randle6.1LSU6027/210Gets downfield vs off coverage quickly, stems at CB then releases by. Slightly pushes off on comebacks but turns in one or two steps, hands could create a target more quickly. Tracks ball over shoulder downfield very well on bucket catches, struggles more when having to hand catch those. First step is a bit hesitant vs press coverage. Always looking to evade after catch once hauling in curl, stutter steps. Lacks elite burst on inside breaking routes, hesitates too often, needs to run them at full speed, offensive timing purposes? Breaks plenty of tackles after the catch, flashes RB moves/vision in the open field. Carries ball high and tight on contact. Gets off jam with arm over swim, releases down the sideline on fade route. May not have blazing after catch speed vs closing safety but more than enough to keep distance. Most targets come downfield on vertical routes vs man coverage or inside routes vs off zone. Does very well vs cover 2 zone, sits between LBs and S inside with strong routes. Cleanly catches the majority of his throws above his waist. Does most of his work between the numbers on 10-15 yard routes vs zone or vertically. Hangs on to catch after immediate big hits, challenged in this area a lot. Leans into real physical press coverage, then jolts back for sliver of separation. Uses hands effectively to beat press coverage vs overextending CBs. Runs a tight sluggo, cuts when CB has committed inside. Cuts in two steps on 10 yard curl vs press bail, flips head quickly. Lets QB know if he is open inside, waves and slows in soft area while flowing to QB. Needs to work back towards QB better when ball is in the air, meet it. Crosses up man CBs on developing downfield routes. Breaks route upfield when QB scrambles out of pocket to same sideline. Can adjust to outside/back shoulder throws that was supposed to be inside. Does not high point the ball enough downfield, may get position but almost all catches come over the shoulder.http://bit.ly/H8yo5J

.

5Marvin Jones6.0California6017/199 Great body control in every aspect of his game. Get off is good with a plus burst vs off coverage and beats press with tech. Could have trouble vs physical pressing CBs, but he's strong for his size, just needs to use it properly. Little wasted movements in his routes, quick twitch movements are very exaggerated, helps create separation. Vertical speed is not outstanding, usually held to short yards after the catch, limited in that big play area. Some outside breaking routes could be crisper, but thats being picky. Body control evident when leaving his feet, adjusting in mid air for poor throws and converting acrobatic catches. Reliable hands at high catch point, consistent hands catcher away from his body. Experience both inside and out, comfortable and successful at either. Awareness and concentration exhibited on almost every game, toe tapping catches or athletic catches in traffic. Uses body positioning in traffic and length to reach for ball. Stops to use his vertical and high point rather than staying on the ground. Solid blocking effort. Are exaggerated movements confused for explosive elements? Not a home run threat but consistently creates separation with fluid route tree, burst. Third wheel in Cal offense. Already getting a lot out of athletic ability, lacks upside? Chad Johnson comparison.http://bit.ly/HctxNL

.

6Brian Quick5.9Appalachian St.6034/220Gets downfield very well vs off coverage, needs to be more forceful at the top of routes once reaching DB, not the time to slowdown. Gets fairly low on breaks for big guy, improvement if he gets lower, does one cut on outside breaking routes. Uses body well for positioning, not sure about run after catch ability once at a standstill. Lots of deceiving downfield speed, if he gets going hes tough to stop, take VT game for example, spins after curl and runs away from most trailing DBs. Not coordinated after the catch carrying the ball. Lines up from multiple spots, single wide, in the slot, etc. Balance is good during catch and during contact to stay up. Bends shoulder around physical DB to pass by. Still tends to be a body catcher but consistently flashes hands away from body, especially on big catches. Reliable on low catches, bends to haul in. Adjusts very well to back shoulder throws that force him to use length to high point, even in traffic. Don't see a real burst except in first step, doesn't sustain it. Doesn't sustain blocks long enough, much better when given shoulder to drive. Limited number of routes, vertical, curl, slant, back shoulder. Tracks over shoulder very well, could do better to create sliver of separation at the catch point. Inconsistent hands at the senior bowl, should add strength to beat the press. Colston type in the slot.http://bit.ly/HFkoiu

.

7Chris Givens5.9Wake Forest5111/198Tracks over shoulder well, slight bobble on catch. Sustains vertical speed after the catch, at least keeps distance. Was not asked to run many routes: crossing, screen, vertical, comeback. Adequate run after catch if its made in traffic, may spin off 1st contact. Not used solely as inside WR, also boundary in single or twins sets. Lacks elite burst after the catch from a slow pace. Works through traffic well on crossing routes. Precise routes, cuts force DBs off balance in man, space to release and create more separation. Does have open field wiggle in 1on1 situations, looks a bit slower with the ball in hand, Side steps/lateral move. Can adjust to body catches behind on breaking routes as well as back shoulder throws along the sideline, toe taps but body catches. Beats press with inside arm bar to outside shoulder and leans around release to the outside. Complains to referee quite a bit. Eats up press bail with outside breaking routes. Tends to stretch reverses out too far. Heads towards the sideline majority of times after the catch. Reliable on low catches, adjusts and lays out frequently. Needs to get rid of bobbles on hand catches. One of the few players to use hands to deal with contact in routes. Not an outstanding KR.http://bit.ly/H9aYgx

.

8Stephen Hill5.9Georgia Tech6040/215Lacks fluidity in breaks, rounded without burst/exaggeration. Very good straight line speed but takes multiple steps to slow down, break back route. Really hot and cold in terms of catch consistency, makes some tough contested catches, drops some very easy ones. Many of long catches were wide open bc of irregular passing attack. Ran three routes, vertical, bubble screen, out route. Adjusts to back shoulder body catches well but could do better to high point. Not much burst in first few steps of turn and run after catch. Flashes toughness after the catch, fights to stay up. Long lateral moves, must turn shoulders that direction, not shifty. Very small sample size but flashed bucket catches in traffic. Definitely has not learned how to work back to QB. I do not have luxury that teams do of working him out, putting him through route tree.http://bit.ly/JHwZAV

.

9Alshon Jeffery5.8South Carolina6027/216Simply put, he cannot separate. This was clear in his bowl game effort against Nebraska's Alfonzo Dennard, who repeatedly jammed him at the line of scrimmage. Dennard completely overmatched him downfield, as the receiver created no space against Nebraska's physical corner despite the Cornhuskers' tendency to give South Carolina's quarterback more than seven seconds to throw. Look past the box score and focus on their 1 on 1 matchup. Does not use his large frame effectively, either. Plenty of slow receivers make a living converting catches in traffic, but he loses too many 50/50 balls for that to be the foundation of his game. Receivers with limited separation skills require confident, accurate quarterbacks willing to take chances in tight windows. 20 teams or more are without that kind of QB. Dropped around 25 pounds, will he keep it off? I can only eval the player I have seen on film.http://bit.ly/JZQJlb

.

10Mohamed Sanu5.8Rutgers6014/211Shines in traffic while coming down with contested catches. Adept at sitting in soft zones or creating separation with fluidity and smoothness in his routes while generating just enough space at the catch point. Acceleration worries me after registering a 10-yard split in the 1.65 range, but the way he absorbs contact off the line bodes well for NFL success. The question is if skill-set offers enough special qualities. For a team that is in need of an underneath to intermediate receiver, would instantly contribute and flashes toughness after the catch.http://bit.ly/IFdEAX

.

11AJ Jenkins5.7Illinois6002/190Comfortable in slot & out. Fluid routes, not explosive but exaggerated, very little loss in spd. + catch radius, high/outside, stretches arms even in traffic. Makes the difficult catches. Needs to work back to QB, loses body position, - phys. + vision, YAC, plant & go on jet sweeps. Willing to block. Ceiling WR2, inside and outside option. Shrine Game.http://bit.ly/xuzAaM

.

12Ryan Broyles5.6Oklahoma5101/192Excellent turn and run skills, doesn't look extremely burstful but certainly creates separation in and after routes. Not the best at handling physical play during routes, allows DB to latch on, tries to lean and ripa round jam. One cut run after catch ability. Will go up and make a catch over the middle but ball is jarred loose after big hit. Does get bumped/redirected off route but is persistent. Happy to run down the seam and make those catches. Sits in soft underneath zones in off coverage from slot, shields/braces for contact. Very reliable hands. Lots of routes were quick hitting, too rounded. Very fluid, don't necessarily see exceptional burst/exaggeration. Adjusts to passes in air very well. Makes a lot of body catches, but plenty away from his body, how will he deal with consistent press. Good balance, helps break a lot of tackles for his size.http://bit.ly/IazDAS

.

13Tommy Streeter5.5Miami6047/219Has trouble getting off the line vs press, doesn't use length but absorbs contact and runs around it. Route tree is currently limited, focuses on vertical routes or sitting in soft zone. Can break routes back and flows well to work back to QB. Best when high pointing and catching in traffic with length. + vertical routes, long strides with deceptive speed. Best in the seam and endzone fades, impressive vertical. When not leaving his feet, too many catches are with his body. Impressive size/athleticism/body control. Nice focus in traffic, surprising shiftiness after catch. Slows down on crossing routes, upside bc of rawness. Drew Carter?http://bit.ly/xHa4FQ

.

14Devier Posey5.5Ohio State6015/211Smooth route runner with some burst, exaggeration at top of routes. Lacks run after catch ability, dips shoulder into contact, but once momentum is stopped won't gain many yards. Can get really lazy on his movements, read and glide them off. Thin frame, high posture on initial stem without much initial burst. Reliable catcher over the shoulder, consistent. QB shouldn't put confidence in him to win contested catches.http://bit.ly/IxLqYB

.

15Nick Toon5.5Wisconsin6017/215Injury history. Mainly used as outside WR in Wisc 2-TE offense, faced a lot of press coverage. Hitch in get off at times, long strides getting downfield. Strides hurt him vs press, doesn't use hands enough, works around with feet but lacks qks. Positions himself in front of CBs, uses body. Nice fluidity on sideline comebacks, fails to create that little separation at catch point. Drops some catch-able balls. Not a run blocker despite playing in run heavy offense, does not sustain blocks downfield. Lacks short area qks in slot but fluid/mature. Limited after the catch. http://bit.ly/weI79w

.

16Lavon Brazill5.4Ohio5105/192Experienced and versatile at each WR position. Does not get off in an athletic stance, only adequate burst to eat cushion and little explosion. Unafraid of crossing routes or fighting through trash while working towards QB. Many catches look juggled rather than cleanly caught, too many go to his body. Locates passes over his shoulder or in traffic. Shields with body, but lacks physical play vs jam. Routes lack precision, are rounded or not at full spd. No break away spd after catch but picks up yards with toughness and vision. Has a knack for acrobatic catches, one plant cuts on jet sweeps. Suspect blocking effort. Knee and hand surgeries.http://bit.ly/AFxYId

.

17BJ Cunningham5.4Michigan St.6013/211Adeq get off, wasted hop off the snap, fails to eat up cushion. Best when going up to get balls in contested situations, great timing. Consistently strong hands, plucks balls at highest point away from body but lacks a great vertical. Success vs zone cvg , sits in soft areas. Okay slant route, not very quick/burst but little wasted movement/crisp. Good sideline awareness. Physical with DBs after catch, unafraid of contact. Enough speed to keep same distance from DBs, uses good body position. Doesn't sell double move well.http://bit.ly/yTKNpI

.

18Marvin McNutt5.4Iowa6020/216Long and thick core, beats press with hands and inside release. Comfortable with bucket catches over the shoulder. Plus straight line speed for his size but its speed on breaks that is more of an issue. Run after catch is adequate, runs away or to sideline, occasional stiff arm, breaks a few arm tackles. Takes a few steps to get to full speed, lacks a real burst, ran plenty of bubble screens though. Frequently on the move pre-snap, motion, shift. Rounds off routes, especially double moves. Drops a few easy catches, usually low. Not going to beat you with burst on short routes, instead with body positioning. Glides through routes at times, not sure how crisp he can get. Flips head towards QB/ball quickly. May struggle creating that sliver of separation at the catch point. http://bit.ly/I2X7Eu

.

19Rishard Matthews5.3Nevada6003/217Very indecisive punt returner, hesitates on first move, looking to juke not get upfield. Makes catches away from his body in traffic on curls. Nice burst on third step of short slant but first two weren't crisp. Really fights after the catch, doesn't like to go down. Takes time to get going upfield, first two steps don''t have burst. Plenty of short to intermediate routes in fast paced offense. Footwork slows down at top of route, not crisp feet. Doesn't have a real open field wiggle, runs away from contact or best when fighting through arm tackles. Solid hands catcher. Separates downfield with subtle movements, not burst, tracks over shoulder.http://bit.ly/IaB16B

.

20Juron Criner5.3Arizona6024/224Off the line with very high posture, large target area. Doesn't try to disengage vs physical play downfield enough, lets DBs hands stay on him. Adequate straight line speed for a big man. Very smooth route runner, little exaggeration, glides. Prefers to move laterally after the catch. May be best on underneath routes in the slot. Doesn't high point enough. Too often a body catcher, especially along the sidelines, extend! Routes breaking to outside are rounded. Marginal get off, slow plays quite a bit. Really gets over matched physically by smaller DBs at times. Almost never saw him plant his foot in the ground and go up and get the ball.http://bit.ly/IjqZjo

.

21Jeff Fuller5.3Texas A&M6041/223Very crisp at top of routes at times, plants and cuts but other times multiple steps are needed and occasionally falls. Difficulties separating downfield and/or gaining position on ball. Inconsistent hands are a big issue, not reliable, carries ball away from his body. High points? Rarely see it, prefers to run under. Severely lacks strength, gets held up in routes, can't disengage. Outside release was given to him far too easily. Lacking straight line speed and burst on inside/outside cuts, nest route is a comeback but needs to get CB out of pedal.http://bit.ly/Ie6xkX

.

22Dwight Jones5.2UNC6032/230Solid straight line speed for his size, some lateral wiggle with hops vs closing DBs. Body catches too many passes that should be caught with hands. Not afraid to go over the middle and absorbs contact well after the catch but body catches will be an issue. Not much burst on exaggeration in his routes, rounded but has experience with multiple sets. Makes some outstanding catches in traffic but some real dumb plays at other times. Some good balance to break arm tackles. Bad move attending even that got him suspended in first place. Looked laze at Senior Bowl, lacked effort, consistently overmatched, lazy blocker.http://bit.ly/ITLG1P

.

23Jordan White5.2Western Michigan5116/208Tracks ball over his shoulder very well downfield. Positive body control, especially on low passes. Experienced both outside and in the slot. Rounded cuts from slot, don't see burst to separate. Works well upfield, observant and weaves into open spaces, gets down before contact. Fluid player, weaves behind zones in routes, comfortable with bucket catches. I don't see speed/burst/acceleration, I see smooth, will that be enough to separate in the NFL. Makes adjustments to ball/pass when in tight coverage.http://bit.ly/Ie7EB8

.

24Tim Benford5.2Tennessee Tech5112/205Mostly played outside, limited size/strength vs physical DBs. Thick but gets caught in jam too often. Mature route runner with little wasted movements. Exaggerated cuts, understands when DB is off balance. A bit tentative in traffic, gears down bracing for contact. Makes catches away from his body, even on the move, doesn't use body well enough. Shines ont he sideline, can go vertical or qks on comebacks. Sits in soft zones, won't make a big play unless he makes first man miss. North and south runner, not a blazer, understand limitations. Tracks poor throws well, can adjust. Limited playmaker.http://bit.ly/wMlaOE
