First Round
1. Marvin Harrison Jr, Ohio State - 6'4, 205 pounds
2. Rome Odunze, Washington - 6'3, 215 pounds
3. Malik Nabers, LSU - 6'0, 200 pounds
4. Keon Coleman, FSU - 6'4, 215 pounds
5. Brian Thomas Jr, LSU - 6'4, 196 pounds

Second Round
6. Adonai Mitchell, Texas - 6'4, 194 pounds
7. Xavier Legette, South Carolina - 6'3, 227 pounds
8. Xavier Worthy, Texas - 6'1, 172 pounds
9. Troy Franklin, Oregon - 6'3, 187 pounds
10. Ja'Lynn Polk, Washington - 6'2, 204 pounds
11. Jermaine Burton, Alabama - 6'0, 194 pounds

Third Round
12. Ladd McConkey, Georgia - 6'0, 185 pounds
13. Dovontez Walker, North Carolina - 6'3, 200 pounds
14. Malachi Corley, Western Kentucky - 5'11, 210 pounds

These are your top WR prospects, according to the ESPN and CBS Sports Big Board. Mitchell and Leggette were ranked in both the 1st round and 2nd round, but I placed them in the 2nd round. Same thing for McConkey, Walker and Corley. Both were listed under 2nd round and 3rd round, so I placed them in the 3rd round.

What are your impressions of the WR class? Are there any wide receivers, you feel are under the radar?

I think this is one of the deeper classes we've seen for some time. While I think Harrison Jr, Odunze, and Nabers are the creme de la creme in this year's draft, there's some damn fine talent right behind them, including some names not listed in that top 14.

This is a great receiving class. I think we will see a lot of receivers taken high, starting with Harrison, who will almost certainly be selected at #4 by the Cards. I think we will see the Chargers and Giants take receivers at #5-#6 as well.

Deep deep class. Tons of good one's here and some team is going to steal a great one.

If I was a GM, Xavier Legette from South Carolina really intrigues me.

Same school as my spirit animal in Deebo Samuel. While maybe not 'as' talented, he makes plays, high points balls and is thick, tough, and nasty.

Same but I'd go for Coleman(produced like a bastard last year). Mitchell or Franklin.

I like my WR's tall and Jump.

Someone will be watching and seeing the ways I get her the ball

I like Coleman. 50/50 balls he is masterful. Extremely athletic, but does not have top end speed. He is Stefon Diggs but taller, and not as physical. His physicality and lack of top end speed concern me quite a bit.

Mitchell. Like this guy a lot. Tough as nails and has strong hands. Competitor. Has some speed and wiggle. He has a high bottom and a potential high end #1WR for a team for a decade.

Franklin is going to run a 4 zero in the combine. Freak speed, freak athleticism. With all that talent and speed, where does he fit in the NFL? Tyreek Hill is tough as nails and can run a route or two. Is this guy willing to take a beating as a slot, cuz he isn't an outside guy.

He is someone who I really REALLY like. Everytime i saw a Florida State game. Heard his name like 20-30 times

Even if it's a medium need. I'm taking him in the first round if he's there

When he was heading to FSU I was hoping he just some overhyped transfer but even looking at his MSU tape he looked legit
Coleman has some insane body control, athletic for a 6'4 WR and was FSU primary punt returner

That shouldn’t be an issue.

I’ve never seen three receivers go 1-2-3.

I’d think you’d be safe trading down to 5 or 6 if he’s your target. Unless the scoring sways heavily to receivers.

His hand skills are insane. Found this from the Michigan vs. Michigan State game.

Is Burton flying under the radar? Seems like the typical character risk guy that should go rd1 but will fall.

I think we could see 8 or 9 WRs going rd1.

We usually get between 1 and 6 taken in the first round. When was the last time we had more 8 or 9?

not bad news for teams needing round one impact and not necessarily at WR. I 'm down with a record number of WR'ers taken in round one.

Coleman is a tough one. He rarely got separation in college and runs poor routes. He seems to have all the tools, but instead relies on physical ability at the catch point. He needs some coaching up IMO.

Depends on the league. Is it superflex (2 QB)? The RBs in this draft aren't early pick worthy (maybe not even a 1st rounder in a dynasty draft), so the WRs will be the priority picks early. I would expect the top 3 to be from Caleb, Nabers, and Odunze with maybe Bowers in that mix if you're in a 1 QB league. TE premium definitely puts Bowers in that mix.

Didn't really produce until his 5th year, which is a bit worrisome. For WR prospects, the earlier the emergence the better typically. Injuries were a factor of course, but that's not exactly a bonus.
