Detroit Lions draft preview Wide Receiver
Deep draft once again at WR. You have big guys for the outside and quick guys for the slot. The Lions need one of each.
Nelson Agholor USC Fast riser, Good speed and open field moves. Can play both inside and out. I think he makes an impact at #3 wr and rises to a good # 2 in the neat future. Pick # 25-40
Kenny Bell Nebraska Productive receiver. Timed better at the combine than he plays. Mid round guy who could make it in the NFL as a rotational guy. Needs to get stronger.
Sammie Coates Auburn Home run hitter. Great straight line speed. Poor route runner and average hands. Has value because he can run but far from polished. Late 2.
Amari Cooper Alabama Smooth, Marvin Harrison type. Productive get open. # 1 receiver #3 overall.
Chris Conley Georgia Freak athlete. Blew up the combine. Not productive in college but the QB play was uneven. This guy has potential but is not a proven talent. I like him at the top of third but might be over drafted.
Jamison Crowder Duke Small, quick slot guy. Has return ability. Not a burner but could be productive inside. 4th round pick.
Geremy Davis UCONN Size and speed. 216 lbs and sub 4.5 40. Looks like a mid round receiver with upside.
Philip Dorsett Miami Love this guy, speed to take the top off. We need a guy like this 2nd round.
Devin Funchess Michigan Tweener who ran much better at his pro day. Big body who can catch in traffic. I see him as move guy rather than a true outside threat. 2nd round.
Antawn Goodley Baylor small but strong 4.44 speed. I see him as a tough inside slot guy who will be productive as a pro. 4th round
Dorian Beckham-Green Missouri Outside receiver with size and speed. Major character issue but has moved past them. A boom and bust guy.
Rashard Greene FSU Slight, productive receiver. Good hands, makes plays. Could develop into Solid # 3 4th round.
Justin Hardy ECU Ultra productive inside guy. Quicker than fast but understands space and concepts. Will play in the league 5th round.
Tony Lippett MSU Athlete. He can play both WR and CB but is he a starter? 4th round.
Tyler Lockett KSU Crazy quick, slot and return guy. Could catch a lot of balls in his career. Gets open. 3rd round.
Vince Mayle WSU underrated athlete. Can play outside but is raw. Big body could develop into # 2. 5th round
Tre McBride William & Mary Outside guy with NFL side and speed. Showed ability to be a solid # 2. 3rd round.
Ty Montgomery. Slight, play maker with return ability, Has struggled with injury. Strong with ball in his hands. 4th round.
JJ Nelson UAB Small burner. Good return man but raw at receiver. Speed might get him over drafted 5th round.
DeVante Parker Louisville. Strong receiver. Catches the ball in the traffic. Has potential to be a # 1 receiver top 15 pick.
Breshad Perriman UCF Speed and production., Fast riser following pro day. Top 25 pick.
Devin Smith Ohio State Great deep ball receiver. Good speed. Adjusts to the deep ball better than most. top 50 pick.
Jalen Strong ASU Big tough outside receiver. Potiential to be a # 1 receiver. Round 1
Jordan Taylor Rice Sleeper. I like this guy. Has great speed and size. More polish than you would think. 4th round
Darren Waller Ga Tech Huge 6'6" receiver. Very raw athlete. Project 6th round.
Kevin White WVU Stud. Size, Speed. Hands My #4 overall player.
