1). Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

A few scouts have swayed a little bit on Williams as the number one receiver in this draft. I did also for awhile, but when you watch his game film it shows a complete receiver who does everything well. Williams is the best in this group at winning the 50/50 balls and is great at gaining yards after the catch. Williams as I said can do it all, he can stretch the field vertically and he can also catch the ball over the middle. Williams will be a great addition to whatever team picks him.

 

2). Corey Davis, WR, Western Michigan

I seem to change my mind constantly about who the best receiver in this class is. The top three are all worthy of a number one ranking.  Williams is long, fast and athletic and will make an immediate impact on whichever team is lucky enough to select him. Davis hauled in 97 receptions for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns and helped lead Western Michigan to the Cotton Bowl. He is a great route-runner and has great hands and deceptive speed. Davis would be perfect for a west coast style offense, but he can play any style. The teams that pass on him will live to regret it.

 

3). John Ross, WR, Washington

John Ross has good hands, runs great routes and is fast. He could be a mismatch weapon as a slot receiver. Ross is a weapon for a team that knows how to use him correctly. Reminds me a little bit of the New York Giants Sterling Shepard and I believe he will be better than Shephard. He could even be the best wide receiver in this draft if he goes to a team that knows how to utilize his abilities.

 

4). Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington                                                                                                                                                                                        Had some trouble separating from cornerbacks in one on ones at Senior Bowl practices but was great in team situations. He will be an excellent slot receiver in the NFL. Runs great routes and very smart. Tough, smart, and great hands which is a lethal combination.

 

5).  Zay Jones, WR, East Carolina

Jones has had such a great offseason that he has an outside shot to go towards the end of the first season. Jones has a great initial burst and separates as good as any wide receiver in this draft, especially late in his routes. He runs solid routes and will be a factor in an NFL offense for the foreseeable future.
