Draft Preview: Notable Wide Receiver Highlights

Amari Cooper

This junior out of Alabama won the Belitinicoff award as the nation's top WR with 124 catches for a mindboggling 1,724 yards and 16 touchdowns. He runs the entire route tree and lines up inside and outside, making him a safe bet to be productive in the NFL. A smart player and good route runner with excellent hands, Cooper has good speed and quickness that falls just short of elite.

Kevin White

With only two years at West Virginia after transferring from Lackawanna College, White exploded with 109 catches for almost 1,500 yards and 10 touchdowns as junior. With a scouting combine-best 4.35 40 yard dash, he has top-end speed and great size at just under 6-3. He greatly improved as a route runner in 2014 and goes up to get the ball well. A top ten pick.

DeVante Parker

At 6-3 and 209 pounds from Louisville, Parker averaged nearly 20 yards a catch in his senior season despite missing the first seven games of the season due to a foot injury. He was dominant when he returned, averaging nearly 150 yards per game. With a big wingspan and make-you-miss skills, he is a big play threat, even with his occasional concentration drops. A top 15 pick.

Dorial Green-Beckham

A physical specimen at 6-5 and 237 pounds, Green-Beckham still ran a 4.49 at the combine. No one doubts his physical talents but there are questions about being dismissed from Missouri after his sophomore year due to off the field incidents. He didn't play last year after sitting out due to transfer rules but entered the draft anyway. A classic high risk, high reward player.
