    Nice to see Quinshad Davis getting the love. I like him a lot. Same with Diggs. Green-Beckham needs to get his act together and mature a bit, but no denying his talent.

    Yep. I believe the light came on for Green-Beckham last year. Flashed overwhelming dominance in big games and finally looked like the #1 overall recruit. Needs to turn those flashes into a little more consistency in 2014. He doesn't need to be dominant every game.. just consistent. The ability to be a dominant playmaker is there. He's learning how to work to earn his keep instead of relying on size, speed, and raw talent. He turned a corner last year in terms of effort in my opinion.

    Completely agree. He'll be a fun one to watch this year.

    I love Sammie Coates. Explosive, strong, mean - outstanding with the ball in the air and after the catch. Not an ideal situation for a WR prospect - kind of a modified Calvin Johnson/ Demaryius Thomas role - but I think he'll be worth a 1st. And he plays kind of like a smaller Demaryius Thomas.

    And Green-Beckham has been dismissed from Mizzou. He's wasting his talent with poor decisions.

    If he had been actually charged (other than trespassing) in his earlier run-ins with the law perhaps it would've woke him up. But to continually be given a free slide apparently did nothing to dissuade him. All he has to do is show a little will power and he'll be a multi-millionaire soon.

    He'll go to JUCO, dominate, and be an All-American. From there it's up to him again.

    I can see why Jaelen Strong isn't as high up on the list here as he is with other people.

    A lot of his production strikes me as manufactured. They put him in the slot from a twins look running into zones and that gives him a lot of freedom to get up to speed and in position to use the overall force of his speed and size to go up for high contested catches or to just catch the ball in space with nobody ever having assumed coverage. He catches a lot of his other stuff that way as well, catching the football underneath especially airy off coverage, or running into the holes between cover two and being hit perfectly by Taylor Kelly, etc. The only situation I saw him consistently win in man coverage were back shoulders specifically on the right sideline (not nearly as good on the left sideline). Seems to also have trouble securing the football on drag routes. When he does catch the ball in space he does nothing particularly interesting after the catch.

    He's not very compact in how he runs and I think it makes him predictable and slow into his breaks. He doesn't know anything about using his hands and feet to get away from press coverage and he clearly had issues dealing with jams against a few teams. I don't know if he's ever going to have the agility to create separation in man coverage. He's going to need to get a lot better with his hands creating space for himself against physical coverage, and then he's also going to have to learn to actually finish catches.

    JUCO transfer, still young enough he could improve. Not someone you want to close the book on yet. But also not someone I'm writing home about. Reminds me of Cartlon Mitchell and Martavis Bryant.

    As an ASU alum, I have to agree with your points CK. Strong is a big target, but needs to work more on his catches and the ability to break away from defenders. He is a little overrated but there is room for him to get better. The WR that I really really like is Nelson Agholor. I liked him even more than USC's Marqise Lee, who just got drafted by the Jags.

    5. Nelson Agholor / USC / 6'0", 185
