    I really don't think he will be available to use a late rounder on. Hes probably a top 10 or 15 rated WR in the draft. The guy is an exceptional WR and has out preformed Austin this year. Like Austin though he is small at 5'10 and 190. He is a great route runner, fast, physical and has the ability to play outside or in the slot. I would love for the Vikings to get him but we already have Harvin and Wright that basically fit the same mold as Bailey. We need some big bodied WRs who can win jump balls and out muscle defenders. Bailey and Austin are not in that category.

    The only way we draft Bailey or Austin is if we are attempting to build a core of receivers all under 5'10 lol


    I cant wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and were standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and were all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him hes world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.

We will get a compensatory pick for Kevin Williams but don't expect it to be much (6th maybe) since nobody is going to give him a huge contract since he's slowing down now.

    I would be a fan of keeping Williams if we draft somebody new to start and keep him fresh by reducing his snaps. I think he can still be a terror if he's someone we only put out there for passing downs.
    Yes I know Ballard and Guion are 3 techniques and Evans is a NT. It's not my point. Ballard just sucks, he's invisible on the field. I've seen Ballard and Guion get blown off the damn line of scrimmage. So to hell with this 3 technique crap. Guion and Ballard can't stop the run and they don't get enough pass rush to warrant starting. Honestly I could care less if our DT's get sacks. Our ends get plenty of them. I'm sick of seeing the Vikings get run on. At least with Knighton he'd stop the run.

    And on Bailey, I know it's not ideal...but I also had us drafting 2 6-3 WR's. Bailey has got about 20 lbs on Austin, and I get criticized for wanting Bailey over him.

    Bailey has scored 23 TD's this year. I hate that every time people see a WR under 6'0 they peg him in the slot. Does S. Holmes and M. Wallace just play the slot. NO. I just don't like how hyped that Austin is and it seems to me Bailey is the better player.

    Somebody suggested getting Austin, then I said Bailey is bigger and better, then I get criticized for wanted to collect midgets....

    Heres a list of some of the top WRs in next years draft:


    Keenan Allen*, WR, California
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2013): Top 25.

    11/10/12: Allen has been held back by sub-par quarterback play from his brother Zach Maynard, but has remained productive. Allen has totaled 61 receptions for 737 yards and six touchdowns so far this year. He also has averaged 14 yards per punt return with a touchdown. Allen has played a lot better than his stats indicate. He missed the last game with a knee injury and is said to be week-to-week. He may play in one of California's final two games.

    8/17/12: Allen would be the first receiver selected in most draft classes. At the same time, he could easily make a run at being the top receiver even if Woods is in the same draft class. Allen had a very good debut in 2010. He caught 46 passes for 490 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman.

    Allen was even better in 2011, hauling in 98 passes for 1,342 yards and six touchdowns. He is faster than many defensive backs expect and has a second gear to explode downfield. Allen runs the tough routes over the middle and in the shallow part of the field. He is dangerous with the ball in his hands and gets good yardage after the catch.

    Allen is a physical receiver and attacks the football in the air. Some teams will probably prefer him over Woods.

    Justin Hunter**, WR, Tennessee
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2013): Top 25.

    11/10/12: Hunter is gradually regaining his top speed and explosiveness after last year's knee injury. He's totaled 56 receptions for 838 yards and seven touchdowns. Hunter has been playing better in the Volunteers recent games.

    8/17/12: Hunter looked poised for a mammoth season last year, posting 16 receptions for 302 yards and two scores in the first two games of 2011. However against Florida, on a routine 12-yard catch early in the third game, Hunter went down with a torn ACL following a leaping reception. It was a surprising injury as he did not take a shot to the knee, or have another player fall into his leg in a manner that typically causes knee ligament tears.

    Prior to the injury, Hunter looked like a truly rare receiver who is extremely tall, but has the speed of a burner wide out. He had 16 receptions for 403 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman in 2010.

    Hunter is healthy and ready to go in 2012. He played in the Volunteers' full-contact scrimmage without incident. Hunter will match up against the top cornerback in the nation in North Carolina State's David Amerson in Tennessee's first game of the season . If Hunter can regain his pre-injury form, he could be a first-round pick in 2013 or 2014.



    Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

    11/10/12: Williams has resoundingly proven he can produce without Robert Griffin III at quarterback. Williams leads the nation in receiving yardage with 1,340 yards on 71 receptions with 10 touchdowns. He's been phenomenal this season.

    Williams set Big XII records with 17 receptions for 314 yards and two touchdowns against West Virginia. He has been making tough catches in the short to intermediate part of the field while also making long catches downfield. Williams' deep speed has been very impressive this season.

    8/17/12: Williams had a very good 2011 season even though he was the No. 2 receiver, behind Kendall Wright. Williams caught 59 passes for 957 yards and 11 touchdowns. He had 43 catches for 484 yards and four touchdowns in 2010.

    Williams has excellent size with underrated speed that catches cornerbacks by surprise. His straight-line speed is rare for a big receiver. Last year he had a lot of success running just straight go routes down the field. As a sprinter Williams is very fast running down the field, and that catches defensive backs by surprise considering how tall he is.

    Williams also operates comfortably in the short and intermediate part of the field. Baylor has had success with Williams running slants and digs, the staple routes of an NFL West Coast offense. On the more shallow and intermediate routes, he doesn't display the burner speed that he has when running a straight go route.

    However, Williams has enough quickness in and out of his breaks to get separation from defensive backs and get open. He projects as a great red-zone weapon.

    It wouldn't be surprising if Williams' numbers decline without Robert Griffin at quarterback, but if the senior somehow stays consistent, he could place himself firmly in first-round consideration.

    Robert Woods*, WR, USC
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Projected Round (2013): 1-2.

    11/10/12: Woods is less than 100 percent this year; his ankle injury is robbing him of explosion and top speed. He is not the big-play threat as a result and is not getting as much separation from defensive backs.

    Woods still had a great outing against Syracuse. He caught 10 passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns while running the ball once for 76 yards and returned a punt 31 yards. The junior has totaled 59 receptions for 656 yards and 10 touchdowns this year. Woods has only one 100-yard receiving game this season and it came against Colorado.

    8/17/12: Woods caught 65 passes for 792 yards and six touchdowns as a freshman in 2010. To open his sophomore season, he had a record-setting game with 17 receptions for 177 yards and three touchdowns against Minnesota. Woods then broke his own record three weeks later against Arizona, catching 14 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. He put up a total 1,292 yards on 111 receptions with 15 touchdowns last year.

    Woods looks NFL-ready right now as he has speed to burn. Woods easily gets separation from defensive backs as they struggle to turn and run with him. Furthermore, he is very quick in and out of his breaks, with well-developed route running. Woods also has reliable hands and is a scoring threat on any play. He is fabulous as a run-after-the-catch receiver.

    While Woods has good height, he is not overly physical with cornerbacks. Woods seems to prefer to beat them with his speed and athleticism. It would help if he filled out his frame with another 10-20 pounds of muscle for the NFL. If Woods can do that without diminishing his speed, it should help him to defeat jams at the line of scrimmage, and not allow himself to have the play timing disrupted by rerouting.

    DeAndre Hopkins*, WR, Clemson
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Projected Round (2014): 1-2.

    11/10/12: Hopkins started the 2012 season on fire. He became the No. 1 receiver for Clemson as Sammy Watkins started the season suspended and was slow to return to his freshman form. Hopkins picked up the slack and became the top receiver for Tajh Boyd. Hopkins has 1,037 yards on 62 catches and 13 touchdowns in 2012. He's been burning defenses with his deep speed.

    8/27/12: Hopkins is not as talented as Sammy Watkins, but Hopkins is a dangerous receiver in his own right. He was secondary receiver in 2011, but still caught 72 passes for 978 yards and five touchdowns. As a freshman in 2010 he hauled in 52 passes for 637 yards with four scores.

    Hopkins should produce well over the next two years with Watkins drawing constant double teams. Overall, Hopkins has a nice skill set with speed, hands and route-running.



    Da'Rick Rogers*, WR, Tennessee Tech
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 208.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2013): 1-3.

    11/10/12: If Josh Gordon can be a second-round pick after sitting out football in 2011, there is no reason for Rogers not to be at least a second-day pick when he enters the draft. Rogers was kicked off of Tennessee's football team just before the start of the season for failed drug tests, and ended up transfering to Tennessee Tech.

    Rogers has totaled 50 receptions for 765 yards and nine touchdowns for the Golden Eagles. He has a lot to prove off the field, but has first-round talent.

    8/17/12: Rogers became the Volunteers' primary receiver in 2011 after Justin Hunter suffered a season-ending injury in the third game of the year. Rogers had a very good season as a sophomore, totaling 67 receptions for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns despite playing with the backup quarterback for parts of the season.

    Quick and physical, Rogers plays with an edge and some fire. He is a tough receiver that regularly makes highlight reel catches. The sophomore had some off-the-field problems late last year, and his situation at Tennessee is worth monitoring. Rogers will match up against the top cornerback in the nation, North Carolina State's David Amerson, in Tennessee's first game of the sesaon.

    Cordarrelle Patterson*, WR, Tennessee
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Sources told WalterFootball.com before the season that Tennessee had a great third receiver behind Justin Hunter and Da'Rick Rogers. That receiver was Patterson, and after Rogers was kicked off the team, Patterson took his place as the starting X (split end) receiver.

    The junior college product showed off his elite speed and explosiveness when he opened the season by beating David Amerson for a 41-yard score on a go route straight down the field. Patterson took a carry for a 67-yard touchdown later in first quarter. He had six receptions for 93 yards and a score against the Wolfpack. Patterson has totaled 36 receptions for 585 yards and four touchdowns. He's run the ball for 242 yards with two scores.

    Patterson is very fast and explosive. He is raw, but filled with potential and could develop into a first-round prospect.

    Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 209.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Hamilton has 69 receptions for 1,077 yards and four touchdowns so far this year. He had a massive day of 10 receptions for 303 yards and three touchdowns with Rutgers. He followed that up with big games against Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Tulsa. Hamilton has a nice mix of size and speed.

    8/17/12: Hamilton should be the No. 1 receiver for quarterback Tyler Wilson with Jarius Wright, Joe Adams and Greg Childs all having moved on to the NFL. Hamilton caught 34 passes for 542 yards and four touchdowns last season. He had 32 receptions for 630 yards and six scores as a sophomore in 2010.

    Hamilton should produce a big senior season. He has one of the best quarterbacks in the nation as well as a tough running back in Knile Davis to force some eight-man fronts.

    Jared Abbrederis**, WR, Wisconsin
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Early in the season, Abbrederis had a mild concussion against Oregon State, and Wisconsin really missed him when he was out. He has totaled 37 receptions for 675 yards and five touchdowns thus far in 2012. Abbrederis has consistently produced big plays for the Badgers, averaging 18 yards per catch.

    8/17/12: Even though Abbrederis had less receptions than No. 1 receiver Nick Toon, Abbrederis topped Toon in yardage. The sophomore caught 55 passes for 933 yards and eight touchdowns. He exploited a lot of soft coverage and produced some big plays for quarterback Russell Wilson. Abbrederis also returned punts and averaged 16 yards per return.

    The Badgers lost a lot on offense, so Abbrederis should see more attention from defenses in 2012, but also more opportunities in the Badgers' offense. He had a modest freshman season with 20 catches for 289 yards and three scores. Abbrederis has good size with deceptive quickness.

    Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 176.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.39.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Austin has 85 receptions for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns this year. He also has nine carries for 98 yards. Austin has been an electric play-maker who has been able to consistently produce long scoring plays. He would be higher in these rankings if he wasn't so undersized. There are few receivers who stick in the NFL that are that small.

    8/17/12: Austin is diminutive speed receiver who was extremely productive with quarterback Geno Smith in 2011. Austin caught 101 passes for 1,186 yards and eight touchdowns as a junior. He scored eight touchdowns in his 58 receptions for 787 yards in 2010.

    Austin may not be able to add much weight to his smaller frame and that limits him to probably being a mid-round pick. Still, he is extremely fast and athletic. Austin should produce another big year with Smith at quarterback.

    Stedman Bailey*, WR, West Virginia
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Bailey has been a dominant force in this season. He is one of the most productive receivers in the nation and has torched defenses with his deep speed. Bailey has 61 receptions for 830 yards and 15 touchdowns. He had 13 catches for 303 yards and five touchdowns against Baylor.

    8/17/12: Bailey was a big-play receiver for the Mountaineers and their potent passing attack last season. He caught 72 passes for 1,279 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    Bailey is very fast and has enough size to be a speedy slot receiver in the NFL. He hauled in 24 passes for 317 yards and four touchdowns as a freshman in 2010.

    Former teammate Keith Tandy told Walterfootball.com that Bailey is an excellent route runner who has great hands. If everybody stays healthy, the junior should have a huge year. He has one of the best quarterbacks in college football to work with in Geno Smith.

    Marcus Davis, WR, Virginia Tech
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 232.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Davis is a big wide out who has some speed and explosiveness. He is the Hokies No. 1 receiver in 2012 and would have even more production if quarterback Logan Thomas wasn't struggling with his accuracy. Davis has 36 receptions for 686 yards and four touchdowns this season.

    Davis was a backup to Danny Coale and Jarrett Boykin over the past few years. Davis had 30 catches for 510 yards and five touchdowns last season. He had 19 receptions for 239 yards and two touchdowns in 2010 as a sophomore.

    Jordan Matthews*, WR, Vanderbilt
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2012): 2-3.

    11/10/12: Matthews has started the year strong for the Commodores. He contributed to Vanderbilt almost upsetting South Carolina in the season opener. Matthews showed nice speed with a 78-yard touchdown. He totaled eight receptions for 148 yards. Matthews also played well against Florida with eight catches for 131 yards and a score. The junior has 61 receptions for 850 yards and four touchdowns.

    Matthews totaled 41 receptions for 778 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore last year. He has a nice combination of size and quickness.

    Aaron Dobson, WR, Marshall
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

    11/10/12: Dobson has totaled 618 yards with two touchdowns on 51 receptions. He has a single 100-yard receiving game this year. Sophomore receiver Tommy Shuler has been the far more productive receivers with nearly 30 more catches and 200 more yards.

    Dobson had 49 receptions for 668 yards with 12 touchdowns last season. He totaled 44 catches for 689 yards and five scores in 2010.

    Tevin Reese*, WR, Baylor
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 165.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.41.
    Projected Round (2013): 2-4.

    11/10/12: Reese has been a big-play threat as part of Baylor's high-powered offense. He has 37 receptions for 682 yards and six touchdowns. Reese has been an effective No. 2 receiver as a complement for Terrance Williams.

    8/17/12: Reese was the third receiver in the Baylor offense, but he still produced last season. Reese caught 51 passes for 877 yards and seven touchdowns. He had 45 receptions for 401 yards as true freshman in 2010.

    Reese is a burner wide receiver who can stretch a defense vertically. He took advantage of a lot of soft coverage as defenses focused on No. 1 receiver Kendall Wright. Reese will be the second receiver in 2012. He needs to add some more weight to his frame.

    Ryan Swope, WR, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2012): 2-4.

    11/10/12: Swope had a disappointing start to the season with little production in the first three games. He bounced back with a big day against Arkansas and played well versus LSU. Swope has had massive games the last two weeks against Auburn and Mississippi State. He has totaled 45 receptions for 641 yards and five touchdowns so far this year.

    8/17/12: Swope was the No. 1 receiver for Ryan Tannehill last year, and produced a superb season. Swope caught 89 passes for 1,207 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has decent size, but also has underrated speed, making him extremely swift in and out of his breaks. His sudden quickness takes defenses by surprise. Swope is very dangerous after he makes a catch and is capable of taking short passes downfield for big gains.

    Swope caught 72 passes for 825 yards and four touchdowns in 2010. He had 19 receptions for 172 yards and a score as a freshman. Swope is a sleeper prospect who could turn out to be a better pro than receivers taken ahead of him.

    Kenny Stills*, WR, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 189.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-4.

    11/10/12: Stills has started the season well. He's totaled 51 receptions for 649 yards and six touchdowns this year.

    8/17/12: Stills had a very good true freshman season in 2010. He caught 61 passes for 786 yards and five touchdowns. The sophomore hauled in 61 passes for 849 yards and eight touchdowns last year.

    Stills had a huge game against Florida State in 2011, and was the top offensive player that pushed the Sooners to a road win. He also had a big game against Texas Tech, but didn't record a 100-yard game in his last five outings. The change was that Stills saw more double coverage once teammate Ryan Broyles was out for the season with a knee injury.

    Stills should see plenty of good opportunities to improve his numbers in 2012, since Broyles has moved on to the NFL. Plus, Stills has one of the top passing quarterbacks in college football to work with, Landry Jones. Stills should have a productive junior season and could declare early for the 2013 NFL Draft.

    Emory Blake, WR, Auburn
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 193.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-4.

    11/10/12: Blake is a good receiver who would produce a lot more if Auburn had consistent quarterback play. He started the year strong with four receptions for 109 yards and a touchdown against Clemson. Blake has totaled 39 receptions for 609 yards and four touchdowns.

    8/17/12: Blake would be higher in the rankings if he played in a passing-based offense. Blake caught 32 passes for 526 yards and eight touchdowns in 2010, when the Tigers had Cam Newton.

    Blake totaled 36 receptions for 613 yards and five scores last year. He missed three games with injuries. Blake has some big-play ability to go along with his size. He had a 94-yard touchdown catch, the longest play from scrimmage in Auburn history.



    Marquess Wilson*, WR, Washington State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2013): 3-5.

    11/10/12: Wilson is in the middle of a controversy as Washington State claims to have suspended the receiver, while other reports say Wilson quit the team. Reportedly, he has clashed frequently with the new coaching staff this season.

    Wilson has 52 receptions for 813 yards with five touchdowns thus far in 2012. He's had some good games and been held in check a few times. Washington State's quarterback play has been inconsistent.

    8/17/12: Wilson had an excellent freshman season in 2010, catching 55 balls for 1,006 yards and six scores. He built on that success by becoming one of the most productive receivers in the nation last year, making 82 receptions for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns.

    Wilson is a big target who needs to fill out his frame with some more muscle. He has excellent hands with top-notch body control and that makes him dangerous in the red zone.

    The one big concern with Wilson is his speed. He doesn't seem to get lots of separation and looks like he lacks explosiveness. Wilson routinely makes contested catches over defensive backs, but it would be good to see him work himself more open.

    Conner Vernon, WR, Duke
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2013): 4-5.

    11/10/12: Vernon has been very good for Duke this season, but was shut down by Florida State and defensive backs with NFL potential. He has 59 receptions for 808 yards and five touchdowns.

    8/17/12: Vernon had 70 receptions for 956 yards and six touchdowns in 2011. He had a quality game against Stanford with six catches for 98 yards.

    Vernon is a sleeper receiver who has a nice combination of size and quickness. He passed up teammate Donovan Varner as Duke's top receiver in 2010. Vernon led the Blue Devils with 73 receptions for 973 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore. That came after a solid freshman year of 55 receptions for 746 yards and three scores.

    Josh Boyce*, WR, TCU
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
    Projected Round (2013): 4-6.

    11/10/12: Boyce has 50 receptions for 687 yards and seven touchdowns this year.

    8/17/12: Boyce had a solid debut as a redshirt freshman in 2010. He caught 34 passes for 646 yards and six touchdowns with Andy Dalton at quarterback. Boyce was a good weapon for Casey Pachall last year, hauling in 61 passes for 998 yards and nine touchdowns. Boyce had a massive game with five receptions for 163 yards and three touchdowns against Boise State. He has some real speed to burn.

    Keenan Davis, WR, Iowa
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2013): 4-6.
    11/10/12: Davis has 44 receptions for 543 yards and a touchdown this year.

    8/17/12: Davis was a nice complement to Marvin McNutt last year. Davis hauled in 50 receptions for 713 yards and four touchdowns. He needs to step up his production this season as the No. 1 receiver. Davis looks more like a potential possession receiver.

    Dan Buckner, WR, Arizona
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-6.

    11/10/12: Buckner has played pretty well with 54 receptions for 678 yards and three touchdowns thus far in 2012.

    8/17/12: Buckner was the complement to Juron Criner but was still was a solid contributor in 2011. Buckner hauled in 42 passes for 606 yards and two touchdowns.

    It could be a challenging senior season with Arizona breaking in a new quarterback. Nick Foles threw the ball a lot the past few years and the passing game will probably be decreased this year.

    Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-6.

    11/10/12: Patton has played really well this season with 75 receptions for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns.

    8/17/12: Patton, a junior, was very productive in his first season at Louisiana Tech, making 79 receptions for 1,202 yards and 11 touchdowns. Mississippi State cornerback Johnthan Banks, a potential first-round pick, said that Patton was the best receiver he played last year.

    Patton played his first two seasons at Coffeyville Community College. He needs another strong season to help his draft status.

    Chad Bumphis, WR, Mississippi State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2013): 5-7.

    11/10/12: Bumphis has caught 34 passes for 536 yards and seven touchdowns this year.

    8/17/12: Bumphis was Mississippi State's leading receiver and punt returner in 2010. He caught 44 passes for 634 yards and five scores. Bumphis also led the Bulldogs as a freshman with 32 receptions and 131 yards.

    The junior only had 25 catches for 339 yards and three touchdowns last season. Bumphis was significantly limited by poor quarterback play.

    Alec Lemon, WR, Syracuse
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 202.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2013): 6-7.

    11/10/12: Lemon missed the first game of the season with an injury, during which quarterback Ryan Nassib set school records for attempts and passing yards in a game. Lemon has totaled 569 yards and three touchdowns on 44 receptions in 2012.

    8/17/12: Lemon had a productive junior season last year, catching 68 passes for 834 yards and six touchdowns. He had some contributions as a sophomore, hauling in 38 catches for 451 yards and four touchdowns. Lemon needs to have a bigger senior season to help his draft status.

    Tarvarres King, WR, Georgia
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2012): 6-7.

    11/10/12: King has 27 receptions for 551 yards and six touchdowns right now. He has been disappointing thus far. King was shut out by Florida with underwhelming performances against South Carolina and Tennessee.

    8/17/12: With A.J. Green and Kris Durham having graduated, King was the No. 1 receiver in 2011 for quarterback Aaron Murray. However, King didn't produce as much as expeceted. He had modest results last season, snagging 47 receptions for 705 yards and eight touchdowns. The redshirt junior had a huge game against Michigan State in the Outback Bowl with six receptions for 205 yards and a score.

    King was the third receiver in 2010, catching 27 balls for 504 yards and three touchdowns. He had 18 receptions for 377 yards and one score in 2009.



    Roy Roundtree, WR, Michigan
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 177.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2013): 7-FA.
    11/10/12: Roundtree has 15 catches for 239 yards and a touchdown this season.

    8/17/12: It would be interesting to see what Roundtree could do if he played in a passing offense. Roundtree's production fell dramatically in 2011. He only caught 19 passes for 355 yards and two touchdowns.

    That's big difference from Roundtree's impressive season for the Wolverines in 2010. He caught 72 passes for 935 yards and seven touchdowns. Roundtree even set a Michigan record for receiving yards in a game with 246 against Illinois. He has some good speed, but should add some weight for the NFL.

    Andre Debose*, WR, Florida
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 191.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.38.
    Projected Round (2013): 7-FA.

    11/10/12: Debose has been phased out and passed up on the depth chart for the Gators. Plus, their passing offense has been spotty with sophomore quarterback Jeff Driskel. Debose has two catches for 11 yards. He has had some success as a kick and punt returner.

    8/17/12: Debose showed what he is capable of last season when he, separately, burned both LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne and Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick for 65-yard touchdown receptions in back-to-back games. Both Claiborne and Kirkpatrick were top-20 picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.

    Debose caught 16 passes for 432 yards and four touchdowns as a redshirt sophomore last year. He also returned kickoffs and averaged 27 yards per return. His production could've been even greater, but the Gators had spotty quarterback play from John Brantley and two true freshmen signal-callers.

    If Florida's quarterbacks play well in 2012, Debose has the talent to put up some massive numbers with long touchdown receptions. He is an elite-speed home-run threat in the mold of other recent Gators play-makers like Chris Rainey and Percy Harvin.

    Jaz Reynolds*, WR, Oklahoma
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 198.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2013): FA.

    9/15/12: Reynolds has the talent to be a second-day pick, but off-the-field issues are killing his stock. He was suspended indefinitely after repeated run-ins with the Sooners. Reynolds has to get on the field and produce in order to get drafted.

    8/17/12: Reynolds should be the Sooners No. 2 receiver in 2012 after being the third receiver as a sophomore. He still had a quality year despite less targets, hauling in 41 passes for 715 yards and five touchdowns. Reynolds caught 13 passes for 256 yards as a freshman in 2009. He is a quick receiver with good size who gets separation from defensive backs. Reynolds should produce in 2012 and he could have more upside than Stills.

    i have a gut feeling we are going defense, im not sure why, but i know we need to get younger on the dline, and the secondary still needs work plus linebackers are needed, id prefer going after mike wallace or dwayne bowe so we can have a proven deep threat.

    haha, yeah me to man. I love when I'm not alone. Warmack next to Kalil and Sully. Wow. The reason AD is better this year is because the line has improved in run blocking even without good G play.

    This is the 49ers model. In 2010 they drafted Davis and Iuputi in rd 1. Get the offensive line working and everything else on offense falls into place.

    I was watching some T. Wilson film, and Cobi Hamilton really jumped out at me. I'd love to get him in the middle rounds. There are a lot of WR's in this draft that would dramatically upgrade the position.

    How much are we paying Jenkins, and for how long?

    Now I want the draft to look like this...if it were top 15
    1.Hunter
    2.T. Wilson
    3.C. Hamilton

    But if we pick in closer to the 20's
    1.Move down
    Late 1-Warmack
    2. Patterson
    2. Wilson

    They say that this is a weak draft class for WRs but I see some exceptional talent that should be around in the later rounds. We need to solidify our O-line with Chance Warmarck or Jon Cooper. I think Schwartz will be a solid RG for us next year. Can you imagine what AP can do with an Oline of Kalil, Warmack/Cooper, Sully, Schwartz and Loadholt? 3,000 yards or bust! haha

    The 3rd and 4th rounds should provide us with very good talent at WR. I read an article talking about Tavarres King and how he could be a steal. He just posted nearly 150 yds on Milliner and CO. for 'Bama. With no "Greens or Julios" this year, I say we roll the dice with some lesser known studs in the mid-rounds. Hamilton/King in the 3rd round and hopefully Rogers/Patterson from the Tennessee area in the second rd. or so.

    The draft can never come too soon!
    Catch 22: run or pass, you're screwed either way!

    I watched a lot of Georgia games this year mainly to watch Murray. Im not to crazy about Kings nfl future, but I'm really high on Hamilton. I think he could be a steal. He is a very good yac guy, he runs aggressive and has amazing burst. I'd love Patterson and Hamilton in this draft.

    Totally agree with you on drafting Warmack. SF drafted 2 o lineman rd 1 in 2010 and since then they have been as good as any team in the league. We make our running game, which is probably already top 3 and make it even better.

    Some mock drafts have us taking the MLB from Georgia. Although Warmack would make for a Killer Guard for years and years. I just don't see Warmack falling to us unless we loose alot of our games left in the season.
    To me, picking up Dwane Bowe and drafting the kid out of Baylor fits nice for an awsome upgrade at WR. There really is no Guards in FA next year so Guard might be our best option in round ONE.
    MLB has to improve. so does our OLB possition.
    What do you guys think of SS Zeke Motta out of ND for an upgrade at Safety?
    He is ranked really low on alot of Draft rankings but I love the guy. He is such a sideline to sideline hard hitting Safety. a hidden gem if you ask me.
    I think he could be just as valuable as Harrison smith. Smith and Motta are great friends and know each others style. those two back there would be a great tandem.
    Anyone who knows ND football knows number 17 out there.
    He is always around the ball and having Smith and Motta together would be a dream come true for me. This kid has sooooo much upside and nobody draft wise is talking about who I think is the best Safety in ncaa football.
    Flash!...... Aaha!!

    Lets hope he continues to go unnoticed so we can snag him in the later rounds! And I seriously would LOVE to get Bowe, but that man is going to be craaaaazy expensive. I hope we don't draft a MLB in the first, the only one I would want is Manti but that isn't going to happen.

    Think any of our higher-priced vets would take a pay cut to help the team sign better players? Cuz we need to get to the 'ship!

    Ok as of right now we are sitting I believe in the #17 spot for the draft. I'm going to do a couple of mocks but just going off of some player rankings and also taking best available regardless of what we might need.
    1st mock
    1. Justin Hunter, WR
    2. Sylvester Williams, DT
    3. Kenny Stills, WR

    I don't think we'll address the WR in the FA offseason. I have seen a lot of chatter about Greg Jennings but I'm thinking he'll be asking too much. Also I'm just not sure if he's a true #1 guy that we need. He just happens to play in a great system and QB so not sure if that would translate to us unfortunately. I think we could look OL help thru FA or later rounds as well.

    Keenan Allen - WR - Golden Bears

    Cal junior WR Keenan Allen has declared for the 2013 NFL Draft.
    Allen finished the season on the sideline due to a PCL injury, but there is plenty of tape on the junior for evaluators to get a good feel for him. From a scouting perspective, Allen was somewhat unlucky to be catching passes from an erratic quarterback in Zach Maynard, but he possesses ideal size and creates separation with a nice burst out of breaks. We expect Allen to be one of the top names in the receiver group throughout the process.
    rotoworld

    Right now Allen is my early favorite in the first round.


    I cant wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and were standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and were all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him hes world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.
