Cody Latimer: 6'2 215 lbs, 4.4 speed could be there when we pick in the 3rd, even tho a lot of experts believe he COULD go late first to early-mid 2nd. looks like a very good prospect. I think he has some drop issues but I gotta look into that to make sure

BDenny29: All this talk of a "big" WR...do you think they could just take a really good shorter WR like Lee or Cooks in round 1, if/when Evans is off the board?

Ed Bouchette: I think if they have a higher-rated cornerback, they should take him. I agree on the tall wide receiver. Take the best. Limas Sweed was tall.

2014 NFL Draft: Matt Miller's Latest Scouting Notebook

By Matt Miller , NFL Draft Lead Writer Apr 4, 2014

Risers:

WR Davante Adams, Fresno State

Want the next Michael Crabtree? That's who Davante Adams compares to. The Fresno State wide receiver has strong hands, very good jumping ability and is faster than expected. He also brings considerable upside as a redshirt sophomore entry into the draft.

Current ranking: No. 29

WR Mike Evans, Texas A&M

Evans has long been in my top 10, but the more I watch his game (and focus on him and not Manziel), the more I like. Evans has big, strong hands, and while he's not super fluid in space or overly quick, his straight-line speed is good enough to separate from defenders. Combine the hand strength, speed and size and you have one heck of a nightmare for defenders.

Current ranking: No. 7


Fallers:

WR Allen Robinson, Penn State

A deep overall wide receiver crop moves Allen Robinson down after further review. While Robinson does show good hands and over-the-middle ability, he lacks the top-end speed to consistently pull away from defenses. With so many higher-level athletes at the position also in this class, Robinson sees his stock fall slightly.

Current ranking: No. 56 overall

WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt

Matthews, like Robinson, moves down this week by virtue of the overall talent in this year's corps of wide receivers. Matthews isn't a top-flight runner and doesn't make great plays after the catch, which can be a concern given the many players in this class who do. Matthews looks to have a solid career, but he's more limited than the players listed ahead of him.

Current ranking: No. 64

I'd love to get Jordan Matthews in the 2nd. Maybe we can trade back a few spots and get an extra 4th and 6th and still get him....

@BLACK_AND_YELLOW I likeed latimore as a 4-6 rounder the beginning of this stuff but I don't like he moved up so far cause of his athleticism

I don't like these fast risers during all the pre draft stuff ... 3rd round comp wouldn't be too bad though I guess , I'd rather have Paul Richardson though

Seems that this guy is being forgot about in this deeeepppp class of WR

Route running √
Hands √+
Speed √+
Only this is he's skinny, but as you can see in the video he beats the jam at the line ...



I'm talking about Paul Richardson

I like a lot of receivers in this draft. If their value is higher than the round dictates. I say pick one.

I really think Jordan Matthews is gonna be a consistent 80-100 catch guy with 8 -12 tds a season.
He's not quick but he knows how to create separation by using his 6 ft 3 frame. And he's deceptively fast like His cousin Jerry Rice.

Leading Wr in Sec history ....with no real consistent qb play.

Another possible 2nd or 3rd round guy.

He reminds me of Josh Gordon ..run after the catch is explosive and physically attacks the ball in the air like Boldin.

A. Rob would tear up for the Black n Gold as well.

Robinson makes a lot of sense in the second round. Here's the thing though - what happens if Tuitt is there? We'd have to push a receiver back to the third round and hope there's still a quality, productive player for us there.

This receiving class is deep, sure, but it's not 5 - 6 rounds deep as some are saying.

I know that's why I say go wr in 2nd these guys are 1st round guys in other years. Hell Cooks is AB 2.0 with greater speed.
De like Clarke , K. MARTIN , ETC WILL be there in the 3rd.

Jmo though. I think the value is at Wr in the second.
