NFL Combine: Wide Receiver Measurements

image_pdfimage_print


Behind the QB, the wide receiver seems to be the new high profile position in the NFL. With the league going more pass heavy every year, records are broken and WRs are given more shine. At one point the league was going heavy towards the 6’3, or taller, 215+ pound wide receiver. Because of the emergence of guys like Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr, and Brandin Cooks, the resurgence of quick route runners have returned. There will always be a need for big guys who can bring down the jump ball. But now quickness over size is becoming the new trend for the league.

This year there are 2 WRs that stand out above the rest. Clemson’s Mike Williams and Western Kentucky’s Corey Davis are those 2. Davis will not be at the combine due to injury. However, he’s around 6’2 210 pounds. Williams is the bigger receiver, better with the jump ball, and has faced better competition. Davis is the better route runner of the 2 and if you want someone to get yards after the catch, he’s your guy. There are some other guys that will go in the 1st round and it’s a deep draft for #2 and #3 type WRs, but in my mind, these are the 2 that have #1 wide receiver potential.

Some of the others to keep an eye on are John Ross of Washington, who is a mini Brandin Cooks and Juju Smith-Schuster of USC. There is really too many to name with how deep this draft is. Seven others you might want to keep their name in mind are Cooper Kupp of Eastern Washington, Zay Jones of Eastern Carolina, Carlos Henderson of Louisiana Tech, ArDarius Stewart of Alabama, Curtis Samuel of Ohio State, Malachi Dupree of LSU, and Amara Darboh of Michigan.
