With the completion of the 2o10 NFL Scouting Combine we’ve got some more information about those NFL prospects we covet so much.
This list of lists about the 2010 wide receiver class will make you smarter on draft day:
1. Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State – Discussed in detail in his 2010 Target Dossier.
2. Golden Tate – Bryant is in a class by himself, but Tate is the second most talented receiver in this class.
3. Arrelious Benn, Illinois – A likely second-round pick, Benn could tempt some teams with late picks in the first round. Demaryius Thomas, despite his broken foot, could get picked ahead of Benn.
1. Jacoby Ford, Clemson, 4.28 – It was a team high, but six receiving touchdowns for Ford is hardly noteworthy. However, with a ridiculous 40 time like that, he’ll jump into the second round. As previously suggested here by sockonfl, a team could pull a Darrius Heyward-Bey and make Ford a surprise first-round pick.
2. Emmanuel Sanders, Southern Methodist University, 4.41 — Impressive quickness during the East-West Shrine Game and Sanders 40 time probably won’t be enough to save him from being picked on the draft’s final day. He’s too much of a project.
3. Taylor Price, Ohio, 4.41 – Ohio’s scheme didn’t provide Price with many opportunities to rack up massive yards. He was impressive at the Senior Bowl and may have vaulted himself into the second round. He’s a potential fantasy sleeper out of this wide receiver class.
1. Benn, 20
2. Brandon Long, Louisville, 20 – Not only did he make this list, but Long also ran a surprising 4.46 40. I can’t find much information about him. I’m sure we’ll find out more next weekend… And You’ll read more about him from the combine, too.
3. Donald Jones, Youngstown State, 20 – A small-school player, Jones also surprised with a 4.47 40.
1. Long, 41.5 – So, Brandon Long again? Get used to seeing his name on these lists.
2. Jones, 41.0
3. Alric Arnett, West Virginia, 40.0 — Arnett impressed at the East-West Shrine Game.
3. (tie) Chris McGaha, Arizona State, 40.0 — The terms unrealized potential were used in some blurbs about McGaha. He’s a project, but could be a sleeper pick.
1. Long, 6.45
2. Sanders, 6.60
3. Blair White, Michigan State, 6.69 – A likely third or fourth round pick, White had 70 catches for 990 yards and nine TDs in 13 games for the Spartans last season.
1. Sanders, 10’06”
2. Stephen Williams, Toledo, 10’05 — At 6-5, 199, some team will take a flyer on Williams. Especially because he logged a 4.41 40 before his 4.48 at the combine.
3. David Gettis, Baylor, 10′04″ — Another big receiver (6-4, 215), Gettis should go in the middle of the draft. Playing for a team like Baylor, Gettis wasn’t given much of an opportunity to shine.
1. White, 4.03
2. Long, 4.09
3. Sanders, 4.10
1. Long, 11.06
2. White, 11.07
3. Antonio Brown, Central Michigan, 11.30 — Brown amassed 7,164 all-purpose yards in just three seasons for CMU. He’s not as fast as NFL teams would like out of a player of his size (5-10), but he could help immediately as a returner and develop into more.
