2012 NFL Combine Wide Receivers Previews

Here are some of my expectations for some of the top WR’s at the NFL combine:

-A couple of the top guys like Justin Blackmon and Kendall Wright won’t be participating in all the drills. Beyond that though there is a very strong and deep class. There are a number of speed guys, as well as a number of big receivers.

Michael Floyd is the top receiver expected to fully workout. If he runs a good 40 time Floyd could cement himself as a top 15 pick. I expect him to have a big day and really wow people.

Stephen Hill is a raw prospect who didn’t see a lot of throws coming from an option offense. So while his 40 time should be impressive, the biggest thing that can help him is his route running and his short area quickness.

Brian Quick is a guy who could really move up draft boards. He might not have the fastest time, but he should have nice hands and really impress some people today.

Marvin McNutt won’t have the greatest deep speed but he should look good in the rest of the drills.

Gerrell Robinson should really turn some heads today and I think he will surprise as a later round guy.

Alshon Jeffery and Dwight Jones are two guys who I don’t think will have as good days and could struggle.

Jeff Fuller needs to have a strong day catching the football after struggling with his hands this season.
