Malcolm Kelly is by far the #1 there especially if him and Manningham come out. Maybe Manningham would jump in front of him if he stays, but right now, Manningham is #1. Douglas will be a terrific slot receiver in the NFL, but his size (5'11'') reduces him from a #1 receiver role.

For me it goes

#1 Kelly
#2 Bowman
#3 Douglas
#4 Manningham

Kelly is the best.. Bowman is a close second in my mind but doesnt have kellys speed. Douglas is smallish to be a number 1 recevier "idealy" and manningham hasnt proven enough for me to warrant him near the top.

I think it's pretty ridiculous having James hardy that low. Did you see what he did to Justin King?

Amarri Jackson shouldn't have anyone behind him. The NFL doesn't need another WR who blocks fantastically and jumps high, but is useless at everything else.

I'd probably rank the Wr's based on how you have it up there - Kelly, Douglas, Bowman, Manningham. I think Douglas and Bowman are close, though, so it would depend on what suited the team better.

If Kelly comes out, he's got a shot at top 20. For him to go top 10, he'd really have to post a superb 40 time, a time few expect right now. Even in a weak class as such, he'd really have to standout to push into the top 10. Not ruling it out, but not sure it happens.

Im a Michigan fan and I think James Hardy is without a doubt a better WR than Mario Manningham. They seem to play at the same speed and Hardy has about 7-8 inches on him. Hardy has better hands as Mario either has suspect hands or suspect concentration.

I think Hardy is a beast, only been playing WR for like 2 years and has the best physical tools ive seen in a WR not named Calvin in a long time.

It is pretty rediculous how underrated and under appreciated Hardy is.

Hardy has such great hands, he rarely lets it get to his chest. Pretty good speed, hard to judge though. Perfect body control and uses his frame to the maximum.

I wouldn't be surprised if he is better than all the guys ranked ahead of him.

I agree completely. Its not like he hasnt had the production either. He has 10+ td's in all 3 of his years in the Big 10, currently has 750 yards and 11 td's (with a running QB tossing it to him). With that basketball athleticism, huge frame, & great hands I think he will dramatically increase his stock at the combine when he decides to leave IU and be drafted higher than the vast majority of these guys.

Bowman has been playing lights out so far..i would say its a tie between him and Kelly..

I like Devin Thomas a lot as a sleeper. The guy makes plays on a poor team.

my top 10 receivers:

1. DeSean Jackson*
2. Malcolm Kelly*
3. Earl Bennett*
4. Adarius Bowman
5. James Hardy*
6. Early Doucet
7. Mario Manningham*
8. D.J. Hall
9. Limas Sweed
10. Harry Douglas

Of the 5 juniors I ranked, I don't see Hardy coming out as Indiana is getting better and will have a real good team probably next year. Mario Manningham can go either way as well as Bennett, but I have a feeling Mario will stay and Bennett will come out. I see both Jackson and Kelly coming out as there is a good shot both can go in the top 20.

Strictly as prospects I'd have Malcolm Kelly #1 and James Hardy in the top 5.

i swear to god jordy nelson is like the most underrated guy in the draft right now; how is he not a top 10 reciever? He's big, productive, crazy fast, has good hands and had a tremendous game against a team with argubaly one of the top corners in the country. And before people jump all over me for calling him crazy fast, his 100 time is comparable to top speedsters in the nfl. There is seriously NO way that he shouldnt be a top 10, probably top 5 reciever in the draft.

Will Franklin is a top 10 WR, for sure

Can't really argue it.

Malcolm Kelly is the #1 prospect if he comes out.

I can't tell if Hardy is coming out. It depends on how the year ends. As much as I have watched Hardy, I don't know a ton about his personality. I think he has a good relationship with Kellen Lewis so that may make him stay. However, with the death of coach Hep, the team is going to either keep Lynch or get someone new. I think his decision will have a lot to do with who is coaching next year. I hope he stays though, we really need him to continue to have success.

This years group of receivers seems stacked though. Anyone know what next year will be like?
