Its sort of an interesting season for WRs, you dont have the CJ or the Andre Johnson at the top of the draft but i think you have a ton of depth, these would be my picks at the top, please note they're my picks not what i think teams will do;

Early Doucet, LSU. Has been injured some but i like his combination of speed along with decent size 6-0 210 at the position. Runs well after the catch.

Malcolm Kelley, Okla. Has had a bit of a dropoff this season(for him) but has real good size and i think will run well enough at the combine to get a 1st round call.

Jordy Nelson, KSU. 6-2 1/2 215 WR who i think will run high 4.4s at the combine, very good after the catch where he gets a lot of his yards, will probably end up with about 115 catches for about 1500 yds for the season, for you old timers out there sort of a Kirk Gibson clone.

Desean Jackson, Cal. not big but quick as heck and a great punt returner. He's been off a little this year but i blame the QB there for a lot of that, like him as a late 1st round pick.

Limas Sweed, Texas. coming off injury needs to run well at the combine, has it all as far as body control and size but because of his inactivity he may be a steal at the top of round 2.

Adarius Bowman, Okla St. another injury guy so the combine is probably more important to him than some others, nice combination of size and speed.

I'm not sold on the class overall. Seems like every guy has at least one major problem area.

Steve Johnson from Kentucky is going to be a steal for whoever drafts him. Don't be shocked if he goes in round 2.

Havent seen anything more than an occasional highlight on him. Is he coming out for sure?

idk, but he'd be day one for sure. 6'7 and reportedly runs a 4.4 I think even if he runs a 4.5 at his size and production he should be at least a 2nd rounder.

Most of these guy's are either injured or haven't played well this year. Even though he had a bad game against Ohio State, Mario Manningham has played better than all these guy's. He had a bad game but Jackson and Kelly have had bad or average games the last couple of week's. He's still had the best season for a Michigan receiver since Braylon Edwards. If reedems himself in the bowl game(which I think he will) he'll be atleast a late first round pick.

Just looking at the Kentucky guys I think Tamme can be a good Dallas Clark type guy, while I think Burton and Johnson both can be solid #2 wideouts in the NFL, and in 09 I think Dicky Lyons could be an excellent slot receiver.

Marcus Henry for the Jayhawks is a sleeper...6'4 with 4.4 speed

If Manningham ever takes his head out of his ass he's a 1st rounder.

I left him off my original list one because i didnt know if he was coming out and two the body language at times didnt seem good to me. Your take is even better.

Why does no one ever include Harry Douglas?...that guy is so fast, and has no trouble getting open...plus he has pretty good hands.
