Just don't see Gilyard being better than Tate, Benn, LeFall, or D. Williams. I like him and we will be a good pro receiver but I don't see him being drafted higher than those guys...Tate and Benn for sure. Otherwise I like most of the rankings, nice job

HUH? Mardy Gilyard is a beast! I think he'll solidify himself around the top after the combine.

How were you able to rank these guys? Especially the lower ranked players? Do you know them well enough to distinguish the grading between these rankings or is this some regurgitated list?

Just wondering . . .

I've seen most of them play, and those who I didn't see play, I went by stats and measurables. And I used Scott and another site's rankings as a base.

I take Benn over Gilyard any day of the week, and probably Tate depending on needs/offense.

Damian Williams isn't going to be a 1st rounder, or late 1st if he is, but I can't imagine any team not loving him once he's in camp. Silk.

And i agree with above post...Barnes is too low.

Briscoe at 7??? What makes you feel that he's a greater option than even someone like Damian Williams?

Demaryius Thomas still getting zero love. He'll be much better than the 12th WR in this draft.

My top 10s a little different than yours. Good work, but there's a lot of differences that I can see..
1. Dez Bryant, 1st round
2. Golden Tate, 1st round
3. Arrelious Benn, 1st round
4. Mardy Gilyard, 1st round
5 Damian Williams, 2nd round
6. Brandon Lafell, 2nd round
7. Demaryius Thomas, 2nd round
8. Jordan Shipley, 3rd round
9. Eric Decker, 3rd round
10. Danario Alexander, 3rd round

Damian Williams isn't going to be a 1st rounder, or late 1st if he is, but I can't imagine any team not loving him once he's in camp. Silk.

Benn is a better athlete, faster, can jump higher, and runs with more power. Meanwhile, Mardy Gilyard is a much, much, better wide receiver. Benn is a natural catcher of the ball. Much like Darrius Heyward-Bey, Benn waits for the ball to get to him and quite often uses his body, not his hands to catch.

Gilyard catches better, runs better routes, and has an overall better understanding of the receiver position. While he may not be as fast or athletic, his field vision and quickness is better than Benn and this makes Gilyard more dangerous with the ball in his hands.

Compare DHB to Qustin Collie. A year ago as prospects I doubt anyone had Collie ahead of DHB. I know they've only played 1 season in the NFL, but would anyone here take DHB over Collie now?

cant wait for hudgins to get his chance to perform at the combine. he may not run a spectacular 40 but hes going to beast the drills.

He's seems more like a fullback/H-back than he does a WR. In fact, I see no way he plays WR in the NFL. Even him having a career in the NFL is a bit of a stretch.

Ryan Wolfe out of UNLV has some serious skills.
#43 is way too low..
He runs sharp routes, has great hands, terrific balance, and has been super consistent. Obviously he didn't get much attention because he played at UNLV.. Deserves a top 20 rating IMO,

Only one I like better is Williams. Gilyard and Williams are the most polished WRs in this draft...

Someone compared Benn to Bryant Johnson the other day, and it really kind of fits.

DeMaryius Thomas is getting screwed in these rankings. He should be in the top 8.

I think that list will go through some changes after the Senior bowl and combine. Two guys i see moving up on people's boards are Jacoby Ford and Riley Cooper, those two can really fly.

All things being equal Decker is the much better receiver. Problem is he may have a hard time staying healthy. Cooper probably is a better compliment to someone on the other side of the field that runs great routes and Decker probably just the opposite.

decker is a guy who can take over games and is more gritty, riley cooper is more of a complemental guy, they ought to be valued different for different teams. In general I rate decker over cooper though.
To give an example for my point.

for the saints/pats/chargers cooper would be the better fit cuz they can use yet another weapon to sufflicate opponents with many guys who win 1-1's

ravens/dolphins/browns on the other hand need more of a playmaker/somebody to build a receiving game around and in that perspective I like decker more

I wouldn't mind Baltimore taking Decker in the 3rd, and saving the first 2 rounds to address DE/TE/CB.. Decker is a really tough guy, I've seen him get laid out time and time again and continue to play in the game, definitely1 of my favorite WRs in this class
