2015 WR-s Prospect Grades (FINAL)

Date:
April 24, 2015

Here are a few notes to consider about our current WR-s grades:

-- It might seem crazy for small school WRs Damarr Aultman and DeAndre Carter to be in our top-5. They are not in anyone else’s (nationally) top-100+ WR ranks. We absolutely believe if you took either guy and dropped them into Alabama or USC or Florida State for their careers, and they would be in this argument as legit prospects today. They are no guarantee by our computer models on either, but if we had to bet—we’d bet on them given the data and forecasting we have.

 -- The WR to watch from #15 ranked or lower…we’re kinda intrigued with/miffed by South Carolina's Damiere Byrd—a 40-time in the low 4.3s/high 4.2s with a 42” vertical. He had some nice plays at South Carolina, but that’s the problem…it was just a few moments, and a lot of nothing.  

 -- The bigger name most likely to be a bust: Our computer says Jamison Crowder, which is a shame because he has solid tape. His measurables make him untouchable for us. He might be better than the measurables, but I’ll take the guys from Maine and Sacramento State as 7th-rounders…you take Crowder in the 3rd.
