Mark Schofield’s WR Prospect Rankings

Mark Schofield has finalized his WR prospect rankings for the NFL Draft, based on film study of each of these players. Here are Mark’s top 12 WRs in this year’s draft class.

Amari Cooper – Alabama

The most complete wide receiver in this draft class, and one of the closest players to a “sure thing” in this entire draft. Gives an offense the complete route tree on day one of the draft and is the definition of a “plug and play” asset.

Kevin White – West Virginia

A very talented wide receiver with perhaps more upside than Cooper. Explosive receiver on the outside and a threat in the vertical passing game. Elite speed and a truly capable runner after the catch.

DeVante Parker – Louisville

A vertical threat who also poses danger to a defense on slant routes. Started slow in 2014 after suffering a foot injury in the summer, but came on strong as he gained confidence in the health of his lower body. Shined against Florida State’s P.J. Williams in their meeting.

Jaelen Strong – Arizona State

Strong is a dangerous threat and a ball-winner along the sidelines. He is very adept at beating press coverage and developed a nifty inside move against press-man alignment that he can use in addition to pure speed to the outside. Sometimes gets re-routed by more physical DBs but thrives at making contested catches in traffic.

Breshad Perriman – UCF

A burner on the outside, Perriman likely moved into the first round with some impressive 40-yard dash times during his Pro Day. Relies on his speed to beat the press but he needs to develop some variety to his arsenal of moves at the line of scrimmage as physical defensive backs can swallow him up and eliminate him from plays. Struggled at times catching the football and made some crucial drops during the 2014 season.
