Every year future draft picks are talked about in nausea, and every season we see certain rookies emerge right away to have an instant impact for the team that drafted them. Some take a year or two and others never transition to the NFL game. Here are five guys, not the best five or top five rated, but the five guy that I think will immediately reward the team that drafts them.
WR – Mike Evans
The Texas A&M product was productive in his two years with 142 catches 2500 yards and 17 touchdowns. At 6’5 235 Evans used his size to his advantage, he competes for the ball better than any prospect I’ve watched and he comes down with most of them. He will be a 21 year old rookie with his best football ahead of him and I think some might be surprised when he goes in the top 7.
WR – Sammy Watkins
I have tried to devalue Watkins because of how Taevon Austin burned me last year, but I can’t. Watkins catches, runs, blocks, and returns kicks. What will make him better then Austin will be his size and by that I mean his weight/muscle mass. Watkins was ultra-productive at Clemson breaking school records in catches (240) and yards (3,391). Like his former Tiger teammate DeAndre Hopkins, Watkins will make an impact right away on whichever team selects him. Watkins is a top 5 pick.
