When it comes to wide receivers freakish size and 40 times gets you drafted but great route running, great hands, and versatility keeps you on a team and extend your career. Sammy Watkins is in a class of his own and is by far the best of the bunch. Odell Beckham runs good and multiple routes, has great hands and is versatile on special teams. The more I watch him the more I like him, he may never physically dominate with power but I think he has a long career. Mike Evans is a physical specimen and had a productive college career. Marquise Lee had a down year, but his talent was still there, if he gets with a good quarterback he could be the most productive of the bunch. I dropped Kelvin Benjamin off and added Cooks because Benjamin just doesn’t run routes and drops way to many passes. Cooks is ready to go, he can contribute day one and can play multiple spots. The comparisons to Steve Smith are accurate and if Cooks is there when Carolina picks he could be headed to Charlotte. He has great body control on the sidelines and great run after the catch ability. While at Corvallis the former Beaver caught 226 catches/3,272 yards/24 TDs.
