No. 5 Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State—Jacksonville Jaguars
Week 1 Results: 3 Rec, 24 yards, 0 TD
Summary: Blackmon made some plays in the preseason, but he isn't there as a star wideout yet. As a rookie, Blackmon should contribute, but he won't be A.J. Green.
Down the line, look for Blackmon to be a good, consistent receiver. Don't expect elite production or play, though. He isn't physically talented enough to be a truly dominant weapon.
No. 13 Michael Floyd, Notre Dame—Arizona Cardinals
Week 1 Results: Floyd was active but did not record any stats.
Summary: A talented wideout, Floyd is still in need of some refinement. He's big, athletic and can catch, but he needs work everywhere else. It will take time for Floyd to truly produce.
Once Floyd begins to refine his game, Arizona will finally have an explosive wideout opposite Larry Fitzgerald. In fact, the two could be an incredible duo.
No. 20 Kendall Wright, Baylor—Tennessee Titans
Week 1 Results: 5 Rec, 37 yards, 0 TD
Summary: Despite not putting up great numbers, Wright has impressed with his play. He has shown explosiveness, quickness and catching ability.
Already starting, Wright is in line for an excellent rookie season. He probably won't put up 1,000 yards, but he should produce at a high level.
No. 30 A.J. Jenkins, Illinois—San Francisco 49ers
Week 1 Results: Jenkins was active but did not record any stats.
Summary: To date, Jenkins has disappointed. He has failed to work his way up an unimpressive depth chart and hasn't stood out at all. This was a surprise pick at the time, and it isn't looking any better now.
Jenkins still has talent, but he needs to start improving before people lose hope in him. He isn't talented enough to underachieve for too long.
No. 33 Brian Quick, Appalachian State—St. Louis Rams
Week 1 Results: Quick was active but did not record any stats.
Summary: A great talent, Quick has size and athletic ability. He has great potential and could develop into a No. 1 wide receiver.
Coming out of Appalachian State, Quick is raw. He needs to improve in many areas as a wide receiver, but if he does, he could be scary.
No. 43 Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech—New York Jets
Week 1 Results: 5 Rec, 89 yards, 2 TD
Summary: Hill started off his NFL career with a bang, hauling in two touchdowns. There's no denying Hill's outrageous physical talent, but not many expected him to come out of the gates so fast.
If Hill is producing like this as a raw rookie, he could do unthinkable things as he improves his game. There is unlimited potential here.
No. 45 Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina—Chicago Bears
Week 1 Results: 3 Rec, 80 yards, 1 TD
Summary: An incredible talent, Jeffery's only issue in college was weight and conditioning. If he stays in shape, Jeffery could be an absolute beast for the Bears.
Few wideouts offer Jeffery's catching ability. The South Carolina product can play at any level of the field, and he has incredible upside.
No. 54 Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma—Detroit Lions
Week 1 Results: Broyles was inactive Week 1.
Summary: Broyles is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered during his senior season at Oklahoma. The shifty wideout could still contribute as a rookie, though.
In the future, Broyles projects as a slot receiver, but he could be excellent in that capacity. His combination of quickness and consistent hands is deadly there.
No. 63 Rueben Randle, LSU—New York Giants
Week 1 Results: Randle was active but did not record any stats.
Summary: Randle is an excellent athlete with terrific size. He isn't quite ready to start yet, but when he is, he could be something special.
With his physical ability, Randle is able to attack every level of the field. He has legitimate No. 1 wideout upside.
No. 68 DeVier Posey, Ohio State—Houston Texans
Week 1 Results: Posey was inactive Week 1.
Summary: Failing to even dress for his first regular season game isn't a good start for Posey. The talented wideout missed most of his senior season, and it's shown on the field.
Posey has physical ability, no doubt, but he isn't playing up to it thus far. Houston has to be disappointed with what Posey has shown.
No. 69 T.J. Graham, North Carolina State—Buffalo Bills
Week 1 Results: Graham was inactive Week 1.
Summary: It was a surprise when Graham was inactive against the Jets. Graham is an incredibly explosive deep threat with the potential to score at any time. He is one of Buffalo's few offensive weapons moving forward.
No. 83 Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers—Cincinnati Bengals
Week 1 Results: Sanu did not record any stats Week 1.
Summary: After failing to secure the No. 2 wide receiver job, Sanu fell down the depth chart. He could still contribute as a rookie, but he won't be putting up any big numbers.
No. 92 T.Y. Hilton, Florida International—Indianapolis Colts
Week 1 Results: Hilton was inactive.
Summary: Hilton has showed promise, but he hasn't hit the field yet. He still has the potential to be an exciting player.
No. 96 Chris Givens, Wake Forest—St. Louis Rams
Week 1 Results: Givens was active but did not record any stats.
Summary: A quick, explosive wideout, Givens has great hands. He needs to better at running his routes, though. At just 6'0", 198 pounds, Givens is limited by his size.
No. 100 Travis Benjamin, Miami (FL)—Cleveland Browns
Week 1 Results: 1 Rec, 12 yards, 0 TD, 1 CAR, 35 yards
Summary: Benjamin has shown great burst and speed, and he was one of the few exciting players in Cleveland's season opener. It will take time for Benjamin to be anything close to a complete wideout, but, for the moment at least, he's still a playmaker.
No. 104 Joe Adams, Arkansas—Carolina Panthers
Week 1 Results: 3 PR, 28 yards, 1 KR, 31 yards
Summary: Though he hasn't yet made an impact at wide receiver, Adams is already contributing as a returner. The explosive wideout is a potential star out of the slot, and he should make some plays as a rookie even.
No. 107 Devon Wylie, Fresno State—Kansas City Chiefs
Week 1 Results: Wylie was active but did not record any stats Week 1.
Summary: Wylie lacks the size to play on the outside, but he is quick with good hands and speed. In time, Wylie could develop into an excellent slot receiver. He has the ability to burn defenses at all levels of the field.
No. 118 Jarius Wright, Arkansas—Minnesota Vikings
Week 1 Results: Wright was inactive Week 1.
Summary: An explosive player, Wright has potential as a slot receiver moving forward. He doesn't have the size to play on the outside, however.
No. 121 Keshawn Martin, Michigan State—Houston Texans
Week 1 Results: Martin did not record any stats.
Summary: A fourth-round pick, Martin has worked his way up the depth chart and passed third-round selection DeVier Posey. In the future, Martin has good potential as a third or fourth wideout.
No. 122 Nick Toon, Wisconsin—New Orleans Saints
Week 1 Results: Toon was on injured reserve Week 1.
Summary: Toon had a chance to contribute as a rookie, but injuries ended his season. He still has the potential to contribute in 2013.
No. 134 Greg Childs, Arkansas—Minnesota Vikings
Week 1 Results: Childs was on injured reserve Week 1.
Summary: The signs were good before Childs tore both his patellar tendons on one play. Now, Childs will face a difficult road just to play again, much less play at a high level.
No. 152 Danny Coale, Virginia Tech—Dallas Cowboys
Week 1 Results: Coale was on the practice squad Week 1.
Summary: Although he's a quick player, Coale wasn't good enough at anything else to make the final roster. When he improves as a receiver, he could make it as a slot receiver.
No. 166 Marvin Jones, California—Cincinnati Bengals
Week 1 Results: Jones did not record any stats Week 1.
Summary: Some thought that Jones could compete to start opposite A.J. Green. But he is currently buried on Cincinnati's depth chart. He could still rise up and contribute, but that's not looking too likely at the moment.
No. 168 Juron Criner, Arizona—Oakland Raiders
Week 1 Results: Criner was active but recorded no stats Week 1.
Summary: Criner has impressed many with his catching ability, but he failed to make an impact in Oakland's first game. The big wideout will likely produce as the season goes on, though, and he still has starter potential.
No. 183 B.J. Cunningham, Michigan State—Miami Dolphins
Week 1 Results: Cunningham was on the practice squad Week 1.
Summary: After being cut by Miami, Cunningham signed to Philadelphia's practice squad. He struggled with drops throughout training camp and wasn't dynamic enough to warrant a roster spot.
No. 194 Marvin McNutt, Iowa—Philadelphia Eagles
Week 1 Results: McNutt was on the practice squad Week 1.
Summary: A big receiver with good hands, McNutt needs to get better at separating. If he adds more burst or improves as a route-runner, McNutt could add value down the line as a fourth receiver.
No. 198 Tommy Streeter, Miami (FL)—Baltimore Ravens
Week 1 Results: Streeter was on injured reserve Week 1.
Summary: A physical freak, Streeter is a terrific athlete, but he may not be a great football player. He won't see the field in 2012, and he'll need to improve by 2013 to make the roster. There is great deep-threat potential here, though.
No. 206 LaVon Brazill, Ohio—Indianapolis Colts
Week 1 Results: 1 Rec, 10 yards, 0 TD
Summary: Though he probably isn't a future starter, Brazill has impressed coaches and earned playing time. He should contribute throughout the year, but he won't bring great things.
No. 227 Rishard Matthews, Nevada—Miami Dolphins
Week 1 Results: Matthews was inactive Week 1.
Summary: Matthews isn't ready to contribute yet, but with time, he could develop into a role player. The Nevada product is quick and makes plays with the ball in his hands.
No. 231 Toney Clemons, Colorado—Pittsburgh Steelers
Week 1 Results: Clemons was on Pittsburgh's practice squad Week 1.
Summary: A big wideout, Clemons is a good athlete, but he was unable to stick on the 53-man roster as a rookie. Clemons could have potential in the future, but it's hard to be too optimistic about the future of such a late selection.
No. 235 Jeremy Ebert, Northwestern—New England Patriots
Week 1 Results: Ebert was not on an NFL roster Week 1.
Summary: Ebert has since signed to the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad, but his career certainly got off to a shaky start. A fairly talented player, Ebert has a chance of becoming something if given a chance.
No. 238 Junior Hemingway, Michigan—Kansas City Chiefs
Week 1 Results: Hemingway was on the practice squad Week 1.
Summary: Though he spent Week 1 on the practice squad, Hemingway has since been released entirely. The Chiefs clearly didn't like what they were seeing out of the rookie, and his career is now in jeopardy.
No. 244 Jordan White, Western Michigan—New York Jets
Week 1 Results: White was on the practice squad Week 1.
Summary: White is a quick player who lacks deep speed. If he becomes a great route-runner, White could possibly make it as a slot receiver, but he will need to be nearly perfect at everything else to overcome his lack of speed.
