The 2013 NFL draft doesn't feature a whole bunch of offensive talent, but there are wide receivers available in the first round that can have an immediate impact.
Free agency could change how the wide receiver class is viewed. With the likes of Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace and Dwayne Bowe all expected to be leave their teams, teams will surely focus on trying to bring in one of those proven talents.
While those guys will add plenty to a new team, they will surely cost a good amount of money. If teams miss out in a bidding war, there are some decent options to be had in the first round.
14.Miami Dolphins–Keenan Allen, California
By drafting Keenan Allen, they get a wide receiver who can grow into the team. Allen is widely regarded as the top wide receiver in the draft because of his complete package. Allen has a good combination of size, speed and ability after the catch to be a successful NFL player. He will be a big help to Tannehill as their careers grow together.
23. Minnesota Vikings–Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
Patterson would be a nice addition to the Vikings roster as a good-sized (6'3", 205 pounds) receiver who is athletic enough to get separation. The biggest knock on Patterson is his route-running, which would hurt Ponder, but that's definitely coachable.
28. Houston Texans–Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Tavon Austin is the perfect player to do this. He's got incredible speed that makes him a big-play threat on every play. He would fit nicely in the slot to give Matt Schaub a dump-off game. His speed and vision could also allow a team to use him in a fashion similar to how the Vikings use Percy Harvin or how the Green Bay Packers use Randall Cobb.
