1. Keenan Allen, California
Allen is the most pro-ready receiver in this year's draft class.
He is a polished route-runner who possesses above-average speed, good size and excellent hands. His best attributes come into play after he catches the ball, as Allen is an electric player in open space.
Allen is coming off a PCL injury that kept him out of the latter part of the 2012-13 season, but as long as he proves he's healthy during his pro day and at the NFL Scouting Combine, he'll be the first receiver off the board in April.
2. Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
Patterson isn't nearly as polished as Allen, but his athletic frame and pure physical attributes will have scouts drooling.
Patterson possesses a quick first step and explosive speed on the outside. Plus, his ability to stretch the field will be attractive to teams in need of a No. 1 receiver.
3. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
While the first two receivers on this list possess ideal size to dominate the outside in the NFL, Austin is a bit of a pee-wee. At 5'9" and 171 lbs., Austin relies on a different set of skills to get the job done.
First and foremost, Austin can catch the ball. Once that's accomplished, he has elite quickness, agility and elusiveness to exploit bigger defenders.
Think Darren Sproles and Wes Welker wrapped up in one player. He will be a dynamic playmaker in the NFL, as long as he goes to a team that understands how to utilize his rare talents.
4. DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
If Hopkins really applies himself, he could be the best wide receiver to come out of this year's draft class.
At 6'1" and 200 lbs., he's a bit on the small side. Small receivers can be effective in the NFL, but it's harder for them to win consistently on the outside against the big, physical cornerbacks.
His production last season for the Tigers can't be overlooked, as he hauled in 82 passes for 1,405 yards and 18 touchdowns.
5. Justin Hunter, Tennessee
Hunter has ideal size and speed on the outside to make an immediate impact in the NFL, but he lacks the needed strength to beat press coverage.
At 6'4" and 200 lbs., he has a similar look to A.J. Green, but his route-running and overall game falls well short of what Green brought to the NFL a couple of years ago.
Hunter may not be a dynamic player in his first season, but given a bit of time in the weight room and a good wide receivers coach, he'll explode onto the scene in due time.
