The NFL draft still may be months away, but prospect rankings are starting to become clearer as each week passes. Yet there is still plenty of time for players to make their mark before the season ends and make a lasting impression on scouts.
One of the NFL's most important positions is wide receiver. Without a top flight wideout who can catch the ball, a quarterback is left hung out to dry. Just look at Sam Bradford for instance. Prior to the arrival of Brandon Lloyd, he was without a threat at the receiver position, and it showed as St. Louis's passing attacking suffered.
Having a dynamic threat lined up on the outside is vital for any team to have long-term success. Let's take a look at the top receiver prospects and which players will be called upon to reinvigorate some teams' passing attacks.
