Ranking the WRs in the 2012 NFL Draft

Updated 4/30/2012

The 2012 WR class is a very deep group. It doesn’t have the level of talent at the top that the 2011 class did, though — with AJ Green and Julio Jones as two of the best rookie WRs of the past decade.

As far as immediate help, I’d say there are only a few choices, though — Blackmon, Floyd, Hill and maybe Kendall Wright. But guys like Rueben Randle, Nick Toon, Mohammad Sanu, Marvin Jones, and Alshon Jeffrey could become at least WR2s in the next few years. The top 15 or so are likely to be valuable WR2 or WR3-level players on most moderately sized dynasty-league rosters. And I’m keeping my eyes on anyone in the top 30 of this list because they could easily become contributors.

  1. Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma State, Jaguars
  2. Stephen Hill, Georgia Tech, Jets
  3. Michael Floyd, Notre Dame, Cardinals
  4. Alshon Jeffery, South Carolina, Bears
  5. Kendall Wright, Baylor, Titans
  6. Nick Toon, Wisconsin, Saints
  7. Marvin Jones, California, Bengals
  8. Rueben Randle, LSU, Giants
  9. Mohamed Sanu, Rutgers, Bengals
  10. Juron Criner, Arizona, Raiders
  11. DeVier Posey, Ohio State, Texans

  15. Junior Hemingway, Michigan, Chiefs
  16. Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M, Dolphins
  17. Tommy Streeter, Miami, Ravens
  18. Brian Quick, Appalachian State, Rams
