Ranking the WRs in the 2014 NFL Draft

Rankings are as of July 30, 2014.

I’ll be honest — there’s so much talent in this WR class that it was super-hard for me to rank them this year. Outside of the top ten or so, it was even harder.

And I noticed much the same thing happening with other analysts. There is so much less agreement on rankings this year than I can remember. However, a lot will be clearer after the draft.

  1. Mike Evans, Buccaneers
  2. Sammy Watkins, Bills
  3. Odell Beckham, Jr., Giants
  4. Brandin Cooks, Saints
  5. Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers
