A lot of stud college WR's can't translate to the NFL. I just don't see him as a special sort of prospect.

how and why is Keenan Allen your #5 WR? and why cant you see Rogers translating to the NFL? has the size, route running skills, physicality, and speed to be a stud WR. and so does Allen.

About the only weakness I can see in Rodgers is he isnt blazing fast. He has everything else you look for.

Size, hands, route running, physicality ect.

Same with Allen.

Two most NFL ready polished WRs in the draft.

I admit my WR rankings are pretty different than most rankings you'll see. I'm just not as big a fan of this class as some are. I see a lot of average prospects all grouped together. The only potential #1 NFL WR's I see are Patterson and Patton. Williams I see as more of a #2 and Bailey as a potentially dangerous slot receiver. Allen is a borderline #1/#2, IMO.

I don't like this class much either. I am a self admitted Deandre Hopkins fan (hate that pitiful excuse for a university he attends though) and believe his stock is going to rise over the next few months, and believe he's probably my favorite at this juncture. I mentioned in the thread on him he's been compared to the Roddy White/Hakeem Nicks cloth because of the height/weight/speed package, along with being an intelligent and technically sound player. He'll have a learning period but I believe he can be a good player, so I would place him in my top 5 list, personally.

Also like Tony Jefferson and would place him in there as well. Amongst others but those are just the two I wanted to make mention of.

Patterson is as raw as they come. Needs to really improve is route running and hands.Taking a gamble drafting him. Which most ppl will be find with as the potential is there.

Patton is needs to beef up.

Allen and Rodgers are the best NFL WRs in this draft right now and its not even close if your going by college production and NFL size.

No, Hunter didnt have as impressive year as many hoped.

Rogers played for Tenn in 2011 I believe and tore up the SEC.
