Panthers NFL Draft Wide Receiver Prospects

Being a top 5-6 WR in a poor offensive draft, if a team thinks he can be an OBJ-type player he could go in the first

Exactly.  The imbalance between offensive and defensive talent at the top of the draft makes it very interesting and hard to predict.  Will teams go for value or need?  How will a run on a given position affect things...?   It makes predicting a player like Shepard or Hunter Henry tricky.   Based on their consensus ranking & grades, it's not unreasonable to think they could fall to us in round 2.  But based on the lack of much other top talent at TE or WR, I could see them going earlier than many of the mocks predict.

Not sure how well this will work to paste here - table may be too wide.  But here's a closer look at the details of 21 mock drafts I've analyzed re: the consensus top 10 WRs.


Looking at the far right, you can see I've just started to look at / include mocks by major analysts at SI and NFL.com.  They're a lot more bullish on players such as Will Fuller & Sterling Shepard than the boards at fanspeak.  So I want to dig a bit more and see what some of the other media analysts are saying about WRs - even if they're only doing mocks for the 1st round or early rounds.

Sterling Shepard is this year's Philip Dorsett. Will most certainly get over-drafted.

Shepard has far more college production.  He had almost 1300 receiving yards last season.  Dorsett never had a 900 yard season at Miami.

Another guy I like is Daniel Braverman, who's getting some late buzz as a Beasley/Edelman type (yeah, he's white). Could be a nice day 3 find. 

I have been watching Braverman and it's a lot to like about his game. If he gets with the patriots, he will become a pro bowler. The ideal slot guy with 4.4 speed and great cod. Had a 6.8 3 cone I believe.

Haven't gotten a chance to check out this Listenbee guy.  A lot of good discussion has been had about Shepard though...he's been one to keep an eye on for a while now.  Has been consistently ranked in top-45 on big boards for what it's worth.
