  • Wilson to battle Conley for starting job
    Albert Wilson is expected to battle third-round WR Chris Conley for a starting job opposite Jeremy Maclin.

    Advice: The 5-foot-9 Wilson can't match up with the physical freak Conley on paper. But there's also a question of fit, as Conley is a receiver that needs to be given a chance to win 1-on-1 battles downfield and Alex Smith is afraid to make those throws. Ultimately, we'd expect a situational time share, with Andy Reid favorite Jason Avant also getting the mix. Smith's limitations curb most of the fantasy appeal in Kansas City outside of Travis Kelce and Jeremy Maclin. Rotoworld.com

  • DeVante Parker to battle Wallace for start?
    DeVante Parker is expected to battle Greg Jennings for a starting spot.

    Advice: It's a competition Parker shouldn't have any problems winning even though Jennings was just given an $8 million contract. Jennings is a smallish 6'0/195 and slow-footed as he enters his age-32 season. Parker, the No. 14 pick, is 6'3/209 with long arms and strong hands. Expect the rookie to line up with slot man Jarvis Landry and burner Kenny Stills in the Dolphins' preferred three-wide sets. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin White expected to start right away
    Bears first-round WR Kevin White is considered the favorite to start Week 1.

    Advice: You don't use the No. 7 overall pick on a wideout to have him ride the pine. Especially when you have a clear-cut vacancy thanks to the Brandon Marshall trade. White immediately slots in as an every-down receiver ahead of both Marquess Wilson and Eddie Royal, bringing 1,000-yard upside in Year 1. Rotoworld.com

  • Falcons ready to focus on Julio's contract
    Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff suggested a contract extension for Julio Jones will be a priority.

    Advice: Now that the draft is over, the Falcons are expected to open negotiations with Jones. He's currently set to hit unrestricted free agency following this season. At just 26 years old with uniquely dominant ability, the Falcons are going to have to pony up Calvin Johnson kind of money. Julio is set to tear the roof off the league this year as Roddy White continues to fade into the distance. Rotoworld.com

  • Raiders sever ties with receiver James Jones
    Raiders released WR James Jones.

    Advice: Jones became redundant when the Raiders signed Michael Crabtree, a younger player with similar skills. Jones became expendable when the Raiders drafted Amari Cooper. 31 years old, Jones led Oakland in receptions (73) last season, but averaged a pathetic 9.12 yards per catch. He was a sub-pedestrian slot receiver and has never been an efficient separator on the perimeter. We wouldn't be completely shocked if Jones has played his last NFL down. Rotoworld.com

  • Arians: J.J. Nelson is like Emmanuel Sanders
    Cardinals coach Bruce Arians likened No. 159 overall pick J.J. Nelson to Emmanuel Sanders.

    Advice: Arians, of course, coached Sanders in Pittsburgh. Sanders was also smallish coming out of college -- 5'11/186 -- but not nearly as small as Nelson, whose Pro Day weigh-in was 5'10/156. The odds are stacked against Nelson making NFL noise as a receiver. We do expect him to be an impact return specialist. Rotoworld.com

  • Perriman: Drops a concentration issue
    First-round Ravens WR Breshad Perriman believes most of his college drops were the result of "lapses in concentration.

    Advice: As in, he believes it's something he can fix. Perriman muffed eight passes for UCF in 2014. "It's something I have a chip on my shoulder about," Perriman said. "At the end of the day, I know what I have to do and I know that I can catch." We're not overly concerned about Perriman's hands, though Kelvin Benjamin was a reminder last season that college-drop issues don't get better overnight. Rotoworld.com

  • Stefon Diggs set to contribute from slot
    ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling believes fifth-round WR Stefon Diggs will contribute more from the slot than outside.

    Advice: Diggs is certainly built like a slot receiver, checking in at 6-foot-0, 195 pounds. Diggs was expected to be a playmaker all over the field at Maryland, but was hampered by injuries. He has adequate speed at 4.46. Diggs could have a hard time earning targets as a rookie. Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson have the outside on lock, while Jarius Wright is capable in the slot. Cordarrelle Patterson is still hanging around as a supposed playmaker. Rotoworld.com

It's a vote of confidence for Nick Toon, Joe Morgan, Seantavius Jones and Brandon Coleman. If one can clearly rise to the top during the offseason program and training camp, he'll get on the deep-league radar. Rotoworld.com

    Director of College Scouting Kyle O’Brien said the Jaguars envision Rashad Greene as a slot receiver, though he could "compete for time on the outside."

    Advice: Greene ran an underwhelming 4.53 at the Combine and isn't athletic enough to be a home run threat. However, his sure hands and precise route-running make him a dangerous weapon as a slot receiver. Greene brings a winner's mentality from his time at Florida State. He could be asked to return kicks for Jacksonville. Rotoworld.com

  • Titans end WR Tre McBride's free-fall at 245
    Titans selected William & Mary WR Tre McBride with the No. 245 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: McBride was viewed by many as a third-round pick, but there were whispers he was a bit of a "diva" and may have an ankle issue. McBride (6'0/210) was a decorated wideout and return specialist in the Colonial Athletic Association, parlaying 196 career catches into 2,653 yards (13.5 YPR) and 19 TDs. He showed big-league athleticism at the Combine, running 4.41 with a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. McBride was an elite in-air ball tracker in college, but projects as more of an intermediate weapon in the pros; he doesn't play as fast as he timed. He does have sure hands and plays with toughness, so McBride's future may be at slot and/or Z receiver plus kickoff returns. Rotoworld.com

Snubbed for the Combine and overlooked by the draft community, Sasser showed passable athleticism at the Mizzou Pro Day, running 4.53 with a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Sasser doesn't project as an explosive perimeter receiver in the NFL, but could do some damage in a "big slot" role. Rotoworld.com

He ran 4.54 with a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump at the Combine. Never a go-to target at Michigan State and not a playmaker with the ball in his hands, Mumphery's NFL ceiling is a No. 4 or 5 receiver. Rotoworld.com

He was voted first-team All-Big Ten as a senior by the conference's coaches. Bell shredded the Combine, running 4.42 with a 41.5-inch vertical and 6.66 three cone. Matt Waldman's favorite player in the 2015 draft, Bell is a feisty competitor who plays the game with extreme aggressiveness and flashes special route-running ability. Similar to Kenny Stills, Bell could prove a steal despite generating relatively little fanfare inside the draft community. Rotoworld.com

He led Division I in kick return average (38.3 yards) and scored four TDs, one shy of the NCAA record. As Nelson runs 4.28 with lower-body explosion (10-foot-7 broad jump), he should translate smoothly on returns. He's unlikely to offer much to an NFL offense. Rotoworld.com

Revealed as a mediocre athlete at the Combine, Lippett ran 4.61 with a 36-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump. Short on separation skills, prone to drops, and not particularly physical for his size, Lippett was a good college receiver whose game is unlikely to translate smoothly.

He posted 2,227 yards and 14 TDs on 150 catches (14.8 YPR), missing time due to a suspension, lacerated kidney, and fractured leg. Diggs clocked 4.46 at the Combine, but disappointed in the vertical (35") and broad (9'7") jumps. Diggs will have to earn his NFL keep as a sub-package receiver and on special teams, where he returned two kickoffs for touchdowns in college. Rotoworld.com

    Jaguars selected Florida State WR Rashad Greene with the No. 139 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Greene joins Allen Robinson, Allen Hurns, Marqise Lee and potentially Justin Blackmon in a receiver corps the Jags have aggressively addressed the past few seasons. Greene (5'11/182) was a first-team All-ACC pick as both a junior and senior, setting FSU all-time records in receptions (270) and receiving yards (3,830). He scored 32 TDs in college, including two on punt returns as a sophomore. Limited athletically for his skinny build, Greene ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. One of the most refined route runners in the 2015 receiver class, Greene projects as a Doug Baldwin-ian slot receiver. He's at his best working the middle of the field.

    49ers selected Georgia Tech WR DeAndre Smelter with the No. 132 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: This is likely another redshirt player for the 49ers. Smelter (6'2/226) is a former baseball player who was drafted by the Twins (14th round) in 2010 before taking up football full time in 2013. In two seasons as a Yellow Jackets wideout, Smelter parlayed 56 catches into 1,060 yards (18.9 YPR) and 11 TDs. Smelter tore his ACL last December and was unable to work out before the draft. When healthy, Smelter showed big-time NFL tools as a physical post-catch tackle breaker and consistent winner of contested catches. Smelter may have to "redshirt" as a rookie, but offers long-range starting potential. Rotoworld.com

In just two seasons, Mayle piled up 148 catches for 2,022 yards (13.7 YPR) and 16 TDs. Mayle isn't a particularly good athlete despite his basketball background, running 4.67 at the Combine with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did most of his college receiving damage on bubble screens and dropped a whopping 13 passes as a senior. Mayle is a tight end/H-back/slot receiver hybrid. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: After Harry Douglas departed in free agency, the Falcons might have just drafted his replacement. Hardy (5'10/192) originally walked on at ECU, yet went on to break Ryan Broyles' record for most receptions in NCAA history (387), parlaying them into 4,541 yards (11.7 YPR) and 35 TDs. A pedestrian athlete, Hardy ran 4.56 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump. He does have big hands (10") and an excellent three-cone time (6.63). A quicker-than-fast chain mover, Hardy projects as a slot receiver only in the pros. He doesn't have the skill set to win on the perimeter. Rotoworld.com

After acquiring Jimmy Graham, Seattle already did not have many targets to go around. At 5-10/182, Lockett likely will not challenge Jermaine Kearse's role in the offense, and Doug Baldwin has proven effective if not spectacular as a slot-type receiver.

Montgomery added four rushing TDs, three on kickoff returns and two as a punt returner. Although not a natural catcher of the football, Montgomery has plus size and athleticism, running 4.55 in Indy with a 40 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Some draft analysts have suggested Montgomery take up running back full time. Others liken him to a cross between Cordarrelle Patterson and Mohamed Sanu.

Lockett blazed 4.40 at the Combine with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. Twitched up, versatile, and highly competitive, Lockett has drawn comparisons to T.Y.

    Advice: Dorsett (5'10/185) made 30 career starts for the 'Canes, parlaying 121 receptions into 2,132 yards (17.6 YPR) and 17 TDs. He blazed 4.33 in Indianapolis with a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. A blur on game tape, Dorsett is more lid popper than quick-twitch slot receiver, and has some DeSean Jacksonian traits. Dorsett's size deficiency may prevent him from becoming a big-time touchdown scorer in the pros, but he will be able to outrun coverage and has excellent hands, dropping just 3-of-73 targets as a senior. Quarterback play and offensive philosophy will be working in Dorsett's favor with the Colts, but opportunity may not. He appears to be buried behind T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, and Donte Moncrief. Dorsett is a classic "luxury pick" who may have to excel on kickoff returns to earn significant rookie-year snaps. Rotoworld.com

  • Ravens replace Torrey with Breshad Perriman
    Ravens selected UCF WR Breshad Perriman with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Perriman (6'2/212) spent three seasons at UCF, parlaying 115 catches into 2,243 yards (19.5 YPR) with 16 TDs. He is the son of ex-Lions WR Brett Perriman. Breshad's stock soared at his March Pro Day, blazing 4.26 with a 10-foot-7 broad jump and 36 1/2-inch vertical. Likened to Julio Jones in terms of "size and movement" by Greg Cosell, Perriman has the quickness of a small receiver in a big receiver's body and will be able to run by NFL defensive backs. The lone concern on Perriman is his hands after he dropped 8-of-54 catchable targets in 2014, although abysmal quarterback play frequently forced Perriman to make absurd adjustments to passes. He'll immediately replace Torrey Smith as Steve Smith's complement in new OC Marc Trestman's pass-happy offense, bringing serious statistical upside to the table. Rotoworld.com

He ran 4.45 with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump in Indianapolis. Long armed (33 1/4") with terrific hands, Parker dropped just three passes between his junior and senior seasons. Parker doesn't play as fast as he timed, however, and struggled with press coverage in college. He's drawn comparisons ranging from A.J. Green to Brandon LaFell. Ultimately, Parker is best suited for a No. 2 receiver role, though he could grow into a lower-end No. 1.

White (6'3/215) was a late-blooming JUCO transfer to WVU, where he struggled to learn Dana Holgorsen's offense as a junior before going berserk as a senior (109/1,447/10). He dropped just 5-of-163 targets in 2014. A powerful athletic specimen, White clocked 4.35 at the Combine with a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. White was an extremely physical player in 2014, dominating on 50/50 balls and refusing to be tackled post-catch, earning comparisons to Terrell Owens and Julio Jones. White needs to clean up his routes, but profiles as a prototype "X" receiver with playmaking ability at all three levels. Rotoworld.com
