    Welcome to RichTree's Pre-Combine Wide Reciever World !!!!!!!!!!

    I have examined every single WR that had a invite to the NFL combine. Firstly, with more underclassmen returning to school than expected, it drastically changed the landscape of the 2011 WR draft class. A.J. Green has been the one elite constant with a slew of WR's behind him. This year seems to have many athletes that are KR/PR and hybrid players at the WR position. After the top six or so WR's there is a group of guys that could have many sleepers pop out from deep in the draft. Tomorrow starts in all.

    Here is the Pre-Combine look:

    (NFL comparision is for style only, not projection of talent).
    (40 times listed are what I THINK THEY WILL RUN).





    A couple of things to watch:


    Tier 1

    AJ Green: Is a lock to be first WR taken barring injury/off the field issues. Nuff Said.
    Julio Jones: With a good combine can lock in at #2 WR in the draft.
    Torrey Smith: If he meausres over 6ft 1in and runs below 4.49 he should be the 3rd WR taken in first round.


    These would be the tier 2 guys: (2-3 round guys)



    Terrence Toliver: If he shows good strength numbers could fly up the board.
    Leonard Hankerson: Having great post-season needs a good 40 time.
    Greg Little: Combine could earn him millions, needs to show off athleticism from last yr.
    Jon Baldwin: Most to lose at combine. Can he play at NFL speed or drop to Round 3?
    Titus Young: Needs to impress with 40 time, and then show more than runner.
    Randall Cobb: Will be Wilcat/athlete for any team must be open to this idea.
    Jock Sanders: Will fly up the board with a good combine. My Sleeper of combine.


    Tier 3


    Goes from V.Brown to D.Brown. WIll update write up later tonight.


    Tier 4


    Is from G.Salas to L.Jean.

    Tier 5


    Murdock to Whalen. I don't think any of these guy have an NFL future, but maybe someone could shock me or be a special teams player for years in the league.




    Best Hands
    Austin Pettis


    Fastest 40 time
    Ricardo Lockette should be 4.35 or 4.36


    Most Bench Reps
    Should be Jon Baldwin but will probably end up being Randall Cobb at 22 or so.


    More too come before tomorrow

    I believe DeAndre Brown went to Southern Miss., not Mizzou.

    Very cool, thanks for sharing! I am a bit disappointed in the lack of love shown toward Dane Sanzenbacher though.

    Yeah, he is shorter than I thought and doesn't have the speed to be a KR in the NFL. .so I don't think he fits...

    It is clear cut that the TOP 4 WR's are Green, Jones, Hankerson, and T.Smith....these are your legit 1st Rounders.

    Hankerson looking like a stud. Greg Little's 27 reps on the bench make his a Round 2 talent, but his interviews pull him down. He is a legit NFL talent, maybe first round "talent" that will slip....He may be worth a 3rd Round flier if he is still there to give us power and speed in the "Harvin hybrid" role

    My man T. Toliver is one of 5 WR's with over 10in Hands. He was a little slower then you want in the 40 yd., but I still think he projects as a good NFL player. He will need one season of training dropping him into the 3rd Round late...we don't have time to groom a WR, but if he slips to 4rd or later, he may be a nice guy to groom.
