2014 NFL Draft: Wide Receiver Prospects You Should Know

1 of 4

 In this series of articles, I will be picking one position group each week from which I will be choosing four players to evaluate.  There will be three that you’ve probably heard of, and one that you probably haven’t. Please enjoy and I look forward to reading your comments.

Marquise Lee – 6’0 190lbs – USC

Marquise Lee’s draft stock has slowly but surely been dropping but by no fault of his own. It just so happens that Lee is on one of the most dysfunctional USC teams in recent memory, combined with other receivers around the country making names for themselves. That being said, he still has excellent potential and all the tools you like to see in a marquee wide out. He’s not the biggest receiver in the draft, in fact, he’s not even close but size doesn’t always make a good receiver. Look at Jon Baldwin. He runs very precise routes, has great hands, and break away speed. He was one of the best players in the country in 2012 with 117 receptions for 1,721 yards and 14 touchdowns. The former track star was widely considered to be the best wide out in the draft until this year began and could still potentially be the first receiver off the board, but I predict he will be the second or even the third receiver drafted in 2013.
