The big-name wide receivers such as Alabama's Amari Cooper and West Virginia's Kevin White are long since off the big board of the 2015 NFL Draft, but there's still plenty of talented wideouts for teams to consider heading into day two on Friday. Here's our list of The 4 Best Wide Receivers Left In The 2015 NFL Draft.
1. Jaelen Strong - Arizona State
What strong lacks in pure afterburner speed he makes up for with his ability to box out smaller defensive backs and bully his way to catch after catch. While he doesn't project to be a superstar, he has a great career in the range of dependable possession receiver and gritty veteran #1 wideout ahead of him.
2. Dorial Green-Beckham - Missouri/Oklahoma
Here's your boom/bust pick of Friday's day two. There is no doubting Green-Beckham's explosiveness nor how unique his mixture of size, speed, and fantastic hands is even at the NFL level. His off-the-field problems are well documented, however, and led to his controversial exit from Missouri. He's got so much potential but any team that picks him must have done some major vetting beforehand.
3. Devin Smith - Ohio State
If you're looking for a pure deep threat with home-run potential every time he streaks down field, Smith is your guy. If you blink you'll miss Smith streaking off the snap, and his ability to absolutely rip the top off any secondary is a key attribute. However, his hands need work and he may need a hands-on, no-nonsense wide receivers coach/offensive coordinator to rid him of his glaring concentration lapses.
4. Sammie Coates - Auburn
Here's another major enigma on this board. Coates is a gamble solely based on noticeable lapses of effort and concentrartion, but there's too much size, speed, and natural route-running instincts here to write him off as a mid-to-late round flyer. Coates is a player similar to Devin Smith in that he will need some solid coaching up at the professional level.
