With all the talk about quarterbacks and cornerbacks going early and often in the 2014 NFL draft, the position that could produce the most first-round picks in 2014 could be receiver.
Current buzz has as many as seven receivers going in the first round, with up to five in the top 25.
If, as some are now suggesting, both Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans are selected by the time the first five picks are made, teams that need receivers could decide to pounce.
From Odell Beckham to Marqise Lee to Brandin Cooks to Kelvin Benjamin to maybe more, receivers should be hearing their names a lot on Thursday night.
Whether one or more or all make an instant impact remains to be seen. Receivers have a high bust rate at the NFL level, in part because they’re facing press coverage for the first time with a grown man pushing and shoving and tugging and generally harassing the kids who are trying to run their routes.
