Preview: Top 2014 Underclassmen Wide Recievers

By Draft Lead Writer Philip Arnold- On Twitter @PhilipArnold20 give him a follow for continued PFC Draft Coverage.

We’ve finished previewing our top 2014 Seniors at each position. We now look into the Draft Eligible Underclassmen at the Wide Receiver position. There is a good amount of talent in store for the 2014 NFL Draft from the Wide Receiver position, including the Senior Wide Receivers. Looking at the Underclassmen, Marqise Lee had one of the best 2012 seasons among all Wide Receivers and is one of the top 2014 NFL Draft prospects. If you are looking for receiver with good size, don’t look much farther than this list. Guys such as Brandon Coleman, Mike Evans, Donte Moncrief and Kasen Williams are all big targets for their Quarterbacks. Don’t sleep on a guys like Allen Robinson and Josh Stewart who both had great 2012 seasons. Sammy Watkins battled injuries and a suspension in 2012, but could see a big year in 2013 with Tajh Boyd, one of the Top 2014 Senior Quarterbacks, throwing his way. Malcolm Mitchell, Tommy Shuler, and Brandin Cooks all lose key counterparts to the 2013 NFL Draft and will be interesting to see how they fare in the 2013 season. Lastly, keep an eye on Davante Adams of Fresno State. One of the top receivers in the nation during 2012 as a Redshirt Freshman will also have a Top 2014 Senior Quarterback throwing the ball his way and is a guy who can start to creep his way up draft boards.
