NFL teams hoping to select a wide receiver in the first two rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft can add three quality prospects to their big board Thursday.
According to Ralph D. Russo of The Associated Press, Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, Penn State’s Allen Robinson and Oregon State’s Brandin Cooks will join a deep wide receiver class and enter this year’s draft.
Evans was Johnny Manziel‘s top target this season with a team-leading 69 receptions for 1,394 yards and 12 touchdowns. The 6-5, 255-pound sophomore receiver dominated a great Alabama defense in Week 3 with seven catches for 279 yards and one touchdown.
Cooks won the 2013 Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver with 128 receptions for 1,730 yards and 16 touchdowns. The junior wideout scored at least one touchdown in 10 of Oregon State’s 13 games. Robinson thrived in Bill O’Brien’s offense with 97 catches for 1,432 yards and six touchdowns at Penn State.
The only player in this group to receive a top-32 grade in ESPN’s latest draft prospect rankings was Evans with a score of 90 (24th overall).
The 2014 NFL Draft begins May 8.
