    WRs are FAST this year.

    Is it me, or has there never been this many guys to "unofficially" run sub 4.4? There have even been a few sub 4.3s... crazy.

    Tavon Austin - 4.25
    Marquise Goodwin 4.25
    Kenny Stills 4.28

    Ryan Swope - 4.34 (haha go white boy go!)

    Patterson probably just guaranteed himself a place in the 1st round with a 4.37 at 6'2" 216

    Overall, I'm pretty impressed. None of these guys stands out as the clear-cut #1... but there is some serious depth at the position.

    Agreed. Thats why I wouldnt even think to take Patterson at 9.

    We need to pick up one of these blazers preferably in the 3rd or 4th. Where will we find our Mike Wallace type this year?

    I'd still take Robert Woods over all of them. It's incredible how much money that injury and Marquise Lee have cost him.

    40 time is important but what's more important is how fast a WR can turn his hips. How fast he can stop and turn on a drag or curl route. "Game speed"

    He will be like the 8 or 9 WR off the board. May be a 3rd rounder. Good talent but I'll still pass.

    @NFLDraftInsider: Sleeper Texas AM WR Ryan Swope @Rswope25 6'1 206 ran a 4.34 (as fast as Tavon Austin) 72 recs, 913 yards, 8 TDs in 2012. Steal.


    I'm seeing him in Miami.

    A bunch of #2 types though. If Hill develops as I expect, he will be the Jets #1 and some of these other guys could be a nice compliment to him.

    Hopkins would be a great compliment to Hill. Hopkins is probably a better receive than Hill is right now, but they could make a nice group with Kerley in the slot as well.

    I would LOVE Hopkins if he's there in Round 2.

    I agree but I think Hopkins has some serious potential and he is going before I'd want to pick a WR.

    I'm looking for someone in the 3rd or 4th.

    Since when is a 6'2" WR who runs under 4.3 considered a slot receiver.

    Swopes is kisted as 6"0 under his draft profile on nfl.com he's be a decent pickup in the fourth though he'll probably go earlier
