I am ranking receivers

I watched as many clips as I could of the top ten receivers in this draft and ranked them 1-10 accordingly. Here is how I rank them.

1.

I saw toughness in him in a youtube highlight video. To me he just appears to be the best, based on toughness, but is not the quickest but his other skills make up for it. And he has a name that belongs on the saints.

2.Watkins

We have no chance to get him. He doesnt have Beckham's toughness but has pure speed and also can run flankers and screens as well.

3.Benjamin

We have the chance to draft him, he is the biggest receiver in this draft based on size and can make some tough grabs and get speed when he needs to. But another thing going for him is returning.

4.Robinson

He would have been higher if not for this......

5.Cooks
Brandin Cooks Videos - ESPN

He's got speed, probably second speediest to Watkins but not tough and also is rather too small. But that is sometimes an advantage.

Next five later.

6.Evans

In terms of tough hands, he's the best. He bailed Manziel out so many times from what I saw. In terms of speed, he hasnt shown much and probably due to Manziel's scrambling.

7.Matthews

He made some nice first down catches. But I don't feel he's as spectacular as the ones above.

8.Richardson

9.Adams

10.Lee

To me nothing really stood out to me and he didnt play all the games. And then there is something like this game and this would make Brees look the way he looked the last couple seasons........

Marqise Lee vs Arizona State 2013 Video

That is why he is 10th to me. And one the gm should stay away from.

I'll do cornerbacks next.

I only did the top ten based on draft rankings.

I'm a gamecocks fan. I saw his clips and liked them better than the others. Evans I might have ranked too low I might put him ahead of Cooks. Also I might put Matthews ahead as well.

1.Beckham Jr
2.Watkins
3.Benjamin
4.Robinson
5.Evans
6.Matthews
7.Cooks
8.Richardson
9.Adams
10.Lee

As for Lee being so high, I just don't want him and I really hope we do not draft him. But his highlights didnt blow me away one bit.
