These is my 2012 NFL Combine Stock Report for the wide receivers. Follow me @walterfootball for updates.


2012 NFL Combine: Stock Report - Wide Receivers

Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
Justin Blackmon measured in shorter than expected at the Combine (6-1, 207). There is a stat going around that he would be the shortest receiver chosen in the top 10 since Ted Ginn, but that's largely irrelevant because Blackmon plays bigger than his size. I'm giving Blackmon a down arrow, but it won't be enough to knock him out of the top six.

Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas
Greg Childs struggled in 2011 coming off a torn patellar tendon, but that shouldn't have affected his ability to catch the football. Childs had numerous drops during the drills. He's a late-round prospect at best.

Juron Criner, WR, Arizona
Forty times aren't that big of a deal, but Juron Criner's 4.68 was a bit alarming. Teams will question his ability to separate. On the bright side, he looked good in the drills, while his hands measured in at 10 1/2 inches. No stock movement.



B.J. Cunningham, WR, Michigan State
B.J. Cunningham has the potential to lead the league in drops per target. His hands are microscopic, measuring in at 8 1/8 inches.

Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
Michael Floyd ran an unofficial 4.42 40, which is really impressive considering his size (6-3, 220). Also, he dropped only one pass (as far as I could tell) in the drills. He looked good and may have become the favorite to be the second receiver taken off the board.

Chris Givens, WR, Wake Forest
Chris Givens ran a solid 4.41 40, but had weak jump numbers (9-10 broad, 33.5 vertical). More importantly, he's another receiver with tiny hands (8 1/4). He'll most likely be guilty of a ton of drops throughout his professional career.

Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Stephen Hill really made a name for himself at the Combine. Despite weighing in at a solid 6-4, 215, the bastard of Lannisport mustered an unofficial 4.30 40 time, an outrageous 11-1 broad jump and 39.5-inch vertical. He also looked terrific in the drills. Hill is a bit raw coming out of Georgia Tech's goofy offense, but he has enormous potential. Besides, if Demaryius Thomas can turn into a stud out of the same scheme, why can't the even-more-athletic Hill?



Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina
There seemed to be a smear campaign going on regarding Alshon Jeffery, as a small Web site reported that he would weigh in at 240 pounds at the Combine. Jeffery proved everyone wrong, measuring at 6-3, 216. All indications were that he solidified his first-round status - until he refused to work out for some strange reason and reportedly turned teams off during the interviews.

Dwight Jones, WR, North Carolina
Mike Mayock ripped into Dwight Jones for slacking off during one of the drills. A pass wasn't in the right place, so Jones quit on the route and appeared to be frustrated. Jones was also accused of looking sluggish during the Senior Bowl. Making matters worse, he mustered a 1.62 10-yard split in the 40, showing very little burst.

Jones may not be on some teams' draft boards anymore, and there now isn't much of a chance that he'll be selected in the first four rounds.

Marvin Jones, WR, California
Marvin Jones caught pretty much everything at the Combine, which wasn't a surprise because of his massive hands (10 1/4). Jones also ran a solid 4.46 40.



Mohamed Sanu, WR, Rutgers
Like Juron Criner, Mohamed Sanu posted a disappointing 40 time (4.67). He wasn't supposed to run well, so this doesn't hurt him that much. He's a solid possession receiver who should still be chosen in the second round. It's also worth noting that Sanu's hand measurement (10 1/8) and broad jump (10-6) helped him this weekend.

Tommy Streeter, WR, Miami
Tommy Streeter posted a terrific 4.40 40 at 6-5, 219. His broad jump (10-5) was also nice. Before you get too excited, however, these numbers don't really translate to the field in his case. Streeter is really raw, but the potential is there for someone to take him on Day 2.

Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Kendall Wright's atrocious 40 time of 4.61 is pretty inexplicable. It looked like he stumbled out of his break on one attempt, but he did have two tries like everyone else. I won't drop him in my 2012 NFL Mock Draft, however. Remember, Joe Haden ran an awful 40 a couple of years ago, and he was still selected No. 7 overall. You could argue that speed is a bigger part of Wright's game, and that would be accurate. To that, CBS' Pete Prisco's tweet is something to keep in mind: "Kendall Wright ran slower than Michael Floyd. I ask this: Who plays faster? It isn't Floyd."

Wright's 40 time is bogus, and it's not indicative of his game. Any smart team will ignore it.

I thought Junior Hemingway from Michigan looked pretty good, but I didn't see anything mentioned about him.

DeVier Posey -Ohio State

I think Mr Posey if played for the other OSU ( Oklahoma State ) he would also be in the top 5 picked. I dont see anyone in this draft including Blackmon that has the hands and route running ability. I think he is being plagued by a school that cant pass the ball and his senior year.

Teams are going to look at Criner and pass. Injury history can't be ignored. He's made of glass.

Marvin Jones is the sleeper. T.J. Graham tore it up & he's going to be a steal if he can beat the jam. Keyshawn Martin was the best MSU wideout this year - and he did very well.

Kendall did play at Baylor and played a mediocre schedule but he tore up everyone. He'll run faster at his pro day. Smart teams will ignore the 4.61. When you put on the tape thats not 4.61 speed. Just ask the defenders he torched this year.

There isn't a smear campaign surrounding Jeffery - he is just a headcase that doesn't work hard (except when his paycheck of a lifetime is on the line).

Rumors that he was in an extreme weight loss program to drop almost 40 pounds since bowl season don't help.

What about Marvin McNutt. Thought he ran better than expected. Measurables were good and caught the ball well, expecially in the guantlet.

Kendall Wright played at Baylor going against second tier corners all year...How he played on tape is irrelevant...Wallace at pittsburgh ran like a 4.38...At the very least he can no longer be compared to Wallace

Figured it out...Walter, I think you switched the 40 times of Jarius Wright and Kendall Wright. Kendall Wright ran a 4.42, Jarius Wright ran a 4.61. I think.

4.61 for wright can't be accurate, can it?

Really disappointed in Kendall Wright. I was hoping for at worst a 4.45. Juron Criner ran slower than I'd hoped for, but his size, arms and vert make me think he's still loaded with potential. Michael Floyd jumped ahead of Wright with that run, but that isn't nearly as impressive as Stephen Hill. A 1.20 split? That's either insanely amazing, or insanely inaccurate. That BLOWS AWAY Chris Johnson.

Devier Posey looks alright after a disappointing season. I was hoping for better times from WMU's Jordan Wright and Oregon State's James Rodgers (maybe those tiny legs). Chris Owusu really impressed me with a 4.36. I really wanted to see Jeffery, Hilton, and Broyles run.
