  1. Christian Kirk, WR, Texas A&M
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Projected Round (2019): 1.

    8/9/17: Kirk played well in 2016 despite inconsistent quarterback play from the Aggies. He had 83 receptions for 928 yards with nine touchdowns while splitting targets with wideouts like Josh Reynolds and Ricky Seals-Jones.

    Kirk had an outstanding freshman debut for Texas A&M and earned playing time over more veteran receivers who had previously produced for the Aggies. In 2015, Kirk caught 80 passes for 1,009 yards with seven touchdowns. He averaged only 19.3 yards per kick return, but averaged 24.4 yards per punt returns with two touchdowns.

    Kirk is a fast, explosive play-maker. Some scouting sources have said there nickname for Kirk is "Baby Beckham" in reference to Odell Beckham Jr.






  2. Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
    Projected Round (2019): 1.

    8/9/17: In 2016, Ridley made 72 catches for 769 yards with seven touchdowns. He had a tremendous debut for Alabama and became the Crimson Tide's No. 1 receiver as a freshman. As a replacement for Amari Cooper, Ridley was very effective with 89 receptions for 1,045 yards with seven touchdowns. He finished the 2015 season with impressive performances against Florida and Michigan State to help push Alabama to the National Championship. Ridley has size, speed and a ton of upside for the NFL.


  3. Equanimeous St. Brown, WR, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2019): 1.

    8/9/17: Sources who have done advance work on the 2018 class are really impressed and intrigued with St. Brown. They say he is a super-polished route runner with tremendous speed, athletic ability, body control, and hands. They said they think St. Brown could be more gifted and talented than the three wideouts who went in the top 10 of the 2017 NFL Draft, but St. Brown gets fewer opportunities to show his skill. In 2016, he had 58 receptions for 961 yards with nine touchdowns.


  4. Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    8/9/17: In 2016, Sutton totaled 76 receptions for 1,246 yards - 16.5 yard average per catch - with 10 touchdowns. He played well for SMU, showing his size, strength and quickness. He could have been a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but the redshirt sophomore decided to return for his junior year. Sutton has size to him and has consistently displayed big-play ability.

    In the preseason of 2016, sources say they have been really impressed with Sutton. One scouting director told WalterFootball.com that in studying up on players before hitting the road for college training camps, Sutton's tape really stood out. As a redshirt freshman, Sutton totaled 862 yards - 17.6 yard average per catch - and nine touchdowns on 49 receptions. In the 2015 season opener, SMU was blown out by Baylor, but Sutton had 82 yards and two touchdowns on only three receptions.


  5. Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    8/9/17: In 2016, Callaway totaled 54 receptions for 721 yards with three touchdowns. He displayed his deep speed and play-making ability during the season despite inconsistent quarterback play. Callaway was one of the most dangerous play-makers in the SEC as a freshman. Despite Florida's terrible quarterback play in the second half of the 2015 season, he totaled 678 yards on 35 receptions with four touchdowns on the year. He also returned two punts for touchdowns.

    Callaway plays bigger than his size and is a threat to rip off a long gain anytime he touches the ball. Team sources have been really impressed with him on the field, but have major off-the-field concerns. The off-the-field issues have the potential to be a huge weight on Callaway's draft stock.
