2015 NFL Combine: Weigh-In Recap – Wide Receivers
By Charlie Campbell – @draftcampbell

  • The wide out that passes the eyeball test in impressive fashion is Missouri turned Oklahoma’s Dorial Green-Beckham. The 6-foot-5, 237 pounder is a massive wideout with some of the smaller hands (9 inches) among the receivers. Green-Beckham came in as big as advertised, his numbers were nearly identical to Kelvin Benjamin. If Green-Beckham runs well in the 40-yard dash, he could get a boost out of the Combine. However, the most important part of the Combine is how he interviews with teams as there are massive off-the-field questions for Green-Beckham.

  • In the running to be the top receiver in the draft class is Alabama’s Amari Cooper. He checked in as listed at 6-foot-1, 211 pounds. Cooper is similar in size to Sammy Watkins (6-0, 211) last year. Cooper also showcased some big hands (10 inches) and they were bigger than many of the huge wide outs like Green-Beckham and Michigan’s Devin Funchess. The polished Cooper should run well and impress in the field drills.

  • Funchess checked in at 6-foot-4, 232 pounds. He looks like a tweener wide receiver and tight end. He has nice sized hands (9 3/4) but he had some issues with drops last season. His 40 time is going to be critical to how teams view him and it could have a significant impact on how high he goes in the draft.

  • Along with Cooper, the other receiver that is considered to be a potential top 10 pick is West Virginia’s Kevin White. He was accurate to his listed height at 6-foot-3 and weighed in at 215 pounds with 9.25 inch hands. Those are strong numbers and give White a size advantage in the NFL. The biggest question is his deep speed, so a good 40 time is very important. A fast 40 could lock White into the top 10 and make him the first receiver drafted.



  • Louisville’s DeVante Parker (6-3, 209) showed good size at the Combine. He was as big as his listed numbers. The consensus opinion has Parker behind White and Cooper. In speaking with NFL teams, they have Parker third as well. Thus a good Combine will be important for him and his chances of going in the middle of the first round.

  • Central Florida’s Breshad Perriman (6-2, 212) has received a lot of hype lately as a potential first-round pick. Sources say they are grading Perriman on Day 2, but perhaps other teams will fall in love with him. If he runs fast in the 40, that could push him into the top 50 similar to former Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill.

  • Everybody knew that Florida State wide receiver Rashad Greene (5-11, 182) had a slight frame. Greene was listed at 6-foot, 180 pounds by the Seminoles. Sources say that they feel that Greene could have injury issues in the NFL and he had at least one concussion in college. After pulling out late from the Senior Bowl, the Combine will be important for Greene.



  • USC wide receiver Nelson Agholor (6-0, 198) was an inch shorter and about 10 pounds heavier than his listed weight. Agholor is big enough to line up outside and work out of the slot. It will be important for him to show solid hands in the field work.

  • Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong (6-2, 217) is put together well. He is a physical receiver and a red zone threat. Strong is an inch shorter than his listed height, but he’s big enough to offer a mismatch with his height and strength.

  • Notre Dame wide receiver Davaris Daniels was suspended for the 2014 season because of academic issues, so he has to interview well and look good in the field work. Daniels (6-1, 201) has decent size and his hands were in the lower portion (9 hands). Without a season of game tape from last fall, the Combine is important for Daniels.
