2012 NFL Draft: Mel Kiper's Top 5 WRs

Earlier we combed through Mel Kiper's big board for the top 5 inside linebackers, so now we're going to take a look at another potential need in the draft, wide receiver. If in fact DeSean Jackson comes back, the Eagles won't be in the market to take a WR early, but if not they certainly could be.

Justin Blackmon - OSU - *6-1, 215

Michael Floyd - Notre Dame - 6-3, 224

Kendall Wright - Baylor - 5-10, 190

Mohamed Sanu - Rutgers - *6-2, 215

Alshon Jeffery - South Carolina - *6-4, 229

Kiper says this is a deep class at WR.

The decision by Sanu to make the jump deepens this group, and makes it possible that all five guys will be gone before the end of Round 1. Blackmon is the safe leader of the pack right now, and should maintain that position if he runs well during the evaluation process. There isn't much not to like about his tape. A nice range here, with smaller targets like Wright, mid-sized guys, and a massive target in Jeffery.

This is also a very deep free agent class for WRs, so it's a good year to be in the market for a wideout. Probably not a great year to be one looking to get paid...
