2005 Expanded Wide Out Rankings.

Always a position stacked with talent, the 2005 receiver class looks like a good one. And though not as top-heavy as recent groups, plenty of talent will be available to NFL teams next April.


# Name School Yr Comments
1 Braylon Edwards Michigan 4Sr Big, physical pass catcher with impressive size/speed numbers.  Must improve the consistency of his hands as well as focus on the field.
2 Mike Williams USC 3So King sized receiver who may ultimately project to tight end at the next level.
3 Mark Clayton Oklahoma 5Sr Consistent wide out with reliable hands and the ability to break games wide open.
4 Craphonso Thorpe Florida State 4Sr Complete wide out with deceptive speed.  Lacks the great size and having difficulty returning from a broken leg suffered last year.
5 Terrence Murphy Texas A&M 4Sr Reliable in all aspects of the game. Times well in the 40 yet does not always translate that speed onto the field.
6 Jason Avant Michigan 3Jr Great combination of size and speed.  Slowly turning into a complete wide out and really improving his game.
7 Santonio Holmes Ohio State 3So Speedster continually breaking the big play.
8 Martin Nance Miami-Oh 4Jr Big, fast wide out with consistent hands and good size/speed numbers. 
9 Reggie Brown Georgia 5Sr Improving pass catcher that would make an excellent third receiver at the next level.
10 Fred Gibson Georgia 4Sr Explosive athlete who displays the ability to break games open or control them.  Has had a college career characterized by inconsistency.
11 Skyler Green LSU 3Jr Tremendous return specialist and game breaking receiver.  Lacks the great size and may only be a third wide out at the next level.
12 Roddy White UAB 5Sr Terrific athlete with excellent size/speed numbers.  Rounding out his game and a good long term prospect.
13 Chauncey Stovall Florida State 5Sr Making scouts take notice during a breakout senior season.  King sized receiver that runs faster than he times.
14 J.R. Russell Louisville 5Sr Outstanding possession wide out with excellent size.
15 Matt Trannon Michigan State 3Jr Starting to remind people of Plaxico Burress.
16 Josh Davis Marshall 5Sr Polished wide out who, though not spectacular, could easily fill the slot as a team's third receiver.
17 Chris Henry West Virginia 3Jr Talented wide out that shows the ability to takeover games.  Must improve his focus on the field and disciplined off it.
18 Jason Anderson Wake Forest 5Sr Nice sized pass catcher that can fill the role of possession wide out.
19 Steve Breaston Michigan 3So Speedster with great quickness and elusiveness.
20 Roscoe Parrish Miami-Fl 4Jr Game breaking receiver also an outstanding return specialist.
21 Vincent Jackson North Colorado 4Sr Potentially the best small school receiver in the draft.  Combines great size with reliable hands.
22 Airese Currie Clemson 5Sr Sprint champion rounding out his football game.
23 Roydell Williams Tulane 5Sr King-sized wide out that consistently comes away with the tough reception.
24 Mark Bradley Oklahoma 4Sr Turning in a stellar senior season.  Could move up boards with good post season workouts.
25 Taylor Stubblefield Purdue 5Sr Efficient receiver that also doubles as a return specialist.  Lacks top speed but does to many things well enough not to make a roster next year.
26 Courtney Roby Indiana 4Sr Solid possession wide out that runs well for the clock but does not play to that speed on the field.
