Watkins is thought by some, including members of the Bills’ front office, to be on par as a prospect with the top two receivers in the 2011 draft, A.J. Green and Julio Jones. ... Evans is a former basketball player who should immediately contribute as a target in the red zone. He had 151 catches in two years as a starter. ... Beckham and Cooks have risen up the board in national mock drafts since the season ended. Beckham gets in and out of breaks well, and is a strong kick returner. Cooks might be the most explosive receiver in the draft. He won the Biletnikoff Award this year as college football’s best receiver. ... Lee’s draft stock might have been hurt by coming back for his junior year as he struggled with injuries and uncertainty at both quarterback and head coach. ... Benjamin caught the game-winning touchdown in the national championship game. He’s leaving school after his redshirt sophomore year.

Latimer has shot up draft boards since the season ended. He’s got good size and dependable hands. ... Matthews is the SEC’s all-time leader in catches and receiving yards, impressive given the defensive backs he faced. ... Bryant was overshadowed some by Watkins, but averaged 20 yards per catch. He ran a 4.42 40 at the combine. ... Richardson is undersized and dealt with knee injuries in college, but times well. ... Abbrederis is a former walk-on with the Badgers who turned himself into a No. 1 receiver. He has a history of concussions. ... Archer had the fastest 40 time at the combine (4.26 seconds). He’s a running back/receiver with good kick return ability.
