  Cardinals | Jaron Brown continuing to recover    Fri Apr 17, 10:17 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Jaron Brown (shoulder) has been rehabbing his injured shoulder and said he hopes to be back up to speed for OTAs.

  49ers | Dorial Green-Beckham meets with SF    Fri Apr 17, 04:29 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham recently met with the San Francisco 49ers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The 49ers need help at wide receiver, and Green-Beckham is a top-10 talent who could be available later in the draft because of off-field concerns. Green-Beckham is big, fast and physical at the point of the catch. Think of him in the same way you do Josh Gordon (Browns) both on and off the field.

  Bengals | CIN meets with Dorial Green-Beckham    Fri Apr 17, 04:22 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham met with the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, April 16, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bengals don't care about character concerns. Green-Beckham has top-10 talent but off-field problems that caused him to bounce around in college will keep his draft stock down. We'll see if he can be a first-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. Green-Beckham could be one of the best receivers in the game if he just stays out of trouble. In a lot of ways, he's similar to Josh Gordon (Browns).

  Dolphins | Miami to meet with Devin Smith    Fri Apr 17, 03:10 PM

Ohio State WR Devin X. Smith is scheduled to meet with the Miami Dolphins before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Smith's game is about speed, speed and more speed. His skill set is reminiscent of DeSean Jackson (Washington) because Smith can take the top off the defense with ease. He tracks the ball well over his shoulder and is a big-play threat.

  Steelers | Jaelen Strong visiting PIT    Fri Apr 17, 03:00 PM

Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong is meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, April 17.

Footballguys view: Strong reminds us of Alshon Jeffery (Bears) or Anquan Boldin (49ers) because of his size and physical style of play. He can rip away contested catches from defenders, and this makes him a fine target when his team is near pay dirt. Look for Strong to be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Saints | Greg Jennings leaves NO    Fri Apr 17, 12:41 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) left his visit with the New Orleans Saints without a contract. Jennings is also considering the Carolina Panthers, Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Footballguys view: We think the Miami Dolphins might show some interest in Jennings as well. He's a seasoned veteran who is getting more than a few teams interested. Jennings will take his time and find the right deal (and the right fit) in the near future.

  Broncos | Tre McBride, Keith Mumphery visit    Thu Apr 16, 02:27 PM

William & Mary WR Tre McBride and Michigan State WR Keith Mumphery have met with the Denver Broncos this offseason.

Footballguys view: The Broncos are just looking at potential depth at the wide receiver position here. McBride is looked at as a third rounder while Mumphery will likely be a late-round pick or priority free agent. Seems like Denver is looking at all levels for more receivers. Our very own Cecil Lammey was impressed by Mumphery at the East-West Shrine Game earlier this year. Mumphery showed good quickness in and out of his breaks, and he could work well as a return man too.

  Rams | Dorial Green-Beckham visits Rams    Thu Apr 16, 02:08 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham visited with the St. Louis Rams in the first week of April.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham has a ton of talent but a penchant for trouble off the field. The Rams need receiver help, but they might want to pass on a guy who was kicked off a team and has had multiple incidents involving drugs. He has top-10 talent, but Green-Beckham may fall to the second round because of character concerns.

  Rams | St. Louis met with DeVante Parker    Thu Apr 16, 02:07 PM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker met with the St. Louis Rams Wednesday, April 15. He is considered the third-best wide receiver in this year's draft behind Alabama WR Amari Cooper and West Virginia WR Kevin White. The Rams also had a pre-draft visit with Cooper in the first week of April, and White will visit with the Rams next week.

Footballguys view: Now that the Rams have Nick Foles, they need to give him weapons. There is a good chance both Kevin White and Amari Cooper could be off the board by the time they pick at 10th overall. If that's the case, Parker is a good third option. Parker has good height, speed and great ball skills on deep targets. He'd be a potent weapon for Foles.

  Browns | Cleveland meets with Amari Cooper    Thu Apr 16, 12:55 PM

Alabama WR Amari Cooper has met with the Cleveland Browns this offseason. The Browns likely would have to trade up in first round of the 2015 NFL Draft if they want to select him.

Footballguys view: Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on the Browns. Cleveland ignored the wide receiver position after learning Josh Gordon would be suspended last draft, but not now. Of course, if they want Cooper, they'll have to move up from 12. It won't be cheap but given how poor their wide receiver group is, it could be worth it.

  Titans | Phillip Dorsett visiting Tennessee    Thu Apr 16, 10:28 AM

Miami (Fla.) WR Phillip Dorsett is visiting the Tennessee Titans Thursday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Phillip Dorsett has averaged more than 25 yards per catch since 2012 and can burn teams inside and out. Tennessee needs to keep building the offense for Zach Mettenberger, Philip Rivers or whomever ends up under center.

  Packers | Will look at Jordan Leslie    Thu Apr 16, 02:57 AM

BYU WR Jordan Leslie will visit the Green Bay Packers prior to the NFL Draft, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Packers are always looking for the next wide receiver to add to a talented group. It gives them leverage against free agents who might want more money than they would like to pay. Leslie played for UTEP for three years before moving to BYU for his last season.

  Giants | G-Men uncertain about Victor Cruz     Wed Apr 15, 11:39 PM

The New York Giants do not know whether and to what extent WR Victor Cruz (knee) will recover from the severe knee injury he suffered last season. He might not be ready for the start of training camp, and if he can go Cruz is expected to be on a somewhat limited program.

Footballguys view: Nobody knows much of anything right now in regards to Cruz's potential availability. Cruz should start training camp on the PUP list--which he can be activated from at any time. If he's not ready for Week 1 of the regular season, then the PUP list is still an option. If placed on the PUP list to begin the regular season, Cruz would be forced to miss the first six weeks of the year. After that time, the Giants would then have three weeks to decide whether or not to activate him or put him on season-ending Injured Reserve.

  Giants | Rueben Randle penciled in to start    Wed Apr 15, 11:39 PM

New York Giants WR Rueben Randle is projected to start alongside WR Odell Beckham Jr., as the team is uncertain how far WR Victor Cruz (knee) will make it back from his torn patellar injury.

Footballguys view: Randle had a breakout year in his third season. He posted career-best numbers in catches (71) and receiving yards (938). Randle could be in line for a large role if Cruz is unable to come back from the severe knee injury he suffered in 2014. The hope is that Cruz will be ready for the regular season opener, but he could be put on the PUP list to begin the year.

  Giants | Preston Parker to see more snaps?    Wed Apr 15, 11:34 PM

New York Giants WR Preston Parker has worked in the slot, and he could see time in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Parker could be a decent slot man if he can win the job over Dwayne Harris or Kevin Ogletree. The Giants may have to scramble a bit at the wide receiver position if Cruz isn't ready to begin the regular season. Perhaps they'll select a wide receiver at some point in the draft this year.

  Giants | Kevin Ogletree could have big role    Wed Apr 15, 11:33 PM

New York Giants WR Kevin Ogletree has experience working in the slot, and he might be used in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is not ready for the beginning of the regular season. WRs Dwayne Harris and Preston Parker could also be in the mix.

Footballguys view: Ogletree has decent size but we question his run-after-the-catch ability and willingness to get open over the middle of the field. The Giants are hoping that Cruz can be back at the start of the season, but he could be put on the PUP list to begin the year.

Link to story
Kevin Ogletree player page


  Giants | Dwayne Harris option in the slot    Wed Apr 15, 11:32 PM

New York Giants WR Dwayne Harris has experience playing the slot, and he could be called upon in three-receiver sets if WR Victor Cruz (knee) is unable to make it for the start of the regular season.

Footballguys view: Harris is a quick player who can make defenders miss after the catch. He has good lower-body strength to run through arm tackles as well. Kevin Ogletree and Preston Parker are also in the hunt.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to be full go    Wed Apr 15, 11:32 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) is able to work out in some capacity during the team's offseason program, although head coach Rex Ryan indicated Wednesday, April 15, that he doesn't expect Watkins to do many football-related activities training camp. "My understanding is Sammy is doing really well," Ryan said. "We're not going to see him out there until training camp. But he should be full go when we get to training camp."

Footballguys view: The Bills have no reason to rush Watkins back onto the practice field at this time. We believe they'll ease him in at training camp, and he should be able to ramp up his participation quickly as we get closer to the start of the regular season.

  NFL | Jaelen Strong doesn't need surgery    Wed Apr 15, 05:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong (wrist) said he will not need surgery on his broken wrist.

Footballguys view: Strong is one of our favorite receivers in this draft class. He reminds us of a cross between Anquan Boldin and Alshon Jeffery. We'll see if this wrist problem will hurt his draft stock drastically. Even with this injury, we think Strong is going to be a late first- or early second-round pick.

  Dolphins | Reggie Wayne not a target for MIA    Wed Apr 15, 12:55 PM

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) has not received interest from the Miami Dolphins at this point.

Footballguys view: We would be shocked if Wayne latched on with a team in the near future. He's not the same player he used to be, and this is an incredibly deep group of wide receivers coming into the league via the draft this year. Wayne's playing days might be done.

  49ers | Devin Funchess to visit    Wed Apr 15, 07:18 AM

Michigan WR Devin Funchess will visit the San Francisco 49ers in the coming days.

Footballguys view: Funchess could be a wide receiver or tight end in the pros. He's a big target who can catch passes at the highest point, and Funchess can use his frame to box out smaller defenders. Catching the ball is sometimes a problem as Funchess has had 20 drops over the last three seasons. With his raw skill set, we could see Funchess come off the board in the third round of the draft.

  Seahawks | Ricardo Lockette signs tender    Tue Apr 14, 05:19 PM

Seattle Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette signed his exclusive-rights tender Tuesday, April 14.

Footballguys view: Lockette is merely a reserve receiver with little fantasy upside. He'll contribute as a return man as well, but he's only worth rostering in ultra-deep dynasty leagues.

Ricardo Lockette player page


  Saint | Greg Jennings will visit Saints    Tue Apr 14, 04:00 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) will visit the New Orleans Saints, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Jennings is making a tour around the league as he decides where he's going to play in 2015. The Dolphins and Jaguars have also shown interest in the veteran receiver.

  Bills | Brad Smith visiting Tuesday    Tue Apr 14, 12:47 PM

Free-agent WR Brad Smith (Eagles) is visiting with the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, April 14.

Footballguys view: Smith has played with the Bills before in his pro career, and he has experience working under new Bills head coach Rex Ryan. If added, Smith would only contribute as a reserve receiver and return man on special teams.

  Steelers | Three prospects visit    Tue Apr 14, 02:57 AM

Texas A&M TE Cameron Clear, West Virginia G Quinton Spain, and Auburn WR Sammie Coates all visited the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Coates is the player we like best here. He's a fast and physical player with dynamic playmaking ability after the catch. However, catching the ball has been a problem for Coates. He had a drop rate of 19.1 percent in college, and he was rarely on the same page as his quarterback. That obviously will have to be improved if Coates wants a long career in the NFL.

  Lions | Tyrell Williams visits    Tue Apr 14, 02:34 AM

Western Oregon WR Tyrell Williams took a pre-draft visit to the Detroit Lions on Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: This is a strong draft class of wide receivers, and Williams is one of the small-school sleeper prospects to keep an eye on. At 6'3" 205 pounds, he can fly down the field and set up his route well with good quickness after his break. Williams can snatch the ball out of the air with his strong hands, and he is tough to bring down after the catch. Look for him to be a late-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Colts | T.Y. Hilton likely looking for deal    Tue Apr 14, 01:33 AM

Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton recently fired his agent and re-hired Drew Rosenhaus, a move believed to precede a contract negotiation.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation as it develops. Hilton has outperformed his third-round rookie deal, and likely wants a new--and much larger--contract. The two sides have had negotiations, but it is unclear if the talks have moved forward.

  Raiders | Michael Crabtree financials    Tue Apr 14, 01:08 AM

Updating a previous report, the Oakland Raiders are giving free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) a one-year, $3 million deal with another $2 million in incentives, a source said Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: For decades, the Raiders have been the "second chance" team. They've taken on once highly touted players who have lost their way to see if they can rejuvenate their careers. Sometimes it works, but we'd say most of the time it doesn't. Crabtree's numbers fell off with the 49ers. Part of that was bad quarterback play, but part of it was him. We'll see if a change of scenery helps energize the veteran receiver.

  Raiders | OAK expected to add Michael Crabtree    Mon Apr 13, 08:03 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is expected to sign with the Oakland Raiders as early as Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: This sounds like a Raiders move. They need all the help they can get at the wide receiver position, so Crabtree is going to get a shot. A change of scenery (and a better passing quarterback) will be good for the veteran, but we're not expecting much from him in 2015.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders likes Cody Latimer    Mon Apr 13, 07:53 PM

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer, who is expected to line up across from WR Demaryius Thomas in 2015, has been praised by WR Emmanuel Sanders, who figures to move inside to the slot position in three-wide receiver sets. 'Cody is a special player. He has strong hands and is a physical tool. I think this is going to be the year that he jumps onto the scene. I think he's going to have a big year and I'm happy he's on my team and in our receiver group,' Sanders said.

Footballguys view: We like Cody Latimer too, but realize there are going to be limitations for the Broncos passing game this year under new head coach Gary Kubiak. The team is going to use three wide receiver sparingly, and that's Latimer's best bet to get on the field. He may not break out as much as some think this year due to the balanced offense Denver will have. We think 25-30 catches with perhaps 6-7 touchdowns sounds about right.

  Bears | Breshad Perriman visits Chicago    Mon Apr 13, 05:33 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman visited the Chicago Bears Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: Perriman is a fast wide receiver who can get on top of the defense in a hurry. He has a large catch radius, and he can make difficult catches seem routine. Drops and inconsistent routes are a concern for some, but his physical attributes are too much to pass up.

  Titans | Hakeem Nicks visiting Titans    Mon Apr 13, 04:57 PM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts) is visiting the Tennessee Titans Monday, April 13.

Footballguys view: Nicks insists that he can still play, but the film shows otherwise. He's lost more than a step, and Nicks is no longer the threat after the catch he used to be.

  Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play some in slot    Mon Apr 13, 02:26 PM

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he will play in the slot when the Broncos play with a three wide receiver set and that he's comfortable in that position.

Footballguys view: The Broncos may not use a ton of three wide receiver sets under Gary Kubiak, but when they do Sanders will be moved inside. Second-year pro Cody Latimer would then be on the outside. Latimer has incredible upside, but the limitations of this balanced offense may keep him from breaking out as much as some think.

  Ravens | BAL interested in Michael Crabtree     Mon Apr 13, 01:23 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is receiving interest from the Baltimore Ravens, according to a source. The Ravens are one of three teams showing the most interest in Crabtree.

Footballguys view: Crabtree has not been getting much interest on the open market. The Ravens could be in the mix for his services as they look for wide receiver talent after losing Torrey Smith in free agency to the 49ers.

  Dolphins | Michael Crabtree an option for MIA    Mon Apr 13, 01:20 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is receiving interest from the Miami Dolphins, according to a source. The Dolphins are one of three teams showing the most interest in Crabtree.

Footballguys view: Crabtree has been getting limited interest on the open market. Miami moved Mike Wallace earlier this offseason, so they are in need of help at the wide receiver position. If added, Crabtree would be competing for playing time behind Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills.

  Raiders | Oakland interested in Michael Crabtree    Mon Apr 13, 01:10 PM

Free-agent WR Michael Crabtree (49ers) is receiving interest from the Oakland Raiders, according to a source. The Raiders are one of three teams showing the most interest in Crabtree.

Footballguys view: This sounds like a Raiders move. Crabtree is not the same player he used to be, but the Raiders are desperate at the position.

  Jaguars | Greg Jennings visiting Jacksonville    Mon Apr 13, 10:14 AM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) is visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday, April 13, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Jennings is making a few stops before he decides on where to play in 2015. The Jaguars could certainly use him, but we think he ends up with the Dolphins.

  Falcons | Working out several MIA prospects    Sat Apr 11, 01:42 PM

Miami (Fla.) WR Phillip Dorsett, Miami (Fla.) TE Clive Walford, Miami (Fla.) RB Duke Johnson, Miami (Fla.) OT Ereck Flowers and Miami (Fla.) CB Ladarius Gunter are all working out for the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, April 11. Miami (Fla.) LB Denzel Perryman is not working out for Atlanta but is meeting with the team.

Footballguys view: There's a lot to like about these Hurricanes prospects. Dorsett has good speed and can be a big-play weapon at wideout. Walford can make difficult catches seem routine, and he's the second-best tight end in this draft class. Johnson is a smaller back, but he has good all-purpose ability. The Falcons are looking for plenty of help in the draft on both sides of the ball.

  49ers | Will meet with Devin Smith    Sat Apr 11, 07:22 AM

Ohio State WR Devin X. Smith has a visit lined up next week with the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Smith was held back in his college career by Braxton Miller's inability to throw the rock. However, when Cardale Jones took over as the starter last season we saw Smith break out. He's a burner who can take the top off the defense in the blink of an eye. He should be a second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Giants | Adrian Coxson impresses    Sat Apr 11, 07:10 AM

Stony Brook WR Adrian Coxson impressed New York Giants scouts at the team's local prospect day.

Footballguys view: Coxson is super fast as evidenced by his 4.28 and 4.33 40-yard dash recorded at the Stony Brook pro day. Coxson bounced from Florida to Maryland to Stony Brook as a freshman and was highly recruited coming out of high school. He compiled 86 catches, 1,425 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns during his college career.

  NFL | DeVante Parker a draft day steal?    Fri Apr 10, 09:26 PM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker is drawing comparisons to Odell Beckham Jr. from several talent evaluators. 'Parker is the kind of kid who could go to the right spot and put up 1,200 receiving yards as a rookie,' one personnel man said. 'He's that good.'

  NFL | DeVante Parker receiving interest    Fri Apr 10, 05:01 PM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker is scheduled to meet with the New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers before the 2015 NFL Draft, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Parker could be in play for the Rams at 10 or Saints at 13 or 49ers at 15. He shouldn't fall much farther than that.

  Bills | Robert Woods set for fewer targets?    Fri Apr 10, 02:32 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods could see a notable drop in targets in 2015 after the additions of RB LeSean McCoy, WR Percy Harvin and TE Charles Clay. Woods was targeted 104 times in 2014 and had 699 yards. However, Woods thinks he'll still have plenty of opportunities to make an impact in the passing game. He'll be playing for new offensive coordinator Greg Roman, and Woods already believes Roman's scheme will create more chances for the offense to make big plays.

Footballguys view: Woods is an odd man out with two additional targets in the short and intermediate passing game added this offseason plus a run-first mentality. It might take him landing on a second team after his rookie contract is up in 2016 for Woods to realize his fantasy potential.

  Steelers | Breshad Perriman meets with PIT    Fri Apr 10, 02:09 PM

Central Florida WR Breshad Perriman is meeting with the Pittsburgh Steelers Friday, April 10.

Footballguys view: The Steelers seem to be set at wide receiver among their top three, but Perriman could be a pick in a "best player available" scenario. It wouldn't be the Steelers style, as they have struck gold in the third round or later at wide receiver repeatedly over the last six years.

  49ers | Anquan Boldin has advice for QB    Thu Apr 9, 10:12 PM

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin said QB Colin Kaepernick just needs to play his way. 'I think sometimes when you try to go off the suggestions of other people and try to please other people, you forget who you are and what got you there,' Boldin said Wednesday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Boldin has been a reliable target for Kaepernick, so he probably "gets" his QB. The new offensive coordinator Geep Chryst has been Kaepernick's QB coach for four years, so one would hope he understands this and gives Kaepernick room to roam in the right ways in the offense. Kaepernick should run more this year, which could enhance the boom in his boom/bust weekly scoring.

  Giants | Kevin White will visit with NYG    Thu Apr 9, 03:01 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White said he is scheduled to meet with the New York Giants before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Giants might be a little (or a lot) concerned that Victor Cruz will come back at less than 100 percent of what he was pre-injury. They might also be concerned that Odell Beckham Jr. might never repeat his rookie season production, but there are some bigger needs (pass-rusher, OL, ILB) they could address with their 9th-overall pick. However, White (and his speedy, play-making ability) would be a fine addition if the other players they have targeted are all gone.

  Bears | CHI will meet with Kevin White    Thu Apr 9, 03:00 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White said he is scheduled to meet with the Chicago Bears before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Now that there is a big 'Brandon Marshall' sized hole in the offense, the Bears need a guy who can step in and play across from Alshon Jeffery. White would be an excellent addition and be able to feast while Jeffery gets the attention. He's got the speed and downfield playmaking ability to be a big-play threat for the Bears. White or Amari Cooper should be there when the Bears pick at 7th overall in the first round of the draft.

  Jets | Kevin White to meet with NYJ    Thu Apr 9, 02:59 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White said he is scheduled to meet with the New York Jets before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: If Marcus Mariota is not there at No. 6, the Jets might reach towards some more receiving talent. White has great upside and Brandon Marshall is certainly on the downward slope of his career. It could be smart to look beyond Marshall, although a pass-rusher or offensive line talent are higher immediate priorities.

  NFL | Hakeem Nicks says he's not done    Thu Apr 9, 02:07 PM

Free-agent WR Hakeem Nicks (Colts) had just 38 catches and four touchdowns in a complementary role with the Indianapolis Colts, but he insists that his career is not over. He also says that he is as healthy as he's been in a long time. 'I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody,' Nicks said. 'That's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it. I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it.' Nicks admits he let his injuries and contract situation with the New York Giants get to him. It does not look like he'll be returning to the Colts in 2015.

Footballguys view: Nicks may not think he's done, but we know his best days are behind him, and the NFL may agree. He was not productive last season with the Colts--and that was with superstar quarterback Andrew Luck throwing the ball. Nicks will be a bench receiver at best unless he finds 'the fountain of youth' or at least 'the energy drink of the less old.'

  Rams | Kevin White to meet with STL    Thu Apr 9, 12:25 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White is scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The St. Louis Rams are in need (again) of a top wide receiver (again) and White is a tremendous option for them if he is there with the No. 10 pick overall. White has tremendous talent and went through quite the transformation at West Virginia, going from raw and unsure to a top-flight, confident receiver. He's also strong - 23 reps on the bench at the Combine--so he can help carry a lot of boxes if/when the team moves to Los Angeles.
