Long story short, receivers and corners are continuing to get taller, faster, and stronger, and I don’t think anybody necessarily has a problem with that. I think we all want to see the transition from shooting guards to small forwards, with Calvin Johnson being the ideal mold. There are a few full package receivers in college right now, and with the proper development these guys can emerge as dangerous NFL receivers. Mike Evans (Sophomore, Texas A&M) Evans is listed at 6-5 and 225 pounds. On a team full of athletic receives, Evans emerged as Manziel’s number one guy. He used his body well to catch 82 balls for 1,105 yards and five touchdowns. He’s pinned as a possession receiver, and was unbelievable at using his strength and athleticism (along with some improv) to get the best of his defender. The huge target is in for another 1,000-yard season no matter who is quarterback is. Click here to view the video on YouTube. Brandon Coleman (Senior, Rutgers) Heading into his senior season there seems to be a lot of hype surrounding the 6-6 220-pound wideout. Last year Coleman led the team with 718 receiving yards and tied the school record with 10 touchdowns off of his 43 receptions. Although Coleman doesn’t have breathtaking speed (like Evans), he runs his routes well and uses his body and height to win nearly every ball. Coleman should see more action in the passing game this season and will flirt with 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns.   Don’t be surprised to see his name come up in the first round of next year’s draft.

Listed at 6-6 and 225 pounds, Green-Beckham came out of high school as the number one recruit.  The true freshman started off very slow, mainly because Missouri’s quarterbacks, but was able to pick it up at the end of the season to total for 395 yards and five touchdowns in 10 games. However, in his last five games he recorded 21 receptions for 267 yards and four touchdowns. What really separates Green-Beckham from the previous two is his speed. He’s known as the full package as he can fly by secondaries or take advantage of a corner with a jumpball. I’m sure Missouri will do whatever they can to get the ball in his hands to help him breakout. And if he’s able to get going he’ll emerge as one of the most exciting players in college football.
