Kevin White
West Virginia, 6-3, 215
Looks like an NFL receiver and expected to be an immediate impact player. Not as polished as Cooper but has the rare combination of size, speed and strength.

DeVante Parker
Louisville, 6-3, 209
Deceptively fast and has great hands. Wants the ball in his hands when the game’s on the line and has a knack for winning jump balls.

Nelson Agholor
USC, 6-foot, 198
Nigerian-born Agholor is quick and can sky for the ball. Though on the thinner side, he’s elusive. Also can be very productive in the return game.

Quickly been moving up mock drafts in recent weeks because of his speed, size and catching radius. His drops, however, are maddening. Father Brett was a 10-year NFL receiver.
