1. Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
Many are now jumping on the Patterson bandwagon, but I've been championing the wagon for a few months now. There's no denying he's very raw in several areas, but no other receiver in this draft has the ceiling Patterson does. He's got a great combination of size, speed and agility, and is capable of affecting a game in multiple ways.
2. Keenan Allen, Cal
Allen didn't take part in the Combine because of a slight knee injury, but it's nothing that should keep him from performing at Cal's pro day. Allen is without a doubt one of the best receivers in this class and should end up being a first round pick with his nice combination of size and speed.
3. Justin Hunter, Tennessee
Hunter is not nearly as raw as his college teammate Patterson, and has a very similar skill set. He just doesn't have the same untapped potential as Patterson, which grades him slightly lower. Still, there's plenty to like about Hunter, and he's in the conversation as a first-round pick.
4. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Don't be surprised if Austin is valued much higher on many boards. He's probably the No. 1 receiver for some teams. It all depends on offensive scheme. Austin can flat out fly and he was arguably the most electric player in all of college football last season. He's simply lethal in open space, but he's limited to be a slot receiver. However, he's not a raw route runner and has impeccable hands. I might rank him fourth, but I expect him to be the second receiver drafted.
5. Terrance Williams, Baylor
Williams has dropped a bit on my board, but not because of anything he's done. His performance at the Combine, while not exceptional, wasn't bad. He just got outperformed by several other receivers. He's still in the late first-round conversation, but is more likely to fall into the second round. This really is a good WR class.
Biggest rise: Ryan Swope, Texas A&M -- Swope got stereotyped as a typical sharp route-running white receiver, who has reliable hands and knows how to get open. Turns out he's got some speed as well. Swope ran a 4.4 40, and when that's combined with some of his other skills, he suddenly looks like a great WR prospect. Don't be shocked if he continues to rise up boards and ends up taken in the late first round much like Jordy Nelson was by the Packers a few years ago.
Biggest drop: Williams, Baylor -- To further show how impressive this WR class is, there really wasn't a huge disappointment at the position. Williams probably took the biggest tumble at the top of the board, but as mentioned above, his performance wasn't bad. The only other receiver I can think or as a disappointment is South Carolina's Ace Sanders who did not put up a good 40 time for a small receiver.

1. Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame
Eifert got his chance to go head-to-head with Stanford's Zach Ertz and outperformed him in every phase of the combine. He looked more athletic and had the better hands, proving he is the better overall prospect. Eifert doesn't necessarily do anything exceptionally, but he doesn't have a weak spot to his game, either. He could be valued as a top 20 pick.
2. Zach Ertz, Stanford
Eifert might have been the better performer at the Combine, dropping Ertz a spot on my board, but he's not far behind his positional rival. Ertz remains a solid prospect and it won't be shocking to see him taken in the latter part of the first round. He's more likely a second rounder, though.
3. Jordan Reed, Florida
In all the hype of the Eifert vs. Ertz drama, Reed has been a forgotten commodity in this TE class. He wasn't used much at Florida, but he's athletic and capable of stretching the field. I thought he was the bet TE in the country prior to this season, but the production didn't reflect that. He doesn't have prototypical size, but he's diverse and can fit into an offense in many ways. He's still worthy of second-round consideration.
4. Vance McDonald, Rice
McDonald is a great athlete at 6-4, 267 pounds. He ran a 4.6 40 at the Combine and was fairly productive in college. There's a significant drop from the first three at the top of the TE board, but McDonald has skills that should translate to the next level.
5. Chris Gragg, Arkansas
For a TE, Gragg can fly. He's listed at 6-3, 244, but with 4.4 speed, Gragg is going to generate plenty of attention in the middle rounds of the draft. He did have some leg injuries that limited him during his senior year, and there's more injuries in his past. He looked healthy at the Combine, though, and could be worth taking as early as the late third round.
Biggest rise: McDonald, Rice -- His 40 time was magnificent for a player his size. He had a solid Senior Bowl, and the Combine has his momentum going in a positive direction. He's poised to enter second-round consideration.
Biggest drop: Travis Kelce, Cincinnati -- Kelce first had to withdraw from the Senior Bowl because of injury, and he apparently didn't impress in interviews at the Combine, either. Kelce's stock is dropping at a rapid pace. He's to get a good workout in soon, or else he might find himself undrafted.
