Depth is good at wide receiver, but if you can land one of the top six or seven wideouts, it’s worth a second-round pick. Grab at least two from the top 17 on this list by Rounds 5 or 6 and you should be in good shape.
1. Demaryius Thomas, Denver ($42): Peyton Manning’s favorite target and Manning threw for 55 TDs last season.
2. Dez Bryant, Dallas ($38): The Cowboys will need to score a ton of points.
3. Calvin Johnson, Detroit ($37): Higher on most boards. Megatron’s a beast but not enough TDs.
4. A.J. Green, Cincinnati ($32): An absolute monster (98 receptions, 1,426 yards, 11 TDs).
5. Julio Jones, Atlanta ($32): One of the league’s rising stars before he was injured last year.
6. Brandon Marshall, Chicago ($32): Career-high stats (100 catches, 1,295 yards, 12 TDs) and might duplicate them.
7. Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh ($30): Coming off a remarkable season (110 catches, 1,499 yards, 8 TDs) and might repeat.
8. Jordy Nelson, Green Bay ($28): Steady, proven commodity when healthy; pencil in 80 catches, 1,200 yards, 8 TDs.
9. Keenan Allen, San Diego ($28): Should improve some off a standout rookie season (1,046 yards, 8 TDs).
10. Alshon Jeffery, Chicago ($27): Broke through with a top 10 season (89 catches, 1,421 yards, 7 TDs).
11. Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay ($26): Constantly flies under the radar (last year 1,224 yards, 7 TDs).
12. Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona ($26): Finally had that rebound season we were expecting but still a borderline starter.
13. Randall Cobb, Green Bay ($25): Will he bounce back from injury is the big key.
14. Roddy White, Atlanta ($24): Another Pro Bowler coming off an injury marred season but has skins on the wall.
15. Cordarrelle Patterson, Minnesota ($24): On everyone’s sleeper list for a reason.
