After seeing historic classes last year and in 2015, this year is poised to be even more so. We are looking at potentially 6 wide receivers going on day one and upwards of 20 (through 2 days) and 40 (all 3 days) being drafted. Not only is there excellent depth and elite-level talent at the top, but there is a wide variety of styles to fit any offense.
When I grade wide receivers, I value two things above all else: route running and separation. If you can break away from the defender, it makes everything that much easier for you and the quarterback. Everything else you want to see from a receiver is weighted evenly, as they all matter to truly make a great receiver
