2003 NFL DRAFT: Receivers Rankings2003 NFL DRAFT: RECEIVER RANKINGS

Receiver Strength Weakness

1. , The prototype. The perfect prospect Could get a little stronger

**** is the best prospect in the draft and a future Pro Bowl performer. He's cocky and has the superstar attitude, but he never quit on the team when things went south last year. Many say he has Randy Moss skills, but he's not as fast. He has the hands, the athleticism and the attitude to become one of the league's best.

Projected Round: 1 | Projected NFL career: Pro Bowl.

2. , Huge and fast. Great athlete Didn't put up monster numbers

***** is 6-2, 230 pounds and runs a sub-4.4. As good as he is, he could use a bit of work on his technique and a little bit of overall polish, but that can all be worked out. He was so much better than every defensive back he faced, yet didn't put up the unbelievable numbers he probably should have. He also had trouble when matched up with his athletic equal, , in the Fiesta Bowl.

Projected Round: 1 | Projected NFL career: Potential Pro Bowl.

3. , Speed, strength and size Neck problem knocked him out

Every wide receiver is cocky, but ***** takes it to another level. His workouts have been outstanding and scouts are falling in love with his size and speed, but he still needs plenty of work. His ego might be a problem if things don't go his way. If his neck is healthy, **** has the potential to be a superstar.

Projected Round: 1 | Projected NFL career: If he can stay healthy, he's a Pro Bowl talent.

4. , Huge and fast. Great athlete Still needs a ton of work

**** could be one of the tougher calls in the draft. He's 6-4, 225 pounds and runs a sub-4.4, but he needs so much work on his technique that he might be seen by some as a bit of a project. He never really played up to his talent level at ****.

Projected Round: 1-2 | Projected NFL career: Starter, but a team will need to be patient.

5. , A big player who plays big Lacks top motor

**** is a basketball player at receiver. He has the body of a small forward, but he isn't a skinny 6-5, 215 pounds. He can jump out of the stadium and is sensational when matched one-on-one against small defensive backs. His problem is his motor. It's not always running. For an inexplicable reason, he seemed to need pumping up for big games. He's the ideal No. 2 receiver and could emerge into a top No. 1 with the right coaching.

Projected Round: 3 | Projected NFL career: Starter.

6. , A big WR that likes the big game He thinks he's better than he is

***** is a big player that's great at stepping up his play when the team needs him most. He's not as fast as the other big receivers in the draft and might be a problem if there's adversity. Without the top end speed, he needs to rely on his size, which is fine, and his technique, which needs a lot of work.

Projected Round: 3 | Projected NFL career: A superstar with the right coaching.

7. , Outstanding speed with nice size Isn't a pure wide receiver

**** is extremely fast with great straight-line speed. He's a sprinter playing receiver without the top end quickness in his routes. With work on his all-around receiving skills, he could become a great player. Is there really a problem with **** receivers? How come they aren't superstars?

Projected Round: 1 | Projected NFL career: A ten year starter, but he might miss something special.

8. , Great athlete and great pure WR Doesn't time well. Way cocky

It didn't matter who was throwing the ball, **** was always making plays. He doesn't have blazing speed and isn't all that strong, but he makes plays. He's not a combine type of prospect even though he's a great athlete, he's simply a good football player. He's colorful and cocky.

Projected Round: 3 | Projected NFL career: Starter if he doesn't have to be the star

9. , Very athletic and very tall Fast, but NFL DBs will stay with him

The 6-7 **** is an interesting prospect with speed to go with that size. He's not a blazer and won't blow past any NFL defensive back, but he'll outjump them all and could be an unstoppable goal line and short yardage weapon.

Projected Round: 2-3 | Projected NFL career: Starter.

10. , Big, physical and athletic Average speed

***** has a basketball player's athleticism in a big body. He's not a speedy receiver and could handle getting a little stronger. Gage is already a great prospect, but he has more upside than any of the top receivers.

Projected Round: 3 | Projected NFL career: Starter and potentially a star with some work.

11. , Elite quickness. A playmaker Small and needs to get stronger

**** is only 5-8 (on a good day) and doesn't seem like a star football player, but he always makes plays. He was extremely productive even as the focus of opposing defenses. While another year in the weight room might have helped his stock, he'll be a good second receiver and could be Az Hakim-like in the right offense.

Projected Round: 4 | Projected NFL career: Starter.

12. , Great jumping ability. Big Not fast. Isn't a deep threat

With size, nice hands and a solid work ethic, ***** is a nice prospect and should be a good 5-7 year pro. He can jump out of the stadium and could be a strong goal line receiver. He doesn't have elite level talent and won't be a Pro Bowl player, but that doesn't mean he won't be a good NFL receiver.

Projected Round: 3-4 | Projected NFL career: No. 2 or No. 3 starter.

13. , Big player that makes plays Not much speed or quickness

***** has the body of a small forward with big hands and long arms. He doesn't have much speed and won't get past too many NFL defensive backs. He always made plays and was as clutch as any receiver in college football two years ago.

Projected Round: 4 | Projected NFL career: No. 2 or 3 starter.

14. , Productive and speedy Slight. Seems like he'll break in two

***** was as productive as any SEC receiver over the last few years and has the athleticism to be an NFL player. He isn't big and doesn't have otherworldly skills to make up for it. Even though he dropped some big passes in some high profile games, he has nice hands.

Projected Round: 4 | Projected NFL career: Slot receiver. Possible starter.

15. , A basketball player. A leaper Still getting the hang of football

***** played football in high school before walking on to the football team. He has superior all-around athleticism with jumping ability, but he's not fast.

Projected Round: 4 | Projected NFL career: Potential starter. If he gets the hang of football, he could be a star.

6 cant be Brandon Lloyd, he is not big, although my Boldin pick may not be right either.

#4 is Calico, the rest are incorrect.

Rogers was finally healthy for a season in 05. Maybe with Martz in town Rogers has a shot at living up to his loftly draft expectations. He has all the physical tools to succeed. The question is his drive. Rogers is a very solid sleeper pick this year. No way does slow poke Mike Williams become the #2 WR for Detroit. No broken bones & no marijuana use = Charles Rogers putting up close to 1,000 yards & 6-8 TD's. Book it!

I hope you're right. As of two days ago, I have Rogers in every one of my 3 leagues. (Just got him pretty cheap). I don't see 1,000/6, but a top 50 WR is all I realisitcally expect from him.

Anquan Boldin wasn't even the best WR on his college team......Bryant Johnson was the first round pick, Boldin was supposed to be his understudy........

Considering Johnson played at PSU and Boldin played at FSU, thats quite a statement.

:yes: I had to check, thinking maybe he meant there was a better WR at FSU at the time.But that would have to be PK Sam. Javon Walker left in 2002.

 

beto

Footballguy
Javon Walker was in the '02 draft. Maybe him?

He OZ, did I get any right in my last guess?

Footballguy
#14 and 15 are going to be nearly impossible to get. I don't think they even got drafted.

 

-OZ-

Footballguy
I think #15 is Terrence Edwards (Robert's brother) but i only figured it out by research, not recollection.
#14, but very good. :thumbup: #15 is Bush - wish I could recall his first name.

 

beto

Footballguy
My final guesses are that Bryant Johnson is #12 and Billy McMullen is #13.

Can't believe he didn't have Bryant in the top 15.

 

beto

Footballguy
I should have known Gabriel was #6. I have him on my '03 list. Aiken, too.

No idea who the Bush guy was.
