Clearly the Vikings will draft a WR (or two) in the first 3 rounds, so who would you take?

How would you rank the WR's in this class?

1a. Keenan Allen (most pro ready but limited ceiling - medical concerns)
1b. Justin Hunter (highest ceiling but will require grooming)
3. DeAndre Hopkins (Sydney Rice but slower)
4. Robert Woods (I want to rank him higher)

5. Markus Wheaton (Jake Reed?)
6. Cordarrelle Patterson (Don't trust him to mature into NFL)

6. Da'Rick Rogers (not on the Vikings)
7. Quinton Patton (Needs work and doesn't have elite traits)
8. Chris Harper (I like the guy, just something about him)

NL. Tavon Austin (LOL, no thanks)

I would love to see the Vikings land Aaron Dobson in the 2nd round, and possibly nab Ryan Swope in the third or with the teams first 4th round selection.

As for rankings;

Keenan Allen - The knee injury is starting to be a concern, but if he grades out healthy at his private workout, he's the best receiver in the draft, and a perfect fit for this team.

DeAndre Hopkins - probably the most fine tuned receiver in this draft. Hopkins is a great receiver that does many of the little things that make receivers great. He may not be the greatest athlete, but he will be a very good receiver.

Aaron Dobson - The most overlooked receiver in the draft. Dobson has everything you look for in a receiver, he's tall, long arms, great hands, deceptive speed, he's tough, and he has great body control.

Justin Hunter - The most intriguing receiver in the draft. From a physical standpoint it's hard not to drool over Hunter, but his consistent drops his last year at Tennessee are cause for concern.

Robert Woods - Another all around receiver who has gotten grossly undervalued. Woods, like Hopkins is good at just about everything. He's a natural hands catcher, runs very good routes, has good speed, he's elusive in the open, and has very good body control.

Marcus Wheaton - Another receiver that has learned many of the little things that a receiver needs in order to be successful at the next level. Wheaton has very good hands, and is a threat to score from anywhere on the field.

Quinton Patton - a physical and tenacious receiver, Patton doesn't have the greatest measurable a, but he produces. He's got great hands, good speed, and he is a savvy route runner. He has surprisingly good quickness in the open field, and will break his share of tackles.

Ryan Swope - a crafty and very smart receiver, Swope knows what he's doing on the football field. He he has great hands, is a great route runner, and has deceptive speed, but it's his toughness and willingness to take a big hit while delivery a clutch catch that makes him very valuable.

Cordarrelle Patterson - a phenomenal athlete, Patterson is one of the more electrifying receivers in the draft. But at this point all he is is athletic potential, he's extremely raw as a receiver, and he's just as much of a risk to bust as he is to boom.

Terrence Williams - not the same level of athletic freak that Patterson is, Williams is another receiver that has all of the physical tools you look for in a top receiver, but he's relied too heavily on his athleticism to get him by. Like Patterson he's more of an athlete at this point than true wide receiver.

Wow! Quite a variance in opinions thus far. Shocked

Perhaps the question is vague and has been interpreted in various ways?

Confused

Who i think have best chance to be the best of the rest.

1-Rogers
2-Wheaton
3-Austin
4-Woods
5-Hunter
6-Patterson

Prefer we don't select Allen or Hopkins in the 1st. Don't like what they would offer for a 1st round price tag.

Allen - Far too inconsistent hands, didn't care for how he let everything come into him. He doesn't seem all that willing to battle for the ball or position on the field. Too many injuries has effected his readiness for the NFL game. No way a team can use a first round pick on him.

Hunter - He and Allen have many of them the same issues with their games. Both plagued with vital inconsistencies in key areas of their game. Both solid athletes but neither has much experience in how to get anything out of it. Especially in terms of the routes this team will need from them.

Rogers - Reads as every bit of the questionable character. Possesses no real quantifiable quality to get past them. Awful catching process. Isn't worth the headache.

This is Viking specific and who i would prefer to draft:

1. Cordarrelle Patterson (1st)
2. DeAndre Hopkins (1st)
3. Markus Wheaton (1st)
4. Keenan Allen (2nd)
5. Quinton Patton (2nd)
6. Robert Woods (2nd)
7. Josh Boyce (2nd)
8. Aaron Dobson (3rd)
9. Justin Hunter (3rd)
10. Terrance Williams (3rd)

I left off Da'Rick Rogers, even though I would put him in the top 5, as I dont think the Vikings will have an interest.

I consider Patterson, Hopkins, and Wheaton as first round worthy. The rest mostly look like 2nd round picks.

Most underrated WR in the draft, bar none, is Josh Boyce. Physically, the guy is probably one of the best athletes at the position. He is a polished and complete route runner, can play slot or boundary, does a good job creating separation, physical and willing blocker, and has soft hands to make catches down field. the only flaw I have really seen as common is a lack of height. Boyce should be a top 60 pick.

He is built like Percy Harvin, with 4.3 speed, elite agility, 20+ bench press reps, and is a polished and proven receiver.

Id love to grab Patterson in the fist and Boyce in the second.
