    I love these developing assets articles. It makes my week.

    Ryan, you say the 2014 WR class is stacked but is there a true #1 WR coming out? Is there a guy who can carry an offense like a young Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, A.J. Green, or Julio Jones? A 1500 yard NFL Receiver? I like Watkins, Evans, and Benjamin a lot but if I’m going to invest the resources it will take to get them I need reassurance that one of them can be the focal point of an NFL offense. I just don’t see that total package when I look at any of them. Maybe I will if Evans runs a surprise 4.4. What do you think?

    • Bob says:

      Sammy Watkins is that guy.

      • PV says:

        Watkins is a better player and dynasty asset then Benjamin. Watkins is much faster, runs better routes, and has better hands than KB. I like KB’s potential but he needs another year in college to develop his game. This coming from an FSU fan by the way.

    • Ryan McDowell says:

      I think Watkins is that guy. Many already consider him a top 10 dynasty WR. I’m not sure I’ll have him quite that high, but he’ll be close. As far as the rest of the class goes, it’s more about depth. Lee and Evans are both potential studs and then you have a long list of guys with great potential:

      Matthews
      Cooks
      A Robinson
      Adams
      Richardson
      Landry
      Beckham
      Coleman
      Moncrief
      Benjamin
      Parker

    I personally think jordan Matthews is the best wr prospect..

    • Ryan McDowell says:

      You’re not alone. I’ve heard from many who really like him. I can’t wait to see these guys go through the combine and pre-draft process so we can all learn more about them. Matthews has dominated in the SEC for the past couple years, which says a ton.

    Love these articles, but I would like them even better if there was a follow up on them after the games.

    Another stellar article Ryan. I posted this in the forum but it fits here too. I’m starting to become a bit overwhelmed trying to prep for the draft. Off the top of my head I was able to list 33 prospects who I’ve either read glowing reports or watched them play and come away impressed time and again. 33!!!

    Obviously some guys will go back to school I’m sure but there’s likely going to be nearly two full rounds of rookie prospects that are very highly touted and trying to separate them at this point is quite daunting.

    I usually like to have a Pre-Combine ranking for my personal use and make alterations to it Post-Combine, Pre-Draft and Post-Draft just to see if there’s any irregularities, risers/fallers etc. But, trying to put together that initial list is proving to be quite challening this year.
