I think Keenan Allen's going to be the best WR from this class.....So I would go with him.

Then I have Justin Hunter, then Woods, then Terrance Williams, then Marquess Wilson

What about Austin from WVU?

He looks like the next bigtime slot WR.

Desean Jackson and Percy Harvin play in west coast offenses. Any receiver can play in the WCO the way the system has evolved today.


DeSean and Percy are used primarily as deep cross types, the coaches put them out there, and look for them on the mismatch. Neither is really the "go to" on a 3rd and 5 slant call.

Both have also benefitted from the modern game favoring offensive players. Bump and run isnt as effective as it used to be thanks to the downfield chucking enforcement. Teams give both of them plenty of cushion, allowing for short completions at times, and allowing them to create after the play.

Neither fits the mold of a WCO outside WR though.

The "mold" has long been antiquated for such a player in the WCO. The entire NFL is filled with hybrid players and hybrid schemes. No one today runs the WCO in such a way that only a WR that fits a certain mold can be used effectively. Kevin Curtis had a 77/1,110/6TD season for the Eagles in a WCO at 6'0" 186 pounds and he played on the outside. The mold is antiquated. If the guy can play, he can be used in the WCO that are being used today as opposed to the ones being used back in 1996. It's 2012, if the guy can ball he will make it in the WCO.

The "WCO WR" label seems to be given to guys who are shifty, can run a variety of routes, and have reliable hands.

Any offense that emphasizes timing and execution is where these WR types would fit. Patriots and Manning-era Colts aren't technically "WCO", but their receivers rely on timing, route running, execution, and hands to move the ball.

The better question I'd ask myself is, who are the best route runners while also having the best hands?

Surprised to see no one mention DeAndre Hopkins in here yet...I've only seen 3 game cuts of his thus far but I really like what I see out of him.

I think Cobi Hamilton looks like a good WC receiver. Seems like a taller Jeremy Maclin without the continuous small injuries bug.
