2013 NFL Draft wide receiver rankings

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE

Sorting through the top 10 wide receivers in the 2013 NFL Draft is a mess. The group is not short on talent, but many of the prospects either underperformed or haven't quite tapped into their potential.

DeAndre Hopkins of Clemson is the No. 1 wide receiver on our board entering April's draft. While he lacks the elite athleticism some of the other prospects in this class have shown, Hopkins has consistently shown an ability to get separation and make tough catches. Few wide receivers have the kind of body control Hopkins has shown.

The rest of the group is filled with question marks. Keenan Allen has his knee injury, Tavon Austin his size and Cordarrelle Patterson his unrefined route tree.

It should be an interesting group to watch come off the board in April.
