NFL Draft 2013: Stedman Bailey a '3rd or 4th round pick', according to Gil Brandt

NFL.com draft expert Gil Brandt believes West Virginia wide receiver Stedman Bailey will be selected in the third or fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft.

West Virginia wide receiver Stedman Bailey will likely be selected in the third or fourth round of the 2013 NFL Draft according to NFL.com draft expert Gil Brandt. Bailey will be in the green room at the 2013 NFL Draft as Geno Smith's guest, marking the first time a green room invitee has brought a teammate as his guest.


Bailey left West Virginia after his junior year in which he totaled 113 receptions for 1,627 yards and 25 touchdowns. Although he put up the superior numbers, Bailey is overshadowed by fellow WVU receiver Tavon Austin, who is expected to be a top-10 pick. Bailey is ranked as the No. 10 wide receiver in the draft and the No. 68 player overall by Mocking the Draft.

Bailey and Smith are best friends and have been teammates since high school, taking a joint recruiting trip to West Virginia before they both committed to the Mountaineers. They will continue their journey to the NFL together on Thursday, April 25, when Smith is expected to be picked in the first round. "I want to be there to see Geno shake Roger Goodell's hand, be in his corner like I've always been," Bailey said.
