Almost every position is loaded at the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game, and receiver is no exception. On Monday, I tried to focus on two position groups: receiver and defensive end.

Don't miss: Defensive end evaluation

Here are my thoughts on the receivers I noticed.

  • Laquon Treadwell: he is probably the best receiver at the event. At 6'3 and a solid 195 pounds, Treadwell, who is looking at Ole Miss, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, is the total package. He has the length and strength to get off the jam, the quickness to get separation in tight space, long speed, and leaping ability to go up and get the football. If Ole Miss lands Treadwell he could have a season much like Amari Cooper did as a freshman for the Crimson Tide in 2012.
  • Robert Foster: recent Alabama commitment Robert Foster of Pennsylvania was excellent on Monday. He was much more polished than I expected him to be, showing excellent coordination for a receiver with such size. Alabama grabbed an excellent receiver prospect in Foster.
  • Robbie Rhodes: Rhodes showed great quickness Monday, but might not be as big as the listed 6'1 and 185 pounds. He struggled at times with the physical press of the elite defensive backs at the event, but is still an excellent player.
  • Sebastian LaRue: there are some questions about Larue's eventual position at the next level, but he certainly looked quite smooth Monday. The USC commit used his quickness and athleticism to get open, and he made some very acrobatic catches. He is considering taking visits to Texas A&M and Notre Dame.
  • Stacy Coley: Coley is arguably the top receiver in Florida. For some reason, he did not wear football pants on day one, instead opting for shorts. He dropped at least one catchable pass and did not play like I've seen him do on numerous other occasions, but he wasn't bad.
  • Earnest Robinson: Here's a photo:
  • Jordan Cunningham injured his knee, but the injury is not thought to be one that will keep him out of Friday's game. Stanford is thought to be Cunningham's leader, but this one seems far from over.
