As the era of the running back fades away, the era of the wide receiver is really hitting its stride (pun intended). With the rules favoring quarterbacks and receivers in the NFL, the WR has become more of a priority than ever. You need guys to throw the deep balls, and you definitely have to have guys who can catch them.
One man, Oklahoma State's Justin Blackmon, stands out as the clear top WR choice this year. Though I'm sure some of the other guys on this list would disagree with that. These guys have the size, the speed and the hands to contribute right away in the upcoming season. Several of these guys will hear their names called on Thursday night, and the rest should go in the second round on Friday.
