Video Time: Draft Sleeper Wide Receivers

New, comments

This is our final "video time" before next weekend's draft. So I thought I'd highlight three of my favorite late-round wide receivers in this draft.

The first video is of Nevada WR Marko Mitchell.  Mitchell measures in at over 6'3 1/2" and ran a 4.49 40 time officially - though some had him clocked as high as 4.43 - at the Combine.  He's got good hands and he loves going up to get the ball.

The second video is of Stephen F. Austin WR Dominique Edison.  Edison is a little over 6'2 and weighs 204 pounds.  He was timed at the Combine at 4.47 in the 40, though he improved that to 4.42 at his pro day workout.  He was also very productive last season, going over 1,000 yards receiving and catching 18 touchdowns.

The last video is of Quinten Lawrence from McNeese State.  He's shorter than the other two, measuring in just under 6'.  But he's very explosive.  He has 4.40 speed and averaged 19.2 yards per reception over his 4 years as a starter at McNeese State.  He only played in 4 games as a senior, though, because of a broken ankle he suffered.  Though he only weighed in at the Combine at 184 pounds, he managed to bench press 225 pounds 20 times - the 4th highest total among receivers.  That translates on the field in terms of his ability and willingness to block down the field.
