2013 NFL Draft Preview: Wide Receivers

Posted Apr 2, 2013

A look at the top wide receiver prospects in the 2013 NFL Draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We will devote a week to each group, looking back at some of the Broncos' previous picks at the position and showcasing some of the top prospects through top stories, blogs and Broncos TV videos.

This week: wide receivers.

Below you will find five of the top prospects at receiver. For a photo gallery of the position group, click here.

TOP PROSPECTS AT THE POSITION:

KEENAN ALLEN
• POSITION: Wide receiver
• COLLEGE: California
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 206
• CAREER STATS: 205 catches, 2,570 yards, 17 TDs
• COMBINE: Did not participate
On what he's telling teams:
"That I'm a starter. I feel like I'm a starter, self-motivated, a humble guy. My work ethic is there. I'm a film junkie so I'm definitely doing that type of preparation for the game."
Player
TAVON AUSTIN
Player • POSITION: Wide receiver
• COLLEGE: West Virginia
• HEIGHT: 5'8"
• WEIGHT: 174
• CAREER STATS: 288 catches, 3,413 yards, 29 TDs
• COMBINE: 4.34 40-yd. dash, 14 bench reps, 32.0 in. vert. jump
On his return ability:
"I think it will help a lot. It’s one of my specialities. I really take pride in my punt returning and kick returning. A lot of teams are looking for a guy who can do multiple things on the football field. I think I’m that guy."
DEANDRE HOPKINS
• POSITION: Wide receiver
• COLLEGE: Clemson
• HEIGHT: 6'1"
• WEIGHT: 214
• CAREER STATS: 205 catches, 3,009 yards, 27 TDs
• COMBINE: 4.57 40-yd. dash, 15 bench reps, 36 in. vert. jump
On his three biggest strengths:
"My physicality at the wide receiver position, I feel like it separates me from other wide receivers. Being a student of the game, I feel like I'm very knowledgable about my position. And I would say being able to take coaching. I try to get better every day and listen to the coaches."
Player
CORDARRELLE PATTERSON
Player • POSITION: Wide receiver
• COLLEGE: Tennessee
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 216
• CAREER STATS: 46 catches, 1,086 total yards, 8 total TDs (at Tennessee)
• COMBINE: 4.42 40-yd. dash, 37 in. vert. jump, 128 in. broad jump
On going from junior college to Tennessee:
"It was a good path, man. I had to go to junior college and ended up at Tennessee. I wouldn’t change it for nothing. Every place I went, I enjoyed every second of it."
ROBERT WOODS
• POSITION: Wide receiver
• COLLEGE: USC
• HEIGHT: 6'0"
• WEIGHT: 201
• CAREER STATS: 252 catches, 2,930 yards, 32 TDs
• COMBINE: 4.51 40-yd. dash, 14 bench reps, 33.5 in. vert. jump
On making a living playing football:
"This is what I've always wanted to do. I was training with Cordarelle Patterson, working out one day, and we were like, 'Wow. This is work. This is our job.' It's really an honor to get paid and allowed to do something that I enjoy, that I love doing, wouldn't mind putting in extra work for. That's what I love. I love playing football, and I guess this is the time to get rewarded at the top level."
