2015 NFL Draft position breakdown: Wide receivers

Wide receivers were the focus this week, the fifth of our positional breakdowns. When Broncos TV sat down with wide receivers coach Tyke Tolbert, we came away with better knowledge of what difficulties players face when they transition from college to the pros.

"When you're in college, you have a couple teams you play against that maybe you know you're going into the game that you're better than, whereas the NFL you play teams every week—every week, it's your rival. There are times when the receiver is open but he may not be open as opposed to college," Tolbert said. "But [in] the NFL, there's a very small window when a guy can be open, so it can be very tight coverage, again, because the speed of the game is really fast."

From there, the Broncos TV crew and analyst Andrew Mason took a look at the prospects in regards to who could be the best fit, and who might be sleepers, which you can see below.

For individual prospect breakdowns, Mason wrote articles on Michigan's Devin Funchess and Louisville's DeVante Parker. Broncos TV added their own breakdowns on those players, as well as Amari Cooper, Dorial Green-Beckham and Kevin White.
