The past few WR classes have been pretty stacked. That trend seems to continue, at least with, the SEC this year. The conference is loaded at the WR position for the 2016 NFL draft. Each program in the SEC has at least one WR that’s worth a serious look.

Laquon Treadwell of Ole Miss is considered by most to be the #1 WR for the 2016 NFL draft. And for good reason, Treadwell plays so strong at the catch point he’s so physical and catches the ball effortlessly. Has great technique and his release is very nice as well. He doesn’t seem to have an extra gear but his speed is more than functional. He should be picked in the top 10 of the 2016 Draft if he chooses to declare. He is that good.
Other standouts to watch at the wide receiver position from the SEC are, but not limited to, Pharoh Cooper, Marquez North, Duke Williams, Malcolm Kennedy, Josh Reynolds, and De’Runnya Wilson. Each of these players have a lot to offer, and will be fun players to watch throughout the upcoming CFB season. This class (if the underclassmen declare) has everything from size to speed to players that have a little bit of both.
Over the course of the season I will be going in-depth and will be looking at each player listed above as well as other players that jump on to the scene. From top to bottom the WR position in the SEC will be very productive, and should produce some high-caliber NFL prospects. Will there be a Mike Evans or an Amari Cooper in this class, that’s the question. The potential is there, that is for sure!
