1. Robert Woods, USC
Woods is the most polished wide receiver in the draft. He possesses good speed, runs crisp routes, and has soft hands. He also does a great job of running after the catch. He was very productive at USC (252 career catches), and was especially dangerous in 2011. He did take a backseat to Marqise Lee last season, but his 2011 tape highlights No. 1 capabilities.

Possible Destinations: Rams, Raiders, Redskins, Texans, & Vikings

2. Cordarrelle Patterson, Tennessee
As the most physically gifted wideout available, Patterson is sure to hear his name called in the top half of round one. At 6-2 and 216 pounds, he runs a 4.42 40-yard dash, giving him an excellent combination of size and speed. He has little problem separating from cornerbacks, so he could develop into a reliable deep threat. Last year was his only year of FBS experience, but his production was outstanding, proving he could play against high-level competition.

Possible Destinations: Browns, Jets, Panthers, Titans, & Rams

3. Tavon Austin, West Virginia
Despite size limitations, Austin could develop into a special player. He’s quick in space and has outstanding straight-line speed. He’s not limited to a slot role, but his skill set makes him a dangerous weapon from that position. Frankly, the size issues (5-9 & 174 pounds) are overstated. He’s a playmaker, so get the ball in his hands and look out.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Buccaneers, Panthers, Rams, & Steelers

4. Justin Hunter, Tennessee
The major red flag holding Hunter back is a lack of focus catching the ball. He drops the ball too much, and it’s frustrating to watch him make the spectacular play only to see him let the ball go through his hands on his next opportunity. Nevertheless, he goes up and gets the ball at its highest peak, and he uses his size to out position defensive backs. He did tear his ACL in 2011, but fully recovered in time for 2012. If he ever becomes sure-handed, then you’re a looking at a complete player known for big-play ability.

Possible Destinations: 49ers, Panthers, Patriots, Rams, & Titans

5. Terrance Williams, Baylor
Williams is a big-bodied possession receiver. He goes up and plucks the ball out of the air. He’s had great production the last two years, even without Robert Griffin III in 2012. His quickness is very good considering his size, but more important, he’s among the better route runners in the draft.

Possible Destinations: Bills, Panthers, Rams, Steelers, & Vikings

6. DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
Hopkins tore up LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl this past New Year’s Eve. He entered the season overshadowed by Sammy Watkins, but emerged as Clemson’s top wide receiver. He doesn’t bring major athleticism to the table, but he’s a polished route runner and coming off a very productive season. As a pro, he’s an undervalued No. 2 wide receiver that could produce as a No. 1 in a pass-happy system.

Possible Destinations: Bengals, Panthers, Patriots, Packers, & Vikings

7. Markus Wheaton, Oregon State
A strong Senior Bowl elevated Wheaton’s stock. He’s a vertical threat that consistently separates from the defensive back. His route running is underrated. Frankly, he’s among the best route runners available. He’s productive, fast, and has all the tools to play a major role in an NFL offense.

Possible Destinations: Cardinals, Packers, Patriots, Texans, & Vikings

8. Keenan Allen, California
Allen has good size and runs quality routes. He gets in and out of his breaks quickly, and does a fine job of going up and getting the ball. However, he sometimes fails to make routine catches, and may struggle separating from NFL defensive backs. Misgivings as a deep threat and a couple of medical issues -- particularly his knee -- may cause him to slide out of round one.

Possible Destinations: Packers, Patriots, Rams, Texans, & Vikings

9. Kenny Stills, Oklahoma
Stills has loads of untapped potential. He’s explosive off the ball and his vertical speed is outstanding. He’s a deep threat, who goes up and makes the tough catches. He’s raw in several areas (namely route running and focus), but he represents great value in a strong class.

Possible Destinations: Browns, Chargers, Titans, Texans, & Patriots

10. Tavarres King, Georgia
King plays bigger than his size. He had an outstanding Senior Bowl, where he ran excellent routes. He’s not always the most reliable pass-catcher, but he offers good potential.

Possible Destinations: Browns, Bengals, Chargers, Lions, & Packers

11. Ryan Swope, Texas A&M
Ideally suited to play the slot, Swope has good hands and is a crafty route runner. He’s quick in space and displayed excellent straight-line speed at the combine with a 4.34 40-yard dash.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Lions, & Texans

12. Da’Rick Rogers, Tennessee Tech
Because of an indefinite suspension, Rogers transferred to Tennessee Tech from Tennessee. He has great size (6-2 & 217 pounds) and isn’t afraid to go across the middle. He worked out well at the combine, but he’ll have to answer questions about concerns relating to his character.

Possible Destinations: Bengals, Colts, Chargers, Redskins, & Texans

13. Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech
With good production and solid workouts, Patton’s climbing many boards. He has ideal size, but he needs to pluck the ball out of the air better, especially in one-on-one situations. His speed is good enough to separate, but he’s not a burner. He could develop into a complimentary receiver that goes across the middle and moves the sticks.

Possible Destinations: 49ers, Bengals, Cowboys, Redskins, & Texans

14. Stedman Bailey, West Virginia
An undersized (5-10 & 193 pounds) but productive wide receiver, Bailey’s sneaky quick and a fluid route runner. He also catches the ball well. He may not adapt well to playing on the outside, but he could develop into a reliable option from the slot.

Possible Destinations: Bears, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Lions, & Texans

15. Aaron Dobson, Marshall
A tall and well-built target, Dobson takes long strides and catches the ball well. He doesn’t separate, though, which ultimately bumps him down a few boards. He possesses the qualities of a possession receiver in the mold of Muhsin Muhammad.

Possible Destinations: Bengals, Colts, Chargers, Redskins, & Texans

It will be interesting to see who Ted picks up. He has a great eye for finding WRs. WR is not a "need" position in the normal sense. But because GB is a pass heavy team they always need some one in the pipeline learning the system and working their way up the depth chart.
It wouldn't be a disappointment if they picked up T Williams.

uffda udfa (49m) : It's just fine.
musccy (1h) : 5 questionable Packers, none for Falcons. Not good.
uffda udfa (1h) : Jordy not listed as OUT or DOUBTFUL. Questionable on injury report.
uffda udfa (2h) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (2h) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (3h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (3h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (3h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (7h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (7h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (7h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (7h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (8h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (9h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (9h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.

Zero2Cool (10h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (11h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (11h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (11h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (12h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (12h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (12h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (12h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.

Zero2Cool (14h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (18h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
