NFL Draft Rankings 2013: WR Big Board

The Titans do need to get a WR that's capable of not getting arrested multiple times

Keenan Allen. Maybe not a future Titan?

It's quite evident that the Titans need a receiver that is a law abiding citizen, good teammate, and has relatively good health. Fortunately, the 2013 WR class is deep with such talents. Kendall Wright is a pick in the right direction but he's only one man among many who have failed to make much of an impact for this organization on and off the field. Jake Locker would be better served to have more than one reliable weapon not named Kendall Wright. Britt is bordering on being a washed up malcontent cancer, Hawkins is well, Hawkins, Washington has been the steady rock but he's getting up there in age and who knows what's going on in Williams' head at any given moment. Preston is very raw but showed flashes of what he could be if coached up competently. I'd like to apologize for not getting this big board out sooner but with preparing for the Senior Bowl, NFLPA game, and Shrine Game, I just ran out of time.

Keenan Allen is the top choice for now. He was impressive despite having horrible QB play from his brother. Terrance Williams is the runner up by a small margin. Williams showed the world that he could flourish without RG3 and Kendall Wright as teammates. TW had a good Day 1 at the Senior Bowl as well. He has a lot of speed and quickness to go along with the required short to intermediate game. Hopkins won out over Austin because of he's bigger and produced consistently while Sammy Watkins was out while Austin had Bailey to help him all along. Hamilton had a great year all things considered with the Arkansas program in turmoil. Woods took a huge step backwards due to the emergence of Marqise Lee and the regression of Matt Barkley along with nursing a foot injury. Patterson maybe the best receiver Tennessee had while Hunter struggled a bit coming out of the knee injury. Wheaton has the most potential to move up if he has a good Senior Bowl (Day 1 certainly helped matters). Ryan Swope has the most tenuous hold of anyone on the board after coming in undersized and having the smallest hands of everyone in the Senior Bowl. Chad Bumphis is underrated thanks to bad QB play and he had a good showing during the Shrine Game week that improved his stock. Just missed: Marquise Goodwin Texas, Da'Rick Rogers Tenn Tech, Dan Buckner Arizona, Josh Boyce TCU, Roy Roundtree Michigan, Marcus Davis Va Tech
