Laquon Treadwell brings size and toughness to the Vikings offense. He can own the middle of the field and produce in the red zone. Body control. Physical. Still developing at the position too. This is a solid target for QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Washington first round pick Josh Doctson caught 72.5 percent of the passes thrown his way in 2015, the best rate among Big 12 receivers targeted at least 50 times last season, according to ESPN Stats and Information. The former TCU WR averaged 7.9 receptions, 132.7 yards and 1.4 touchdowns per game in 10 games as a senior.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Josh Doctson could end up being the top WR in this class. Very good at the point of attack. Smooth route runner. Leaping ability. Redskins add another weapon for quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Will Fuller can take the top off the defense with his 4.3 speed. Explosive player. Flip the field. Good compliment to DeAndre Hopkins in Houston.

Darron Lee's impact should come early in the Jets sub-packages. Speed and versatility to align in multiple spots. Can walk out over the slot, cover space in zone coverage and run with tight ends.

Cleveland Browns first round pick Corey Coleman had more receiving yards after contact (283) during the past two seasons than any other Big 12 player, according to ESPN Stats and Information.

Oakland Raiders first round pick Karl Joseph used these three words to describe himself on the football field: "Physical. Fearless. Passionate." The West Virginia S returned to school for his senior season to improve his stock and graduate. His decision paid off tonight as he was the first Big 12 player selected in the 2016 NFL Draft at No. 14 overall.

Keanu Neal is a perfect fit for the Falcons defensive scheme. Slide into that SS spot and play physical football. Cover 3 defense.
