2015 NFL Draft: Who are the best WRs of the draft class?

New, comments

The Arizona Cardinals probably won't draft one of the top 5, but it is a talented class.

The wide receiver class was one of the best we have seen from 2014. In 2015, it is also really talented. SB Nation's Matt Ufford and Dan Rubenstein go over the top of the class, going over who are the best five receivers out of this draft class.

They include Kevin White, Amari Cooper, DaVante Parker, Doriel Green-Beckham and Jaelen Strong.

Aside from Green-Beckham, who has some pretty significant off-the-field things going on right now, all of these guys are expected to be taken in the first round.

In fact, perhaps excluding Green-Beckham, none will be available when the Arizona Cardinals make their selection at number 24.

If one is available, probably no one expects the Cardinals to go receiver early. There are other needs and they already have a pretty full stable of receivers.

However, that won't keep the Cards from drafting on later. Bruce Arians has a reputation of taking receivers in the middle rounds.

In fact, Arizona has drafted three receivers in two years with Steve Keim and Bruce Arians leading the way. Only one made the roster -- John Brown.

There are guys to watch later -- Tyler Lockett, Jamison Crowder and others.

As much as drafting a receiver in the first round would make me shake my head at this point, one guy I really like is Jaelen Strong. It probably stems from my being an Arizona State fan, but wouldn't he make a good Michael Floyd replacement -- one that wouldn't cost over $7 million in 2016? He has speed, leaping ability and great ball skills.

I don't think it would happen, but I wouldn't complain too much if he ended up a Cardinal.
