Around the NFL
Blackmon, Floyd and Fleener top McGinn's receivers
Posted Apr. 21 at 05:00 AM
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is one of the better NFL writers around, so his analysis of the draft's top prospects is annually worth a read. NFL GMs, both named and anonymous, and scouts around the league offer up their thoughts for his columns.
The draft's top receivers, both wideouts and tight ends, are analyzed in this column. Justin Blackmon tops the list, as expected, but Michael Floyd is there too. Three other wideouts are listed as possible first rounders, and another listed as a second-rounder , Stephen Hill, could also sneak into the first; many mock drafts, for what they're worth, put him there.
In his column on the subject, McGinn also has some interesting quotes from observers. One is that both A.J. Green and Julio Jones from last year's class are better than anyone in this year's group. There's quality depth, but the top guys aren't as good.
The other note is that there appears to be some disenchantment with the tight ends -- some good receivers, which is all fantasy coaches care about, but few complete players. "It's a bad group," says one team's scout.

I live in Milwaukee and have read McGinn's draft articles for years. I read, save, and reread them before and after each draft. I'm glad people everywhere can access them online.
