    Who has the ability to be a difference maker inside? Wes Bunting

    1. Devon Wylie: Fresno State (5-9, 185)
    Is limited a bit by his size, but is the kind of cat-quick slot guy with great separation kills who can be an X-factor inside in the NFL. Another major positive with him is that he also has very good deep speed as well.

    2. Jarius Wright: Arkansas (5-10, 180)
    A coordinated athlete who is sharp as a route runner, tough over the middle and knows how to get open vs. man and zone. Will get re-routed vs. press at times and looks more like an inside player at the next level, but has the skill set to make a roster and carve out a big niche early.

    3. Joe Adams: Arkansas (5-11, 190)
    An explosive athlete who can go get the football down the field and has some savvy to his game setting up routes. However, is inconsistent catching the football and as a route runner. Nevertheless, does enough well to make a roster and see early playing time inside and outside. An ideal fit for Philadelphia running the deep crossers.

    Do you think Wylie will last until the fifth round?

    I figure Adams will fall.

    He does have questionable hands and route running, but he makes up for it in special teams return ability and what he can do when the ball is in his hands with his vision.

    Would love to see him drop til late.

    Everyone's all over Wylie, but his college production was pretty crappy.

    I like Broyles. Like what I hear about Hilton as well.

    Eric Page is one of my pet cats. His ceiling is 3rd WR, never be anything more than that, but I think he'd excel there.

    Wylie!!!! Wylie!!!!!!!

    Hate that people are starting to be all over him. I've been asking for him for months when I thought we could get him in the 6th. He's perfect for us.

    Honestly, I like Wylie, just ask realteck, I actually will be heartbroken if we don't pick him up but don't be shocked if you don't hear is name called at all. The internet draft world seems to be A LOT higher on him then the scouting community.

    Jarius Wright is the more polished/productive slot receiver. And he has great hands to boot.

    Wylie is the better returner IMO.
