From the college perspective, how good are these guys? It’s a weak class of receivers, but which five prospects have the upside to be the main men going into the 2018 NFL Combine?

Just simplify it – who can play football well enough to make an impact at the next level? At least at the moment, here are your five best wide receivers.

5. Christian Kirk, Texas A&M

Career Statistics: 229 catches for 2,796 yards and 26 scores, 121 rushing yards, 22 yards per punt return and six scores, and 21.3 yards per kickoff return with a touchdown.

Why Christian Kirk Is Here On The List: The star from the start of his career, he rose up on a team full of strong receiver prospects and always produced.

Built a bit more like a running back, he’s strong, cut-on-a-dime quick, and knows what to do with the ball in his hands as both an elite return man and a receiver. Even when keyed on as a No. 1 target, he manages to find a way to make something happen.

There’s no questioning his heart, his character, or his desire to do whatever it takes. He’s known for the flashy plays, but he’s just a good, tough football player.

What The NFL Types Want To See: Does he have the deep wheels? He looks quicker than fast, but a terrific 40 time – anything 4.5 or under – will boost up his stock. He doesn’t have the prototype body, and he’s a little bit smallish, so really – with the Indy lights on, how athletic is he? The measurables will matter with him.

Bottom Line: A very, very good part of a receiving puzzle, plug him in as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver and he’ll be brilliant. He might not be a No. 1, but he’ll have a long, productive career.
