4. Tyson Campbell, Georgia

Size: 6-1, 193

The Good: The guy can move. He’s got 4.38 wheels to go along with the excellent size and frame, and he cuts and moves with any of the smaller, shiftier receivers without much of a problem.

He’s got the upside to be a great value get after the first round.

Projected Round: Second
