    Rising
    Robert Meachem, 6-2, 214 pounds, Tennessee

    An underclassman with outstanding size and 4.38 speed. Had 71 catches for a school-record 1,298 yards last season. Tremendous upside because of athleticism and late development. Could be second receiver drafted behind Johnson.

    Falling
    Ted Ginn Jr., 5-11, 178 pounds, Ohio State

    Because of the foot injury he suffered in the national championship loss to Florida, he hasn't been close to 100 percent for the scouts. Lacks size and top receiving skills but has blinding speed and quickness. Outstanding returner.

    Keep an eye on
    Dwayne Bowe, 6-2 , 221 pounds, LSU

    He's one reason JaMarcus Russell could be the top player selected. A senior who has excellent size and exceptional big-play ability. Ran a 4.51 for scouts. Makes big plays in big games.

    Sleeper
    Jacoby Jones, 6-2, 210 pounds, Lane

    He came out of nowhere in the all-star games and impressed scouts in his private workouts. Good size to go with 4.50 speed. Hasn't played against top competition. Should go in the third round.
