    This list is so bad. Manningham isn't in the top 32, but Limas Sweed and Early Doucett are? hahahahahaha Manningham's at least twice as good as both those guys. Malcolm Kelly isn't as good either, and Desean Jackson doesn't make much of an argument either.
    Maybe he just forgot about Mario? Those other wideouts will be taken after he is. Quote that.

    and while we're at it - Felix Jones is better than McFadden, and will be in the pros.

    Outside of you I don't know of anyone else that thinks as highly of Manningham. He is a good well rounded guy but he is not overly fast like Doucet or Jackson and he is not very bid like Bowman, Sweed or Kelly. He is a tweener who probably won't be drafted in the 1st round. But things change and we shall see as the combines begin.

    Early Doucet is garbage. What the hell has this guy done? He has had 1 career 100 yard game and that was only by a yard. It seems like every internet draft "guru" is an LSU homer. Glenn Dorsey and Early Doucet are vastly overrated. You can throw Ali Highsmith and Chevis Jackson into that pile too. I'm surprised Matt Flynn isn't projected to be the #1 overall pick..

    As far as pure WR, I agree with Gloat. I think Manningham will be the best receiver in the draft, but DeSean will be the most valuable.

    Doucet is the fastest guy in college football, that is his big advantage. How that will translate into the NFL is still debateable but his talent is there.

    Huh? He's not even close. DeSean Jackson, Jamaal Charles and Chris Johnson would all be faster than Doucet IMHO.

    Are you serious? Many see him as the best WR in college football. A 4.4 isn't fast? What exactly are Doucet and Jackson running? 4.2s?? lol Manningham runs a faster 40 than Doucet, and the only receiver faster in this class is Desean Jackson.
    He's easily a 1st rounder. That's a given. Probably will go before Doucet, Kelly, Sweed, and maybe Jackson (tedd ginn jr jr).

    Manningham:
    receptions: 72
    yards: 1174
    avg per catch: 16.3
    TD: 12

    Doucet:
    receptions: 57
    yards: 525 (lol)
    avg per catch: 9.2 (lol)
    TD: 5 (lol)
    Kid's name shouldn't be mentioned with Mario's. You think NFL scouts are going to have this underachiever over Manningham? You're crazy.

    Jackson:
    receptions: 65
    yards: 762
    avg per catch: 11.7
    TD: 6

    So far, Manningham is about TWICE as good as your top 2 guys going by the numbers. But I'm the only one that knows this, right?

    Kelly:
    receptions: 49
    yards: 821
    avg per catch: 16.8
    TD: 9

    Who else wants to get slayed?

    Sweed:
    receptions: 19
    yards: 306
    avg per catch: 16.1
    TD: 3

    Oh, and just as a bonus. Not only is manningham better than every receiver here at EVERY category, his rushing stats lead these guys by about 400 yards or more as well. Just sayin'...

    Desean Jackson will get compared to Ted Ginn Jr, but he is much more like Steve Smith from what I have seen. He is a better prospect than Ginn in my view.

    Manningham did have a better QB throwing to him than any of the other guys, and I'd rate him as the 3rd best receiver in this class (behind Kelly and Jackson).

    I could see Kelly going first of the receivers because he is that much more physical than the other 2.

    Team needs will determine who is the 3rd receiver off the board. I could see Manningham having a Terry Glenn type career if he pans out.
