2014 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Rankings: Updated

Josh Collacchi takes a look at the upcoming Wide Receiver class in this year's draft.

The Eagles taking a Wide Receiver early in the draft will solely depend on if the team decides to re-sign Jeremy Maclin. With Riley Cooper playing well of late, and showing that he can certainly contribute, the need for a pass catcher is not as glaring as it once was.

With that being said, this class is one of the best we have seen in a long time, and it would be smart for the Eagles to take one of these big-bodied receivers, as there is a plethora of talent available.

If you have not had a chance to watch Kelvin Benjamin from Florida State, I strongly recommend doing so. At 6'5 and 235 pounds, he is a matchup nightmare. In addition to his size, he has good speed and can go up and get the ball better than anyone in college football.

Keep in mind, these rankings and grades are not final, as there is more football to be played, and even more tape to watch.

Here are the updated WR rankings for the upcoming draft class.

9 Kasen Williams Washington 2 JR
10 Paul Richardson Colorado 3 rJR
11 Odell Beckham Jr. LSU 3 JR
12 Jarvis Landry LSU 3 JR
13 Robert Herron Wyoming 3 SR
14 Cody Hoffman BYU 4 SR
15 Brandon Coleman Rutgers 4 rJR
16 DeVante Parker Louisville 4 JR
