2009 NFL Draft Rankings: WIDE RECEIVERS 1. Michael Crabtree- Texas Tech, Eligible Soph- Crabtree has all of the skills necessary to be a top 5 pick. The only thing holding him back is that he plays at Texas Tech. Some are going to attribute his accomplishments to the offense he plays in but let me assure you that this guy is the real deal. 2.

Jeremy Maclin- Missouri, Eligible Soph- Maclin has had a great season and I would be surprised if he didn‚Äôt leave for the draft this season. He hasRead More »
