ESPN's Max Olson argues that Oklahoma senior WR Sterling Shepard was the Big 12's biggest omission from draft expert Mel Kiper Jr.'s positional rankings.
"The reason I think Shepard will rise up the draft ranks by the end of the year has everything to do with Lincoln Riley," Olson wrote. At East Carolina, Riley oversaw dominant slot WR Justin Hardy. "In that scheme full of simple routes, the 5-foot-10 slot receiver ran wild," Olson wrote. Hardy, who went in Rd. 4 in May, was targeted 173 times last season (more than Amari Cooper, Kevin White and Tyler Lockett), according to ESPN Stats & Info. "I think Shepard can be even better," Olson wrote. "If Shepard stays on the field and comes anywhere close to replicating Hardy's production, we'll be talking about him as a draft gem by season's end." The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Shepard had 51 catches for 970 yards and five touchdowns in 2014 despite missing almost half the season due to injury. Jul 19 - 5:05 PM
