Clemson WR Sammy Watkins was voted the draft's No. 1 wide receiver by 17 NFL personnel men.
The only surprise, perhaps, is that Watkins wasn't a unanimous choice. Instead, the Tigers' stud garnered 15-of-17 first-place votes and a pair of second-places. Texas A&M's Mike Evans finished second with 59 points in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel voting system, followed closely by LSU's Odell Beckham with 55 points. Oregon State's Brandin Cooks came in fourth with 25 points, besting USC's Marqise Lee 22. This WR class is already drawing comparisons to the best of all-time, including the 1996 class of Keyshawn Johnson, Terry Glenn, Eddie Kennison, Marvin Harrison, Eric Moulds, Amani Toomer, Muhsin Muhammad, Bobby Engram, Terrell Owens and Joe Horn.
