Chiefs selected Georgia WR Chris Conley with the No. 76 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Conley (6'2/213) made 23 starts for Georgia, finishing his career with 117 receptions for 1,938 yards (16.6 YPR) and 20 TDs. A high-character individual, Conley was named the SEC's 2014 Scholar Athlete of the Year. After playing in Georgia's run-first offense with bad QB play, Conley put himself on the national radar with a scintillating Combine, running 4.35 with an absurd 45-inch vertical and Megatronian 11-foot-7 broad jump. With 33 3/4-inch arms, Conley has a huge catch radius and excellent hands, dropping just one pass as a senior. He's not just a workout wonder. Conley is straight linish with tight hips, but offers all the tools to become a dangerous vertical stretcher. There's plenty of opportunity for playing time in Kansas City, where there's nothing behind Jeremy Maclin. May 1 - 10:21 PM

Georgia WR Chris Conley recently visited the Seahawks.

The Seahawks have not prioritized athleticism at receiver the last few years, but Conley would flip that script. According to Zach Whitman, Conley's SPARQ score (which is a composite for athletic testing) places him in the 98.8 percentile of all NFL players. Conley was not that consistent at Georgia but also was not given a large number of opportunities in a run focused offense.

Georgia WR Chris Conley has visits scheduled with the Eagles and Colts, according to Alex Marvez.

Conley could be viewed as the top athlete at wide receiver in this draft. His exposures were limited in Georgia's offense, so a team might extrapolate off his contested catches and explosion and see a large amount of upside. We have no idea where Conley could be drafted, but third-round seems achievable.

The Cowboys will put Georgia WR Chris Conley and QB Hutson Mason through a private workout this week.

Conley was one of the best performers at the NFL Combine so expect a number of teams to give him a second look in the next month due to Georgia's run first offense. Mason is likely an undrafted free agent, but some evaluators have praised his willingness to stick to the pocket and throw to contested receivers.

Georgia WR Chris Conley had a private workout with Houston Texans HC Bill O’Brien at UGA pro day, according to Online Athens's Marc Weiszer.

"A little bit about philosophy and a little bit about just the way that I prepare and the way that I play the game," Conley told Online Athens. "I had a pretty good, almost an hour meeting with him." With the Texans looking for talent at the WR position, now that Andre Johnson has departed, the 6-foot-2, 213-pound Conley could be a day 3 option for the Texans. The Georgia prospect impressed evaluators with a 4.35 40-yard dash, a 45-inch vertical, 11'7" broad jump, and 18 reps on the bench press at the combine.

Georgia WR Chris Conley "has gone from a potential free agent and moved into the Day 3 mix" due to his postseason work, according to ESPN's Steve Muench.

Some would even say he's in the Day 2 mix. You probably know by now the reason for the jump. Conley (6-foot-2 and 213 pounds) posted 4.35 and 4.41 forty times at the combine, adding a 11-foot-7 broad jump, third best in combine history, and a 45-inch vertical, tied for third best since 2003. All are important metrics for receivers. "He didn't have a breakout senior season, so he has flown under the radar," Muench wrote. "He flashes big-play ability and good ball skills, most notably on the Arkansas tape, but he appears faster than quick and is a little mechanical as a route runner."
Mar 7 - 8:05 PM

The Patriots staff, including HC Bill Belichick, put Georgia WR Chris Conley through an on-campus workout on Wednesday.

Georgia's pro day is not until March 18, but teams can visit prospects on campus as often as they want. It is one way teams work around the 30 allotted in-house visits. Conley blew up the Combine with his combination of straight-line speed and explosive jumps, but his change of direction was well below average. We wonder how high Conley will go in the draft, and if the third-round is a legitimate possibility.
Mar 5 - 10:03 AM

ESPN's Mel Kiper confirmed Georgia WR Chris Conley's stock is up after his ridiculous NFL Scouting Combine performance.

Conley (6-foot-2 and 213 pounds) posted 4.35 and 4.41 forty times at the combine, adding a 11-foot-7 broad jump, third best in combine history, and a 45-inch vertical, tied for third best since 2003. "Yes, he moves up some on his fantastic 40 and crazy-good vertical, but Conley did produce as well, with 91 receptions over the last three seasons," Kiper wrote. Conley is on the Day 2 line right now.

Georgia WR Chris Conley posted 4.35 and 4.41 forty times at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Allow us to introduce you to Saturday's big winner, even over Kevin White. Conley, measuring about 6-foot-2 and 213 pounds, also posted a 11-foot-7 broad jump, third best in combine history, and a 45-inch vertical, tied for third best since 2003. Some didn't think Conley was even worth a Day 3 pick heading into today. Now, he'll be in consideration for a draft call beginning on Day 2. Yes, his testing numbers were that good. Scouts are sprinting back to hotels themselves to watch more Georgia game film.

Georgia WR Chris Conley could be the receiver this year who "runs faster than expected or jumps higher than anticipated," believes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Conley could break into the 4.3’s (listed as a 4.55s forty by scouts entering the season) and later jump north of 42-inches in the vertical," Pauline wrote. The analyst is on record as saying Conley could stick in the NFL as a No. 5 receiver. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Conley has "good build-up speed, as well as the body control and soft hands to make tough receptions," CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer.

Georgia senior WR Chris Conley should stick in the NFL as a No. 5 receiver, wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"The Bulldogs have found ways to slip receivers into the late part of the draft," Pauline wrote. "Receivers who then go on to have moderate success on Sunday. Kris Durham immediately comes to mind and Conley could be next. The sure handed pass catcher is a consistent underneath target who finds ways to get open or wins out in battles. Though his production has been slightly down this season the senior comes through for Georgia during important moments, including late in the Georgia Tech game on Saturday. His pre-draft workouts won’t excite anyone but his work ethic and personality will surely be embraced by NFL coaches and will help him stick as a fifth receiver." The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Conley has "good build-up speed, as well as the body control and soft hands to make tough receptions," CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer.

Georgia senior WR Chris Conley caught five passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win versus Arkansas.

Conley has "solid hands and good enough speed," an AFC scout told NFL.com last month. "He's a heady player in routes, really good at finding soft spots in zones." We think, best-case scenario, that he projects as a third or fourth receiver at the next level. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Conley has "good build-up speed, as well as the body control and soft hands to make tough receptions," CBS Sports' Rob Rang wrote over the summer.

One AFC scout told NFL Media's Albert Breer that Georgia senior WR Chris Conley is not a great talent, but steady.

Conley has "solid hands and good enough speed," the scout said. "He's a heady player in routes, really good at finding soft spots in zones." Conley has made a couple of highlight reel plays, but as a whole he projects as a third or fourth receiver on a team, at best.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Georgia senior WR Chris Conley has NFL tools.

"Conley has good build-up speed, as well as the body control and soft hands to make tough receptions," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound Conley benefited most from Malcolm Mitchell's unfortunate season-ending knee injury last year, posting 45 receptions for 651 yards and four scores.

Georgia junior WR Chris Conley will be a game-time decision against Auburn due to an ankle injury.

Conley tweaked his ankle in the final play against Vanderbilt and has missed the last two contests against Florida and Vanderbilt. Due to injuries, the junior is the team's leading receiver. "If Chris was able to practice full speed the whole week, I’d feel a lot better about trying to predict his impact," Richt said. "He may not even play, but I don’t even know that yet."
