3 Players To Watch In The 2016 NFL Draft

This week I’m going to focus on some of the wide receivers that the Cowboys could be interested in with their high second round pick.

Corey Coleman

If you’re from Texas, you might have heard this wide receiver’s name already because he’s just down the interstate in Waco, Texas where he has been catching passes for the last three years. The Baylor junior made quite a name for himself during college and eventually took home the Biletnikoff trophy for the country’s top receiver. While some think he might be coming from a difficult college system, he believes he’ll transfer to the pros just fine. He made that very clear when we went down to Baylor last week for their pro day. He also has made it clear that he’s ready to be in the likes of elite NFL receivers, as he has signed a deal with the Jordan brand, just like our very own Dez Bryant.


Josh Doctson

We’ll be staying in the state of Texas to talk about our next receiver; Josh Doctson is just down the road at TCU. Doctson was a key part to TCU’s big time 2014 season. The receiver made a couple flashy catches that made scouts believe he is ready for the National Football League. Unfortunately, Doctson suffered a wrist injury and missed a couple of games this past season. However, from his social media you can see that he’s clearly rehabbing and still chasing his NFL dreams.


Michael Thomas

Michael Thomas | Ohio State | WR

Height: 6-2 Weight: 212

I’ve already told you about Braxton Miller, but there is another Ohio State wide receiver that is a name to remember, Michael Thomas. The receiver has an impressive combination of size and speed. Some scouts believe that he is the most well-rounded prospect at his position. And just like Miller, he won’t have a hard time feeling comfortable at AT&T Stadium after already winning a College Football Playoff National Championship there last January.
