After Luck & RGIII, it’s anxious time for players
“If I did happen to go there, it would be good,” said Tannehill, who would compete with starter Matt Moore. “It would give me some familiarity with the offense, so I think it would help ease the transition a little bit.”
Oklahoma State’s Justin Blackmon will likely be the first wide receiver picked, possibly as high as No. 4 by Cleveland. Notre Dame’s Michael Floyd, Georgia Tech’s Stephen Hill and Baylor’s Kendall Wright are other receivers who might go in the opening round.
“It’s a great time to come into the league if you are a receiver,” said Blackmon, a two-time winner of the Biletnikoff Award as college football’s top receiver. “More teams are throwing the ball a lot more, it’s more wide open than ever on offense.”
Other players who could be top-10 picks are Ingram, Alabama running back Trent Richardson, LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, Mississippi State defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and North Carolina defensive end Quinton Coples.
After winning the national championship in January, Alabama could be a big winner in the opening round. Crimson Tide teammates Barron, Richardson, linebackers Courtney Upshaw and Dont’a Hightower, and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick could all hear their names called Thursday night.
“This is a great experience, especially when you have a team where we came from,” Richardson said. “All these guys are going to the draft and we’re all going to be in the first round. Alabama set the bar high last year when they had four come out and all four went in the first round. Hopefully we can break that record and have five.”
