As of now, it does not appear that there will be any Justin Blackmon, A.J. Green or Julio Jones in the 2013 NFL draft class. While all three of those receivers were college superstars who established themselves as top-10 draft picks, there is not even one sure-fire first-round draft pick yet among draft-eligible wide receivers.
There are a few players, however, getting hype as the potential No. 1 wide receiver in the draft class, and one of those players near the top of the list is California junior Keenan Allen. With that said, however, it may not even be safe to say that Allen should be a first-round draft pick, assuming he declares for this year’s draft.
