Jeremiah: Corey Coleman ranks fifth among WRs since 2013

Corey Coleman might be the best wide receiver available in the 2016 NFL Draft, but held up against the light of the impressive wide receiver draft classes since 2013, he doesn't quite reach the top.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah, on NFL Network's Path to the Draft, ranked Coleman fifth among the top receivers to enter the league since 2013, behind West Virginia's Kevin White, Alabama's Amari Cooper, Clemson's Sammy Watkins and Louisville's DeVante Parker. Analyst Charles Davis slotted Coleman even lower, ranking him No. 8 after another Clemson receiver, DeAndre Hopkins.

"When I look grade-wise at where I have (Coleman), I've got to put him (below) DeVante Parker and (above) Mike Evans," Jeremiah said.

Jeremiah ranked Ole Miss' Laquon Treadwell at No. 7 in the group, just behind Evans, and Notre Dame's Will Fuller behind FSU's Kelvin Benjamin at No. 13.

The analysts ranked the receivers from past draft classes based not on how they have done as pros, but on how they were graded entering their respective drafts. Last week, Jeremiah did the same exercise with quarterbacks, and ranked North Dakota State's Carson Wentz No. 7 among the quarterback draft classes since 2011.

Here are Jeremiah's complete receiver prospect rankings since 2013:

  1. Kevin White, West Virginia (2015 draft)
  1. Amari Cooper, Alabama (2015 draft)
  1. Sammy Watkins, Clemson (2014 draft)
  1. DeVante Parker, Louisville (2015 draft)
  1. Corey Coleman, Baylor (2016 draft)
  1. Mike Evans, Texas A&M (2014 draft)
  1. Laquon Treadwell, Ole Miss (2016 draft)
  1. Tavon Austin, West Virginia (2013 draft)
  1. Brandin Cooks, Oregon State (2014 draft)
  1. DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson (2013 draft)
  1. Marqise Lee, Southern Cal (2014 draft)
  1. Kelvin Benjamin, FSU (2014 draft)
  1. Will Fuller, Notre Dame (2016 draft)
