             With the 2015 NFL Draft just five days away, a lot of excitement is building up of who the #1 Wide Receiver is in the 2015 NFL Draft.  Most sports media and scouts say its between Alabama WR Amari Cooper and West Virginia WR Kevin White,  I believe that Amari Cooper is the best WR in the 2015 NFL Draft Class. With a lot of excitement here at Sports Grumble for the 2015 NFL Draft, I have decided to release my Top 10 Wide Receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft Class.

Be sure to follow me on my various forms of social media, and let me know what you think of my Top 10 Wide Receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft. As well as your comments on what your Top 10 Wide Receivers would be.
