1. WR Leonard Hankerson, Miami
Hankerson capped off a strong week of practice by hauling in five catches for 101 yards and one score during Saturday's game. His route running skills are vastly improved and his big, strong hands consistently stood out. He has shown the ability to make all the catches (in traffic, over his head, pluck on the run, adjusting to ball away from frame, etc.). There's a drop-off after A.J. Green and Julio Jones in this year's wide receiver class and Hankerson is making a strong push for second-round consideration.
