MockDraft 101′s Opinion 

  • Randle is still developing as a WR since he wasn’t used properly at LSU because of medicore QB play, but has all the traits you look for in a starting WR in this league. His size and and athletic ability makes him an intriguing option late in Round 1 or early in day 2. He may never develop into a true #1 option, but his ability to get the ball and go vertical remind many of Vincent Jackson.
