Rob Gronkowski, Arizona6-foot-6, 264 pounds
2009 Stats:DNP
The Skinny:Gronkowski is another injury concern, as he missed last season after having back surgery. But, the huge prospect caught 75 passes for 1,197 yards and 16 touchdowns from 2007-08. "Gronk" claims he is fully healthy and could sneak into the first round.

Anthony McCoy, USC6-foot-5, 259 pounds
2009 Stats:22 catches, 457 yards, 1 touchdown
The Skinny:McCoy's best skill is his blocking, even though he led the Trojans with a 20.8-yard average per catch last year. He does have soft hands and a wide frame that breaks tackles well.

Jimmy Graham, Miami6-foot-6, 260 pounds
2009 Stats:17 catches, 213 yards, 5 touchdowns
The Skinny:Graham only has one year of collegiate football under his belt, as he was a standout on the Hurricanes' basketball team. But, he possesses excellent hands, good size and a nose for the football, as evidenced by his five scores. Graham may be a project, but he has upside. Dorin Dickerson, Pittsburgh6-foot-2, 223 pounds
2009 Stats:49 catches, 529 yards, 10 touchdowns
The Skinny:Dickerson has played linebacker, kick returner, receiver and fullback, but settled in at tight end for the Panthers. He was stellar at the Combine, where he had 24 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press and a 4.4-second 40. Dickerson figures to be more of an H-back type of player. Dennis Pitta, BYU6-foot-5, 245 pounds
2009 Stats:62 catches, 829 yards, 8 touchdowns
The Skinny:The former Cougar is thought of as more of a big receiver, in the mold of Indianapolis Colt Dallas Clark. Pitta's blocking skills could use some work, according to, but he does run solid routes and has great hands. He is also older (25) because of a two-year LDS mission to the Dominican Republic.
