Mel Kiper Jr. thinks as many as seven wide receivers could go in the first round of next year’s NFL Draft, including Kentucky’s own Lynn Bowden.
During a special guest appearance on “Golic and Wingo” on ESPN Radio earlier today, Kiper Jr. said Bowden is among the many talented offensive players in college football this season.
“Lynn Bowden at Kentucky, Jalen Reagor at TCU are two others that could’ve been on the big board, that are in that 26-30 range,” he said, when breaking down his top prospects.
“Five (wide receivers) in the top 25, maybe seven in the first round come late April.”

However, Logan Stenberg earned a mention as Kiper Jr.’s third best senior offensive guard.
