Drake London – WR (USC)

Kyler Murray could just throw the ball in the air and odds are pretty good that Drake London will come down with the catch. London carries rare size, at 6-foot-4, 219 pounds. He also has a workhorse mentality, meaning he’s not afraid to catch the ball in traffic, nor is he afraid to put his body on the line to make a big play.

London doesn’t come without his flaws, however. He’s not the fastest receiver and he has a tough time developing routes. Meaning if he were to go to Arizona, Murray couldn’t just drop back and immediately fire the ball his way. Some have even referred to London, given his limited athletic ability, as a small tight end.

Overall, London could evolve into a hybrid type of player. Comparable to what Marques Colston was for the New Orleans Saints. So if he lands in Arizona, expect immediate production who will atone for the ill-fated Hakeem Butler pick a few years ago.
