5 Wide Receivers Whose Stock Is on the Rise Following the NFL Combine

Which wide receivers improved their NFL Draft stock with strong combine showings?

John Ross was the reason I got off my couch on Saturday afternoon.

With a lot of interesting-but-not-necessarily-inspiring performances from wide receivers at this year's NFL combine, I needed that. We needed that.

We needed John Ross to run a 4.22 40-yard dash, breaking Chris Johnson's combine record.

No matter what the rest of his workout told you (or lack thereof, since he ended up gimpy after his first and only 40 attempt), Ross won the combine at the wide receiver position. His stock is on the rise, and he'll surely be a first-round pick -- potentially even the first wideout off the board -- in April's draft.

He wasn't the only one who turned heads thanks to his workout this weekend, though.

Let's take a look at five other guys who did, too.
