The 2014 NFL Draft is absolutely loaded with playmakers. Seemingly every position has at least one player with star playmaking potential, especially on the offensive side of the ball. There is no shortage of players in this year's draft class who could have the potential to emerge as weapons in the NFL game.
With that said, ladies and gentlemen, a ranking of the top five offensive playmakers in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Coming out of Kent State, Dri Archer isn't the most well-known name in the draft, but he is one of the best playmakers. Running a 4.26 in the 40 yard dash at the combine was impressive enough, but when you throw in the fact Archer is also extremely elusive and quick, it’s easy to see why he is considered one of the most dangerous offensive players available in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Much like Archer, De’Anthony Thomas is perhaps best known for his blazing speed. Although his official combine 40 time was underwhelming, Thomas is still one of the fastest, quickest and most dangerous playmakers in this year’s draft.
Perhaps the fastest receiver available in the 2014 NFL Draft, Brandin Cooks is soaring up draft boards, and for good reason. There are few players better in space, and with Cooks' combination of speed, elusiveness and burst, it’s easy to see what makes Cooks such a great playmaker.
The only quarterback to make this list, Johnny Manziel has been one of the best pure playmakers in college football over the last few seasons. He is an electric athlete with the ability to escape even the fastest defenders, and as far as playmakers are concerned, at the quarterback position, Manziel is the best.
The best all-around wide receiver available in this year’s draft, Sammy Watkins is the total package and a playmaking beast. He possesses all the skills of an elite receiver, and as far as playmaking ability is concerned, Watkins is the best in the draft.
