The wide receiver position is quickly becoming one of the most coveted positions among NFL draft circles. Since the 2010 draft, a total of 116 receivers have been selected, including three in the first round in the 2013 draft alone.

When looking ahead to the 2014 draft, the receiver position appears to be deeper than ever. One conference contributing to the overall depth is Conference USA. Although the conference is not known to be a national power, the caliber of NFL-ready talent improves each year. The 2014 draft should be no different, especially at receiver.

This is a look at the top five draft eligible wide receivers from Conference USA.
