The 2014 NFL Draft is only a few weeks away, and as we inch closer, I will continue providing my position rankings for the draft and discuss which prospects the Green Bay Packers may consider selecting come draft day.

I have already provided my rankings for safety, tight end, and inside linebacker. Click on the links if you’d like to check these outs.

Today, I’m going to take a look at the deepest position in the draft, wide receiver.

There are so many good players in this year’s wide receiver crop that a team, like the Packers, will be able to get a quality wideout well into the third or fourth round.

After losing James Jones this offseason and with starters Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson entering contract years, the Packers just may take a hard look at this year’s crop of receivers.

Here are my top 30 wide receivers for the 2014 NFL Draft. I grouped the players into four tiers.

Tier One being potential impact players at the next level.

Tier Two being players who could be solid starters or make contributions as a rookie.

Tier Three being developmental prospects who have some upside but may not be ready to contribute immediately.

And Tier Four being role players who could offer depth on the roster.
