Michael Gallup, WR, Colorado State

Michael Gallup’s collegiate career started at Butler County Community College, before transferring to Colorado State.

The minute he stepped onto campus, he showed off his speed, size and athleticism. He caught 76 passes, 1,272 yards and 14 touchdowns in his first season. His 14 receiving touchdowns ranked second in CSU history.

Gallup was named first-team All-Mountain West and named to Phil Steele’s All-Mountain West first team.

His senior season put him in the CSU record books. He caught a career-high 100 passes for 1,413 yards and seven touchdowns. Six of his 13 games played resulted in a minimum of 100-plus yards, two of which he collected 200-plus yards.

At the Senior Bowl, Gallup led the North team with three catches for 60 yards.

According to Pro Football Focus, Gallup is ranked as the top wide receiver and noted he is the most underrated wideout in the Draft. However, most sites/experts expect Gallup to be a day two pick.

The concern surrounding the 6-foot-1 receiver is his route-running ability. In addition, mentioned the only reason why he didn’t play at a big school was because of low SAT scores.

He’s drawn comparisons to Nelson Agholor and has all the tools to become a key contributor at the next level.
