Former NFL GM says wide receiver draft class could include Hall of Famers

There's no doubt, the 2014 NFL Draft is viewed as one of the deeper in recent memory.

In addition, it's been some time since we've seen a class of wide receivers so talented at the top, a class which could very well include future Hall of Fame talent, this according to a former NFL general manager Phil Savage.

"Ten years from now, when we add up the production of this entire class, I would expect the numbers would be very strong," Savage said, according to jsonline.com. "Are there a couple Hall of Famers in here? Perhaps. They'll certainly get that chance because the ball is in the air."

Granted, speculation that we'll see even one Hall of Fame player out of the wide receiver draft class despite none even touching an NFL field at this point seems a little over the top, but it's hard to question Savage's track record.

From drafting Joe Thomas to being an intricate part of selecting Ray Lewis, Ed Reed,  Jamaal Lewis, Terrell Suggs and more as a member of the Ravens organization, Savage's eye for talent is rather impressive.
