The wide receivers, running backs, and quarterbacks took center stage on Day 2 of the on-field portion of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine on Sunday, with the receivers’ light shining the brightest of the trio of positions.

In one of the deepest wide receiver classes in recent memory, several top prospects solidified their draft status, second-tier players made a push up the board, and some late-round guys had excellent on-field showings.

With the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft elapsed, the draft class has finally taken shape.

Last year, a record 73 underclassmen declared. This year, the following 102 players, who announced they would forgo their collegiate eligibility and enter the 2014 NFL Draft, have shattered that record. (Note: The official count of players is 98, as Teddy Bridgewater, Dion Bailey, Adrian Hubbard and Carl Bradford did not need to be granted special eligibility because they had already graduated from their respective universities).

The final college football game of 2013 is also expected to be the final college game for one of college football’s biggest superstars. Though he has still two remaining years of eligibility, Texas A&M redshirt sophomore quarterback Johnny Manziel plans to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft, according to a report from NFL.com’s Gil Brandt.

Manziel might not be the only Aggie to leave College Station early. Wide receiver Mike Evans, also a redshirt sophomore and projected first-round pick, also plans to leave school with two years of remaining eligibility, according to Brandt’s report. Redshirt junior right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi could also be a candidate to leave early for the NFL and be a first-round pick if he declares.

Four weeks into the NFL season, it’s starting to become more clear which NFL teams are contenders or pretenders, and what teams are going to need to add in the 2014 NFL draft. While there are still more than seven months for changes to take place, college football’s best players are starting to make their cases to be first-round draft selections nearly halfway through the college football season.

One reason why I’m updating my mock draft just two weeks after releasing my first mock of the season: the Cleveland Browns’ acquisition of the Indianapolis Colts’ first-round pick in exchange for running back Trent Richardson. That trade, along with some teams winning or struggling more than anticipated, has led to significant changes from Mock Draft 1.0.

The top two selections and top five players, however, have not changed in these projections.

Texas A&M faced Arkansas in a tough Southeastern Conference matchup on Sept. 28 that turned into a high-scoring affair.

Led by the redshirt sophomore connection of quarterback Johnny Manziel and wide receiver Mike Evans in the passing game, Texas A&M came out victorious 45-33. While Manziel and Evans garnered most of the attention with a solid game, there were many players in the matchup with potential to play on Sundays.
