Nate Burleson: Detroit Lions' Kenny Golladay 'next up' for NFL stardom

Rookie wide receivers were by and large a disappointing bunch in 2017.

Cooper Kupp, Juju Smith-Schuster and running back Alvin Kamara were the only rookies who ranked in the top 50 of the NFL in catches, and the three receivers taken in the top 10 " Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross " combined for just 45 receptions all year.

But while early returns were disappointing for the group as a whole, Detroit Lions rookie Kenny Golladay did enough to convince at least one analyst that hes a future star.

Hes a No. 1 wide receiver, CBS and NFL Network analyst Nate Burleson said at the Super Bowl earlier this month. Kenny Golladay is a monster.

Golladay missed five games because of a hamstring injury and caught just 28 passes on the season, but he averaged 17 yards per catch, the sixth most among qualifying players with at least one catch per game.

At 6 feet 4 and 214 pounds, Golladay has the size, strength and speed to be a dominant pass catcher, and the third-round pick out of Northern Illinois was able to make an impact while playing primarily as the Lions No. 3 receiver behind Marvin Jones and Golden Tate.
