WR Jenkins could be first-rounder

Not every player can be a sure first-round selection, but there are plenty of guys out there who could be surprises. Here's a look at the most intriguing prospects right now -- players who might not get the most hype but who could turn out to be great values for the teams that take a chance on them.
Chris Cooley, TE, Utah State (6-3½, 251) | third round
Had a great finish to the year with 10 catches in the Aggies' season finale against Idaho and made a highlight-film grab at Nebraska.
