Compare 2012's wide receiver draft class to past and present NFL pros

I did this thread last year, and I wanted to get your guys' opinion on it again.

Take 2012's most popular wide receivers in this year's draft and predict what kind of career they will have based on a past or present NFL player.

Here are the players I'm interested in...
Justin Blackmon
Michael Floyd
Kendall Wright
Stephen Hill
Alshon Jeffery
Rueben Randle
Mohamed Sanu
Coby Fleener


For example, you could say Coby Fleener will have a career like Jeremy Shockey. Or Justin Blackmon = Greg Jennings.

Just curious... have at it!
Justin Blackmon - Miles Austin
Michael Floyd - Brandon Marshall
Kendall Wright - Jordy Nelson
Stephen Hill - Jacoby Jones
Alshon Jeffery - Mike Williams (SEA)
Rueben Randle - Mike Williams (TB)
Mohamed Sanu - Jason Avant
Coby Fleener - Jacob Tamme
Justin Blackmon - shorter version of Dwayne Bowe
Michael Floyd - Poorman Larry Fitz
Kendall Wright - Titus Young
Stephen Hill - ?
Alshon Jeffery - ?
Rueben Randle - ?
Mohamed Sanu - Marques Colston
Coby Fleener - Faster Kyle Rudolph

kendall wright- santonio holmes

BUMP?

Blackmon - anquan Boldin with better deep speed. Violent player, aggressive And strong. Underrated hands and body control.
Floyd - a similar game to Larry fitz. Big and nimble. Good speed, hands, body control.
Jeffery - a 6'3" Calvin Johnson. Big, long strider with great buildup speed. Is more explosive after the catch than CJ. Has arguably be best hands and body control in the draft.
Fleener - jimmy graham. Not an elite blocker but good enough. Tall, fast and has good hands.
