This story appears in ESPN The Magazines Sept. Brian McCann Jersey . 19 NFL Preview II Issue. Subscribe today!Fast, quick and electric after the catch, a new brand of wide receiver is striking fear into the NFL. With smaller frames and the change-of-direction ability to win in the open field, these cats mesh perfectly in todays offenses. They have the formation flexibility and versatility at the position to win on all three levels of the route tree. They are wild-cards in the offensive game plan and pro defenses are struggling to match up.In 2011, just nine receivers less than 6-foot tall were in the top 50 in receiving yards. However, in 2015, 16 players made the cut. With NFL defenses trending toward longer, taller cornerbacks to counter the Calvin Johnson-type wide receivers, these shorter wideouts are exposing coverages in wide-open offenses.Weve already examined how to build a perfect monsterback, the new hybrid defenders. Heres how to dream up a nightmare wide receiver:Randall Cobb5-10, 192 pounds | Green Bay PackersINSTINCTS: Cobb can run inside routes from the slot, bump outside and even align at running back, so the Packers can take advantage of his evasive instincts. Last season he averaged 5.5 yards after the catch, and he has rushed for more than 300 in his career, at 7.6 yards per attempt.Odell Beckham Jr.5-11, 198 pounds | New York GiantsBALL SKILLS: Beckham ranked third in the NFL last season with 96.7 YPG receiving and had 13 TDs. But its his ball skills that stand out. This guy can -- and does -- catch anything. Hes an electric talent with the ability to change games.Julian Edelman5-10, 200 pounds | New England PatriotsTOUGHNESS: Edelman owns the underneath passing tree, using option routes, inside breaking cuts and quick outs to move the sticks. A smooth route runner with toughness in traffic, Edelman caught 61 passes last season in just nine games, with 37 receptions going for first downs.?Brandin Cooks5-10, 189 pounds | New Orleans SaintsSPEED: Cooks is lightning in a bottle. He has top-end speed to test any secondary and an incredible burst once he catches the ball. With 13.5 yards per reception in 2015, he is a vertical threat for the Saints and causes matchup problems all over the field.?Doug Baldwin5-10, 192 pounds | Seattle SeahawksHEART: Baldwin is a physical, ultra-competitive player with the route-running skills to create space. The former undrafted free agent tore up the league during the second half of the 2015 season, finishing with an NFL-best 14 TDs along with 1,069 yards receiving.?Golden Tate5-10, 198 pounds | Detroit LionsCHANGE OF DIRECTION: Tate turns into a running back after the catch with his smooth cutbacks, dekes and double dekes; its fun to watch defenders miss. But Tate is physical on contact, too. In 2015, he averaged 5.8 yards after the catch. You dont want to see this guy in the open field. Hes flat-out nasty.?Antonio Brown5-10, 181 pounds | Pittsburgh SteelersROUTE-RUNNING: The top route runner in the NFL, Brown puts on a clinic at the break point. Its all there: footwork, acceleration out of cuts and consistent separation back to the football. Over the past two seasons, he has produced 265 receptions -- the most in a two-year span.?ROOKIE SPEEDSTERS: THE REINFORCEMENTSSterling Shepard5-10, 194 pounds | New York GiantsScouts love Shepards polished routes at Oklahoma. Last season he averaged 99.1 YPG and had 11 TDs. He has the speed (4.48 seconds in the 40) and footwork to produce immediately working opposite Beckham.?Braxton Miller6-1, 204 pounds | Houston TexansWith one year of WR experience, Miller is still raw but stands out with his athleticism, lateral speed and versatility to align at multiple positions. The former Ohio State QB averaged 6.6 yards after the catch last season.Corey Coleman5-11, 185 pounds | Cleveland BrownsAt Baylor in 15, Coleman led the nation with 20 TDs and averaged 18.4 yards per catch. Hell have to develop his route-running, but he has deep speed and the acceleration to run through a secondary after the catch.Will Fuller6-1, 172 pounds | Houston TexansWith 4.32 speed and slick route-running, Fuller can straight fly. Last year at Notre Dame, he produced 20.3 yards per catch with 14 TDs. Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins make for a nice combo on the outside for the Texans. Evan Gattis Jersey . Aaron Harrison scored a 22 points for Kentucky (6-1), which has won four in a row following a Nov. 12 loss to current No. 1 Michigan State. Julius Randle overcame a scoreless first half and added his sixth double-double in as many games with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

The Bruins, who won the Stanley Cup in 2011, were almost eliminated by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round. Midway through the third period, the Bruins trailed 4-1 and seemed destined to waste a 3-1 series lead when Nathan Horton scored to breathe life into the TD Bank Garden. With less than two minutes remaining and the goalie pulled, the Bruins scored twice more to force overtime and then completed the comeback early in the extra frame.
