Here's what two NFL Draft analysts had to say about former Ole Miss wide receiver Donte Moncrief one week from the start of the 2014 NFL Draft, set for May 8-10.

ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Mel Kiper, who previously slotted Moncrief to the Indianapolis Colts with 59th overall pick in his "Grade A" draft and previously projected him to the San Diego Chargers with the 57th overall pick in his "Mock Draft 4.0" mentioned Moncrief as one of the 24 biggest "freaks" in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Here's what Kiper had to say about Moncrief:

His route running needs work, but there's nothing more Moncrief can show as an athlete after running 4.40 and leaping 39.5 inches in the vertical, and he put up those numbers as a 6-2 wide receiver weighing in at 221 pounds. It's hard not to bet high on that workout.

Kiper and fellow ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Todd McShay played general manager and went through a three-round mock draft Thursday night. Kiper selected Moncrief for the Minnesota Vikings with a third-round pick (72nd overall).

Here's what Kiper had to say about the pick: 

At this point, the Vikings have addressed a need at QB (Bortles) and in coverage (Joyner), and Moncrief is one of the best athletes in the entire draft, with legit 4.4 speed and great leaping ability in a 6-2, 220-pound frame.

NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock held a two-hour conference call Thursday with reporters. Mayock will unveil his first -- and only -- mock draft in a one-hour special, "Mayock's 2014 Mock Draft, on Wednesday, May 7 at 8 p.m. CT on NFL Network.

Here's what Mayock had to say about Moncrief:

Moncrief is a guy who drops the ball too much and double-catches it a little too much. When I see a wide receiver with drops and double-catches, I get nervous. He has to convince team that he can be a consistent catcher of the football. He's a little bit straight-line fast. He has to learn how to run routes. 

I have him late third round. The West Coast teams will like him because he can be a big, possession-type receiver who can run the slant and throw it into his body. Any of those type of teams that focus on West Coast offense would make a ton of sense for him. I'm hoping that his best football is ahead of him, and he can continue to develop the craft of playing wide receiver.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
