  1. A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    8/14/18: In 2017, Brown totaled 75 receptions for 1,252 yards and 11 touchdowns despite playing for a bad team that lost its starting quarterback to injury. Brown is a quick receiver who is not a burner with rare speed, but he makes up for it with polish and physicality. Brown is very dangerous with the ball in his hands. He uses his well-built frame to break tackles and is very difficult for a lot of defensive backs to get on the ground. For the NFL, Brown has tremendous yards-after-the-catch potential and could be a great fit in a West Coast offense. He had a strong debut in 2016 with 29 receptions for 412 yards with two touchdowns.






  2. Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 162.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    8/14/18: Brown is a very fast wideout who is a threat to score anytime he catches a pass. As a sophomore, he averaged 19.2 yards per reception for 1,095 yards on 57 catches with seven touchdowns. Brown has a thin frame and needs to get stronger for the NFL, but he is very explosive. If he can maintain his speed while adding weight, he could be a dynamic wide receiver.


  3. Ahmmon Richards, WR, Miami
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-3.

    8/14/18: A hamstring injury limited Richards to just seven games in 2017, and he totaled 24 catches for 439 yards and three touchdown over those appearances. Richards was a play-maker and very impressive in 2016. The freshman totaled 49 receptions for 934 yards and three touchdowns. His downfield speed was illustrated by his average of 19.1 yards per receptions. Richards easily could have produced more in 2016 if Brad Kaaya had played more consistently.


  4. Jerry Jeudy*, WR, Alabama
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 192.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-2.

    8/14/18: NFL scouts who were attending Alabama's practices last fall told me that Jeudy was the next great Crimson Tide receiver to keep the tradition going under Nick Saban that has seen elite receivers like Julio Jones, Amari Cooper and Calvin Ridley dominate the competition. As a freshman, Jeudy totaled 14 receptions for 264 yards and two touchdowns. He was just scratching the surface and could become a star as a sophomore or junior.


  5. Riley Ridley, WR, Georgia
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-3.

    8/14/18: Ridley came on strong for Georgia and had an impressive game against Alabama with six receptions for 82 yards. His production was hurt by Georgia's three-headed monster in the ground game, but Ridley is capable of producing a lot more as an upperclassman.




  6. Collin Johnson*, WR, Texas
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2020): 1-3.

  7. Tyrie Cleveland*, WR, Florida
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

  8. Tyler Vaughns*, WR, USC
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

  9. N'Keal Henry, WR, Arizona State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 216.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.



  10. D.K. Metcalf*, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-3.

  11. Marquez Callaway*, WR, Tennessee
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-4.

  12. Demetris Robertson*, WR, Georgia
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2020): 2-4.

    Height: 6-0. Weight: 198.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2020): 3-5.

  14. Tarik Black, WR, Michigan
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2020): 3-5.



  15. Henry Ruggs III*, WR, Alabama
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.

  16. Nick Westbrook, WR, Indiana

    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2020): 4-6.



  17. J.D. Spielman, WR, Nebraska
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2020): 6-FA.
