  1. D.K. Metcalf**, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 228. Arm: 34.88. Hand: 9.88.
    40 Time: 4.33. Three Cone: 7.38.
    Bench: 27. Vertical: 40.5. Broad: 11-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    4/23/19: Metcalf was the talk of the Friday sessions of the combine after he ripped off a devastating 40-yard dash in 4.33 seconds. On top of showing an elite combination of size and speed, the sculpted wideout did well in the field drills, catching the ball and showing off better-than-expected route-running. After his phenomenal workout, Metcalf looks like a secure first-round pick despite coming off a season-ending neck injury and not having much development in his route-running from college.

    In 2018, Metcalf went out for the year with a neck injury after seven games. Prior to that, he was playing well, exploiting a lot of man coverage with teams focused on stopping A.J. Brown. Metcalf totaled 26 receptions for 569 yards and five touchdowns on the season. The big wideout has mismatch size and should be a red-zone weapon for the NFL. He should have returned to Ole Miss for 2019, but he decided to enter the 2019 NFL Draft. His medical exam and his route-running are going to be very important for his draft grade.

    Metcalf is a love/hate prospect. Some team sources think he could be drafted in the No. 15-25 range, but others have him in Round 4 and don't think he has enough change-of-direction quickness and agility to be effective in the NFL.




  2. Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 205. Arm: 32.88. Hand: 9.75.
    40 Time: 4.31.
    Bench: 11. Vertical: 40. Broad: 11-3.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    4/23/19: It was widely known in the scouting community that Campbell was extremely fast and a superb athlete. He then put that on display at the combine with a tremendous 40 time of 4.31 seconds. What was just as important was Campbell looking good at catching passes in the field drills because there are concerns about his hands. In speaking with a general manager after the wide receiver workout, they said Campbell was one of the most impressive players and really helped himself.

    Campbell recorded 90 receptions for 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2018. He produced some big, clutch plays for the Buckeyes in 2018. Campbell is an excellent athlete with explosive speed and is a threat to go the distance any time he touches the ball. The biggest concerns for Campbell are his hands and dropped passes.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Campbell checks in at 6-foot, 205 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in blistering 4.35 seconds. His arms measure at 32.38 inches, his hands at 9.63 inches, plus he has a 75.38-inch wing span.

    Campbell has shown that he is an explosive play-maker, but his receiving production has been held back by Ohio State struggling to pass the ball. In 2017, he totaled 40 receptions for 584 yards and three touchdowns. He dropped some passes, but Campbell never could get in any groove or consistency as a receiver because J.T. Barrett had such limitations throwing the ball.

    Campbell made only 13 receptions for 121 yards in 2016, but sources from multiple teams had told me that Campbell has big-time ability and they believe he can break out. They also think Campbell could have No. 1 receiver mismatch talent against pro receivers. He probably will take on a bigger role for Ohio State in 2018.


  3. Marquise Brown*, WR, Oklahoma
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 166. Arm: 30.50. Hand: 9.00.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.35.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Brown totaled 75 receptions for 1,318 yards and 10 touchdowns. There is no doubt that Brown is explosive and has devastating speed that makes him a threat to score on any touch of the football. A Lisfranc injury caused Brown to miss out on the combine. He could be a late first-round or second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

    For the NFL, sources feel that Brown is similar to T.Y. Hilton or Will Fuller. Brown catches the ball better than Fuller with more yards-after-the-catch skills than the Texans speedster, but Fuller is a better route-runner than Brown. Brown is not as good of a make-you-miss receiver as the Chiefs' Tyreek Hill. Brown also is very undersized. Some teams graded him on Day 2 and think he should go there, but they also believe that a team might take him in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Brown checks in at 5-foot-11, 160 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.35 seconds, a very fast time.

    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.


  4. A.J. Brown*, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 226. Arm: 32.88. Hand: 9.75.
    40 Time: 4.49.
    Bench: 19. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 10-0.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    4/23/19: Team sources said Brown really helped himself at the combine, running faster than expected in the 40-yard dash. That was a huge time for him because teams had concerns about him having enough speed for the NFL.

    In 2018, Brown totaled 85 receptions for 1,320 yards and six scores on the year. He played well, showing his speed, strength, and run-after-the-catch skills. Brown would fit best in a West Coast offense using his route-running and yards-after-the-catch - YAC - skills to hurt defenses in the short to intermediate part of the field.

    8/28/18: 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.




  5. Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 214. Arm: 32.50. Hand: 10.13.
    40 Time: 4.48. Three Cone: 7.03.
    Bench: 15. Vertical: 39. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    4/23/19: Samuel totaled 62 receptions for 882 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2018. He then was excellent at the Senior Bowl, doing very well in all three practices by showing the quickness and route-running to consistently generate separation. He also displayed the ability to catch with his hands and avoided some of the drops from body catches that other receivers had. Samuel then had a good showing at the combine.

    For the NFL, Samuel could be a solid No. 2 or 3 receiver. He could work out of the slot or line up on the outside. With his quickness and athleticism, Samuel is tough to cover. He has a running back build which hurts him somewhat, but he does bring added value with special teams returning skills. During the 2019 NFL Draft, Samuel could be a good value on the second day.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Samuel checks in at 6-foot, 208 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.55 seconds.

    Some team sources are extremely excited about Samuel and feel he has shown some early-round potential. They love the explosive speed and play-making ability that he showcased in 2017. However, Samuel has to stay healthy and produce in 2018 in order to be an early-rounder.

    Samuel had 15 receptions for 250 yards and three touchdowns across the first three games of 2017, but in the third contest, he broke a bone in his left leg. Samuel did not play the rest of the season. The junior got 2017 started in great fashion against N.C. State. It started right away as he took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown. Samuel added another kick return for a touchdown in the next game. Samuel had 59 receptions for 783 yards and a touchdown in 2016.


  6. N'Keal Harry*, WR, Arizona State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 228. Arm: 33.00. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.53.
    Bench: 27. Vertical: 38.5. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Harry totaled 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns. He declared for the 2019 NFL Draft after the regular season. Harry then had a decent 40 time at the combine.

    Team sources say that Harry is not real twitchy or explosive. They worry about how he is not fast in and out of breaks and don't see suddenness. Some sources said that Harry reminded them of Ole Miss wideout Laquon Treadwell, who is currently headed toward bust status for the Vikings. Some other sources say they are grading Harry on the second day of the 2019 NFL Draft and feel he is akin to Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Devin Funchess. One team source said they originally planned on grading Harry in Round 2, but were lowering him to the third round.

    8/28/18: Harry had strong 2017 season for the Sun Devils, snatching 73 passes for 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns. The big question for Harry will be if he has enough speed to separate from pro-caliber cornerbacks. He had 58 catches for 659 yards and five scores as a freshman.


  7. Riley Ridley*, WR, Georgia
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 199. Arm: 32.63. Hand: 10.25.
    40 Time: 4.58. Three Cone: 7.22.
    Bench: 13. Vertical: 30.5. Broad: 10-4.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    4/23/19: Ridley had 44 catches for 570 yards and nine touchdowns in 2018. He should have returned to Georgia for his senior year if he wanted to be a first-round pick. A lot of evaluators like Ridley, although his combine 40 was slower than expected. Still, a number of team sources have said they like Ridley's skill set and polish. I've heard from some that they graded Ridley on Day 2 and know some teams have him in the mix for their second-round pick.

    8/28/18: Ridley came on strong for Georgia in 2017 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.


  8. Hakeem Butler*, WR, Iowa State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 227. Arm: 35.25. Hand: 10.75.
    40 Time: 4.48.
    Bench: 18. Vertical: 36. Broad: 10-8.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    4/23/19: There have been some projections of Iowa State wide receiver Hakeem Butler as a first-round pick by some of the big names in the draft media. However after surveying team sources at seven different teams, none of them had Butler graded as a first-round pick. They all expected him to go on the second day of the 2019 NFL Draft. "[Butler is] being overrated by the media," said one director of college scouting. The highest grade among those seven teams was a late second-round grade. Others thought he could go in middle of to late in Day 2, but many had third-round grades on Butler.

    Butler is a big receiver who presents mismatch size for the NFL. He had 60 receptions for 1,318 yards and nine touchdowns in 2018. It was a big jump over his sophomore year when he recorded 41 catches for 697 yards and seven scores. At the combine, Butler ran well, putting up a 40 time that will help him.




  9. Kelvin Harmon, WR, N.C. State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 221. Arm: 32.50. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.60. Three Cone: 7.15.
    Bench: 18. Vertical: 32.5. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    4/23/19: Harmon had 81 receptions for 1,186 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018. He is a a good run-after-the-catch receiver with toughness and generally reliable hands, plus he runs quality routes. Teams had speed concerns about Harmon, which were validated with a slow 40 time at the combine.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Harmon checks in at 6-foot-2, 218 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.55 seconds. He also has 32.5-inch arms, 8.88-inch hands, and with a 75.5-inch wing span, per this data.

    Harmon made a lot of clutch catches and was a good receiver for Ryan Finley during the 2017 season. He totaled 69 receptions for 1,017 yards with four touchdowns. He is a thick receiver who has nice hands and runs quality routes. He is more of a possessional Z - flanker - receiver for the NFL.


  10. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, WR, Stanford
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 225. Arm: 33.25. Hand: 9.50.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    4/23/19: Arcega-Whiteside is a big receiver who has speed issues, but he also has mismatch size and is very adept at winning 50-50 passes. The senior totaled 63 catches for 1,059 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2018. As a junior, he recorded 48 receptions for 781 yards and nine touchdowns. One team source said they felt that Arcega-Whiteside was a poor-man's Mike Evans. Arcega-Whiteside did not work out at the combine.


  11. Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 220. Arm: 33.50. Hand: 9.88.
    40 Time: 4.42. Three Cone: 6.77.
    Bench: 12. Vertical: 43.5. Broad: 11-8.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    4/23/19: Boykin is a big receiver who presents a size mismatch against NFL defensive backs. He will have to bully them around and make catches over them in the NFL, where separating from them could be an issue. In 2018, Boykin caught 59 passes for 872 yards with eight touchdowns. It was a breakout year for the senior, who had recorded 12 receptions for 253 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. Boykin needed fast times in the leadup to the draft in order to improve his grade, and he got off to a great start with a fast 40 at the combine.


  12. Andy Isabella, WR, Massachusetts
    Height: 5-8. Weight: 188. Arm: 29.75. Hand: 8.38.
    40 Time: 4.31. Three Cone: 6.95.
    Bench: 15. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 10-1.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    4/23/19: Isabella was a productive receiver for UMass over the past two seasons, and that steady play earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl. In 2018, Isabella caught 102 passes for 1,698 yards with 13 touchdowns. He had 65 catches for 1,020 yards and 10 scores as a junior. For the NFL, Isabella projects as a slot receiver. He had a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl.




  13. Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 201. Arm: 33.25. Hand: 9.75.
    40 Time: 4.39.
    Bench: 15. Vertical: 43.5. Broad: 11-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    4/23/19: Over 2018, Hall made 37 receptions for 828 yards and six touchdowns. He also missed a lot of time while dealing with injuries. However, sources say there are questions about Hall's personal makeup, including his toughness and willingness to play at less than 100 percent. But they do like his combination of speed and size as he has a first-round skill set. Sources say that Hall has a sports hernia, and that hurts where he is being valued. His future team has to decide whether he misses practice and plays through the injury with pain, something he has struggled to do, or has surgery and goes out for some time. All of that being said, Hall has a first-round combination of speed and size.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Hall checks in at 6-foot-1, 196 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.40 seconds. His arms measure at 33.5 inches, his hands at 9.5 inches, and his wing span at 80.38 inches.

    Hall was a big-play threat for Missouri in 2017, as his speed to stretch the field was a real problem for defenses. He averaged 25 yards per reception with 817 yards and eight touchdowns coming on only 33 catches. Sources say Hall has motivation issues and needs to improve his hands due to his problem with dropped passes. That being said, they said he is very fast and there is no doubt he can run.


  14. Gary Jennings, WR, West Virginia
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 214. Arm: 33.00. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.42. Three Cone: 7.32.
    Bench: 20. Vertical: 37. Broad: 10-7.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Jennings caught 54 passes for 917 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has some speed to go with decent size. Will Grier struggled in Mobile at the Senior Bowl, but his teammate Jennings had a strong week of practice. He showed some speed to get vertical and challenge secondaries in the deep part of the field. Perhaps because fellow Mountaineer wideout David Sills has gotten more attention, Jennings has been somewhat of a sleeper in the draft process. In Mobile, he showed could be a valuable mid-round pick with vertical speed for the next level. Jennings confirmed that speed at the combine.

    8/28/18: With quarterback Will Grier and No. 1 receiver David Sills, Jennings was the other key component of the Mountaineers' point-machine offense in 2017. Jennings caught 94 passes for 1,030 yards and one touchdown on the season. He was phenomenal in the 2017 opener against Virginia Tech, but he didn't approach that level in other games. Jennings could have a big 2018 season with Grier and Sills returning.


  15. David Sills, WR, West Virginia
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 211. Arm: 32.00. Hand: 8.88.
    40 Time: 4.57. Three Cone: 6.97.
    Bench: 14. Vertical: 37.5. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    4/23/19: Sills caught 65 passes for 986 yards and 15 touchdowns in 2018. He is a big receiver who is a jump-ball, 50-50 target, but he will struggle to separate in the NFL. Sills had a solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl and a respectable performance at the combine.

    8/28/18: Sills was very productive in 2017 with 60 receptions for 980 yards with 18 touchdowns. He has mismatch size and runs well enough to challenge college defenses downfield. Sills is an excellent red-zone weapon with his size, hands, and leaping ability. The big question will be if he is fast enough to separate from NFL-caliber corners. Speed issues could push him lower.


  16. Terry McLaurin, WR, Ohio State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 208. Arm: 32.00. Hand: 9.13.
    40 Time: 4.35. Three Cone: 7.01.
    Bench: 18. Vertical: 37.5. Broad: 10-5.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    4/23/19: At the combine, McLaurin continued his strong postseason by running a fast 40 time and looking good in the field drills. He previously had an excellent week of practice at the Senior Bowl. He was quick to get separation while showing excellent hands and good route-running.

    McLaurin is a chippy player who gets physical with defenders and plays with a gritty style. As a senior, he caught 35 passes for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns. His production would have been higher at most other schools, but at Ohio State, he was splitting targets with Parris Campbell and K.J. Hill. In 2017, McLaurin hauled in 29 catches for 436 yards. McLaurin could be a really nice No. 2 receiver in the NFL.


  17. Hunter Renfrow, WR, Clemson
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 184. Arm: 29.00. Hand: 7.75.
    40 Time: 4.59. Three Cone: 6.80.
    Bench: 7. Vertical: 35. Broad: 9-8.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    4/23/19: Renfrow totaled 47 catches for 534 yards and a touchdown in 2018. At the Senior Bowl, Renfrow showed that he can be a contributing slot receiver in the NFL and is very polished. He has enough quickness to be competitive and has excellent hands with polished route-running.

    8/28/18: Renfrow is undersized for the NFL, but he is still a dangerous slot receiver. He is a quick wideout who has good hands and runs good routes. Renfrow had 55 receptions for 571 yards and three touchdowns in 2017. As a sophomore, he recorded 44 catches for 495 yards and six touchdowns, including the winning score in the National Championship to beat Alabama. As a freshman, he totaled 33 catches for 492 yards and five scores. Renfrow always seems to come up big in crunch time.




  18. Alex Wesley, WR, Northern Colorado
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 190. Arm: 31.50. Hand: 9.00.
    40 Time: 4.45. Three Cone: 7.40.
    Bench: 13. Vertical: 38.5. Broad: 10-5.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    4/23/19: The 2019 NFL Draft is not very strong at the wide receiver position, so some under-the-radar wideouts could move up in the leadup to the 2019 NFL Draft. Wesley has the potential to be one of those players after recording 57 reception for 1,050 yards and four touchdowns as a senior. He had 55 catches for 1,010 yards and six scores in 2017. Wesley earned an invitation to the Senior Bowl and had a strong enough week of practice. Some team sources felt that Wesley improved his draft grade in Mobile. He ran well at the combine.


  19. Terry Godwin, WR, Georgia
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 184. Arm: 30.00. Hand: 9.38.
    40 Time: 4.55. Three Cone: 6.96.
    Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    4/23/19: Godwin was one of the best players at the East-West Shrine. He ate up the cornerbacks in the one-on-ones as they were incapable of running with him. Godwin is a dangerous route-runner who explodes out of his breaks, which generates separation. After gaining a step, his speed is too much to handle as he can pull away from corners.

    In the NFL, Godwin could be a good slot receiver using speed and route-running to get quick separation. With his strong performance through the East-West practices, Godwin could have turned himself into a mid-round prospect in the 2019 NFL Draft. Godwin sat out Georgia's first game of 2018, but had 23 catches for 385 yards and three touchdowns after that.

    8/28/18: In 2017, Godwin caught 29 passes for 540 yards and six touchdowns. He contributed some as a freshman (35-379-2) and sophomore (38-397-0). Georgia lost a lot of backfield talent and wideouts to the NFL, so Godwin could produce more as a senior.


  20. Dillon Mitchell*, WR, Oregon
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 197. Arm: 31.50. Hand: 9.00.
    40 Time: 4.46.
    Bench: 12. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    4/23/19: Mitchell had a productive junior season as one of the top targets for Ducks quarterback Justin Herbert. In 2018, Mitchell caught 75 passes for 1,184 yards with 10 touchdowns. It was a big jump over his sophomore year when he had 42 receptions for 517 yards and four scores. Mitchell helped himself with a solid combine performance.


  21. DeMarkus Lodge, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 202. Arm: 33.13. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.55. Three Cone: 7.06.
    Bench: 11. Vertical: 33.5. Broad: 9-11.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    4/23/19: Lodge goes under the radar because of teammates A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf being top receiver prospects, but Lodge is a quality prospect in his own right. He totaled 65 receptions for 877 yards and four touchdowns in 2018. He had some bad drops against LSU. As a junior, Lodge totaled 41 receptions for 698 yards and seven touchdowns.

    Lodge has decent size to him with some quickness and run-after-the-catch skills. Some team sources say that they like Lodge's skill set and think he has the potential to be a role player. He had a quality week of practice at the East-West Shrine.


  22. Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 226. Arm: 32.00. Hand: 10.25.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Bench: 23.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.

    4/23/19: Hurd is a big receiver who lacks speed for the NFL. In 2018, he totaled 69 receptions for 946 yards with four touchdowns. His best season of play came as a running back in Tennessee when he averaged 8.6 yards per carry for 1,288 yards and 12 touchdowns back in 2015. He was more special as a power runner than being a big, slow wide receiver.


  23. Jon'Vea Johnson, WR, Toledo
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.42.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.

    4/23/19: Johnson put together 32 receptions for 660 yards and nine touchdowns for 2018. He didn't participate in the combine.

    8/28/18: Johnson is the third in a trio of receiver prospects for the NFL from Toledo this year. According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Johnson checks in at 6-foot, 188 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in a fast 4.42 seconds. Advance scouts have Johnson grading out the highest among the Toledo receivers, having him with first- through fourth-round potential for the 2019 NFL Draft. In 2017, Johnson caught 41 passes for 675 yards and five touchdowns.


  24. Jaylen Smith, WR, Louisville
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 219. Arm: 33.63. Hand: 8.38.
    40 Time: 4.47. Three Cone: 7.55.
    Bench: 14. Vertical: 34.5. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: For 2018, Smith totaled 36 catches for 550 yards and one touchdown. He was shut down by Alabama. Smith ran well at the combine.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Smith checks in at 6-foot-1, 227 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.57 seconds. His measurements include 33.88-inch arms, 9.63-inch hands, and a 79.13-inch wing span.

    Some of the reasons Lamar Jackson slid in the 2018 NFL Draft were accuracy issues and his less-than-stellar completion percentage. He had some awful receivers, however, and in every game, they dropped well-thrown passes. Smith was the exception for Jackson, serving as his most reliable wideout. Smith had some drops as well, but he did produce some big plays while catching 53 passes for 873 yards and six touchdowns. The big receiver contributed as a sophomore (27-599-6) and freshman (29-376-1) too. As a senior, Smith needs to be more consistent with his route-running and hands.


  25. Jakobi Meyers, WR, N.C. State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 203. Arm: 32.13. Hand: 9.63.
    40 Time: 4.63. Three Cone: 7.07.
    Bench: 13. Vertical: 37. Broad: 9-10.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Meyers turned in a strong senior year that earned him an invitation to the Senior Bowl. He totaled 92 receptions for 1,047 yards and four touchdowns for 2018. As a junior, Meyers had 63 catches for 727 yards and five scores. Meyers ran slow times at the combine.


  26. Jamarius Way, WR, South Alabama
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 215. Arm: 33.00. Hand: 10.25.
    40 Time: 4.63.
    Bench: 16. Vertical: 32.5. Broad: 9-11.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Way recorded 61 catches for 855 yards and eight touchdowns. He had a slow 40 time at the combine.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Way checks in at 6-foot-3, 212 pounds. He is said to run the 40 in 4.50 seconds. His arms measure at 32.63 inches, his hand are 9.63 inches, and is wing span is 75.5 inches. Advance scouts have Way grading out as having first- through fourth-round potential for the 2019 NFL Draft. In 2017, Way caught 47 passes for 762 yards and three touchdowns.


  27. Tyre Brady, WR, Marshall
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 211. Arm: 33.75. Hand: 10.00.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Bench: 12. Vertical: 32. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Brady recorded 71 catches for 1,002 yards and nine touchdowns in 2018. At the Senior Bowl, he had a decent week, but was not overly impressive.

    8/28/18: Brady graded out as having first- through fourth-round potential by advance NFL scouts. They have him checking in at 6-foot-2, 201 pounds with a 4.57-second time in the 40-yard dash. He also has 33.5-inch arms, 9.63-inch hands, and a wing span of 79.13 inches. In 2017, Brady put together a breakout junior year of 71 receptions for 1,054 yards and nine touchdowns.


  28. Travis Fulgham, WR, Old Dominion
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215. Arm: 34.75. Hand: 9.38.
    40 Time: 4.58.
    Bench: 15. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 10-6.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Oshane Ximines was the Old Dominion player who created some draft buzz entering the 2018 season, but as scouts went to watch him, Fulgham helped himself to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. He then had a decent week of practice in Mobile.

    Fulgham recorded 63 catches for 1,083 yards with nine touchdowns as a senior. That was a huge jump in production over his junior (30-394-1) and sophomore seasons (29-478-8). Fulgham has good size with a developed frame.


  29. Anthony Johnson, WR, Buffalo
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 209. Arm: 31.38. Hand: 9.00.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56. Three Cone: 7.12.
    Bench: 18. Vertical: 32.5. Broad: 10-2.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Johnson had 57 catches for 1,011 yards and 11 touchdowns. He then was okay at the Senior Bowl.

    8/28/18: Johnson has decent size to him and put together an impressive 2017 season with 76 receptions for 1,356 yards with 14 touchdowns. Johnson redshirted at Buffalo in 2016, and prior to that, he played two seasons at the community college level.


  30. Stanley Morgan, WR, Nebraska
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 202. Arm: 32.38. Hand: 9.88.
    40 Time: 4.53. Three Cone: 6.78.
    Bench: 14. Vertical: 38.5. Broad: 10-5.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Morgan totaled 70 receptions for 1,004 yards and seven touchdowns.

    8/28/18: Morgan went under the radar to a degree in 2017, but he still played really well, hauling in 61 passes for 986 yards and 10 touchdowns. That came after modest production in his sophomore (33-453-2) and freshman (25-304-3) seasons. Morgan will have to show the speed to separate to be an early-rounder.


  31. Jazz Ferguson*, WR, Northwestern State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 227. Arm: 34.25. Hand: 9.25.
    40 Time: 4.45. Three Cone: 7.25.
    Bench: 8. Vertical: 37. Broad: 10-3.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Ferguson is a big receiver coming from a small school, so he needed to put up fast times in the leadup to the 2019 NFL Draft to help his draft stock. He got off to a good start by running fast at the combine. In 2018, Ferguson had 66 receptions for 1,117 yards and 13 touchdowns.


  32. Mecole Hardman, WR, Georgia
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 187. Arm: 30.25. Hand: 9.00.
    40 Time: 4.33.
    Bench: 17. Vertical: 36.5. Broad: 9-11.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Hardman's best value for the NFL comes as a returner who also can contribute some as a small wide receiver. As a senior, Hardman totaled 34 receptions for 532 yards and seven touchdowns.


  33. Lil'Jordan Humphrey*, WR, Texas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 210. Arm: 32.75. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.75. Three Cone: 7.09.
    Bench: 13. Vertical: 33.5. Broad: 9-11.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Humphrey is a gritty receiver who is dangerous for yards after the catch. He is a fighter with some junk-yard dog in him who will run through tackles and get physical with cornerbacks. However, Humphrey is slow for the NFL. He can't run at all and will really struggle to separate from pro cornerbacks. That was given more proof at the combine, where he ran very slowly in the 40.

    Team sources say they think Humphrey has real upside. They like that he is a fighter and competitor who is good for yards after the catch. Humphrey will use his size to go up and win on contested catches. He is a heavier receiver and put together well. However, Humphrey does have some serious off-the-field concerns. Humphrey totaled 86 receptions for 1,176 yards and nine touchdowns over 2018. As a sophomore, he totaled 37 catches for 431 yards and one touchdown.


  34. Ventell Bryant, WR, Temple
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Bryant caught 51 receptions for 690 yards and three touchdowns during 2018.

    8/28/18: As a freshman, Bryant had a solid debut for Temple (39-579-3) before an impressive sophomore season in which he caught 54 passes for 895 yards and four touchdowns. He missed three games as a junior, but still totaled just 273 yards on 28 receptions with zero touchdowns.


  35. KeeSean Johnson, WR, Fresno State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 201. Arm: 32.00. Hand: 9.50.
    40 Time: 4.60. Three Cone: 7.28.
    Bench: 14. Vertical: 30. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Johnson totaled 95 receptions for 1,340 yards and eight touchdowns.

    8/28/18: Johnson has been a solid receiver for Fresno State over the past three years, putting up respectable production as a junior (69-918-8) and sophomore (66-773-6). A lack of speed is the concern with Johnson.


  36. Antoine Wesley, WR, Texas Tech
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 206. Arm: 34.00. Hand: 9.75.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.63. Three Cone: 7.07.
    Bench: 6. Vertical: 37. Broad: 9-9.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Wesley was one of the breakout players of 2018. As a sophomore in 2017, he had only 10 receptions for 137 yards, but as a junior, he exploded for 1,410 yards and nine touchdowns on 88 receptions. He tore up the weak Big XII and has size-mismatch skills for the NFL. Teams have serious speed concerns with him however. In speaking with team sources, Wesley did enough as a junior to make himself draftable, and they think he could be a late-round pick.


  37. Diontae Johnson*, WR, Toledo
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 183. Arm: 30.75. Hand: 9.00.
    40 Time: 4.53. Three Cone: 7.09.
    Bench: 15. Vertical: 33.5. Broad: 10-3.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Johnson had 49 catches for 761 yards and eight touchdowns in 2018. He decided to enter the 2019 NFL Draft. Johnson would fit best as a slot receiver.

    8/28/18: In 2017, Johnson took over with Cody Thompson out with an injury for most of the season and broke out for Toledo. The sophomore caught 72 passes for 1,257 yards and 13 touchdowns. He is a smaller slot receiver candidate for the NFL.


  38. John Ursua*, WR, Hawaii
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 175.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Ursua is an undersized slot receiver candidate for the NFL. The junior caught 89 passes for 1,343 yards with 16 touchdowns in 2018. Ursua produced as a sophomore (47-667-5) and freshman (53-652-3).


  39. Anthony Ratliff-Williams, WR, North Carolina
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Ratliff-Williams caught 42 passes for 689 yards and two touchdowns in 2018. In 2017, he had 35 receptions for 630 yards and six touchdowns.


  40. Preston Williams*, WR, Colorado State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 211.
    40 Time: 4.55.
    Vertical: 31.5. Broad: 9-8.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Williams started out his collegiate career at Tennessee before landing at Colorado State. He did not get much playing time with the Volunteers, but he made the most of his time with Colorado State, recording 96 catches for 1,345 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2018.


  41. Deondre Douglas, WR, Troy
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Douglas totaled 48 receptions for 472 yards and seven touchdowns in 2018.

    8/28/18: Douglas made 48 catches in 2017 for 628 yards and four touchdowns. He contributed more production as a sophomore (60-740-6).


  42. James Gardner, WR, Miami (Ohio)
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 216.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Gardner had 12 receptions for 157 yards. He missed nine games with an injury.

    8/28/18: Garner is a tall receiver who has some strength to his frame. He totaled 927 yards on 47 receptions with 11 touchdowns as a junior. His 19.7 yards-per-reception average is an impressive number for a big wideout. As a sophomore, he had 45 catches for 750 yards and six scores.


  43. Cody Thompson, WR, Toledo
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205. Arm: 31.00. Hand: 9.38.
    40 Time: 4.57. Three Cone: 6.87.
    Bench: 19. Vertical: 38.5. Broad: 9-11.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: Thompson recorded 48 receptions for 647 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018.

    8/28/18: Thompson is part of a talented trio of college receivers for Toledo, which should field another potent offense. He missed most of his senior year with an injury and was granted a fifth year of eligibility. His junior year saw him catch 64 passes for 1,269 yards and 11 touchdowns.


  44. Johnny Dixon, WR, Ohio State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 201. Arm: 30.25. Hand: 9.63.
    40 Time: 4.41.
    Bench: 16. Vertical: 37.5. Broad: 10-0.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    4/23/19: In 2018, Dixon totaled 42 receptions for 669 yards and eight touchdowns.

    8/28/18: In 2017, Dixon caught only 18 passes for 422 yards, but in those receptions, he found eight touchdowns. Dixon could fit as a slot receiver candidate for the NFL.


  45. Greg Dortch, WR, Wake Forest
    Height: 5-7. Weight: 173. Arm: 29.25. Hand: 9.25.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.

    4/23/19: Dortch is another undersized receiver who would be fortunate to be drafted. As a senior, he recorded 89 receptions for 1,078 yards with eight touchdowns. The previous season saw Dortch average 13.6 yard per reception. He also has the ability to contribute as a returner on special teams.


  46. Jovon Durante*, WR, Florida Atlantic
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 160. Arm: 31.13. Hand: 8.75.
    40 Time: 4.55. Three Cone: 7.00.
    Vertical: 31.5. Broad: 10-0.
    Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.

    4/23/19: Durante notched 65 catches for 873 yards and five touchdowns in 2018. He is very undersized, even for the slot receiver position. In 2017 (35-331-2) and 2016 (24-378-5), he contributed for the Owls.


  47. Tyron Johnson, WR, Oklahoma State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.

    4/23/19: For 2017, Johnson totaled 53 catches in 2018 for 845 yards and seven touchdowns.

    8/28/18: Johnson could explode as a junior with James Washington and Marcell Ateman moving on to the NFL. Johnson flashed at times in 2017, backing those two receivers up, including in a big game against Oklahoma (4-118-2). He totaled 16 receptions for 268 yards and three scores as a sophomore. Johnson is a prospect who easily could rise.
