  1. Ja’Marr Chase*, WR, LSU
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.40.
    Projected Round (2021): Top-20.

    2/10/20: Chase brokr out in 2019 and was a source of big plays for the Tigers’ offense. On the year, the sophomore averaged 21.2 yards per reception over 84 catches for 1,780 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was the No. 1 receiver for the LSU offense, showing off-game breaking speed, quality route-running, and the ability to pick up yards after the catch. Chase was the best wide receiver in college football in 2019, and there wasn’t a close second. It was a huge jump in production from his freshman season, when he had 23 catches for 313 yards with three scores.




  2. Justyn Ross*, WR, Clemson
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2021): 1.

    2/10/20: Ross played well for Clemson in 2019, although the offense spread the ball around to a variety of play-makers. He totaled 66 receptions for 865 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019. Ross broke out in 2018, showing off a freakish skill set alongside size and speed. While Clemson spread the ball out as well that season, Ross made the most of his receptions, totaling 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on 46 receptions for an average of 21.7 yards per catch. Ross is brimming with upside and looks like he has high first-round potential.


  3. DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 175.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/10/20: In 2019, Smith had 68 receptions for 1,256 yards with 14 touchdowns. He put together a record-setting game of 11 receptions for 274 yards with five touchdowns against Ole Miss.

    Smith went under the radar playing with Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, but he is a good prospect in his own right. Team sources say that of the trio of Alabama receiver prospects eligbile for the 2020 NFL Draft, Smith could have the best hands and was the most consistent down-in-and-down-out. Smith is a tough receiver who has demonstrated quality speed, route-running, and superb ball skills. He also has proven run-after-the-catch skills and is able to get yards after contact and dodge defenders. Smith is superb with his body control along the sideline to adjust to passes and stay in bounds as a runner.


  4. Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.50.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/10/20: Terry recorded 44 receptions for 892 yards and eight scores in 2019. He took a touchdown 75 yards against Boise State. Team sources are high on Terry’s potential with his excellent combination of size and speed. The 6-foot-4, 203-pounder is fast for a big receiver and has athleticism. As a redshirt freshman, Terry had 35 receptions for 744 yards and eight touchdowns. He has the upside and skill set to be an early-round pick.


  5. Seth Williams*, WR, Auburn
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 224.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.

    2/10/20: Williams broke out for Auburn in 2019, making some clutch plays downfield for the Tigers. On the year, the big receiver had 59 receptions for 830 yards and eight touchdowns despite playing with a freshman quarterback. As a freshman, he had 26 catches for 534 yards and five scores. Williams has the upside to produce a huge junior year if the Auburn passing offense makes strides.

    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
