    7/6/20: Pitts turned into play-maker in 2019, creating mismatches in the passing game. He is too fast for linebackers while being too big for safeties in coverage. For the NFL, Pitts could stand to improve his blocking, but he will get drafted for his receiving ability. In 2019, he hauled in 54 receptions for 649 yards and five touchdowns. Pitts could be improved in 2020 due to having gained experience and to developing more physically

    Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: Wydermyer created a buzz with scouts in 2019 from displaying a good skill with a ton of upside. The Aggies staff raved about Wydermyer to NFL evaluators coming through College Station. That season, he totaled 32 receptions for 447 yards and six touchdowns. Wydermyer has good size to him with speed and athleticism. He could have three-down starting potential for the NFL

    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: After a strong freshman season, Jordan is helping to invigorate Miami as 'tight end U'. The Las Vegas, Nevada product had 32 receptions for 287 yards with four touchdowns in 2018. In 2019, the sophomore recorded 35 catches for 495 yards and two touchdowns. Jordan is capable of producing more, but Miami has been inconsistent at getting him the ball. Jordan is undersized, so getting stronger and working on his blocking will be important for the NFL

    Height: 6-3. Weight: 245.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.7.
    Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: McBride was a receiving weapon for Colorado State in 2019, showing quality route-running and hands. For the NFL, he needs to improve his blocking and could stand to get stronger. However, McBride lacks length and could be limited as a blocker. He would likely fit best in the pros as a "F" movement - receiving - tight end

    Height: 6-5. Weight: 250.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.79.
    Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: Ruckert flashed some ability during his sophomore year and was a nice red-zone contributor for the Buckeyes. With Ohio State losing multiple receivers to the NFL, Ruckert's receiving production could grow in 2020. The junior has the size to be a blocker as well, so the potential is there for Ruckert to become a prospect who is seen as possibly becoming a three-down starter at the next level
