Projected Round (2022): 1.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Ross was out for the 2020 season due to a spinal condition that required surgery, but Clemson was optimistic that Ross would return in 2021. The surgery was said to be over a congenital neck issue, and there was speculation that it could be career-ending.

Ross played well for Clemson in 2019, although the offense spread the ball around to a variety of playmakers. 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.

6/26/21: The Buckeyes had other good receiving talent with more experience in 2019, but Olave became their most dynamic receiver playmaker that season. He was a big-time point producer and looked like he was just getting started. Olave has quality height to him with speed to get downfield. In 2020, he was held back by some injuries, but he still played well, catching 50 passes for 729 yards and seven touchdowns.

Height: 5-10. Weight: 175.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 1-2.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Dotson had an impressive 2020 season, hauling in 52 passes for 884 yards and eight touchdowns over nine games. Even though he does not have special size, he can provide some big plays to his offense with his game-breaking speed and skill at getting vertical. In 2019, he had 27 catches for 488 yards and five touchdowns.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Tee Higgins, Clemson
  • '19 - A.J. Brown, Ole Miss

Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: According to team sources, advance scouts gave Tolbert a high preseason grade. He has shown some serious big-play ability over the past seasons, averaging of 17 yards and 19.3 yards per reception. Tolbert has a nice buzz and could be a riser with a strong season. It would also help him to impress at the Senior Bowl against a higher caliber of competition.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Justin Jefferson, LSU

5. Alabama image John Metchie III, WR, Alabama
Height: 6-0. Weight: 195.
Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Metchie was very good in 2020, producing some huge plays for the Alabama offense. He averaged 18 yards per reception with 782 yards on 44 catches with six touchdowns. Metchie (6-0, 195) could produce a massive 2021 season if he's the No. 1 receiver for the Crimson Tide. With DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle moving on to the NFL, Metchie could be their featured wideout.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Chase Claypool, Notre Dame

6. Georgia image George Pickens*, WR, Georgia
Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.

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

6/26/21: In 2020, Pickens made 36 receptions for 513 yards and six touchdowns. Georgia had inconsistent quarterback play with a changing cast of trigger men, but Pickens flashed despite the lack of continuity in the passing attack. He also played well as a freshman for Georgia, catching 49 passes for 727 yards and eight touchdowns. Pickens has the upside to be better as he gains experience.

Height: 5-10. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.46.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Flowers was impressive in 2020, breaking out for the Eagles. He flashed some in 2019, but was improved a lot as a sophomore. Flowers does not have much size, but he has game-breaking speed and is threat to produce a big play on any reception. He could take off as a junior given a favorable schedule and the blessing of a good quarterback in Phil Jurkovec.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Jalen Reagor, TCU
  • '19 - Hakeem Butler, Iowa State
8. Cincinnati image Alec Pierce*, WR, Cincinnati
Height: 6-3. Weight: 208.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Pierce flashed some big-play ability for the Bearcats over the past two seasons, averageing 19 and 18 yards per catch. With an improving and experienced quarterback in Desmond Ridder, Pierce could be primed for a big 2021 season. He has other quality receivers around him as well. Pierce has a good combination of size and quickness. Showing the ability to separate from good corners could cause him to rise.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Denzel Mims, Baylor
  • '19 - Kelvin Harmon, N.C. State
9. USC image Drake London**, WR, USC
Height: 6-5. Weight: 210.
Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
Projected Round (2022): 2-3.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: London was on a crowded depth chart in 2019 and 2020, but he still showed some intriguing ability. He is a big receiver who is a physical runner after the catch and is very difficult for defensive backs to tackle. London could be poised for a huge 2021 season if he is the No. 1 receiver for Kedon Slovis. After losing Michael Pittman Jr. and Amon-Ra St. Brown over the last two drafts, London should be the top target for the Trojans. He could explode in 2021 with his mismatch size and strength.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - K.J. Hamler, Penn State
  • '19 - J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford
10. Northern Iowa image Isaiah Weston*, WR, Northern Iowa
Height: 6-4. Weight: 210.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Weston produced well in 2019, showing mismatch ability with his tall height, length, and decent quickness. He averaged a staggering 25 yards per reception while displaying dangerous-point producing ability. Weston missed the 2018 season with an injury. Playing well at the Senior Bowl and running fast at the combine would help Weston.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Laviska Shenault, Colorado
  • '19 - Miles Boykin, Notre Dame
11. Ohio State image Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
Height: 5-11. Weight: 186.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Wilson was a big-play weapon for Ohio State in 2020. The sophomore had 43 receptions for 723 yards and six touchdowns on the year. After only four games, Wilson surpassed his freshman year production (30-432-5), and he seemed to become Justin Fields' most trusted receiver during the 2020 season. Wilson has speed, route-running, and the ability to pick up yards after the catch.

Projected 40 Time: 4.47.
Projected Round (2022): 2-4.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: The Cowboys have had a nice run of receiver prospects under Mike Gundy, and that should continue with Johnson. While he has yet to put together a big season in terms of production, Johnson impressed the advance scouts enough to receive a favorable projection heading into the 2021 season. He could be poised for a big year as the No. 1 receiver to replace Tylan Wallace.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Michael Pittman Jr., USC

Height: 6-2. Weight: 201.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 3-4.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Dixon has been a productive player over the past three seasons, showing mismatch size with some quickness. He is a red-zone weapon and point producer who has provided steady play for the Colonels. Dixon could help himself by displaying the the speed to separate against top competition, which may mean needing to snag an invitation to an all-star game like the Senior Bowl and/or East-West Shrine.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Collin Johnson, Texas
  • '19 - Gary Jennings, West Virginia
14. SMU image Reggie Roberson Jr., WR, SMU
Height: 5-10. Weight: 197.
Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Roberson played well for SMU in 2020. He is put together well for a slot receiver, and he has good speed to stretch defenses vertically. Last year was not his first season of solid play, as Roberson made some big plays for the Mustangs in 2019 while averaging 18.7 yards per catch.





Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Van Jefferson, Florida
  • '19 - David Sills, West Virginia
15. Florida image Jacob Copeland*, WR, Florida

Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
Projected Round (2022): 3-5.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Copeland played well in 2020, but Florida featured Kyle Pitts and Kadarius Toney. Copeland has upside to be better in 2021 if can take on a bigger role.

Similar to Trevon Grimes, Jacob Copeland flashed in limited opportunities in 2019. Florida's wide receiver corps was enviably 6-7 deep with NFL talents in 2019. Copeland could end up being the Gators' No. 1 receiver in 2021.

6/26/21: Rambo played at Oklahoma for four seasons before transferring to the Hurricanes for the 2021 season. As a Sooner, Rambo flashed in a rotation with a lot of talented receivers, but in Miami, he could be the No. 1 receiver for D'Eriq King in 2021. Rambo has some speed and height but could stand to fill out his frame for the NFL.

6/26/21: Conner flashed some big ability in the past two seasons with averages of 17 and 20 yards per reception. He has the size and strength to create a mismatch and is a red zone weapon. Showing the speed to separate at an all-star game would help him.

Previous Seasons

  • '20 - John Hightower, Boise State
  • '19 - Jon'Vea Johnson, Toledo
23. Tulsa image Keylon Stokes*, WR, Tulsa
Height: 5-9. Weight: 199.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 4-6.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Stokes is a short, but well-put-together wide recevier with some serious strength to help offset his lack of length. On top of his power, Stokes has nice play speed with real quickness. His best season was 2019, and he is capable of producing well, but Tulsa has a number of good receivers, so it could be difficult for any one to rack up a massive year of production.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Donovan Peoples-Jones, Michigan
  • '19 - Jaylen Smith, Louisville
24. Stanford image Michael Wilson*, WR/C, Stanford
Height: 6-1. Weight: 203.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 4-6.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Wilson flashed in 2019, showing some ability in Stanford's ground-based offense. He has quality size with some quickness. Producing more in 2021 and showing separation ability would help Wilson to rise.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Quintez Cephus, Wisconsin
  • '19 - Jakobi Meyers, N.C. State
25. Tulane image Deuce Watts*, WR, Tulane
Height: 6-1. Weight: 194.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 4-6.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Watts flashed some playmaking ability for the Green Wave during the 2020 season, averaging 17 yards per reception. Watts has quality size to him and showing the speed to separate could cause him to rise.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Quartney Davis, Texas A&M
  • '19 - Jamarius Way, South Alabama
26. Wake Forest image Jaquari Roberson*, WR, Wake Forest
Height: 6-1. Weight: 183.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2022): 4-6.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Roberson broke out in 2020 with solid production for the Demon Deacons. He has quality height, but he could stand to fill out his frame for the NFL. Showing the speed to separate against good competition is also critical for Roberson.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Jauan Jennings, Tennessee
  • '19 - Tyre Brady, Marshall
27. Kentucky image Josh Ali, WR, Kentucky
Height: 5-11. Weight: 187.
Projected 40 Time: 4.6.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Ali was solid for Kentucky in 2020 and shows some slot receiver potential for the NFL. He has made NFL teams' preseason watch list the past two years in a row. Some advance scouts project him to Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - K.J. Hill, Ohio State
  • '19 - Travis Fulgham, Old Dominion
28. N.C. State image Emeka Emezie, WR, N.C. State
Height: 6-3. Weight: 210.
Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Emezie played well for the Wolfpack in 2020 and was a solid contributor as well in 2019, showing quality size for the next level. Proving he has the speed to separate and being more productive would help him as a senior.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Tyrie Cleveland, Florida
  • '19 - Anthony Johnson, Buffalo
29. Virginia Tech image Tre Turner*, WR, Virginia Tech
Height: 6-1. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Turner has been a steady producer the past three seasons and a consistent contributor for the Hokies. He has quality height and could stand to add more strength for the NFL.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Trishton Jackson, Syracuse
  • '19 - Stanley Morgan, Nebraska
30. Coastal Carolina image Jaivon Heiligh*, WR, Coastal Carolina
Height: 6-0. Weight: 187.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Heiligh played well in 2020, averaging 15 yards per reception and finding the end zone 10 times. It was a big jump in production over his previous two seasons. While being put together well, Heiligh needs to show speed to separate in 2021.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Devin Duvernay, Texas
  • '19 - Jazz Ferguson, Northwestern State
31. Maryland image Dontay Demus Jr.*, WR, Maryland
Height: 6-3. Weight: 213.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Demus has a good skill set with the upside to produce more in 2021. The key is Maryland getting him the ball because he made only 41 receptions in 2019 and 24 in the shortened 2020 season.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Isaiah Hodgins, Oregon State
  • '19 - Mecole Hardman, Georgia
32. Mississippi State image Malik Heath, WR, Mississippi State
Height: 6-2. Weight: 208.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Heath flashed during the 2020 season with 307 yards on 37 receptions with three touchdowns. The Bulldogs had inconsistent quarterback play, but Heath has a good skill set and could be a riser in 2021 as the No. 1 receiver in Mike Leach's Air Raid offense.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - K.J. Osborn, Miami
  • '19 - Lil'Jordan Humphrey, Texas
33. Lenoir-Rhyne image Dareke Young*, WR, Lenoir-Rhyne
Height: 6-1. Weight: 214.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 5-7.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Young has been a big-point producer for Lenoir-Rhyne, notching 12 touchdowns over only 48 career receptions. He played well in 2019 and looked poised for a massive 2020 prior to the pandemic limiting him to only two games played. Young could be a riser as a senior, and it would help him to get to an all-star game and excel there.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Binjimen Victor, Ohio State
  • '19 - Ventell Bryant, Temple
34. Cincinnati image Michael Young*, WR, Cincinnati
Height: 5-10. Weight: 199.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 6-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Young is a slot receiver candidate for the NFL and a nice No. 2 to complement Alec Pierce. With a quality quarterback in Desmond Ridder and Pierce drawing attention on the other side, Young could have a big 2021 season for Cincinnati.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Nick Westbrook, Indiana
  • '19 - KeeSean Johnson, Fresno State
35. SMU image Danny Gray*, WR, SMU
Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 6-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Even though he didn't produce a huge year, Gray impressed advance scouts in the 2020 season enough to land on their 2021 preseason watch list. He has slot receiver potential for the next level and could riser in 2021.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Marquez Callaway, Tennessee
  • '19 - Antoine Wesley, Texas Tech
36. Southern Miss image Jason Brownlee*, WR, Southern Miss
Height: 6-2. Weight: 197.
Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
Projected Round (2022): 6-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Brownlee flashed with Southern Miss in 2020, averaging 18 yards per reception. He could rise if the Golden Eagles get him the ball more consistently.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Jeff Thomas, Miami
  • '19 - Diontae Johnson, Toledo
37. Rutgers image Bo Melton, WR, Rutgers
Height: 5-10. Weight: 188.
Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Melton has put together modest production over the past three seasons, but he showed enough quickness and route-running ability over that time to make it on NFL teams' 2021 preseason watch list. Melton needs to produce well as a senior to rise as a slot receiver candidate.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Dezmon Patmon, Washington State
  • '19 - John Ursua, Hawaii
38. TCU image J.D. Spielman, WR, TCU
Height: 5-9. Weight: 180.
Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Spielman missed the majority of the 2019 season with an injury. Prior to 2020, Spielman was a productive and consistent receiver for Nebraska over three seasons. He then used the transfer portal to end up at TCU. Spielman is undersized, but he could compete for slot receiver reps in the NFL.



Previous Seasons

  • '20 - Cody White, Michigan State
  • '19 - Anthony Ratliff-Williams, North Carolina
39. Toledo image Matt Landers*, WR, Toledo
Height: 6-4. Weight: 198.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 7-FA.
View Ranking History

6/26/21: Landers couldn't see the field consistently at Georgia, but he flashed mismatch size with upside to produce. His skill set was noticed by the advance scouts, who put him on their preseason watch list. Toledo has featured an aerial offense, so Landers could break out with the Rockets.
