    7/6/20: Chase broke 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. It would be surprising if Chase returned for his senior year and was in the 2022 NFL Draft class

    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: Ross is out for the 2020 season due to a spinal condition that is requiring surgery. The surgery is said to be from a congenital neck issue, and there has been speculation that it could be career-ending. Players have still entered NFL drafts despite missing seasons with injuries, but it seems more likely that Ross would return to Clemson in 2021 to show he's healthy and the same player to be a high pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

    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

    7/6/20: 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

    View Ranking History

    7/6/20: The Buckeyes had other good receiving talent with more experience in 2019 but Olave because 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. He could produce a huge junior year due to Justin Fields having more experience at quarterback

    7/6/20: Waddle has dangerous speed and is a threat to score on any reception. His tremendous average per reception over the past two seasons is indicative of his big-play ability. Waddle could stand to get stronger for the NFL
