The 2020 draft class has A LOT of talent at the wide receiver position. Here are my top 5:
Ceedee Lamb is explosive and has incredible hands. He doesn’t have game changing speed but he’s not slow by any means. He’s very reliable, a great route runner, and knows how to adjust his play for his quarterback. Lamb does not go down without a fight, breaking a ton of tackles of his college career. Without a doubt the most pro ready receiver in this class.
Not even really the number two, more like 1B, Jerry Jeudy is a phenomenal route runner. He has elite speed and agility and can take a quick slant to the house. Jeudy is also solid in contested catches. Only potential downside is his size; he’s on the smaller side of receivers, so if a bigger DB gets him at the line, his release may be delayed.
One of many players coming from LSU in this draft, Justin Jefferson is an amazing, underrated receiver. He’s got great hands, can play both in the slot and outside, and has amazing after catch burst.
4)Henry Ruggs III
Ruggs is a great receiver, but his play is almost one dimensional. His speed is his best trait, which isn’t a bad thing, but I wouldn’t call him elite in any other category. It doesn’t mean he’s bad, you can’t coach speed. You can coach catching and route running though. He may end up as the best receiver in this class.
Higgins is a great all around receiver, with his best quality being his ability to high point the ball, making him a solid potential deep threat. He’s a strong athlete with reliable hands. The biggest flaw in Higgins’s game is his release on the line of scrimmage. If he can fix that, he could easily be a top 3 receiver in this class.
