Nice list, have you watched any tape on DeVonta Smith yet. Impressive as he was on a very deep team, but catches just about everything, split defenders and has break away speed. I have to slip him in between 6 and 10. Easy 12 coming out this year that can be very productive in the NFL.

Haven’t watched him yet. There was some talk of him coming back so I’m holding off.

Going out of my way to stay away from big, physical jump ball guys who don't get much separation. Feel like the game is slowly moving towards faster route technicians based on how recent WR classes have done. Not that I think size/physicality is a negative but I don't see it as being enough on its own.
You may find Mike Evans but from what I see you are more likely to land the next Josh Doctson or JJ Arcega Whiteside.

That means I would avoid Tee Higgins unless he falls (like him more than most other WRs of this archetype and could change my opinion after the combine) and also Pittman - especially considering he is a senior. Probably include Chase Claypool and Collin Johnson as well

Haven't watched enough of Aiyuk yet to see if he falls into this group.

Good feedback, I agree there is a trend towards quick route runners who can create separation

It's an ebb and flow. Once CBs become smaller and more compact to keep up with the shifty route running WRs towers will become the new meta. I remember seeing a graphic of Alshon and BMarsh at and average of 6'3 towering over a pair of CBs from iirc the Patriots whose average height was 5'10.5. Both had a pretty solid game.

Now it's hill blowing past everyone, or Michael Thomas turning fools inside out.

The NFL will always catch up, it's our job to stay ahead of the curve.

Thank you! There’s some guys unlisted on there I have on my radar, but I probably won’t be ranking those guys until they are drafted. Overall I think that’s a nice list of all the WRs that will most likely get drafted.

All I gotta say is get on the Bryan Edwards train! That mf is unbelievable. If Jeudy doesn’t show out in his bowl game Edwards will most likely be my #1 WR

With you on the top 6 and then would toss Edwards at 7. I need to watch more tape on Pittman, boards deep and dynamic for sure.

I need to see Shenault acceleration and 40 time do well for me to move him up. Because on tape he looks slow. And he's also beating up on weaker conference DB's
