  1. Ja'Marr Chase*, WR, LSU
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.4.
    Projected Round (2021): Top-16.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Chase decided to skip the 2020 season and prepare for the NFL Draft. It probably was a wise decision to protect his draft stock as he really could not get any higher. His production was bound to decline without Joe Burrow at quarterback and other talented players like wide receiver Justin Jefferson and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire drawing attention from defenses. With just Chase returning, defenses would have sent bracket coverage and his numbers would have declined while taking an injury risk. Chase should be safe as a top-10 pick next April in the 2021 NFL Draft.

    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 and was the best wide receiver in college football in 2019 without 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.

    The first thing that stands out about Chase is his speed and ability to separate. Chase has a burst off the line with sudden explosive speed to quickly generate separation from cornerbacks. Chase is fast through his routes and defensive backs have a near impossible task of running with him. On top of off-game breaking speed, Chase is a quality route-runner and he is sudden in out of his breaks. Being fast and sudden translates to Chase being a dangerous yards after the catch weapon. He is elusive in the open field with good moves to dodge tacklers and vision to see openings for longer gains. He does a nice job on winning 50-50 tases, has late hands, high points the ball well, and is a natural hands catcher. Team sources have compared Chase to being a better version of Amari Cooper, the fourth-overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.




  2. DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 175.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: In 2019, Smith had 68 receptions for 1,256 yards with 14 touchdowns. He put together a record-setting game of 11 receptions for 274 yards with five touchdowns against Ole Miss.

    Smith went under the radar playing with Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, but he is a good prospect in his own right. Team sources say that of the trio of Alabama receiver prospects eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft, Smith could have the best hands and was the most consistent down-in-and-down-out.

    Smith is a tough receiver who has demonstrated quality speed, route-running, and superb ball skills. He also has proven run-after-the-catch skills and is able to get yards after contact and dodge defenders. Smith is superb with his body control along the sideline to adjust to passes and stay in bounds as a runner.


  3. T.J. Vasher, WR, Texas Tech
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.51.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Team sources say that Vasher jumped out at them last year with a style of play that is similar to Bengals star A.J. Green. Vasher has excellent height, and scouts say he plays fast for that size. While he is not a burner, given his length and size, he has very good speed and quickness. Evaluators say Vasher has outstanding to exceptional hands, superb ball adjustment, and is decent running after the catch.


  4. Chris Olave*, WR, Ohio State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: The Buckeyes had other good receiving talent with more experience in 2019, but Olave because their most dynamic receiver playmaker across the season. He was a big-time point producer, and it looked like he was just getting started.

    Olave has quality height and the speed to get downfield. He could produce a huge junior year with a more experienced Justin Fields at quarterback, but foolish decision makers in Big Ten presidents and commissioner Kevin Warren made the decision to protect their job security over considering the science that football players are more likely to die in a car accident driving to practice than from COVID-19.




  5. Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Terry recorded 44 receptions for 892 yards and eight scores in 2019. He took a touchdown 75 yards against Boise State. Team sources are high on Terry's potential with his excellent combination of size and speed. The 6-foot-4, 203-pounder is fast for a big receiver and has athleticism. As a redshirt freshman, Terry had 35 receptions for 744 yards and eight touchdowns. He has the upside and skill set to be an early-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.


  6. Seth Williams*, WR, Auburn
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 224.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: 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.


  7. Rondale Moore*, WR, Purdue
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Due to his elite speed, Moore is an explosive playmaker with the ability to score on any touch. He had a tremendous freshman season, but his sophomore year was limited because he missed eight games with a hamstring injury.


  8. Jaylen Waddle*, WR, Alabama
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 182.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.45.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: 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.


  9. Amon-Ra St. Brown*, WR, USC
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 1-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: St. Brown was very productive for USC in 2019, forming a dangerous tandem with Michael Pittman Jr. St. Brown has quality size and quickness. He could have been in store for a big year as USC's No. 1 receiver and the replacement for Pittman, but the Pac-12 canceled the 2020 season.




  10. Jhamon Ausbon, WR, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: While Quartney Davis and Kendrick Rogers disappointed for the Aggies in 2019, Ausbon stepped up and was a solid receiver for Kellen Mond. Ausbon could take on a bigger role as a senior with both Davis and Rogers trying to make NFL rosters. Ausbon is put together well, and he has more quickness than one would expect. Some team sources said they had given him grades for Day 2 if he had entered the 2020 NFL Draft.


  11. Marquez Stevenson, WR, Houston
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.43.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Team sources say that Stevenson jumped out to them last year, and they feel he could be a poor man's Hollywood Brown. Stevenson has serious speed and is a vertical deep-threat receiver for the next level. Entering the season, sources think he could end up being an early-rounder in the 2021 NFL Draft.


  12. Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Wallace had 53 receptions for 903 yards and eight touchdowns in 2019 before going down with a serious knee injury in practice that ended his year. Wallace was wise to go back to the Cowboys rather than enter the 2020 NFL Draft. As a sophomore, he caught 86 passes for 1,491 yards with 12 touchdowns.

    Wallace might fit best in the NFL as a slot receiver because team sources believe that he is not as big as his listed numbers. They feel that he is similar to Josh Doctson, but Wallace is smaller. They call Wallace a tough receiver who plays big but lacks speed. They say he runs good routes and runs well after the catch, but he doesn't have a special dimension of mismatch size or speed.


  13. Terrace Marshall Jr.*, WR, LSU
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Mitchell flashed ability and upside as a backup receiver during LSU's perfect 2019 season. While Ja'Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson were the top receivers, Mitchell still managed to haul in 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns. Mitchell was likely to be the Tigers' No. 2 receiver in 2020, but that was before Chase opted out of the season. Mitchell could produce a big year, but that will depend on how well LSU's new quarterback plays.


  14. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.44.
    Projected Round (2021): 2-3.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Team sources have said that Toney has big-time ability with playmaking speed and is very dangerous with the ball in his hands. He missed a lot of the 2019 season with an injury, so he must stay healthy as a senior. He has a ton of ability and upside.




  15. Rashod Bateman*, WR, Minnesota
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-4.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Bateman was part of dynamic tandem with Tyler Johnson in 2019, and with Johnson now in the NFL, Bateman was likely to move from being the No. 2 wide receiver to the No. 1 role. With a former NFL wide receivers coach as the head coach of the Gophers, Bateman is receiving solid grooming in terms of his route running and technique. Bateman had the potential to put up a huge junior year and rise up these rankings, but the Big Ten canceled the 2020 season.


  16. Tyler Vaughns*, WR, USC
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-4.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Vaughns was a good No. 2 receiver to Michael Pittman Jr. in 2019, and he could have taken a big jump as a senior if he emerged as the Trojans' No. 1 wide receiver with a more experienced quarterback. The 2020 season, however, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Vaughns still needs to show the ability to separate from top competition, and it would not hurt him to add some strength to battle pro cornerbacks.


  17. Warren Stewart, WR, Colorado State
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Stewart is a mammoth receiver who presents a giant size-mismatch problem for defensive backs. After not doing much during his first two seasons, Stewart broke out in 2019 with 77 catches for 1,119 yards and eight touchdowns. If Stewart shows the speed to separate, he could skyrocket.


  18. Jacob Copeland**, WR, Florida
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 192.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Similar to Trevon Grimes, Jacob Copeland flashed in limited opportunities last year. Florida's wide receiver corps was enviably 6-7 deep with NFL talents in 2019. The redshirt sophomore could end up being the Gators' slot receiver in 2020.


  19. Anthony Schwartz*, WR, Auburn
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 179.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Schwartz is smaller slot receiver who has the upside to improve as a junior. He showed some ability to get open, and with more experience at quarterback, the Auburn passing game could be more consistent in 2020. Schwartz also should benefit from defenses sending extra coverage toward Seth Williams.


  20. Mike Strachan, WR, University of Charleston
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 3-5.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Strachan is a small-school receiver to keep an eye on. On top of having imposing size, Strachan has been a track performer for Charleston. Strachan dominated the competition in 2019, catching 19 touchdowns over 78 receptions. In his first season of playing college football, he had 48 receptions for 1,007 yards and eight scores.

    Hailing from the Bahamas provides some context for why a big wideout with quickness ended up at a DII school. If Strachan has great Senior Bowl and NFL Scouting Combine performances, he could rocket up draft boards.


  21. Dazz Newsome, WR, North Carolina
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Newsome had a productive junior year, showing the ability to move the chains with quickness and putting together an impressive touchdown total for a smaller receiver. For the NFL, Newsome could fit best as a slot receiver.


  22. Trevon Grimes, WR, Florida
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 214.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.53.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Grimes flashed in 2019, making some big plays for the Gators. He has mismatch size and should take on a bigger role in 2020 because Florida lost a few receivers to the 2020 NFL Draft. Grimes has the potential to be a riser.


  23. Johnny Johnson III, WR, Oregon
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 199.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Johnson was a dependable receiver for Justin Herbert in 2019. It would be interesting to see how Johnson performs with a new quarterback. He has some quickness in a solid frame, and he could be a fit as a slot receiver candidate for the NFL.


  24. Austin Watkins, WR, UAB
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 4-6.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Watkins has good size to him, and he had an impressive 2019 season for UAB. He averaged almost 20 yards per catch last year, showing quickness to make plays. If Watkins can prove that he has speed to separate at an all-star game to go along with his obvious size, he could rise.


  25. Elijah Cooks, WR, Nevada
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Cooks broke out in 2019 by using his size to be a weapon for the Wolf Pack. He could rise if he shows the speed to separate.


  26. Tarik Black, WR, Texas
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Black decided to transfer to Texas from Michigan after last season. In 2019 for Michigan, he had 25 receptions for 323 yards and a touchdown. Black was held back the inconsistent passing of the Wolverines.

    Black was a top recruit who flashed some real ability early on at Michigan, but he sustained a broken foot as a freshman and missed the last 10 games of 2017. That year, he recorded had 11 receptions for 149 yard and a touchdown. Black then suffered another broken foot in August of 2018. Black could produce well in 2020 if he's able to avoid injury.


  27. Ronnie Bell, WR, Michigan
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 184.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Bell could be a slot receiver candidate for the NFL. As a sophomore, he had a solid season for the Wolverines despite the inconsistent play of quarterback Shea Patterson. If Bell can add some weight to his frame, he could get consideration as an outside receiver.


  28. Dai'Jean Dixon, WR, Nicholls State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Dixon averaged almost 20 yards per catch in 2019 while topping 1,000 yards on barely 50 receptions. The big wideout has mismatch size. On top of staying consistent as a senior, he needs to show the speed to separate from better competition.


  29. Rico Bussey Jr., WR, Hawaii
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 5–7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Bussey notched five receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown in 2019 before going out for the season with a torn ACL. He was wise to take a medical redshirt for 2020, taking the opportunity to be a graduate transfer.

    Bussey impressed enough at North Texas over the past few seasons to earn a spot on NFL teams' preseason watch list for the 2020 and 2021 NFL Drafts. Not only has Bussey made the list twice, he received a projection of having potential for the first four rounds by the advance scouts for the 2020 NFL Draft cycle. It sounds, however, like off-the-field and injury concerns could cause him to slide.

    In 2018, Bussey caught 68 passes for 1,017 yards with 12 touchdowns. He had 46 receptions for 677 yards and seven scores in 2017.


  30. J.D. Spielman, WR, TCU
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Spielman was a productive and consistent receiver for Nebraska over the past three seasons. He then used the transfer portal to end up at TCU. Spielman is undersized, but could compete for slot receiver reps in the NFL.


  31. Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.57.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Rodgers has a running back's build and could be a slot receiver candidate for the NFL. He has the potential to rise in 2020 if he becomes the featured receiver with Justyn Ross out for the season. Rodgers has a lot of experience, but Clemson is always deep at receiver, so he will have to earn his targets.


  32. Sage Surratt*, WR, Wake Forest
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.7.
    Projected Round (2021): 5-7.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Surratt decided to sit out the 2019 season because of Covid-19. Surratt is a big receiver who uses his size to make some big catches over defensive backs. He is a good red-zone weapon, but he really struggles to separate from college cornerbacks, and that issue will only be worse in the NFL.


  33. Damonte Coxie, WR, Memphis
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 197.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Coxie has good size and but is not fast or sudden for the next level. He was very consistent over the past two seasons, and he could produce another good year as a senior. Memphis has a dynamic rushing attack, and Coxie could take advantage of safeties looking to stop the ground attack. Showing the speed to separate against top competition will be important for Coxie in 2020. Sources say their initial impression of Coxie is that he is just a guy.


  34. Ihmir Smith-Marsette, WR, Iowa
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 183.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Smith-Marsette had a solid junior year in which he showed some quickness as a wide receiver. He also recorded three rushing touchdowns. Smith-Marsette should add weight to his frame for the NFL and could be a slot receiver.


  35. Frank Darby, WR, Arizona State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Darby produced some big plays for Arizona State in 2019 while averaging 19.9 yards per catch and serving as a red-zone weapon with eight touchdowns. It would be interesting to see what Darby could have produced if given more opportunities.


  36. Brandon Smith, WR, Iowa
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Smith is a thickly built receiver who has flashed somewhat over the past couple of seasons. He needs to show the speed to separate.


  37. Whop Philyor, WR, Indiana
    Height: 5-11. Weight: 178.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Philyor is a lean receiver who needs to gain some weight for the NFL, but he was a nice weapon for the Hoosiers in 2019. For the next level, Philyor will have to fit as a slot receiver.


  38. D'Wayne Eskridge, WR, Western Michigan
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Eskridge played cornerback as a junior, but he has moved to receiver for his senior year, and NFL teams had him down as a wideout for his senior year. His 2019 season was limited to four games because of a season-ending clavicle injury. Eskridge showed some playmaking ability as a freshman and sophomore at wideout.


  39. Changa Hodge, WR, Villanova
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 209.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Hodge put together good production for Villanova as a junior and was a point producer. Hodge needed to stay consistent with his break out 2019, and it would help him to excel at an all-star game against better competition.


  40. Emeka Emezie, WR, N.C. State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Emezie was a solid contributor for the Wolfpack last year, showing quality size for the next level. Proving he has the speed to separate and being more productive would help him as a senior.


  41. C.J. Riley, WR, N.C. State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Riley tore an ACL in the 2019 season opener on special teams against East Carolina. He was wise to return to N.C. State and not enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

    Riley only had 28 receptions for 315 yards and two touchdowns in 2018, but he impressed enough in games and practice for NFL teams to include him on their preseason watch list for the 2020 NFL Draft. With some older receivers having moved on to the NFL, Riley could take on a bigger role in 2020.


  42. Javon McKinley, WR, Notre Dame
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: McKinley is put together well and has flashed enough in practice to have the advance scouts place him on their preseason watch list. He could take on a bigger role with Chase Claypool in the NFL.


  43. Shi Smith, WR, South Carolina
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 190.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Smith has some slot receiver potential for the NFL. He is a quick and shifty player, but he faces size limitations for the next level.


  44. Demetric Felton, WR, UCLA
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 185.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.

    9/12/20: Felton split his time between taking carries and catching passes in 2019 as a versatile weapon for the Bruins. For the NFL, he projects best as a slot receiver, but he could possibly receive some consideration as a third-down receiving back who provides a mismatch issue against linebackers.


  45. Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 184.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Moore is a slot receiver candidate for the NFL. While he went under the radar, he had a good 2019 season and was a steady receiver for the Rebels.


  46. Nico Ragaini**, WR, Iowa
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 192.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Ragaini was a gritty receiver for Iowa in 2019 and could grow after gaining some experience. The Hawkeyes have a number of receivers, so it could be tough for them to produce big years due to splitting the targets.


  47. Josh Ali, WR, Kentucky
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 188.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.

    9/12/20: Lynn Bowden moving from wide receiver to quarterback saved the Wildcats' season last year, but Bowden serving as a running quarterback hurt the receiving production of the passing attack. Ali was part of that group, but NFL scouts have liked enough from what they've seen of Ali to include him on their preseason watch list for the 2021 NFL Draft. Ali might fit as a slot receiver at the next level.


  48. Reggie Roberson Jr., WR, SMU
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Roberson made some big plays for the Mustangs in 2019 and averaged 18.7 yards per catch. He should take on a bigger role in 2020 with James Proche attempting to make it in the NFL.


  49. Osirus Mitchell, WR, Mississippi State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 206.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Mississippi State had a lot of talented receivers held back in 2019 by inconsistent quarterback play and injuries with the Bulldogs trigger man. Still, Mitchell managed to flash at times, notching six scores over only 29 receptions. He has mismatch size, and it will be interesting to see how he produces in Mike Leach's offense.


  50. Tre Nixon, WR, Central Florida
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Nixon made some big plays for the Knights in 2019, as the No. 2 wide receiver to Gabriel Davis. With Davis in the NFL, Nixon should take over as the No. 1 receiver for the Knights and their point-machine offense. He needs to add weight and fill out his frame for the NFL.


  51. Jonathan Adams Jr., WR, Arkansas State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 209.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.59.
    Projected Round (2021): 6-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Adams produced well for the Red Wolves in 2019. He has quality size, so if he has the ability to separate will be watched closely. It would help him to perform well at an all-star game.


  52. Cade Johnson, WR, South Dakota State
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Johnson is very undersized for the NFL, but he was very productive for the Jackrabbits over the past two seasons. Johnson needs to fill out his frame for the next level and will have to try to make it as a slot receiver.


  53. Thomas Hennigan, WR, Appalachian State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.58.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Hennigan has been a solid contributor for Appalachian State. He has quality size to him and quickness. Hennigan needs a big senior year.


  54. Tutu Atwell*, WR, Louisville
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 153.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Atwell was a productive slot receiver and playmaker for Louisville in 2019. He has serious speed, as evidenced by his excellent yards per catch. Even with his speed and home run potential, Atwell must get stronger for the NFL.


  55. Jaylond Adams, WR, Southern Miss
    Height: 5-10. Weight: 180.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.52.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Adams is very undersized for the next level and needs to add weight to his frame. He looks relegated to being a potential slot receiver.


  56. Adrian Hardy, WR, Louisiana Tech
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.56.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Hardy's best season came in 2018, when he was an effective receiver for the Bulldogs. His role was reduced in 2019, so he needs to rebound as a senior.


  57. Justin Hall, WR, Ball State
    Height: 5-9. Weight: 181.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Hall was a steady receiver for Ball State during the past three seasons. He is undersized for the NFL and will need to grow stronger.


  58. Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 204.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.54.
    Projected Round (2021): 7-FA.
    View Ranking History


    9/12/20: Fitzpatrick was a quality No. 2 receiver to Tutu Atwell in 2019. He needs to show improved production as a senior.
