2018 NFL Draft Prospect Rankings

Wide Receivers

QB | RB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | EDGE | OLB | MLB | CB | S

1. Calvin Ridley
College: Alabama

Height: 6’0″, Weight: 189
A strong receiving prospect, Calvin Ridley has a nice well-rounded game. He has shown success getting off of tight coverage. Ridley also moves with the quarterback after a play breaks down. His route running is superb right down to the positioning and quickness of them. If I were being nit-picky with Ridley I’d say he’s not the strongest or most elusive receiver in the draft. His lack of strength could limit his YAC in the NFL. This could make teams wonder if he can be a true number one receiver.

2. Courtland Sutton
College: SMU

Height: 6’3″, Weight: 218
Courtland Sutton has a big body and isn’t afraid to use it. One of the most physical receivers in the draft, Sutton is close to impossible to cover on jump balls. He’s the ideal red zone receiver. His route running is okay and his speed is less than stellar though. But Sutton has the potential the be a number one guy in the NFL.

3. D.J. Chark
College: LSU

Height: 6’3″, Weight: 199
I went back and forth between Courtland Sutton and D.J. Chark for the number two spot in my rankings. Chark is a fantastic route runner and a huge threat when it comes to yards after catch. Chark gets great positioning on his routes and has reliable hands. Top it all off, he also has experience as a returner.

4. Christian Kirk
College: Texas A&M

Height: 5’10”, Weight: 200
One of the most enjoyable receivers to watch. Christian Kirk lines up all over the field including the backfield. Teams will see his versatility as a huge plus. He’s an ideal slot receiver in the NFL. Kirk has great hands, is very quick on his routes, and a huge playmaker after the catch.

5. Anthony Miller
College: Memphis

Height: 5’11”, Weight: 190
One of the better slot receivers in this year’s draft. Anthony Miller has surprising strength and didn’t have much trouble getting separation. A big play receiver after the catch, Miller was Memphis’s go-to guy in pressure situations. His biggest concern is lack of diversity in his route running. Often having his stats padded through screens.
