The current odds at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy favored to go first at -180 odds. Jeudy made 77 catches for the Crimson Tide last season posting 10 touchdowns with 15.1 yards per reception. He has good top level speed for the position but the question is strength against man to man coverage breaking free from coverage.

Second in the wagering is CeeDee Lamb of the Oklahoma Sooners at +120 odds. He had a strong 2019 campaign with the Sooners catching 62 passes with 14 touchdowns and an awesome 21.4 yards per catch average. Lamb displayed great breakaway speed in his time in college. He has good ability to separate from defenders. Many questions the level of quality defenses he faced in the Big 12 conference.

Longshot in the odds is Henry Ruggs of Alabama at +480 odds. Ruggs had 40 catches and 7 touchdowns in 2019 lined up with Jeudy in pass patterns. He showed breakaway speed with 18.7 yards per catch. Ruggs adjusted well with the receiver talent with the Crimson Tide by running to the middle of the field to get looks.

The Field brings back +4000. Justin Jefferson from LSU and Brandon Aiyuk out of Arizona St are the next best in the wide receiver rankings. Jefferson put up monster numbers last season taking throws from Joe Burrow. The Tigers wide out had 111 catches with 18 touchdowns averaging 13.9 yards per reception. He started in two seasons and some question his ability to break away from corners in tight man to man coverage. Aiyuk did not have the fortune to play with an established quarterback in 2019 as the Sun Devils utilized a true freshman who had a lot to learn about the position. Still Aiyuk had 65 catches for 8 touchdowns with 18.3 yards per receptions.

In many mock drafts it appears the first wide receiver taken in this draft will be the eleventh pick with the New York Jets. The team is in desperate need for targets in the passing game for their young quarterback Sam Darnold. Jets also had the worst rushing attack in the NFL with 3.3 yards per average. Also, in the hunt for a wide receiver are the Las Vegas Raiders who are projected selecting that position with the 12th pick. Following the Raiders with the 13th pick are the San Francisco 49ers who are also in need of a receiver. Late in the first round the Jaguars, Vikings and Packers will be looking for receiver talent.
