There are 32 picks in the first round. Miami has three picks in the first round and are in the market for a wide receiver and quarterback. Las Vegas has the 12th pick and with offensive minded head coach John Gruden it would be no surprise for the team to select a receiver despite their needs on defense. Tampa Bay with the 14th pick in the draft may look for help for newly acquired Tom Brady. Philadelphia selects 21st and could use depth at wide receiver after going through cluster injuries in the 2019 campaign. San Francisco has two picks in the first round and could target a wide out to help Jimmy Garoppolo and the teams run game.

Alabama wide out Jerry Jeudy is rated as the top player at the position. He exits the Crimson Tide after his junior season. Jeudy caught 77 passes last year with ten touchdowns and 15.1 yards per reception. Oklahoma Sooners CeeDee Lamb is projected second best. He saw significant action in all three years at Oklahoma. Lamb caught 62 passes with 14 touchdowns and a very good 21.4 yards per completion in his final year. Henry Ruggs III from Alabama is penciled as the third receiver selected. Lined up opposite of Jeudy, his numbers were not as good with 40 catches and seven touchdowns. But he had a very good 18.7 yards per receptions.

Justin Jefferson out of LSU is projected as fourth best receiver prospect in the draft. He had no catches in his freshman year and saw significant action in the final two of his three seasons with the Tigers. He was a workhorse in 2019 with 111 receptions with 18 touchdowns and 13.9 yards per catch. From Arizona St Brandon Aiyuk is projected as fifth best wide out. He entered major college football in his junior season. In two seasons with the Sun Devils, Aiyuk had 98 receptions with 11 touchdowns and 18.3 yards per rush. He had an inexperienced true freshman throwing to him during his senior campaign. Tee Higgins from Clemson is the sixth ranked receiver. In three seasons with the Tigers Higgins averaged 18.1 yards per completed passes. Next in the rankings is Michael Pittman Jr. from USC. Pittman Jr. contributed in all four seasons as a Trojan. Last year as a senior the USC wideout 101 catches with possession type 12.1 yards per completed pass. But USC had to utilize three quarterbacks last year due to injuries at the position. Laviska Shenault Jr. from Colorado has talent but has gone through injuries during his time with the Buffaloes.
