2020 NFL Draft Positional Breakdown: Top Ten Wide Receivers

The 2020 NFL Draft class of receivers have much to live up to. 2019 boasted seven rookie pass-catchers who impressed immediately. Terry McLaurin, A.J. Brown, D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, Marquise Brown, Darius Slayton, and Diontae Johnson all had great rookie seasons. Now consider this: this year’s top ten wide receivers might be better.

This is the deepest position in the 2020 NFL Draft. Productive players will be available deep into day 3. You’re in luck if your favorite team needs wide receivers. Without further ado, my top wideouts in the 2020 NFL Draft.
