So, back to the 2020 group. We’re going to take a deeper dive into the top five players in this draft class. However, before we do, we must first take a look at some of the other players that round-out this talented class. In addition to the big names that sit at the top of the list, the depth and breadth of the players at the wide receiver position in the 2020 class is what makes it special.

Jalen Reagor (TCU), DeVonta Smith (Alabama), K.J. Hamler (Penn State), Justin Jefferson (LSU), Tylan Wallace (Oklahoma State), Donovon Peoples-Jones (Michigan), and Collin Johnson (Texas) are all players that are eligible for the 2020 NFL draft that are likely top-75 draft selections, yet aren’t top five players at the position.

Plus, there is a group of players, whose draft stock is on the rise from having a brilliant 2019 season, that could change the outlook of this class and its stock. That list consists of Sage Surratt (Wake Forest), Devin Duvernay (Texas), Bryan Edwards (South Carolina), and Brandon Aiyuk (Arizona State). If you need a wide receiver in the middle rounds of the 2020 NFL draft, players such as K.J. Hill (Ohio State), Antonio Gandy-Golden (Liberty), Kalija Lipscomb (Vanderbilt), Aaron Fuller (Washington), and Tyler Johnson (Minnesota) would be extreme values that boast talent too.

But, the question remains: what makes the 2020 draft class special?
