DRAFT PROSPECTS ANALYSIS: WIDE RECEIVERS


The success of speedy wide receivers in the PFL has been well documented. Play action crossing patterns that lead to inevitable separations and the infamous heave-ho fade routes to leaping monsters has put PFL GMs on alert. There is now a mad rush to acquire receivers with speed to burn and the abilities to cross the field rapidly as well as outjump opposing DBs. As GMs scramble to grab top DBs that can matchup, so too do GMs race to snatch up the latest, greatest Ferrari to terrorize the league. While there were six corners taken in the first round last year, there were also six wide receivers gobbled up in the first round. Garrett Wilson (Buffalo), Drake London (New Orleans), Chris Olave (Jacksonville), Tyquan Thornton (New England), Treylon Burks (Philadelphia), and Jameson Williams (Dallas) all found their way onto rosters in the first round last season. Wilson would catch 56 balls for 671 yards and 5 TDs, London would have 45 receptions for 592 yards and 5 TDs, Olave had 54 catches for 800 yards and 7 TDs, Thornton would have an unreal season with 130 receptions for 1519 yards and 8 TDs, Burks was every bit as dynamic as Thornton with his 87 catches for 1154 yards and an amazing 21 TDs, and Williams would check in with 44 receptions, 761 yards, 5 TDs, and a glittering 17.3 YPC average for the Super Bowl bound Cowboys! Wilson has 93 speed, Burks and Olave have 94 speed while the Patriots' Thornton is one of the fastest in football with his blazing 98 speed... This year's class is loaded with speedsters touting various skills and attributes but is also extremely varied by age! It will be more than intriguing to see how the PFL GMs sift through the talents and then try to select the correct asset to be their guy come next Fall.

Did we say "speed"? 24 year old Arkansas Razorback Mordecai Remson is this year's recipient of the "Speedster of the Year" award. However, the diminutive 5'8" 167 LBs Remson is not likely to be an early draft selection as he showed miserable at the combine earning him a horrendous 41 catch and 21 catch in traffic score. His best chance at making a PFL roster is almost surely as a kick returner where his 93 rating may serve a purpose if he can be squeezed onto a 53. A more likely 24 year old that could very well go #1 in this draft would be Mississippi State's Alister Braziel. Braziel is a ready-made star standing at 6'3" and 217 LBs! He brings a blistering combo of speed (97), acceleration (98), agility (94) that is matched by his excellent route and catching skill set! He also has a high motor and is one of just two receivers in this draft who is highly rated for all the catching skills: Possession, sideline, aggressive, and RAC! Add in that he is seen as the top kick returner in the class (93), can jump and has good special catch numbers, and can even run block and, my God, Frankenstein has arrived!

Two other oldies but goodies, join Braziel as enticing draft targets. 23 year old Virginia Cavalier Colter Seldon and 24 year old North Carolina Tar Heel Andre Macintyre cannot be dismissed simply due to their ages. Macintyre's numbers rival those of Braziel's but he is, perhaps, a smidge below the Bulldog. Still, he is a huge target at 6'2" 228 LBs, can block, catch everything, and he has the highest catch in traffic (85) and second highest catch (83) rating in the draft. Seldon is a bit of a tank at 6'1" and 223 LBs. He is not quite to the levels of Braziel or even Macintyre but he is a year younger and his 95 jump number is tops in the class among serious draft options.

There are some very good younger options in this class as well. 20 year old Miami Hurricane Jalen Rosher, 21 year old Florida Gator Skye Cottrell, and 22 year old Oklahoma Sooner Brandon Philogene should all garner high ratings and could easily be selected ahead of the elder statesmen in this draft. The young Rosher has excellent speed (94) but his slow acceleration (89) will likely dampen some of his exploseiveness and is a major concern that could hold him back from being a top choice. Cottrell is an exciting prospect. An imposing 6'4" 231 LBs, the ex-Gator could be a dangerous weapon with his 90 jump and 85 special catch numbers. He can catch the ball but will need a bit of polish on his route running and he lacks many of the catching traits one desires with only the possession catch as part of his arsenal. His 92 speed is quick enough but he seems much comfortable as a likely excellent #2 receiver as opposed to a true #1. Philogene is as fast as Rosher but has much better acceleration numbers. His 92 jump is excellent and his 87 special catch rates as the best among the top prospects making him a prime candidate for fade route attacks despite his 6'0" frame. His route running and catching skills need to improve but he has all the receiving traits except the RAC.

There are also a few talented receivers who do not have the Star Development rating but are, nonetheless , good options. Indiana Hoosier Kody Smith has many tools and is, along with Braziel, one of the two in this class that has all the catching traits. His route running, catching skills, jumping , and special catch numbers are all ready-to-go caliber. A 93 speed, 91 acceleration, and 77 release guy, Smith is a solid choice as a #2 or very good slot wide receiver. 20 year old Ohio State Buckeye Kaleb Marchetti has age on his side but his 91 speed almost certainly does not fit the mold of a speed burner and his 68 special catch all but precludes him from being a true vertical threat. He also lacks three of the four catching attributes although he does have the ability to run after the catch. A smallish 5'11" 201 LBs frame makes him likely to be a slot wide or possession type that can move the chains but is not as big a threat once inside the red zone areas.

There are quite a few others that should gain attention as the draft proceeds. 20 year old West Virginia Mountaineer Kaden Chasser could find a home in the 2nd or 3rd rounds. Chasser has upside but will need time to progress his catching skills and route running. His 93 speed is good but his 69 release could mean he can be press covered. 21 year old Michigan Wolverine Darcy Dixon has unquestioned speed (95) but there is concern his slow acceleration rate (87) and the fact he possesses none of the catching traits will see him slide. 21 year old Mississippi Rebel Skyler Williams has a nice skill set that, with some work, could translate into a very good finished product. A bit of a sleeper. the Ole Miss grad could find himself playing as a solid #2 or slot wide receiver within an offense that already has speed. Two more 21 year olds, Texas Longhorn Donavan Thompson and Georgia Bulldog Everleigh Hamilton have a simlar skill set to Williams but just a tad under his level. Thompson's very low 57 special catch, 84 jump, and 5'10" height all but takes him off the deep threat table although the rest of his slate suggests he could end up as a very good #2 or #3 type target. Finally, 22 year old LSU Tiger Shelton Dagenais could also be a nice find later in the draft. His age and 90 speed will almost surely guarantee he slides down in the draft and the fact he does not have any of the catching traits will be a major red flag. Dagenais will probably slip big time but eventually find himself on a roster.
