#1 - Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State

Marvin Harrison Jr. has looked like a future NFL wide receiver ever since his freshman year at Ohio State and he should be the first WR off the board. He’s arguably the top overall prospect in this draft class as well and will likely be the first non-QB taken. The son of a Hall of Famer is as good as advertised with the total package. 

Harrison Jr. boasts the rare combination of size, speed, route-running, and pure football IQ to quickly emerge as a go-to pass-catcher in any offense. He can dominate the middle of the field, out-physical smaller defensive backs, and be a deep threat. 

#2 - Rome Odunze, Washington

If Marvin Harrison Jr. wasn’t in this class, then Rome Odunze would be the top WR prospect. He has the ideal size (6-foot-2, 215 pounds), speed (4.45 in the 40), and proven production at a high level in college. Odunze is especially elite with his short-area quickness and ability to separate on routes. 

He projects a true WR1 at the NFL level and doesn’t have many weaknesses in the skillset. The only real knock is that he benefited from playing in a pass-centric Washington offense with Michael Penix Jr. as his quarterback, but we’re nitpicking there. 




#3 - Malik Nabers, LSU

While Marvin Harrison Jr. and Rome Odunze rank slightly higher, Malik Nabers is the 1C of this WR rookie class. In many other drafts, he would be the first wideout off the board. Nabers has a ton of athleticism and short-burst speed to make acrobatic catches and run away from defenders. 

He also plays with physicality as a receiver to make contested catches. Nabers’ route-running needs to be polished up a bit, but his playmaking ability was obvious if you turned on any LSU game over the past three years. Coincidentally, he profiles similarly to two other former LSU wideouts in Justin Jefferson and Ja'Marr Chase

#4 - Brian Thomas Jr., LSU

Brian Thomas Jr. may be the “other” rookie wide receiver out of LSU, but certainly has the potential to match or exceed Malik Nabers’ production when it’s all said and done. Thomas boasts the physical, athletic profile of a true WR1. At 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds, the size is already there, and he ran a 4.33 in the 40-yard dash. 

Thomas has the vertical speed and field-stretching ability to be a deep threat right away – and it’s an area he excelled in at LSU. His route-running and raw catching ability weren’t fully put on display in college, though, but the upside is there if he puts it all together. 




#5 - Adonai Mitchell, Texas

Adonai Mitchell is another wide receiver who would be a top prospect at the position in most other years. Mitchell has the ideal combo of size (6-foot-2) and speed (4.34 in the 40) to be a starting outside wideout in the NFL. He also is a polished route runner with excellent hands to give him nearly the full package. 

Mitchell will get by with his fluidity and smooth play, but he’s a bit thin for his height and doesn’t play with much physicality. Even so, he can stretch the field and develop into a top target at the next level. 

#6 - Troy Franklin, Oregon

In a loaded rookie WR class, Troy Franklin may go overlooked but he has the talent to develop into one of the best of this group. Franklin is an explosive athlete with smooth, fluid route-running and a great natural feel for the position. 

He makes it look easy as he gets open at all levels with versatility to play on the outside or in the slot. Franklin’s thinner frame and lack of physical strength are slight concerns, but he can still be plenty impactful with his pure athleticism and speed to beat defenders. 




#7 - Ladd McConkey, Georgia

Ladd McConkey may not project as a true No. 1 wide receiver at the next level, but he has some readymade traits that should translate well. McConkey is an exceptional route runner with the agility and quickness to separate from defensive backs on both short and deep targets. 

His 4.39 in the 40-yard dash is a good sign that his speed can carry over to the NFL. Though a talented pass-catcher, McConkey isn’t as strong or as physical as others in this class and will need to improve on contested catches. The two-time national champ at Georgia also brings that winning mentality to the team that drafts him. 

#8 - Ricky Pearsall, Florida

Since he played on an underwhelming Florida team last year, Ricky Pearsall could fly under the radar to casual fans. However, don’t overlook Pearsall eventually emerging as one of the top wideouts in this rookie class. 

He is a smooth, polished route runner with excellent hands and deceptive top-end speed. Pearsall isn’t overly athletic in terms of short-burst agility, and he’ll need to improve as a pass-catcher in traffic. Still, the pure speed is already there to be a deep threat and a playmaking weapon.




#9 - Xavier Legette, South Carolina

It’s not often we see a bigger-bodied receiver with the top-end speed that Xavier Legette has. At 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, Legette boasts the physical build while playing with toughness and strength as both a pass-catcher and ball-carrier. He also ran a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash, which is noticeable on vertical routes and in the open field. 

This combination of size and speed makes him a mismatch against various types of defenders – similar to Deebo Samuel or A.J. Brown. The big concern surrounding Legette, though, is his late breakout in college. He totaled just 423 receiving yards in his first four years at South Carolina before exploding for nearly 1,300 yards as a fifth-year senior. That could have some teams looking elsewhere, but the 2023 tape doesn’t lie. 

#10 - Xavier Worthy, Texas

Xavier Worthy’s lightning-quick speed was on full display at the NFL Combine when he ran a 4.21 in the 40-yard dash. Worthy is an absolute burner and one of the fastest players in this entire draft class. His pure agility and short-burst speed can translate right away into the NFL as a big-play threat on any touch. 

Outside of that, Worthy does have some obvious knocks. The Texas product has a small build at 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds – which may limit his every-down usage in the modern NFL. Plus, Worthy needs to improve on his raw catching and route running to be more than a one-trick pony.
