From the Experts

Consulting different sports analysts like Bucky Brooks from NFL.com together with Mel Kiper, Jr. of ESPN, and two football analytic sites like Pro Football Focus and The Athletic, they share their insights for the upcoming draft and share their top picks too.

First up, their choice for the wide receiver position and their personal rankings.

According to Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN, he has included five wide receivers in his overall Top 25. In his list, he has included a few of the favorites like Jeudy, Lamb, Ruggs III, Higgins, and lastly, Jefferson. It didn’t have any difference with the Pro Football Focus (PFF) Top 100 list. The only prospects added to PFF’s list are Shenault, Reagor, Aiyuk, Mims, Pittman, Jr., Jauan Jennings, Johnson, Jefferson, K.J. Hill, Hamler, John Hightowe, Van Jefferson.

On the other hand, when looking at Bucky Brooks’ rankings, he has picked Jerry Jeudy as his top pick, followed by CeeDee Lamb of Oklahoma, with Henry Ruggs III in third, Justin Jefferson in fourth, and Laviska Shenault, Jr in rank five. All of their choices have a similarity, showing that these top players have a remarkable playing career that leaves a mark on these analysts.

It is believed that having a good selection for a wide receiver and offensive tackle will have an edge this NFL season, especially to the Minnesota Vikings. Many of these analysts, including the famous Ron Johnson of Fox9, shared that securing one either from the first or second round should be their priority.

This upcoming draft, the Cincinnati Bengals have earned the chance to select the number one overall pick.
