Carter Donnick’s 2018 NFL Draft WR Rankings

Pick your flavor.  That’s essentially what this WR class has to offer. Full of dynamic slot types, perimeter red-zone targets, and a few core all-around prospects, this pass-catching group is unlike any I have seen. The deepest I’ve scouted, possibly of any position since I started scouting, this squad of wideouts doesn’t have a star at the top but more than makes up for it with its depth. Time and time again while constructing these rankings I would shift players up, down and around, as the gap between an abundance of players was often separated by the smallest of margins. That’s how close many of these prospects truly are. Enough talking. Let’s get to the rankings!

The Top 20

  1. Antonio Callaway, Florida

The Skinny: Before everyone gets up in arms….hear me out.  Antonio Callaway has brutal off-field issues, and that’s sugar-coating it. Kicked off of Florida for an abundance of team violations, Callaway may not even be drafted, but make no mistake, as he’s the most talented WR in this class. Truthfully, it’s also not all that close. The best talent at the wideout position I’ve seen since Sammy Watkins, Antonio simply has the entire package. A nimble route-runner with a stocky build and legit 4.4 speed, he was able to put on a show despite Florida’s putrid QB situation game in and game out. It’s not easy to torch Minkah Fitzpatrick, the top DB in this class, but Callaway did just that when he played the Crimson Tide product. With extreme fluidity and a tenacious swagger on the field, it’s not hard to envision Antonio Brown when plugging in the tape. Yes, that may be crazy talk, but Callaway is truly a blessed player. In the end, his only obstacle may just be himself.

Player Comparison: Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers

  1. Calvin Ridley, Alabama

The Skinny: Calvin Ridley has been the subject of numerous different takes in the media, ranging from All-Pro to draft bust. I’m here to set the record straight.  An uber-talented Crimson Tide product, Ridley is the most polished route-runner in this class. Running with extreme fluidity, Ridley’s initial burst off the line is simply exceptional. Done no favors at Alabama due to his horrific QB play (I’m looking at you Jalen Hurts), Ridley still managed to put up terrific stat-lines as their only threat in the passing game.

Yes, Ridley has a thin frame. Yes, he didn’t test great at the combine. Ultimately, I’m not worried about these minor flaws at all. A 4.4 burner, in the end, Ridley will make the perfect complementary WR at the next level. I don’t think he can necessarily handle WR1 duties, which limits his upside, but Ridley is the safest WR in this class. He’s well worth a late first or early second round pick, and anyone who says otherwise is plain wrong.

Player Comparison: Stefon Diggs, Minnesota Vikings

  1.  Richie James, Middle Tennessee State

The Skinny:  Who? That’s right; you may have never heard of him. He won’t be drafted on Day 1, or potentially even Day 2, but the most electrifying playmaker in this class happens to go by the name of Richie James. A gritty SOB on the football field, Richie is the most versatile wideout in the draft.  A star out of the backfield and in the screen game, James is a make-you-miss, and he’s gone type of player. A nuanced route-runner, he also shows the fight and ability to win deep, unlike the majority of players at his minuscule stature. Because he’s 5’10, Richie may not ever be a legit number 1 option, but that’s more than fine. His stats look brutal this year, which has caused him to fly under-the-radar, but they couldn’t be more deceiving. Injured the entire year, Richie was never healthy, and to evaluate him you must view this past season as a write-off. Look back to his 2015, and 2016 tape and Richie had the best stats of any WR in this class. Trying to find the next Tyreek Hill? James is your guy.

Player Comparison:  T.Y Hilton, Indianapolis Colts

  1.  Courtland Sutton, Southern Methodist

The Skinny:  The WR with the most potential in this class, Sutton is a tricky evaluation. A 6-4, 220-pound behemoth, Courtland has the go-up and get-it ability that every team craves.  A blessed athlete, he carries his size extremely well and is more fluid than most 190 pounders. Taking over games at SMU, Sutton was unguardable at times, posting up on smaller DB’s making them look silly in the process. Despite Sutton’s many strengths, he also has considerable flaws. Raw as can be, Sutton’s route-running and technique need significant work. He’s an incredibly young player, so with the right coaching this can certainly be addressed, but is important nonetheless. Additionally, Courtland isn’t a natural hands catcher. Fighting the ball into his body, this is a big issue, as a player who prides himself on his contested catch ability must be able to come down with balls. Unlike his breaking, this may not be fixable. Add on his lethargic tendencies at the line of scrimmage, and Sutton makes for the prototypical boom or bust prospect. Still, with his size and tantalizing talent, a pick in the second round is a smart decision. After all, if he becomes the next Brandon Marshall, teams will be kicking themselves for not taking him sooner.

Player Comparison:  Brandon Marshall, Free Agent

  1. D.J. Moore, Maryland

The Skinny: The top WR on most draft boards, I don’t want to give the impression I don’t like D.J Moore.That couldn’t be any farther from the truth.  A versatile YAC monster, Moore has a stocky build and an elusiveness to his game that makes him the perfect complimentary WR at the next level. Stuck with abysmal QB play at Maryland, D.J made the most out of every opportunity, using simple screenplays and taking them 70 yards.  Testing like a freak at the combine, Moore is the definition of explosive, and his broad jump and vertical scores were out of this world.

A Golden Tate-clone, many fail to realize because of his style of play that Moore has great size at 6’1, and although I want him to show more of it, can win jump ball and contested catches. He didn’t have the chance to do much of it at the collegiate level. In conclusion, like Calvin Ridley, I don’t know if Moore can be a real number 1 receiver, but he’s certainly a high upside pass-catcher. I wanted to rank him higher, but the class is simply so close in talent that there was no room.

  1.  Anthony Miller, Memphis

The Skinny: Arguably my favorite wideout in the class, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more tenacious and hard-working player than Anthony Miller. An out-of-this-world route-runner, Miller varies speed and uses patience and nimble feet to expose opposing DB’s. Putting up monstrous stats this past season, Anthony is a reception and touchdown monster and put up the best tape of any WR in this class. For 5’11 he’s also surprisingly prepared to go up and get contested balls, not only because of his natural hands but also because of that aforementioned “dog” mentality. A great athlete, Miller gives a lot of Steve Smith vibes when watching the tape. A former low talent recruit, Miller, simply makes the most of every opportunity and plays every snap at his hardest. Ultimately his upside is limited compared a lot of other receiver prospects, but don’t let such a deep class make you forget about this Memphis product.

Player Comparison:  Steve Smith, Retired

  1.  Christian Kirk, Texas A&M

The Skinny: If you want a pass catcher who can come in from Day 1 and contribute, Christian Kirk is your guy. A versatile gadget piece, Kirk is a returner, receiver, and even runner who was essentially the entire Texas A&M’s offense over the past couple of seasons. Although force-fed targets, which is a definite concern, Kirk shows extreme fluidity and smoothness in his game that is hard to match. Polished in every sense of the word, Kirk’s technique is already near flawless, and his physical traits and versatility are very impressive. Stocky for a little guy, Christian has sort of a baby, Odell Beckham, like build, combining terrific speed with solid tackle breaking and yards after catch ability. Although Christian can get covered up and smothered against physical and talented DB’s, as was the case versus Minkah Fitzpatrick, he’s a high character, blue-chip prospect. Force-fed targets also lead to Jarvis Landry type concerns, but Kirk is a much better athlete and possesses all of Landry’s top traits such as intelligence and grit.  Some team will fall in love, and a first-round selection is certainly not out of the question for the Aggie product.

Player Comparison:  Julian Edelman WR New England Patriots

  1.  Keke Coutee, Texas Tech

The Skinny: By now you can probably see I love shifty and versatile pass catchers, and Keke Coutee is no exception. The flashiest receiver not named Richie James in this draft, Coutee is an extremely undersized prospect that uses his exceptional lateral agility and burst to make defenders look silly in the open field. A 4.4 speedster, Coutee comes from a Texas Tech offense where he put up monstrous stats and was used in multiple ways, whether it be on screens, deep routes, or jet sweeps. Not your next Tavon Austin, Coutee has the same explosion, but is a much better route-runner and plays with a toughness that comes across on every single. A highlight reel waiting to happen, he was also Patrick Mahomes favorite target with the Raiders, and his presence alone causes fear in a defense. He doesn’t have great contested catching ability, nor a jump-ball ability, but that isn’t at all where Coutee wins in the first place. Ultimately, I can see Keke even playing a hybrid ball-carrier role at the next level, and he’s the type of versatile athlete every team should crave.

Player Comparison:  Curtis Samuel, Carolina Panthers

  1.  Dante Pettis, Washington

The Skinny: Dante Pettis is a very polarizing prospect despite his safe and versatile nature.  The record holder for most punt return touchdowns in college football history, Pettis can make an immediate impact on special teams at the next level. A blessed athlete, Pettis will never run the fastest 40, but his pure explosion numbers such as the Broad Jump, Vertical, and 3-Cone are out of this world good. I might catch some flack for this, but I honestly believe he is a better athlete than his fellow and former Husky teammate John Ross. Like Christian Kirk, Pettis can get handled by man coverage at times but is such a smooth and fluid player.  Despite being 6’1, Pettis’ 190-pound thin frame also gives me some concern and is the reasoning behind some injuries and press coverage concerns. However, there is no denying his pure talent, all-around ability, and route-running ability. Brad Kelly, a fantastic WR evaluator, even has Pettis as his number 1 wideout in the entire class, and although I disagree with a ranking that high, I fully understand. He’s going to make an NFL team very happy on Day 2 of the draft.

Player Comparison:  T.J Houshmandzadeh, Retired

  1. D.J Chark, LSU

The Skinny: Built like Tarzan, D.J Chark is a curious study with tantalizing upside. Possessing long strides that make him look like a gazelle, the former Tiger product is an absolute burner and is the fastest WR in this class, having run a 4.38 at the combine.  Even more impressive, he did so with a chiseled 6’3 199-pound frame. Although he lacked in stats, Chark more than made up for it with big plays during his time with LSU, and it’s hard to fault him for lack of production due to being in such a stagnant offense. There is no denying Chark is extremely raw, especially when it comes to route running, and is only used to simple slants and deep fly’s. His transition to the NFL will be an extremely tough one but simply put speed and size kill. Just so happens he has both.

Player Comparison:  Tyrell Williams, Los Angeles Chargers

  1.  Jaleel Scott, New Mexico St.

The Skinny: You may have never heard of Jaleel Scott, but the 6’6 behemoth is well worth your time. A popular sleeper in this class, Scott does not move like your prototypical 6’6 prospect, and I mean that as a huge compliment. Fluid and agile, Scott can accelerate and run routes like a much smaller player, which is very similar to Courtland Sutton in this regard. Although he doesn’t have quite the same post up ability as Sutton, he has much better hands and is a more polished route-runner compared to the Mustang. In fact, I’d even go as far as to say he is the best-contested catcher in this class, as Scott came down with literally everything at the collegiate level. Of course, he may not experience that same success at the next level, but the Aggie is plenty fast, having run a 4.56, and doesn’t have to worry about separation like your usual “big” wideout. Although understandably raw, I might also go as far as to say Scott has the most potential of any WR in this class. He’s that good folks.

Player Comparison:

  1.  Trey Quinn, Southern Methodist

The Skinny:  We finally have a white receiver, people!  All jokes aside, on the surface Trey Quinn looks like every single New England Patriots wideout of all time. A quick and nimble route-running extraordinaire, Quinn is a prototypical third down safety blanket.  Unlike your stereotypical white wideout, Quinn is 6’0 and has blazing 4.4 speed. A player who strives in the tight areas, Quinn is a guy I simply can’t help but love. A former high recruit at LSU, he transferred to Southern Methodist just for this past season and was the better wideout in both play and production compared to the more highly touted Courtland Sutton.  Ultimately, Trey might have a capped ceiling but will be a 3rd or even 2nd receiving option for a long darn time.

Player Comparison:  Brandon Stokley, Retired

  1.  Auden Tate, Florida State

The Skinny: I feel extremely bad for Auden Tate. Despite being one of the most talented and having as much upside as any pass-catcher in this class, he gets the shaft. A ton of this has to do with an awful 40 time at the combine, running upwards of 4.7. Though it may sound crazy, I’m not too concerned about this. Tate’s game speed is faster than this indicates, and as a contested catcher, you will be hard-pressed to find a better prospect.  With arguably the strongest hands in this class, Tate is a red-zone monster and possesses all the traits to be a jump-ball monster at the next level. It’s a shame Tate got injured this past season because he was putting up major stat-lines before it. In his first game against Alabama early in the year, Tate put on a show. He doesn’t have Courtland Sutton’s potential, but the Seminole product is essentially a more polished and better hands version of Sutton, albeit less athletic.  This class is so deep that really nothing separates Tate from being as high as 8 on my board. The 40 time dropped him, but he has a chance of being one of the better value picks in the entire draft if he falls far enough.

Player Comparison:  Devin Funchess, Carolina Panthers

  1.  Deon Cain, Clemson

The Skinny:  If I was, to sum up Deon Cain in one word that word would be frustrating.  Built like Dez Bryant, Cain has that type of potential. Unfortunately, like Bryant, he also shares some of his downfalls.  A gifted athlete, Cain is a physical and intimidating wideout with 4.4 speed, which is all the more impressive considering his size. Even more talented than former teammate Mike Williams, a 2017 Top 10 pick, Cain has all the tools of a future star.  Unfortunately, his effort and hands tell a different story. Looking disinterested at times, Cain struggles to keep his head in the game, which raises serious red flags. Even more so, Cain does not have natural hands. Often fighting the ball, Cain makes some egregious drops in wide open situations, and I doubt this issue can be fixed in its entirety.  Deon does a fantastic job getting open, which isn’t indicative through his stats due to the millions of times his QB Kelly Bryant has flat out missed him, so Cain certainly still has translatable traits. He’s simply a boom or bust type of prospect.

Player Comparison:  Dez Bryant, Free Agent

  1.  Tre’Quan Smith WR Central Florida

The Skinny: Continuing through the narrowly separated WR group we have UCF wideout Tre’Quan Smith.  An intriguing study, Smith only burst on to the season this past year but made a huge splash as stud signal-caller McKenzie Milton’s go-to target.  Strong and sturdy, the 6’2 Smith has unbelievable leaping ability, and a tremendous vertical. Possibly the best jumper in the class, he’s still raw, but actually, a more advanced route-runner than you might think, showing off his skills with a very impressive Senior Bowl performance. Ultimately I get a lot of Josh Doctson vibes, and although Doctson’s career hasn’t panned out to this point, there is no denying he’s a unique talent.

Player Comparison:  Josh Doctson, Washington Redskins

  1.  Equanimeous St. Brown, Notre Dame

The Skinny:  Like Deon Cain, St. Brown is another frustrating prospect to evaluate, and it isn’t just because of his ridiculous name.  Purely judging of talent, St. Brown is arguably the best receiver in this class. It shouldn’t be natural for a 6’5 person to move and accelerate the way he does, much fewer run routes the way St. Brown can.  A thin and lanky giant, St. Brown has A.J Green type potential and was a consensus 5 Star All-American recruit coming out of high school. In most classes that would alone assure you a spot as a Top 5 WR prospect, but in such a deep class, his question marks cause a fall. Surprisingly, most people are concerned about the production with Equanimeous, but that is the least of my worries.  After all, St. Brown got plenty open. It was horrid QB play that caused subpar stats. There is no doubting the Fighting Irish product needs plenty of work, especially when it comes to hand fighting and aggressiveness. Too often I see St. Brown not engaging with the defense, and when matched against physical press coverage he gets completely wiped out. This is a massive concern, as although he has a thin frame, I want to see more “dog” mentality out of him.  Additionally, for such a tall receiver he doesn’t play that big, as he’s much more of a finesse player as opposed to a go-up and get it one. This is fine on the surface, but because of it, he lacks an identity. Combining all this and you get a polarizing prospect, albeit with terrific value late on Day 2. After all, you may just be selecting A.J Green 2.0.

Player Comparison:  Martavis Bryant, Pittsburgh Steelers

  1.  Deontay Burnett, Southern California

The Skinny:  Deontay Burnett won’t be confused for flashy. He’s not big. He’s not overly fast, and truth be told he’s not all that talented. However, I can guarantee you that there isn’t a more dependable pass-catcher than the former Trojan.  Sam Darnold’s go-to target at USC, Burnett has a knack for finding open spaces in the defense, which is something that truly can’t be taught. Never giving up on a play, he was the perfect fit for Darnold’s scrambling ability, as Burnett adjusts his route to fit the thrower. A smart route-runner, Burnett knows how to vary his speeds to confuse opposing defensive backs.  Bailing Darnold out time and time again, Burnett has also made some of the most fantastic diving grabs you’ll find and possibly has the best hands of anyone in the class. Once again, he tested poorly, and he’s not a great athlete, but Burnett is about as safe as you can get. Watching is tape was simply enjoyable.

Player Comparison:  Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams

  1.  Troy Pelletier, Lehigh

The Skinny: A Small-Schooler I watched while doing an FCS project, I like to describe Pelletier’s game in one way; silky smooth.  An impeccable technician and crafty route-runner, Troy has a fluid game and moves extremely well for his 6-3 size. Putting up great production it’s hard not to see Cooper Kupp all over again when watching the Lehigh product.  Although Pelletier accounts for the occasional concentration drop and shouldn’t be confused with a deep threat, he’s the type of dependable pass-catcher every QB craves on those third and manageable situations. Ultimately I see him carving out a nice niche as a 2nd or 3rd receiver at the next level.

Player Comparison:  Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams

  1.  Michael Gallup, Colorado State

The Skinny:  Michael Gallup isn’t your prototypical flashy eye-popping wideout prospect.  Rather he’s a rock solid all-around type with no real holes. In a wideout group lacking this type of dependable player, it’s extremely refreshing. Lower on my board than most, I don’t want to give off the impressions I don’t like Gallup, as that couldn’t be any farther from the truth.  After all, he’s a player ready to contribute from Day 1, put up fantastic production, and played strong in games vs. top competition such as Alabama. I’ll stress it again that it’s such a deep class that without a special trait, Gallup falls down the board. After all, this means his upside is limited.  He’ll be a darn good 2nd or 3rd receiving option at the next level, and I can all but guarantee that, but the lack of a wow ability proves he’ll never become a star. That is completely fine but means his value is increased at a later stage.

Player Comparison:  Mohamed Sanu, Atlanta Falcons

  1.  Cedrick Wilson, Boise State

The Skinny: Similar to Gallup, Cedrick Wilson is a personal favorite of mine who offers that same high floor, albeit with a lankier frame and more of a knack for getting open.  Not an overly great athlete nor all that big, I have no clue how Wilson creates separation the way he does, but the truth is that the Boise State product is always available. Cedrick took over games playing on Boise’s blue turf during his collegiate career, and a game vs. Washington State in 2016 was a prime example of this. Scoring 3 touchdowns and logging 150 plus yards, Wilson was unstoppable, despite not doing anything overly special. This essentially sums up the thinly framed wideout.  The epitome of an underdog, in all honesty, I want Wilson a lot higher on this list, but just couldn’t find the right spot for him.

Player Comparison:  Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams

The Prime Overdrafted Candidates

  1.  James Washington, Oklahoma State

The Skinny: An extremely productive college player having won the Biletnikoff, most instantly assume James Washington is one of the top WR’s in this class, but that certainly isn’t the case. That’s not to say I still don’t like Washington and find value within his game. After all, he’s a feisty and aggressive pass-catcher with terrific hands and a fun prospect to evaluate. He’s also able to come down with a ton of jump-balls, and if I had a penny for every time, he bailed out his quarterback Mason Rudolph I’d be rich. In the end, he excels at what he does, but unfortunately what Washington does is limited, especially when factoring in his weaknesses. Although he’s a great straight-line athlete, James struggles with fluidity and is noticeably stiff.  Additionally, he’s an extremely raw route-runner and only ran slants, posts, and fly’s at OKST. Benefiting from off-coverage 10 yards away, a lot of his stats were inflated due to playing in the Big 12, and he struggles against press coverage as a result. Ultimately the odds are stacked against him, and although I still like his game, there is no way Washington is a Top 10 WR for me, especially in the deepest wideout class I’ve scouted.

Player Comparison:  Quincy Enunwa, New York Jets

Just Outside Top 30:  Daesean Hamilton, Penn State

The Skinny: Like James Washington, Daesean Hamilton is a wideout getting a lot of buzz.  Once again, I like him as a prospect, but in such a deep WR class his limited upside and flaws stick out like a sore thumb.  A thinly framed pass-catcher, Hamilton is a player I have a hard time envisioning on the outside at the next level. Never to be confused with a jump-ball receiver, Hamilton’s niche is as a crafty route-runner. He does that well, but I have a hard time seeing him creating that same separation at the next level. A lot of people like to point to Calvin Ridley as a similar player, and he is, but he’s also got infinitely more burst and explodes out of cuts in ways Hamilton wishes he could. Hamilton is a nifty-niche player, and that’s nice, but it’s not Day 2 nice and certainly not Top 5 WR nice. I know I’ll catch a lot of flack for this evaluation, specifically by WR guru Brad Kelly, but it’s a stance I’m willing to take.

Player Comparison:  Eli Rogers, Pittsburgh Steelers
