1.05 Garrett Wilson (WR – NYJ)
Garrett Wilson‘s yards after the catch ability will be a godsend for Zach Wilson. His production profile against top competition at Ohio State is impeccable. He’s been top 30 in yards per route run in each of the last two seasons (minimum 50 targets, per PFF). This team needed to add talent around their young franchise quarterback, and this accomplishes that goal. Elijah Moore and Wilson give Zach Wilson a versatile pairing to pepper with targets. Wilson’s talent isn’t in question, but his dynasty ceiling could be capped unless Zach Wilson can take a step forward in year two.

2.05 David Bell (WR – CLE)
David Bell might be my favorite WR to draft from Day 3 of the real NFL draft. He has an awesome landing spot with the Cleveland Browns and quarterback Deshaun Watson . The Browns understand his limitations as an athlete, but his strengths as an underneath wide receiver can help him produce after the catch. Bell finished third in the FBS in receiving yards on the outside (1,097), second in total forced missed tackles (25), and 10th in PFF receiving grade (86.9) among his draft class. He’s a perfect fit alongside prototypical No. 1 WR Amari Cooper and the speedy duo of Donovan Peoples-Jones/Anthony Schwartz.

3.05 Matt Corral (QB – CAR)
Among the quarterbacks drafted in the third round in the NFL Draft, Matt Corral could have the easiest path to playing time in year one. Sam Darnold flopped as a reclamation project last season in Carolina. Matt Rhule is firmly parked on the hot seat at the moment. At best, rolling it back with Darnold in 2022 feels like a shaky proposition. Rhule needs this team to take a step forward and possibly contend (or make) for the playoffs to add some length to his leash. Corral has his question marks with erratic deep accuracy and residing from an RPO and first read-heavy scheme at Ole Miss. If he can show even a glimmer of promise in camp or the preseason, Corral could be under center Week 1 instead of the long-time Ghostbuster’s intern, Darnold.

4.05 Danny Gray (WR – SF)
Danny Gray got his start at the junior college level playing at Blinn College before spending the last two years at SMU. In 2019, Gray led the team with 54 receptions for 877 yards and eight touchdowns. He totaled 958 all-purpose yards. As a true freshman, Gray registered 15 catches for 409 yards and six touchdowns. The 6-foot and 186-lb wide receiver finished his juco career averaging 18.6 yards per reception. His big-play ability earned him a spot on SMU’s football team where he showed out big time in 2021. He finished fifth in the class in yards after the catch per reception (8.5). Gray also boasted a 19% target share and 24% air yards share. With elite speed – 4.33 40-yard dash – separation skills and experience playing out wide, Gray fits the archetype as a Day 3 player that could easily outperform his draft capital. Vertical prowess is a common trait among late-round WRs that make noise as rookies. He looks a lot like Nelson Agholor on tape – drops included. His 12.5% drop rate is the 7th-worst mark in the class among WRs with at least 50 targets last season.
