Henry Ruggs III selected No. 12 by Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders have selected Henry Ruggs III with the No. 12 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Many draft analysts expected either Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb to be the first wide receiver off the board, but there was always the possibility that Ruggs could shoot up the board because of his elite speed. Ruggs instantly becomes one of the fastest players in the NFL and is a weapon for Jon Gruden's offense as he and general manager Mike Mayock continue to rebuild the Raiders in their vision.

Henry Ruggs III: Kansas City reportedly wants to trade up for the speedster

According to Peter King, the craziest rumor of the first round is that the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in trading up into the low twenties to select Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs currently sit at Pick No. 32 after winning the Super Bowl last season. To get Ruggs III, it’ll most likely take a leap above Philadelphia at No. 21. The Eagles have said if Ruggs III is still there at 21 that they’d be more than happy to take him. Pairing the Alabama speedster with Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, and Sammy Watkins would make for a scary proposition for any team going up against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs next season.

Henry Ruggs III being 'eyed' closely by the Jets

The Jets are eyeing Alabama WR Henry Ruggs "very closely."

Fantasy Impact

Ralph Vacchiano reports that the Jets are leaning towards drafting an offensive tackle, but the team is eyeing Ruggs very closely. The 21-year-old wide receiver would give quarterback Sam Darnold another weapon to go with Breshad Perriman and Jamison Crowder. Ruggs is projected to go in the first round, and depending on where he lands, could make make an immediate fantasy impact in his rookie season.

Henry Ruggs III runs a 4.27 40-yard dash at the Combine

Henry Ruggs III comes close to breaking the 40-yard dash record at the 2020 NFL Combine.

Fantasy Impact

Ruggs put up a blazing time in the 40-yard dash, but that wasn't his only solid performance of the night. Ruggs also jumped 42 inches in the vertical jump and 131 inches in the broad jump. These are elite numbers and Ruggs may have solidified his stock as a Top-15 draft pick on draft day. Ruggs is much more than just a speed player though and he's going to make an immediate impact in the NFL. His Dynasty stock is up after this performance.
