2024 Draft Rankings

Marvin Harrison Jr. Note
Marvin Harrison Jr. photo 19. Marvin Harrison Jr. WR
Marvin Harrison Jr.'s tenure at Ohio State was marked by rapid development, transitioning from a reserved role as a true freshman to a dominant force by his sophomore year. Although given the talent he was competing with for targets as a freshman in 2021 at Ohio State - Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, Jaxon Smith-Njigba - it's no wonder Harrison couldn't crack the starting lineup. But the 19-year-old finally drew his first start in the Rose Bowl going nuclear to the tune of 6 catches for 71 yards and 3 TDs. Harrison's junior year further solidified his status as a premier talent, earning him a Heisman Trophy finalist nod-a rare feat for a wide receiver. He concluded the season with 67 receptions for 1,211 yards and 14 TDs. That awarded him not only a 44% dominator rating (second-best mark in the class) but the 2023 Fred Biletnikoff Award bestowed to the best WR in college football.

Malik Nabers Note
Malik Nabers photo 42. Malik Nabers WR
Malik Nabers, a junior wide receiver from LSU, made significant waves in the college football scene with his impressive 3-year career. Standing at 6 feet and weighing 200 pounds, Nabers led all college wide receivers during the regular season with 86 receptions for 1,546 yards and 14 touchdowns (34% dominator rating). Over his collegiate career, he accumulated 186 receptions for 2,983 yards and 21 touchdowns, showcasing his consistent development and explosive playmaking ability. His 28% career college dominator rating ranks 3rd among all WRs in the 2024 draft class. But what's more impressive is Nabers' age-adjusted production. Broke out at 18 years old in 2021 as a freshman. A great sign of things to come for him at the next level.

Rome Odunze Note
Rome Odunze photo 53. Rome Odunze WR
Washington's Rome Odunze's four-year career with the Huskies has been marked by consistent improvement, with his junior year in 2022 marking his status as one of college football's best WRs: accumulating 75 catches for 1,145 yards, averaging 15.3 yards per reception, with 7 TDs.
The 2023 season saw further improvement, with the 6-foot-3 and 215-pound WR amassing 81 catches for 1,428 yards and 13 TDs, leading to a spot on the AP first team among other awards en route to a career-high 33% dominator rating. And that was accomplished with him battling through a reported broken rib and punctured lung in late September.
Overall, he finished with the 4th-highest dominator rating in the class at 26%. Also broke out at the early age of 19 years old, during his sophomore campaign.

Brock Bowers Note
Brock Bowers photo 88. Brock Bowers TE
Widely considered one of the best TE prospects to enter the league in recent years, Brock Bowers is expected to be a top-10 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. The 6-4, 230-pound Bowers had at least 56 catches and 714 receiving yards in all three of his seasons at the University of Georgia. He also scored 31 touchdowns in 40 collegiate games, including five rushing touchdowns. Bowers has good speed, terrific hands, and he's an absolute best after the catch. He lacks prototypical TE size, but Bowers plays bigger than he measures. Expect Bowers to make an immediate fantasy impact upon his arrival in the NFL and become fantasy-relevant right away.

Caleb Williams Note
Caleb Williams photo 96. Caleb Williams QB
The odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Caleb Williams figures to be a Day 1 starter for whichever team selects him. After transferring from Oklahoma to USC in 2022, Williams won the Heisman Trophy in his first season with the Trojans, throwing for 42 touchdowns and running for 10 more. Williams was slightly less spectacular in 2023 but still had a fine season for a defensively weak USC squad that asked its quarterback to carry the team all year. Williams has abundant arm talent and mobility. He's a creative quarterback who excels at making plays out of structure. Williams' supporting cast at USC wasn't great, so he probably won't be overwhelmed if he steps into an NFL offense that isn't brimming with talent. There's always a steep learning curve for rookie quarterbacks, but C.J. Stroud just reminded us that a high-quality rookie QB can be fantasy-viable right away.

Jayden Daniels Note

Brian Thomas Jr. Note
Brian Thomas Jr. photo 129. Brian Thomas Jr. WR
Brian Thomas Jr. posted modest numbers in his first two seasons until he exploded onto the scene this past year with a 33% dominator rating at 21 years old.
Standing tall at 6'4" and weighing 205 lbs, Thomas Jr. combines size and speed, evident in his 4.47-second 40-yard dash, to be a formidable boundary X-receiver. Over 38 games in college, he showcased his ability to be a game-changer, culminating in a junior year where he exploded onto the scene with 68 receptions for 1,177 yards and FBS leading 17 touchdowns, averaging an impressive 17.3 yards per catch. The obvious concern are that he's never been the focal point of his team's passing game, which won't get easier at the next level. That's despite a high production he has earned as he boasts the 6th-highest college dominator rating in the class at 24%. And he's competed for targets with another elite WR, Malik Nabers while playing at LSU.

Adonai Mitchell Note
Adonai Mitchell photo 141. Adonai Mitchell WR
As a Longhorn, AD Mitchell posted a breakout season en route to a 32 percent dominator rating with 11 TD scores on 55 receptions. Standing at 6'2″ with a lanky frame at 204 pounds, Mitchell offers an ideal build for an outside receiver. Mitchell reminded me a lot of a lighter Michael Pittman Jr. while watching him on film. At the NFL Combine, measured at 6-foot-2, 205 pounds and had a big day: 4.34-second 40-yard dash (94th percentile), 1.52-second 10-yard split (76th percentile), 39.5" vertical jump (89th percentile), 136" broad jump (98th percentile). His closest comparable per D.J. Chark Jr.

Keon Coleman Note
Keon Coleman photo 153. Keon Coleman WR
At 6'4" and 215 lbs, Keon Coleman's physicality is undeniable, making him a prototypical outside X-receiver. His junior year performance in his first year at Florida State was noteworthy, with 50 receptions, 658 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns, averaging 13.2 yards per reception. Good for a 31% dominator rating. But he broke out officially in his sophomore season the year prior at Michigan State, with 58 catches, 798 yards, and seven touchdowns over 12 games. Hung a 29% dominator rating at just 19 years old. And he did this while competing for targets with an older future NFL star in the making, Jayden Reed. Coleman had more catches, targets, yards and TDs than the future second-round pick, despite being three years YOUNGER than Reed.

Xavier Worthy Note
Xavier Worthy photo 158. Xavier Worthy WR
Xavier Worthy, from the University of Texas, has swiftly become a notable figure in college football due to his remarkable speed and playmaking ability. Standing at an underwhelming 6 feet 1 inch and weighing 172 pounds, Worthy has utilized his athleticism to establish himself as a versatile threat on the field. His notable achievements include a freshman year with 62 receptions for 981 yards and 12 touchdowns, emphasizing his ability to be a game-changer from the get-go. He tied a bow on his Longhorns career with over 1,000 yards and 5 TDs his junior, to capture the second-highest career dominator rating (30%) in the class with the youngest breakout age at 18 years old.

Braelon Allen Note

Ladd McConkey Note
Ladd McConkey photo 165. Ladd McConkey WR
Concerns are his late breakout age at 21 years old. But it was in his third season as a redshirt sophomore (2022) when he totaled 762 receiving yards and seven scores en route to a 20% dominator rating.
Be aware that he's been competing with arguably the best college football tight end of all-time in Brock Bowers for targets since he's been at Georgia. And in 2022, AD Mitchell (another projected 1st-rounder in this year's draft) was also a Bulldog but was firmly behind McConkey on the depth chart. In the two games that McConkey played in 2023 without Bowers healthy, he posted his two highest yardage outputs of final season.
The 6-foot 185-pound WR missed time in his final year at Georgia with injuries, which hurt his final counting stats. But he was still efficient, finishing 8th in the nation in yards per route run (3.26).
Even so, McConkey's game is characterized by his quickness, route polish, and speed rather than physical dominance. His agility in creating separation and his nuanced route-running skills allow him to find space in tight coverage. He will likely be more underrated than most other WRs based on his final-year stats and injuries, but it's unwarranted. He ran a sub 4.4 at the combine and owned collegiate success at a top program like Georgia. McConkey has the tools to transition effectively to the professional level. He's in the conversation to be selected in Round 1 of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Drake Maye Note

Troy Franklin Note
Troy Franklin photo 171. Troy Franklin WR
By his junior season in 2023, Troy Franklin had established himself as a premier college football receiver, amassing nearly 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns, demonstrating not just his ability to find the end zone but also his ceiling with a final season dominator rating of 29% - 17th-highest mark in the 2024 class. Franklin's strengths lie in his elite speed, with a rumored 40-yard dash time of 4.35 seconds, making him a formidable deep threat with 14 catches of 20-plus air yards and the third highest yards per route run (3.32) in the 2024 draft class. However, his relatively light, tall and lanky frame at 6-foot-3 and 183 lbs could pose challenges against physical cornerbacks and in contested catch situations
12 weeks ago
Ricky Pearsall Note
Ricky Pearsall photo 172. Ricky Pearsall WR
Ricky Pearsall broke out at Arizona State in his third season with a 28% dominator rating in 2021, tallying 580 yards and 4 TDs. Jayden Daniels was his starting QB after a 2020 season that was limited to four games due to the pandemic.
After transferring to the SEC, the 6-foot-1 and 189-pound WR continued to succeed over the next two years at Florida, with dominator ratings of 25% from 2022-2023, finishing with 963 receiving yards and 4 TDs in his final season as a Gator.
In 2022, he was Anthony Richardson's No. 1 WR and out-produced future NFL draft pick, Justin Shorter. He averaged nearly 20 yards per catch as the team's slot WR.
On the FantasyPros Football Podcast, our very own Thor Nystrom sat down with Pearsall to talk further about his route-running prowess and "ludicrous" hands.
He's an older prospect, considering he will be 24 years old this season. And the other concern is how he can separate himself from his future NFL teammates when it comes to his target competition. His target share over expectation (0.9%) ranked 36th in the class.
But he turned heads at the NFL Scouting Combine with string metrics across the board. 4.41 40-yard dash, 42″ vertical jump, 129″ broad jump, 4.05 20-yard shuttle (89th percentile) and 6.64 3-cone drill (93rd percentile).
To me, Pearsall's experience as a fifth-year senior and refined game makes him a high-floor player that can get hit the get-go from Day 1, but he may not have any more ceiling to unlock unless he lands with a truly elite NFL passer.

Ja'Lynn Polk Note
Ja'Lynn Polk photo 182. Ja'Lynn Polk WR
Ja'Lynn Polk, the talented No. 2 wide receiver from Washington, made a notable mark in college football with his performances, particularly shining in his junior year. With a height of 6'1″ and weighing in at 203 lbs, Polk has the ideal build for a versatile receiver capable of playing both on the outside and in the slot.
In his time at Washington, Polk demonstrated significant growth, culminating in a senior year after suffering an injury as a sophomore. He recorded impressive stats with 69 receptions for 1,159 yards and nine touchdowns, boasting an average of 16.8 yards per catch. He also started the 2023 season on absolute fire, scoring eight TDs in the first 10 weeks of the season alongside a teammate and fellow 2024 draft-eligible WR, Rome Odunze.
Polk's blend of speed, agility, and size makes him a compelling prospect. His quickness off the line is complemented by his strong hands and body control, enabling him to make challenging catches in traffic. He's extremely well-rounded.
Reminded me of Mohamed Sanu and Tyler Boyd. Other NFL Draft evaluators have compared Polk to Joshua Palmer.

Devontez Walker Note
Devontez Walker photo 222. Devontez Walker WR
Devontez Walker, the North Carolina standout wide receiver, made significant waves in the college football landscape with his explosive play and consistent performances, particularly in his junior year after transferring from Kent State.
Note that he posted bonkers numbers at Kent State with a 50% dominator rating in 2022 with 11 TD and nearly 1,000 receiving yards. That single-season dominator rating was the BEST among any WR in the class.
At 6'2″ and weighing 193 lbs, Walker possesses the agility, speed, and long-stride ideal for a receiver who can excel both on the outside and in the slot, offering versatility to any offensive scheme as a big-play merchant.
Walker showcased his dynamic playmaking ability, culminating in a 2023 junior year that saw him amass impressive statistics with 41 receptions for 699 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 17 yards per catch in just eight games.
He earned a 22% dominator rating for his efforts, but over the games he was eligible to play, Tez Walker hung at a prorated 33% dominator rating with future NFL QB Drake Maye under center. He has a top-5 overall prorated dominator rating among his draft-eligible teammates.
His ability to consistently produce big plays downfield made him a focal point of the Tar Heels' offense and a nightmare for opposing defenses. The downside is he doesn't offer much if anything after the catch.
Shows signs of Marvin Jones in his game. There's an upside in his profile. He's got wheels with 4.36 speed. Also, can jump out of the building: 40.5″ vertical (93rd percentile) and 134″ broad jump (97th percentile). Both were top-5 testing numbers in the 2024 WR class.
Tez Walker screams like a boom-or-bust product that needs a optimal landing spot to avoid being a disappointment.

Odell Beckham Jr. Note
Odell Beckham Jr. photo 230. Odell Beckham Jr. WR
Beckham just turned 31 years old and did not live up to his contract expectations as a Raven in 2023. WR63 overall averaging 6.4 fantasy points per game (WR67). However, he still had his moments averaging 1.8 yards per route run - identical to his averages during his time spent in Cleveland from 2019-2020. Top-30 WR in PFF receiving grade with a top-3 ADOT among WRs as a primary deep threat in the Ravens' offense. And once OBJ got his sea legs under him - after Week 8 - he started to show out more and more. 18th in yards per route run (2.3). He's not completely washed and still can provide some fantasy juice in a favorable offensive environment.

Roman Wilson Note
Roman Wilson photo 232. Roman Wilson WR
At 5'10″ and 185 pounds, Roman Wilson combines athletic prowess with technical skill to make an impact on the field. He truly saved his best for last in Michigan's run for the national championship. His standout senior year saw him amassing 48 receptions for 789 yards and 12 touchdowns, resulting in a 37% dominator rating in 2023. It was the 6th-highest single-season dominator rating in the class.
The obvious concerns are his late breakout age at 22 years old and the fact that he could only muster one legitimate year of production.
Even so, he was turning heads at the most recent Senior Bowl, and his stock has continued to rise after running a sub-4.40 yard-dash at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine.
He's drawn comparisons to Tyler Lockett from the Senior Bowl's own Jim Nagy. No doubt that's related to his deep prowess, given that 53% of his routes run were downfield per Sports Info Solutions.

Xavier Legette Note
Xavier Legette photo 233. Xavier Legette WR
Xavier Legette, the impactful wide receiver from South Carolina, emerged as a notable talent in college football with his commendable performances, particularly highlighted in his SUPER senior year. Standing at 6'3″ and weighing 227 lbs, Legette's physical stature is complemented by his athletic prowess, offering the ideal blend of size and speed required for an outside receiver, making him a formidable presence on the field.
One of Legette's most notable qualities is his strong hands - he doesn't use his body to catch the ball - and ability to secure catches in traffic, showcasing his reliability as a target.
He broke out in his final and fifth year with the Gamecocks, hanging a 35% dominator rating. He posted 1,255 yards and seven touchdowns on 71 receptions.
Entering the league at 23 years old as a one-year wonder raises red flags about Legette's appeal at the next level. The size-speed specimen is enticing, but the lack of consistent production cannot be overlooked.
Easy comps for someone with this size and speed are receivers like D.K. Metcalf, who can often be more situationally dependent as a more "raw" prospect with traits that cannot be taught. Legette's combination of size, catching ability, and consistent playmaking make him an intriguing prospect for the 2024 NFL Draft. He will likely be extremely landing spot dependent as an obvious boom-or-bust WR.

Malachi Corley Note
Malachi Corley photo 241. Malachi Corley WR
Malachi Corley enjoyed multiple seasons of productivity at Western Kentucky, capped off with dominator ratings of 26% and 27% the last two seasons, with 11 receiving TDs in both years.
The former Hilltopper measures in at 5-foot-11 and 210 pounds but saw a lot of his production come through manufactured touches. Corley's calling card is using his thick frame to create yards-after-catch (YAC), using his agility and vision to navigate through defenses and extend plays. He finished second in the FBS in yards after the catch in 2023.
In the 2024 WR draft class, Corley finished second in unique routes run and third in YAC/reception.

Brenden Rice Note
Brenden Rice photo 261. Brenden Rice WR
Brenden Rice, the dynamic wide receiver from USC and son of GOAT WR Jerry Rice, has made a notable impact in the college football arena with his compelling performances. Standing at 6'3″ and weighing 208 lbs, Rice brings an imposing, well-built physical presence to the wide receiver position, coupled with an impressive blend of speed and athleticism that makes him a formidable threat on the field.
He immediately produced from the get-go at age 18, breaking out with a 22% dominator rating in a truncated 2020 season for Colorado, albeit on a very small sample size.
Transferred to USC before the 2022 season. His stats in his senior year were particularly impressive, with 45 receptions for 791 yards and 12 touchdowns, boasting an average of 17.6 yards per catch. He finished 5th in target rate above expectation as Caleb Williams' No. 1 WR. Although a 25% final season dominator rating is underwhelming compared to the remainder of the class.
Josh Palmer is my comparable NFL WR for him, as I think he will only go as far as his QB, offense, situation, etc. will get him. Although I'll admit, some of his size, hand work off the line of scrimmage looked like a young, spry Michael Thomas. And there's no denying that he can feast in the red zone - 19% of his catches have been TDs (21 total).

Jalen McMillan Note
Jalen McMillan photo 264. Jalen McMillan WR
Jalen McMillan broke out in his second season at Washington at 20 years old. Compiled a 19% dominator rating which set the stage for what was coming for him in 2022 when he had his best college season with 1,098 receiving yards and 9 TDs - good for a 25% dominator rating despite competing for targets with future NFL WRs Rome Odunze and Ja'Lynn Polk. He led the Huskies in targets and catches in 2022.
Alas, he could not sustain that success into this past season as the No. 3 option in Washington's pass attack given his injury and lack of usage downfield (9.6 Adot) in a vertical passing attack.
It won't get easier to command targets at the next level. But the fact that McMillan showed he's capable of rising to the occasion of elite target competition bodes well for him should he end up on a weak WR depth chart.
He's a strong route runner with an early breakout age. McMillan has played over 89% of the snaps from the slot over the last two seasons.
Odds are that one of McMillan or Polk will perform WELL above expectation at the next level, given how they likely hurt each other's statistics the past two seasons with Washington's spread offense.

Jacob Cowing Note
Jacob Cowing photo 279. Jacob Cowing WR
At under 5-foot-9 and 168 pounds soaking wet (1st percentile), Jacob Cowing may not possess the towering frame of some of his contemporaries, but what he lacks in size, he more than compensates for with his speed, agility, and precise/nuanced route-running, making him a constant threat to opposing defenses.
Because he dominated production at Arizona and his previous stop at UTEP. 32% career dominator rating ranks No. 1 in the class.
42% dominator rating in 2020 and 41% dominator rating in 2021 were elite numbers he posted while was a member of the UTEP Miners. He represented a top-5 best single-season mark. And Cowing also delivered early on in his college career, breaking out at age 18 in 2019.
His senior year was particularly notable, with Cowing amassing 89 receptions for 868 yards and 13 touchdowns, averaging a remarkable 9.8 yards per catch. His ability to stretch the field and create after the catch has been a hallmark of his college career.
Unfortunately, Cowing could not boost his stock at the Senior Bowl. He suffered an injury. Hopefully, this is not a sign of things to come for the undersized WR, who might be pigeonholed into the slot at the next level.
Definitely K.J. Hamler-esque. Especially given his size at 168 pounds. That's his official weight from the combine, slightly less than his previously listed weight at 175 pounds. But Cowing has decent long speed with sub 4.4 wheels, but that's too be expected. Nothing else about his drills pop off the page.
36-inch vertical (55th percentile). The 119-inch broad jump was below average (35th percentile). The 3-cone drill was at 7.02 (38th percentile). The 20-yard shuttle was listed at 4.32 (30th percentile).

Jermaine Burton photo 315. Jermaine Burton WR
Jermaine Burton took forever to "break out" until his senior year at 22 years old with a 30% dominator rating as a member of the Crimson Tide.
He transferred from the University of Georgia over his first two seasons to Alabama his final two collegiate seasons.
Although he did post a very serviceable 19% dominator rating his first year at Bama (essentially a breakout), with 677 yards and 7 TDs.
And Burton also produced decently during his time in Georgia, despite facing a myriad of tough competition. 16% dominator rating in 2020 as a true freshman (19 years old) while competing for targets with George Pickens. During his second season as a Bulldog, Burton was second on the team in receiving yards behind only Brock Bowers - despite competing for targets with the aforementioned tight end, Ladd McConkey and Adonai Mitchell.
He was also used exclusively downfield during his final year, with a 20.2 aDOT (3rd-highest in the FBS) in 2023. And zero drops.
Burton also led all WRs in the 2024 class and finished 12th overall in yards per route run. Burton possesses and explosive skillset with 4.45 wheels and jumps in the 82nd percentile-plus.
He's a big play waiting to happen, but likely won't command a hyper-intense target share at the next level. He's got two games on his college resume with double-digit targets. He also has some off-field issue concerns that could hurt his draft capital in the real-life NFL.

Javon Baker couldn't sniff the field at Alabama (he wanted the ball), so he transferred to UCF during the last two seasons of his college tenure. He enjoyed two strong seasons with the Knights, posting dominator ratings of 23% and 31%.
The 6-foot-1 and 202-pound WR was a big-play savant, owning the second-highest yards per reception (21.9) nationally in 2023. He ended the season 5th in yards per route run among the 2024 WR draft class (3.21).
Reminds me a ton of DeVonta Smith from a route-running and body control perspective. But Baker has more size and YAC to his game.

The 5-foot-8 WR thrived at the East-West Shrine practices. Finished the 2023 season as PFF's second-highest graded WR (92.4). Malik Washington posted crazy numbers in his final and lone year at Virginia, after transferring from Northwestern. 47% dominator rating with 9 TDs and nearly 1,400 receiving yards for the 191-pound svelt WR. His 38% target share led all WRs in the 2024 draft class. His 2023 season was one of the best in the class. And his ascension continued into the testing with him posting impressive jumping numbers in both the broad and vertical leaps. No. 1 in the vertical jump in the class at 42.5″ (98th percentile). He may be short, but he is so stout and rocked up physically.

Johnny Wilson Note
Johnny Wilson photo 345. Johnny Wilson WR
At an imposing 6'6″ and weighing 231 lbs, Johnny Wilson is a physical specimen who brings a unique set of attributes to the wide receiver position.
Wilson began his collegiate career at Arizona State before transferring to Florida State, where he truly flourished. His towering frame and catch radius made him a favorite target on contested catches. In his first season with the Seminoles, he racked up 43 receptions for 897 yards and five touchdowns for a 22% dominator rating, showcasing his ability as a constant threat to opposing defenses. The big concern is his late breakout age of 21, which came in 2022. He posted a 22% dominator rating but took a step back this past season with just two TDs after Keon Coleman took over as the No. 1 target for Florida State. Still, somebody will take a shot at his rare size, hoping they can recapture his 2022 form. Not to mention, his target rate above expectation (14.7%) ranked first in the 2024 WR class. He was targeted more often than he should have been - likely due to factors relating to his massive catch radius. When he's covered, he's still "open." Many NFL teams have expressed interest in converting Wilson to tight end, which would likely be a positive for his fantasy outlook.

Jamari Thrash Note
Jamari Thrash photo 374. Jamari Thrash WR
Jamari Thrash posted a top-10 career dominator rating in his draft class at 24%. A lot of that can be attributed to his marquee 2022 season at Georgia State, where Thrash posted a 43% dominator rating with over 1,100 yards and 7 TDs on 62 catches. That single-season rating was the third highest in the class.
The 6-foot and 188-pound WR transferred to Louisville this past season and caught 62 passes for the second straight season with a 26% dominator rating to boot. The jump in competition did not slow down Thrasher, who has been producing since he turned 20 years old as a sophomore at Georgia State.
He tied a bow on his college career with a top-10 dominator rating in the class (24%). He's an older prospect at 23 years old, but that might help him hit the ground running as he makes another competitive leap to the NFL.
Slippery after the catch and a savvy route runner are two of his most evident traits when you watch him on film. 12th in YAC/reception and 7th in broken/missed tackle rate in 2023. Finished 8th in the class in both target share (28%) and target rate above expectation (+8.1%).
He is particularly adept at gaining yards after the catch, using his quickness to evade defenders. His acceleration off the line of scrimmage and ability to change direction swiftly make him a challenging assignment for opposing defensive backs.
However, his vertical game is lacking and needs more consistency. Four drops on deep balls last season. And just 30% of his routes were deemed "deep" per Sports Info Solutions (25th).

Tahj Washington caught 13 of his 15 deep targets in 2023 (87%). Perfect passer rating generated on deep targets from Caleb Williams.
Broke out at an early age in 2020 at Memphis while competing for targets with Calvin Austin III, before transferring to USC the last three seasons. 5-foot-10 and 174 pounds, he is definitely on the smaller side of this WR class. Posted his most productive season this past year, with over 1,000 yards and 8 TDs (23% dominator rating). Counting stats were not elite, but he was absurdly efficient. Exceptional route runner, slot player and useful after the catch. Second in the class in both YAC/reception and broken missed tackle per reception.

Ainias Smith first burst onto the scene in 2020, posting a 27% dominator rating at just 19 years old while leading the Aggies in receiving yards in a pandemic-shortened season. He also carried the ball 49 times for 293 yards and 4 TDs as he also started at running back.
Smith sustained his success in his third season but got hurt in 2022. He was also arrested in the summer of 2022 for a DUI, possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying of a weapon. The charges were dropped.
The 5-foot-9 and 190-pound WR bounced back in his final year in 2023, amassing a career-high 795 receiving yards on 53 catches with two TDs (15% dominator rating). His broken tackle per catch (2) ranked second in the 2024 WR class.
He will turn 23 years old this year.
Smith also has experience as a return specialist throughout his entire college career including last season. He had an 82-yard punt return TD in 2023. Led the SEC in punt return yards in 2023.
If all the red flags are behind him, Smith's versatility will surely be attractive to NFL teams given his diverse skill set as a slot WR. Not the fastest guy by any means, but absolutely dynamic in the open field. One team that has met with Smith the most during the pre-draft process is the Philadelphia Eagles.
