WR - HOU
Expert NoteView More Notes
Xavier Hutchinson hit the ground running in his first year at Iowa State, hauling 64 balls for 771 receiving yards and four TDs. The former JUCO star from Blinn College - where he played two seasons with future 49ers 3rd-rounder Danny Gray - was 20 years old in his first season as a Cyclone, so the expectation was that he would be ready for the increased competition. Hutchinson continued to deliver productive seasons for two more years with the Cyclones, posting dominator ratings of 26% and 34% to conclude his college career.
The 6-foot-2 and 207-pound behemoth finished 2022 with 107 catches (third in the nation) while playing 70% of his snaps out wide. No player in the FBS saw more targets in 2022 than the 22-year-old Hutchinson (161). His 8.9 receptions per game and target share (35%) also led his 2023 WR class.
Hutchinson's age (23) is definitely a concern as he looks to make the leap to the NFL. But his football experience and usage suggest if the talent is there, he can make an immediate impact.
