The 2020 Wide Receiver Class Is About to Get Much Better Soon

The 2020 NFL Draft class had the most depth at the wide receiver position in recent memory. If you don’t believe that, check the receipts. A record 13 wide receivers were taken in the first two rounds of the draft. The top-end talent that was seen by NFL general managers and coaches from this most recent draft has been put on full display this year.

First you have Minnesota Vikings rookie Justin Jefferson, who ranks fifth in the league in receiving yardage (537 yards).

Next you have Dallas Cowboys stud CeeDee Lamb who has continued his tremendous after the catch ability despite leaving the University of Oklahoma.

There is also Pittsburgh Steelers rookie Chase Claypool, who torched the Philadelphia Eagles two Sundays ago with a 4 touchdown performance.

I could continue listing names until I am blue in the face. There is Tee Higgins, Henry Ruggs III, Brandon Aiyuk, Jerry Juedy, and many more.

Still, the crazy part about this rookie wide receiver class is that it is close to getting even better. According to reports, New York Jets rookie Denzel Mims is expected to make his NFL debut this Sunday, and Eagles rookie Jalen Reagor is close to returning from a UCL tear in his thumb.

Mims was selected out of Baylor with the 59th pick in the second round. His combination of speed and size makes him a really intriguing prospect.

Reagor on the other hand has already played in two games this season. The former TCU Horned Frog has shown off his big play ability already, and adding him to a crippled Philadelphia receiving core could be just the help they need to take control of the lowly NFC East.

So even though the 2020 NFL Draft has already showed us the great receivers it contained, reinforcements are on their way. The two could add to an already impressive list of players, creating even more of a belief that the 2020 class of receivers could be one of the greatest of all-time.
