The 2019 NFL Draft is a week away. The Philadelphia Eagles are constructing their draft board. We’re naming the top ten wide receiver prospects.
Mock drafts are everywhere. Film study is being done by the Philadelphia Eagles and every other NFL team. The 2019 NFL Draft begins next Thursday. Philly needs help at wide receiver, and it’s one of the glory positions of football, regardless of what level of football we’re speaking of.
Do you see where we’re headed with this? Let’s rank the top ten wide receivers of the upcoming selection meeting.
Here’s our list:
1. D.K. Metcalf
Any list of the best wide receiver prospects in the country that doesn’t have this guy sitting in the top spot needs to be thrown out entirely.
Philly seems to be interested in this five-foot-eleven speedster. Now, the question remains as to whether or not he’ll be available when the Eagles are on the clock at pick 25 or if Philly’s interested.
Brown might have been Oklahoma‘s shining star if not for the fact that he shared the field with Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. Even still, he should become an instant star for any NFL team that takes him.
4. A.J. Brown
This is a guy the Eagles wouldn’t mind having, but with 31 other NFL franchises and so many other pressing needs, the likelihood that he joins Philly’s group of talented wide receivers is unlikely.
5. Riley Ridley
Here’s a talented prospect who definitely makes our top ten but probably should have returned for his senior season. That may force him into the category of ‘reserve’ or ‘project’. Had he stayed another season, he’d be a first-rounder in 2020.
6. Deebo Samuel
This guy can do anything with a football in his hand, but he has to be on the field to have the football in his hand. If not for injuries, most would probably rate him higher.
It’s hard to imagine that people are trying to watch a ton of Iowa State football unless they’re fans. Depending on who you ask, however, Butler is anywhere from a first-day to a second-day selection depending on how things shake up. Still, it does seem as though his stock is falling as the selection meeting approaches.
8. N’Keal Harry
We do know that the Eagles and a ton of other teams are interested in N’Keal Harry. Explore some other lists, and you may see him ranked above both Samuel and Butler. We’ll have to see if NFL teams agree.
9. Miles Boykin
Boykin made quite the name for himself at Notre Dame. Now, we’ll see if he can make name for himself on Sundays.
We know, because Arcega-Whiteside played at Stanford, that he’s one of the smartest people walking. He has a lot of ability and runs good routes, but his speed may be an issue for some teams. Still, he grades out as a top-ten prospect on our list.
