. . DeVonta Smith, Alabama. 2. player. 829.

The Philadelphia Eagles and every other NFL team are always well aware of what the Tide and Tigers are doing.

Who knows whether we’ll have a college football season or not, but if we’re lucky enough to see one, there are several names that we’ll hear often. Ja’Marr Chase is one of them. Jaylen Waddle of the Alabama Crimson Tide is another, but it’s Waddle’s teammate, Devonta Smith that figures to step up and fill the void left by Henry Ruggs and Jerry Jeudy.

Waddle and Smith are the next stars in a line of the great Crimson Tide receivers. The latter is a six-foot-one, 175-pound standout that figures to run the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds or less. In 2019, he caught 68 receptions for 1,256 yards and 14 trips to the end zone.

879. . . . Justyn Ross, Clemson. 1. player

Though Philly’s chances of landing Justyn Ross are probably just as slim as they are of winding up with Trevor Lawrence, there is no draft board if Ross isn’t on it.

If the ‘Birds’ are in a position to take this six-foot-four and 205-pound standout, that would probably mean that everything went terribly wrong for the ‘Birds’ in 2019. Ross is probably a top-ten or top-15 guy by the time the smoke clears and the dust settles, but you never know how things might go or if guys might slide.
