    It seems WR's can miss as a high draft pick far more than they hit.

    There have been 77 wide receivers taken in the first round of the draft this century. The most taken in any year was seven in 2004. Six times there have been six or more wide receivers taken in the first round, but over the past decade, the number of first-round wideouts has been consistently lower than six. (pre 2020 draft)

    If you use first-team All Pro selections, then only nine of the 77 first-round picks have qualified and only eight of those were as wide receivers (Corderelle Patterson made first team All Pro as a punt/kickoff returner). If you use first team Pro Bowl selections, then 21 of these first-round wide receivers have done that.

    19 of the 77 wide receivers taken in the first round this century have or had fewer than 100 career receptions in the NFL.

    No receiver taken in the first round since Amari Cooper in 2015 has made the Pro Bowl.



    OK done being pessimistic... but those numbers don't bode well.

    So he has a better chance of eventually becoming a first-team Pro Bowl selection than a less than or equal to a 100 career reception player (27% vs. 22%) vs some kind of contributing player in between (49%). A 1-in-5 chance of a flop, to 1-in-4 chance of a Pro Bowler, to a 1-in-2 chance of somewhere in the middle.

    Ok, party-pooper

    This type of news is well received. Time to re-continue talkin up the potential O surge this coming year. So much talent!! For me it comes down to the fact that we have real skill on this O, and it will thrive if we can execute accordingly. I am confident about the latter.

    his route running and work ethic should help him be special and i feel for several years theres been a bunch of weak WR classes.

    also i feel DJ moore should make a Pro-bowl sooner then later he was really good with iffy QB play this year.

    I think Jeudy's ability to mentally apply his route running and manipulate defenders sets him apart of other players who come into the NFL.

    He was awarded the Fred Biletnikoff Award as the nation's best wide receiver as a sophomore in 2018.

    Does anyone know the history of how well the careers played out for current or past wide receivers who have won this award?

    Those numbers, ultimately, are meaningless.

    Jeudy is a special talent. I can see him being the rare rookie all-pro.
