Rolling right along with our 2021 NFL Draft rankings heading into the season. It’s never too early to talk about the draft! The wide receiver class in the 2020 NFL Draft was ridiculous. Well, get ready because this one is probably better. Let’s get to it. Here are your way too early wide receiver rankings for the 2021 NFL Draft.

1: Ja’Marr Chase (LSU)

What can you say? Ja’Marr Chase was the most dominant WR in the country a year ago. Chase notched 84 receptions, 1,780 yards, and 20 touchdowns. The dude is a monster and killed every cornerback he went against this year.

2: Justyn Ross (Clemson)

I really think Justyn Ross is special. He didn’t take a huge step forward from his true freshman year which was ridiculous. I think a lot of it was Clemson bored all year. You just don’t have that same eye of the tiger as the hunted instead of the hunters. Ross has everything you want. I’m guessing a big season incoming.

3: Jaylen Waddle (Alabama)

Jaylen Waddle is a classic example of freakish athletes you spot and think to yourself that humans aren’t supposed to move like that. Waddle is the best kick returner and run after the catch guy in this class. His speed is off the charts. I’m not sure he’s quite as fast but if Chris Johnson was a wide receiver, he would look like this.

4: Rondale Moore (Purdue)

Purdue doesn’t normally produce prospects like this. Rondale Moore is much different. He beat Ohio State by himself as a Freshman. Moore isn’t the biggest dude but the speed and explosion are there. He’s going to be a nightmare in the NFL.

5: Chris Olave (Ohio State)

Chris Olave is just so damn smooth. The hands are off the charts. The last time an Ohio State receiver had this sort of style, it was Michael Thomas. I’m higher on Olave than most. I think he’s a baller.

6: Rashod Bateman (Minnesota)

The fact that Rashod Bateman slides in at number 6 shows you the depth of the class this year. Minnesota isn’t a NFL prospect factory, but there’s no doubt Bateman can play. Mel Kiper has him 8th on his big board for all players. Tells you everything you need to know. My only question on Bateman is how dynamic is he. The ceiling remains undefined yet which is good and bad.

7: Amon Ra St. Brown (USC)

Amon Ra St. Brown is by far the most special St. Brown brother. A former big time recruit coming off a season over 1,000 yards and 6 touchdowns. USC has been so dysfunctional it’s hard to know just how good St. Brown is. A full year with Kedon Slovis will give us a better idea.

8: Devonta Smith (Alabama)

Devonta Smith comes in at number 8. He profiles very similarly to Henry Ruggs. The problem is Smith is even smaller than Ruggs. He’s listed at 175. That means he’s probably 160. There’s no question the Bama product can fly but he needs to get stronger.

9: Seth Williams (Auburn)

The toughest part about evaluating Seth Williams the goofy offense at Auburn. I hate Auburn’s offense. Williams is a big target and the fact that he got 830 yards is crazy. Bo Nix can’t even throw the ball. I’m curious to see just how fast Williams is.

10: Tamorrion Terry (Florida State)

Tamorrion Terry fills the final spot as a skinny burner. The 6-foot-4 frame makes you think he could develop into something special. Terry had some big games in college despite playing for horrendous Florida State.
