Way Too Early 2023 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Rankings

It feels like the talent at the wide receiver position never ends. Year after year we’re getting really talented receivers and the 2023 NFL Draft will probably be no different. On the surface, it looks like another promising class. Let’s go over the way too early rankings!

1. Kayshon Boutte (LSU)

The flashes Boutte shows are the best in the class. Really popped as a true freshman but didn’t repeat the production this past year. LSU was a mess so it’s understandable. Sort of lean but the movement skills are damn good. Has some hands on him. Will get open. Overall a stud. Justin Jefferson vibes.

2. Jaxson Smith-Njigba

I think most of the draft community is aware of Smith-Njigba at this point. These Ohio State receivers are all working. Another talented dude that kinda looks like Chris Olave physically. Coming off a really big year. Has a huge test in front of him with Olave and Garrett Wilson gone. Really good player and should find himself in the first round.

3. Marvin Mims (Oklahoma)

I love Marvin Mims. Yes, he’s on the smaller side but this dude flys and he’s open all the time. He’s a big play waiting to happen. Kinda wish he transferred out after the coaching change but I would anticipate him being the number one target there. Again, I know the guy is small but he’s such a playmaker it’s hard to ignore him.

4. Josh Downs (North Carolina)

Another smaller guy but Downs is coming off a 1,300 plus yard season that can’t be ignored. Has some speed to his game. Another guy that just gets open. Wrecks havoc in the open field. Caught my eye right away as a freshman. Has talent. Has to be on the list.

5. Rakim Jarrett (Maryland)

This one is more of a feel pick. Not even sure he’s the best receiver on his college team. Plays bigger than his size. Can really high point the ball. Route running isn’t perfect but he’s imposing target and can create space. Coming off a productive year with shaky quarterback play. A number of names I could have considered here but it speaks volumes to the receivers entering the league.
