(Editor’s note: This is part one of two. Be sure to keep an eye out for part two, due tomorrow!)
The 2019 wide receiver class is one of the deepest we have seen in a long time. This class is talented enough to shift the landscape of the NFL and dynasty leagues. Not only will some of the top prospects produce at the next level but we will more than likely see a few late-round players make an impact as well.
We saw seven wide receivers run in the 4.3s this year and we also saw five record 40 inches or more on the vertical jump. This might be the most athletic wide receiver class we have ever seen, which could make it hard to evaluate this group as a whole. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get eight or more fantasy relevant players out of this draft class in the near future.
My database has athletic metrics for wide receivers from the NFL Scouting Combine and pro days from the year 2005 to now. The database has over 630 prospects in it, providing a deep sample of talent at the wide receiver position.
