Welcome to the Cornerstone Report. This weekly in-season series focuses on the current NFL rookie class and projected 2020 rookie class.
NCAA WEEK TEN
CeeDee Lamb, WR Oklahoma
I profiled Lamb in week eight but he deserves additional discussion. He keeps producing and climbing devy draft boards. Seemingly each week he evades multiple defenders for a highlight reel score.
In today’s NFL we want elite yards after the catch wide receivers. Lamb fits the bill while checking every box: measurables, production, metrics and the eye test. He has elite change of direction and short area quickness for someone standing 6’2” while displaying the strength you desire from a WR of that stature.
Lamb has risen to fifth overall in the DLF devy rankings, projecting as the 1.04 rookie pick and WR2 (behind Jerry Jeudy) in the 2020 rookie class. This is up one spot from the 1.05 pick two weeks ago.
He now sits at 11th overall in the DLF cornerstone rankings, which combine first and second year NFL players and 2020 rookies. As I note in my ranking: “Giving a big bump to my 2020 WR1. At 6’2, moves like he’s 5’10.”
