Our NFL rookie profile series continues with this analysis of 2022 NFL Draft Prospect Wan'Dale Robinson, WR from Kentucky. We will continue to provide you with these in-depth rookie profiles and a ton of other fantasy football rookie analysis right up through the NFL Draft. Stay tuned, and stay ahead of your league.
We are getting to the point where we should expect a deep wide receiver class in every draft. Sure, we might experience some low points here and there, but for the most part, we should expect the pond to always be stocked with wide receivers.
When it comes to this year’s group of receivers, the talent extends past the second round of rookie drafts. It doesn’t mean we are going to get ten or more wide receivers who are locked and loaded to contribute to our fantasy teams. It means there are plenty of wide receivers who have indicators in their player profile that they have the potential to hit at the next level.
A receiver in this year’s draft who has some positive attributes that they could develop into a coveted dynasty asset is Wan'Dale Robinson. He checks the boxes on a lot of different metrics and his tape checks out. The only thing left is to see where he goes in the draft.
