Alabama receiver Henry Ruggs III announced he will declare for the NFL Draft.

With the speedy wideout's announcement, that makes two of Alabama's decorated receiving trio who will be trading in Saturday games for Sundays in 2020. While running mate Jerry Jeudy has long been considered the most prized of the Tide's three-headed receiving attack, Ruggs is perhaps the most electric on a single play. With scouts predicting Ruggs to post a potentially legendary 40-time, Ruggs is being compared to Tyreek Hill without the character concerns.

Ruggs started grabbing attention as a freshman in 2017. While he only had 12 receptions that year, six of them went for touchdowns as he averaged 19.1 yards per catch. In the following two years he never eclipsed 50 catches or 1,000 yards, but he did register 86 receptions, 1,487 and 18 touchdowns during that two year period.

Landing spot will be huge in determining where Ruggs is taken in rookie drafts, but destinations like Philadelphia or Green Bay would likely be near the top of most dynasty owners' wish lists.
