Move Up or Stand Pat? That is the question…
Everyone and their mothers have the Eagles slotted to take a Wide Receiver in the first round. However, there is a real possibility that Howie decides to steer this ship in a different direction. This draft is shaping up to one of the deepest at Wide Receiver that we have seen in quite some time.
Here we are gonna take a look at a few options that may be available in the mid-rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Chase Claypool (click here for full report)
At 6’4″ 229 lbs, Chase Claypool is an athletic freak. He once again proved that at the Combine this past weekend. Here is how he compares to some of the biggest names the NFL has ever seen. Claypool ran a 4.42 (40-yard dash). Which is faster the Odel Beckham Jr. He had a 40 1/2 vertical leap. Which is higher than Julio Jones. And, a 10’6″ Broad Jump. Which is more explosive than Devin Hester. With a number like that there no wonder why people are gushing over his overall performance in Indy. We expect the Notre Dame product to climb many ‘Big Boards’ as we get close to the 2020 Draft
Devin Duvernay (click here for full report)
Duvernay (5’11” 202 lbs) certainly turned some heads at the Combine. Not only did Devin run one the fastest times at the Combine (4.39 / 40-Yard Dash) but he also did not drop a single ball that came his way in his entire combine workout. ‘Duv’ finished his Senior season with 1,386 yards on 106 receptions and 9 TDs.
Michael Pittman Jr. (click here for full report)
One thing we knew about the USC wideout is SIZE! He has it. Coming in at 6’4″ 223 lbs, Pittman Jr. came to Indy to prove he is not just a jump-ball receiver. MPJr succeeded in doing so with his ability and quick feet. While clocking in at a 4.5 in his 40-yard dash it was his 4.14 short shuttle that impressed. Which ranked him second in the entire wide receiver position. Pittman Jr. He also posted a 6.69 3-cone drill that made him one of only four wide receivers to run under seven seconds.
