The 2020 NFL Draft is over, but its time to look back at some of the best selections from over the weekend. Not surprisingly, the Raiders show up on this list a few times as they crushed the second and third day of the NFL Draft. So without further ado, here are the five best picks from this year’s draft.
2020 NFL Draft: Ranking the top-7. With the Eagles needing a big-time playmaker on the outside or in the slot, here are the rankings of the top seven wide receiver prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Best Slot Receivers Nfl Draft 2020 Draft
The Cowboys weren’t searching for a wide receiver early in the 2020 draft, but arguably the best receiver fell to them at pick No. 17 and the value was too good to pass up.
Lamb is a perfect fit in the Cowboys’ offense as he can play outside and in the slot. And with Randall Cobb leaving this offseason, Lamb can slide right into a starting role with Dallas.
The talent pool at the wide receiver position during this year's NFL Draft was historically deep, and the same can be said for 2020 fantasy football drafts. There's no doubt wideouts like Michael Thomas and Julio Jones will be the first ones off the board, but don't be alarmed if you are unable to select one of the elite WR options. It's more than likely you'll be able to strike gold later on. In the 2019 NFL season, per Sports Info Solutions, there were 19,933 total quarterback dropbacks. Against those dropbacks, NFL defenses put four defensive backs on the field just 18% of the time (3,579 snaps), while nickel defense (with five defensive backs) ruled the league by far with 59% of all snaps (11,780). With the 2020 NFL Draft just around the corner, I've put my context-based data models to work in search of identifying the best team fit for some of the top players in this year's class. Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb and Henry Ruggs III top our rankings list of the 30 best wide receiver prospects in the 2020 NFL draft.

Don’t be surprised if the former Oklahoma receiver winds up being one of the favorites to win the 2020 Rookie of the Year Award as he joins an already elite offense and can be a weapon in the red zone for Dallas.
