    Ranking 15 best wide receivers in 2024 NFL Draft class

    NFL Draft wide receiver rankings 2024- 15 best players from historically talented group - SBNation.com

    1. Marvin Harrison Jr., Ohio State

    Harrison was our unanimous number one receiver, and for good reason. Harrison is the most NFL-ready WR to come out of college in recent history. He hails from legendary NFL bloodlines, and with that comes immense expectations.

    2. Malik Nabers, LSU

    Nabers was either two or three on every ballot and earned the most second-place votes. Nabers plays like he has nitro booster on his back, and can shift gears like a finely tuned sports car.

    3. Rome Odunze, Washington

    While Odunze earned a few second-place votes, he was also as low as six on one ballot. Odunze was dominant at Washington, turning in back-to-back 1000-yard seasons. He does numerous things well and is a playmaker that is capable of being successful on all three levels of the field.

    Re: Ranking 15 best wide receivers in 2024 NFL Draft class

    4. Brian Thomas Jr., LSU

    Thomas earned the most fourth-place ballots, but that was his top number. Thomas Jr. has a rare combination of size, speed, and explosiveness. The junior from LSU put up gaudy numbers in his final season at LSU (1177 yards and 17 touchdowns) but that was his only year with significant production.


    5. Adonai Mitchell, Texas

    Mitchell earned one second-place vote but was also ranked outside the top six receivers on a different ballot. Mitchell is one of the most polarizing prospects of this list, he has elite measurables but his production in college was sub par for a first round wide receiver. Sometimes when this happens you have to go back to the “eye test” and watch some game film. For me, Mitchell passes the eye test, this guy can flat out ball. Not only does he have great size (6’2”) and elite speed (4.34-second 40-yard dash), but he also is one of the best route runners in the class. The sky is the limit for Mitchell in the NFL, superstar status pending.


    6. Keon Coleman, Florida State


    Coleman earned a fourth-place vote and a pair of fives but ultimately settled a little lower than that. Keon Coleman turns into a monster when the ball is in the air, he is the ultimate contested-catch receiver. His ability to win the 50/50 ball is the reason he is rated so high.


    7. Xavier Worthy, Texas

    Worthy doesn’t need much introduction as he is the new record holder for the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine where he ran it in 4.21 seconds. Worthy has world-class speed, and it makes him dangerous from anywhere on the field.


    8. Troy Franklin, Oregon

    Franklin was voted as high as five on one ballot, but everyone else had him seven to nine. He is a long strider who has the potential to take the ball to the house anytime he touches it. His slender build makes him susceptible to physical corners and he doesn’t produce many broken tackles.

    Worthy won't make it past the Raiders. Book it. If he's there at 28...

    But I want a bigger guy with speed. I'm thinking Legette. He's 6'1" and 221# with 4.39 speed and a 40" vertical. He seems like a guy who needs to work on route-running and that can be taught. My only concern is with his 9" hands.

    It’s he second tier guys that fall too far for their egos… that is where I would like he selection to be from. A chip on the shoulder guy that becomes a star.

    Of course, we can forget about the top 3 (in the post before this one). No way, no how is Buffalo going to even sniff any of them.

    BUT, they absolutely can and (I think ) WILL get one of these prizes.

    My hope is that they get into a position to trade up to get Brian Thomas. It's unlikely he'll be these at #28. He is a perfect fit for the Bills.

    Other than that, the Bills talent organization (it's NOT just Beane...it's a whole group) has to do their best to pick the most likely to succeed in the Bills offensive scheme that Joe Brady is developing.

    If the guy isn’t there, trade back and then get a WR in the second. Package picks to get back into 3rd.

    The Raiders will sell their souls for a QB they will be trading up.

    The top 3 QBs will be gone by the 3rd overall pick. After them (and at best I can see 1 of them succeeding) it's a bunch of also-rans.

    No concern that Thomas only has one year of good college production?

    I appreciate he is a Junior.

    I agree with the Top 5 all the way.

    Coleman, completely pass. Not a fan.

    Worthy is ok, wouldn’t take him over Franklin. Leggette in round 2 would be a steal. That combination of speed and size can’t be taught.

    I really like Ladd McConkey, only 5-10 but runs a 4.39 and is probably the best route runner in the draft. I also like Roman Wilson, also 5-10 and runs 4.39 Maybe McConkey is late 1st or early 2nd, but I don't think he get passed KC.

    Can you win a Super Bowl without a great #1 WR?
