At the beginning of the NFL season, we wrote about the deep wide receiver class in the 2020 NFL Draft. Six receivers were selected in Round 1. Now, as the season nears its midway point, we thought it would be an opportune time to check on these six pass catchers and see whether they have met expectations…or not.
So far, it seems that Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings has had the best rookie campaign. The former LSU standout is on his way to a 1,000-yard season, barring injuries. Speaking of injuries, both Henry Ruggs (knee) and Jalen Reagor (thumb) had been sidelined for multiple games, although both are reportedly ready to go this Sunday. And while CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy had impressive starts to the season, they’ve been struggling lately with their starting QBs out with injuries.
