Here it is in chart form.


What stands out to me is that there’s not much in the way of tiers there, at least at the top. We’ve got Corey Coleman on his own level, then Laquon Treadwell, Leonte Carroo, and Josh Doctson basically even. After that it’s just a slow steady march down.

Compared to the RSI, we’re especially bullish on Keyarris Garrett, the “other” Mike Thomas, Roger Lewis, and the aforementioned Carroo. Apparently we’re not Ohio State fans, as the two WRs we’re most down on are Michael Thomas and Braxton Miller. And although he doesn’t rank highly on either list, Byron Marshall cracks the top 30 as both a RB and WR.
