A New No. 1 and Other Risers in the Updated WR Prospect Rankings

Anthony Amico has been doing work all off-season on predictive modeling for incoming rookies. Since NFL Draft Scout ranking is a significant factor, the model projections will change as the rankings change. There have been a variety of changes to the NFL Draft Scout rankings since the NFL combine. Though the wide receiver model itself has not changed, there have been big changes to the model outputs.

  • Now that D.J. Moore has climbed all the way to second in the NFL Draft Scout ranks, he is the clear top fantasy WR in this class. His projection would rank eighth among all WRs in the sample since 2000.
  • Christian Kirk saw a subsequent decrease in projection, as he slid to third in the Draft Scout ranks.
  • Equanimeous St. Brown was another big riser, with his projection going up roughly 15 points.
  • Simmie Cobb’s projection went down close to 20 points.
  • Antonio Callaway was the second biggest riser after Moore. He was ranked 37th by NFL Draft Scout prior to the Combine and now ranks 17th. He is climbing closer and closer to being relevant.

There may be one more update prior to the NFL Draft, but I wanted to keep everyone abreast of the changes, particularly Moore’s since it was so significant.
