In-depth fantasy outlooks for all of the top wide receiver prospects entering the 2019 NFL Draft. Outlooks include player analysis, college stats, combine metrics, best team fit, fantasy ceiling and floor analysis, player comparisons projected draft round, projected draft team, highlight videos and full-game film.

Preston Williams – Colorado State University

Perhaps no other wide receiver in the 2019 NFL Draft Class was as dominant as my man Mr. Preston Williams of Colorado State–who posted a 45.3% College Dominator (91st percentile) rating per PlayerProfiler. That, BDGE fam, gives me a wood so stiff I could drill for oil with it. Big. Facts. Only. He very well could be the most COMPLETE wide receiver I’ve written a profile on this year for the BDGE rookie guide–BDGE fam. A former four-star recruit coming out of high school, Preston Williams suited up in the prestigious Under Armour All-America Game. I’ve seen the scouting reports vary drastically on Preston Williams–which quite frankly is pretty surprising–considering his tape is so fucking ridiculous. All Preston Williams did in 2018 was establish one of the best seasons for receiver in Colorado State Ram history. This is the same school that produced the likes of NFL wide receivers–Rashard Higgins and Michael Gallup so Williams has put himself in elite company.

David Sills V – West Virginia University

Sometimes in life, no matter how we try to outrun our destiny, somehow it always finds us again. Such is the unpredictable journey of former West Virginia WR David Sills V. After he committed to the shitbag that is Lane Kiffin and the USC Trojans as a quarterback at age 13, many assumed Sills was destined for superstardom at the signal-caller position.

Jakobi Meyers – N.C. State University

Jakobi Meyers is easily one my favorite slot receiver prospects in this 2019 NFL Draft class. His final year at N.C. State also happened to be one of the best in N.C. State history. In 2018–he hauled in 92 catches–breaking the school record of 88 catches set by Torry Holt in 1998. In 2018–he teamed up with Kelvin Harmon to form the only wide receiver duo in N.C. State history to each rack up over 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. He established himself as one of the greatest receivers in N.C. State history and in doing so cemented his legacy in the hearts of Wolfpack fans everywhere.

Terry Godwin II – University of Georgia

Terry Godwin II is a prospect that I have mixed feelings on. A former five-star recruit coming out of high school–who was actually drafted in 2015 by the Atlanta Braves–the key question with Godwin is why did he underachieve so much at Georgia?

DaMarkus Lodge – University of Mississippi

While DaMarkus Lodge might not have the physical profile of his counterparts D.K. Metcalf and A.J. Brown–but he still posted solid numbers in the SEC and was a part of what will go down as one of the most skilled receiving trios in Ole Miss Rebel and college football history.
