There is not a more decorated wide receiver in this class; Renfrow has played in three National Championship games (winning two) and scored four touchdowns in those games including a game winner against Alabama in 2016. But none of that matters now.
RB Kansas State
Alex Barnes is a throwback to a different era of running back. I kept expecting to hear Harry Kalas narrate Barnes’s game tape, the booming voice of NFL Films chronicling each cutback and blitz pickup.
RB Boise State
It’s difficult to take seriously any film of games played on blue turf, but Alexander Mattison will grab your attention and not let go. He’s big and punishing with a dash of space-back thrown in for good measure.
Whiteside feels bigger than 6-2”, largely because of how physical he plays. (Sometimes it seems like an extra tight end inadvertently walked onto the field.) In fact, Whiteside does everything so big that one out of every five catches in his career went for a touchdown.
WR Ole Miss
The third member of Ole Miss’s NWO trio, DaMarkus Lodge, is far less heralded than his teammates. He hauled in 65 catches for 877 yards in 2018, but still remains in the shadows of AJ Brown and DK Metcalf.
When turning over stones to find draft prospects, it’s always a good idea to check up at that MAC powerhouse, the University at Buffalo; Anthony Johnson was a nice surprise.
That’s not a typo, Marquise “Hollywood” Brown is listed at 165 pounds. (The technical term is teeny weeny.) In spite of his size, Brown has rolled off consecutive 1,000 yard seasons, capped off by a 75 catch, 10 touchdown effort in 2018.
