The Super Bowl is over and it is draft season here at RotoHeat! You want information right now, and I am here to help you choose your Devy WRs with my Bold Top 10 DEVY Wide Receivers for 2021. The order could change a little bit, but let’s get to it…
#1 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
1)George Pickens – 6’ 3” 200 lbs – Georgia
Pickens just finished his sophomore year, and in his first 20 games notched 85 catches for 1,240 yards. That’s a very nice average of 4.25 catches for 62 yards per game since he first started as a true freshman. His catches constantly bring out the “SMH” Emoji with some of his ridiculous grabs. Add in 14 TDs and you have my #1 Devy WR for 2021. There is a reason he wears the #1 jersey. He is NFL Draft eligible in 2022.
#2 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
2)Chris Olave – 6’ 1” 188 lbs – Ohio State
In a surprise move, Chris Olave decided to return to Ohio State for his senior year. His sophomore and junior years were very good with 48 and 50 catches, accordingly. He combined for 1,569 yards on those 98 catches and scored 19 TDs. He should be the Buckeyes #1 target next year for CJ Stroud, and that will boost his NFL Draft stock. Grab him now and only have to wait a year. He is NFL Draft eligible 2022.
#3 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
3)David Bell – 6’ 2” 205 lbs – Purdue
David will be a future star if his freshman and sophomore years mean anything. He started both years, which got him into 18 games. In his 18 games he had 139 catches for 1,660 yards. Add in 16 total TDs and you have a future star–that is if he isn’t one already. He has great body control and knows how to keep himself in position to make the catch by blocking out the defensive back and can run after the catch as he doesn’t come down easily. His junior year will cement his standing for the NFL Draft in 2022.
#4 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
4)Frank Ladson 6’ 3” 205 lbs Clemson
There was not much action for him in his first 2 years, but the stage is set for his junior year to blossom. In 16 games he has 27 catches for 409 yards and 6 TDs. You can see the glide and steps which separate him from the defense, and his hands are exceptional. If you have the room on your devy squad, pick him up now while the price is down. After his junior year, his price might be out of your range to get him.
#5 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
5)Jadon Haselwood – 6’ 2” 200 lbs – Oklahoma
This upcoming junior will finally get his chance to show his skills. I love his raw ability to get the ball because of his tremendous hands. His true freshman year accounted for 19 catches for 272 yards and 1 TD. He didn’t do much in his sophomore year due to an undisclosed injury during the off-season. The talent is there if he can stay healthy and earn Spencer’s trust. Here is another player you want to get this year before the word gets out.
#6 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
6)Julian Fleming – 6’ 2” 200 lbs – Ohio State
As a true freshman, he had 7 catches for 74 yards, but you watch his high school highlights, you’ll see what I see. He was a man amongst boys, and now that he has a year under his belt, and the depth chart swung his way, he will show everyone his skills. He is fast, powerful, and has very strong hands. Get him now and then watch him become the man over these next two years. He is NFL Draft eligible 2023.
#7 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
7)Theo Wease – 6’ 3” 192 – Oklahoma
This upcoming junior has played in 17 games over his first two years and amassed 45 catches for 666 yards with 6 TDs. His talent is unquestionable. He just stands out on the field and you can not take your eyes off of him. It is rare that the first defensive back actually brings him down. Spencer Rattler will be a Heisman Candidate with the wide receivers he has at his disposal. You will enjoy watching this connection grow!
#8 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
8)CJ Johnson – 6’ 2” 236 lbs – East Carolina
This upcoming Junior had a great true freshman year, but definitely had the sophomore slump. He increased his yards per catch from 16.8 yds to 21.3 yds and increased his touchdowns from 4 to 6, but had 35 less catches as a sophomore. I fully expect him to beat his freshman numbers by a good amount in every statistic this year. Get him while the going is cheap. He is special with his feet off the line, his breaks to separate, and his hands.
#9 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
9)Mycah Pittman – 5’ 11” 200 lbs – Oregon
In his 11 games so far, he has 26 catches for 350 yards and 2 TDs. Mycah is the only wide receiver on my list that isn’t at least 6’ tall. He plays much bigger and much stronger than a typical 5’ 11” wide receiver does. He is quick, has great feet, and has great hands. He should battle for the #1 spot this year as a junior.
#10 of My Bold Top 10 Devy Wide Receivers for 2021
10)Jordan Johnson – 6’ 2” 180 lbs – Notre Dame
It is very well known that Notre Dame Football Head Coach, Brian Kelly does not like to play freshman wide receivers. Jordan Johnson fell into that category and did not see the field. That stat will not be repeated for his sophomore year. Jordan is explosive with the God-given talent to break defensive backs’ ankles on the spot. Then, throw in the hands he was given, and you have a difference maker starting his sophomore year. Enjoy watching him play!
