SD Roundtable: Top Target at WR

February 28, 2019

As we continue our series, its time to look at the receiver position in the 2020 class. 

Last week we looked at the running back group and identified the top target at that position.

This week we offer up a look at wide receiver which is absolutely loaded out West in 2020. There is a ton of elite talent in the state of California alone. The Ducks signed a big group in 2019 which means there isn’t a ton of room in 2020. Which again means it will be a group based on starpower not deep on numbers.

With that in mind it’s an overwhelming amount of votes for a 5-Star with me being the lone wolf once again.

Jhop: Jalen McMillan

I agree Johnny Wilson is an absolute no-brainer. He’s an excellent football player. His blend of size and speed is rare. But I think McMillan might just be the best pure receiver out West. He’s big enough, plenty fast and also a top 50 level prospect nationally. I think he has the type of smoothness to his game that is hard to find out West or anywhere for that matter. 

Corpatty: Johnny Wilson  

Best 2020 WR on the west coast, if not the country, and has Oregon in his top-5.  Would be an immediate impact wide receiver at Oregon.

Chris McCulley: Johnny Wilson

What is not to like about a 6-5, 220-pound wideout? If the Ducks can secure a verbal from DJ, the chance to team up with an elite quarterback and former teammate Mycah Pittman should seem attractive.

Max Torres: Johnny Wilson

Already got Micah Pittman from Calabasas; why not go back and see if they can get more? Great size to add to the outside for Oregon.

Jonathan Charles: Johnny Wilson

Wilson is the best or the second-best wide receiver in the country; He provides the length on the outside that has been missing since the Chip Kelly days. Wilson has a huge catch radius, is very good with his hands – and as a bonus, he brings some serious speed to the table.
