(1) Mike Williams vs (16) Malachi Dupre

Looking at the Heatmap below, Mike Williams comes into this match up with a clear advantage in raw stats. Regarded by many in the scouting community as the WR in this draft class with the highest ceiling, Williams has been compared to Brandon Marshall. While lofty comparisons often come up short, Williams 90.7 receiving yards per game this past year show that he has the ability to produce at a high rate. Will that be enough for the top seeded WR to win this tournament? Dupre enters this match up after beating Ryan Switzer in the play-in game. While regarded as an inferior prospect to Williams, Dupre accounted for a high MS of both receiving yards and touchdowns. With a very production-driven judging panel, that could be enough to get Dupre the nod. Screenshot (39)
