James Washington has been among the most consistent WRs on the college football scene. Washington has seen steady improvement every year, culminating in a 74/1549/13 stat-line in his senior season. While ultra-productive, Washington doesn’t bring the most athletic profile to this battle. Washington also waited until his senior year to declare, which often can be a red flag for WRs that are drafted early. Does Washington get upset or will he move on to the next round? Equanimeous St. Brown got here by upsetting Anthony Miller in the initial stanza. A favorite of the film community, St. Brown offers the size/speed profile of a prototypical stud WR. Unfortunately, he’s short on final-year production, as St. Brown saw his yardage output fall by nearly 47 percent. Fans of St. Brown blame that on the QB situation at Notre Dame. Will our writers see the same thing and project St. Brown for another upset?
