In this series, I’m breaking down the top-10 returning college wide receivers from 2017 by dominator rating (DR). If you’re unfamiliar with dominator rating, it’s a receiver’s combined market share of receiving yardage and touchdowns. While it’s only one element in receiver evaluation – and requires age and experience adjustments to tell the full story – it provides an excellent snapshot of a player’s role within his offense. Consider this an early look at potential rookies in the 2019 class to get a jump-start on the draft season. I’ll take a look back at their prospect profiles and rankings from high school, their production at the college level, and prospectus for the NFL. The 2017 countdown included Michael Gallup, Courtland Sutton, Anthony Miller, and Richie James. While the two receivers profiled below just missed the countdown, their draft stock is already high and are likely to be early picks come April. For that reason, I’m giving them their own section here as an honorable mention to help kick off the true start of the college football season. Queue the band!
