You could have made that complaint about Garret Wilson and Chris Olave. Or Justin Jefferson. Jameson Williams was the #3 guy behind those two at Ohio State.

Being #2 option behind a guy who clearly is getting drafted in the top 5 picks or top 10 picks.

So I don’t like it’s a knock on Egbuka at all that he isn’t the top target at Ohio State

To me, if you can get him at a discount because he’s playing with Harrison and has a bad QB, that’s a win.
Ok, that's fair, but how about the guys like Keon Coleman who's production really isn't that great. I think PFF has him as the #3 WR and Draftbuzz has him #9, currently. Is his QB play really so poor, and his route running and athletic profile so noticeable that he warrants such a lofty ranking with under 600 yards?

Draftbuzz upgrade Legette to #3 WR in their class btw... just stirring the pot for the discussion here.

Legette and Malachi Corley are both really intriguing to me. Legette, with only one year of production, is a burner and an absolute bully with the ball in his hands. His size/speed combo is really impressive. Corley is a former RB and it shows when he's in the open field. He's tough to bring down and a problem for tacklers.

I'm not sure either one can claim a good route tree or, despite their athletic profiles, create consistent separation, but they are RAC monsters.

Production in college is about a lot of things.

- Quality of your teammates
- Quality of your QB
- Style of offense
- What the D tries to take away

Coleman has accounted for 23 percent of his offenses' passing offense. Malik Nabors, for example, has accounted for 30 percent of his.

So what gives? Here's one thing, if we stick with that comparison.

Well, Florida State's QB isn't the running threat that Jayden Daniels is, so teams when I've watched FSU typically have a safety over the top of Coleman or even are playing in a two-deep shell.

LSU gets its guys in 1x1 a lot more simply because of the numbers game and defenses trying to account for Daniels' legs.

Appreciate the input! I simply watch zero college football so my impressions come from stats, draft profiles/rankings, and highlight reels which leaves much to be desired.

Yep. I have a hard time looking at other prospects with the same level of excitement. Rice and Franklin look alot to me like AJ Brown and Devonta Smith in Philly. Add in a nice slot option like Mooney and you have a pretty good looking set of receivers.

Franklin seems like an easy plug-and-play replacement for all the deep overs, posts, and crossers KC likes to run.

And I like Mooney a BUNCH as a complementary Z type.

I mean, in his first two seasons, which were with Nagy, he had 61-631-4 and 81-1055-4. He's 5'10" 180 and runs a 4.38. So basically, a much better version of Hardman.

Since Nagy left, the Bears haven't used him worth a shit.

Where did that number come from? 3/30-ish is probably the ceiling, I'm thinking. An MVS-like deal that maybe isn't quite so backloaded.

I figured he'd get something close to 15 just due to inflation at the WR spot.
