Grading 2023 NFL Draft WRs by route readiness: What's predictive, plus grades for Quentin Johnston and more
This is the second of five articles grading the 2023 NFL Draft wide receiver prospects, and today our focus is on the route readiness of each prospect. I rate each receiver's ability to produce yardage in each of the five common NFL routes (the "big five"), and whether their college teams kept them away from certain routes at a significant rate. When combined with the other four grading metrics I developed, these grades provide an overall prospect ranking of the 2023 receiver class.
This feature is also part of a bigger breakdown of the receivers that includes my dynasty rookie rankings for the position as well as profiles on all the key rookie receivers. You'll also find in that main feature the five grading articles and an overall ranking of receiver grades based solely on my evaluations on a prospect level independent of team context, which is where the grading system diverges from the post-draft dynasty rankings.
Below, you'll find my grades for every rookie receiver, which includes exciting results for Chargers first-rounder Quentin Johnston.
So which receiver grades best based on route readiness? And who saw a significant boost in the draft? ... Join SportsLine here to see Jacob Gibbs' analysis of the top rookie wide receivers, all from one of the nation's most accurate experts as graded by FantasyPros!
