2019 NFL Draft Preview: 4 top WRs


This year's NFL draft has a vast amount of talent at the receiver position. Here are some of the best that will enter the 2019 NFL draft, according to Behind the Steel Curtain, a Steelers fan blog on the SBNation network.

D.K. Metcalf of Ole Miss is the type of player you make in a video game. He has the size at 6’4" and great speed for the NFL. In 2018, he racked up 26 catches for 569 yards and five touchdowns. His numbers aren’t that good due to him having a neck injury in past season. He will be a mismatch for sure, but also a red zone weapon that will be go to.

Kelvin Harmon of NC State has an alpha mentality to go along with a physicality and reliable hands that will help him in the NFL. In 2018, he totaled 81 receptions for 1,186 yards with seven touchdowns. Harmon can run nice routes but also break very fluidly for a player his size. On the field, he makes an impact.

Marquise Brown of Oklahoma totaled 75 catches for 1,318 yards with 10 touchdowns. He was the go-to target for Heisman winner Kyler Murray with his explosiveness and elite speed. Some teams in the NFL love his talent but may look past him because of his size. If he can get bigger and keep his speed, Brown will be one of the most dynamic receivers in the NFL.

N’Keal Harry of Arizona State totaled 73 catches for 1,088 yards with nine touchdowns. Teams in the NFL are skeptical of his ability to separate along with his speed. Harry makes up for this with his amazing contested catch ability and his yards after the catch. Harry is so big he usually drags defenders for yards.
