Rookie stats: WRs 2019-2021

2019 through 2021 WRs

Ja’Marr Chase led the pack among counterparts drafted from 2019 through 2021, statistics show. The following compares receiving performance for WR’s during their rookie season during the 2019 through 2021 seasons. An interesting stat is that only 2 WRs (Marquis Brown and N’Keal Harry) were selected in the 1st Round of the 2019 NFL Draft. 6 WRs were selected in the 1st Round of the 2020 Draft, and 5 (6 including Pitts) were selected in the 1st Round of the 2021 Draft.

The 2022 Draft should see multiple WRs selected in the 1st round. This class is known for speed, and there is no shortage of it this year.
