- Justin Jefferson led all Juniors in receiving yards (1,540) and receiving touchdowns (18).
- The NFL Combine will be February 23rd- March 2nd.
- Jerry Jeudy projects to have a 40-yard dash time of 4.43.
INDIANAPOLIS – The annual NFL Combine is set to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium as many of the best football players from the college level showcase their abilities in front of NFL scouts.
This year’s combine will be February 23rd- March 2nd in Indianapolis. One of the most talked-about and deepest position groups in this year’s draft is the wide receiver group.
This group of wide receivers will quickly become household names in the NFL and the first four rounds of the draft should see a plethora of talented receivers be taken off the board.
Below are some of NFL Combine props for wide receivers that could go in the first two rounds in this year’s draft. The odds come from the online sportsbook MyBookie and continue to check there for the most up to date odds on these NFL combine props.
Best 40 Time Tee Higgins:
- Faster than 4.57 seconds (-120)
- Slower than 4.57 seconds (-120)
Winner: Slower than 4.57 seconds. Clemson wideout Tee Higgins has the size of an elite NFL receiver at six foot four inches. He’ll be especially useful for a team that needs help scoring in the red zone through the air. Higgins finished his junior season with 59 catches, 1,167 yards, and 13 touchdowns.
A good 40 time might be the difference between Higgins being a first-round selection or a second-round draft pick. Higgins isn’t a speedy receiver and sports bettors should expect his 40 time to be slower than 4.57 seconds.
Best 40 Time CeeDee Lamb:
- Faster than 4.54 seconds (-120)
- Slower than 4.54 seconds (-120)
Winner: Slower than 4.54 (-120). Oklahoma Sooners Wide Receiver CeeDee Lamb will be the first wide receiver taken before or after Crimson Tide product Jerry Jeudy.
In his junior year at Oklahoma Lamb had 62 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns while only missing one game all season. Lamb is known as an excellent route runner but lacks the top end speed to burn defenses over the top.
Take the odds on him coming in slower than 4.54 which won’t affect his draft stock at all because his hands and route running ability are what teams love about Lamb. Expect him to still be a first-round pick in the upcoming draft.
Best 40 Time Jerry Jeudy:
- Faster than 4.44 seconds (-120)
- Slower than 4.44 seconds (-120)
Winner: Faster than 4.44 (-120). Jerry Jeudy could be the first wide receiver taken off the board in the 2020 NFL draft and his speed is a big reason why NFL team’s mouths are watering over this prospect.
Jeudy finished the 2019 season with 77 catches, 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns.
If Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa didn’t go down with an injury Jeudy’s numbers might’ve been even better. He’ll look to follow a long line of dominant wide receivers to come out of Alabama like Atlanta Falcons Receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, as well as Dallas Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper.
Jeudy has the speed that could separate him from the rest of the receivers in the Draft and should be an immediate impact player for the team that drafts him. Take the odds on Jeudy running faster than 4.44 seconds.
Best 40 Time Justin Jefferson:
- Slower than 4.51 seconds (-300)
- Faster than 4.51 seconds (+200)
Winner: Faster than 4.51 (+200). It was quite the year for the LSU Tigers and wide receiver Justin Jefferson was one of the biggest beneficiaries of success. Jefferson has the most receptions (111) and receiving yards (1,540) than any other Junior in the NFL Draft. The junior lined up across the field for the Tigers which showcased his blend of speed and length.
Take the odds-on Jefferson being faster than 4.51 seconds and get that return of +200. This will close as Jefferson has matchup winning speed, but his 40-times haven’t showcased that yet. What better time for him to do it than the NFL Combine?
