The NFL has had 7 wide receivers drafted twice over the history of the NFL Draft, and this year there could be a new record set. The first time this happened was in 1984 for the Supplemental Draft of USFL and CFL players entering the NFL.
|2||1||16||16||Ricky Sanders||Patriots||Southwest Texas State|
|5||1||24||24||Derrick Crawford||49ers||Memphis State|
|6||1||26||26||Danny Knight||Dolphins||Mississippi State|
You probably owner remember one of those players, but this also happened one other time. That was in 2004, when Larry Fitzgerald entered the NFL Draft.
|5||1||15||15||Michael Clayton||Buccaneers||Louisiana State|
|6||1||29||29||Michael Jenkins||Falcons||Ohio State|
|7||1||31||31||Rashaun Woods||49ers||Oklahoma State|
This year the draft is packed with top talent wide receivers. According to CBS Sports rankings, they have 8 players in the top 40 draft picks who are wide receivers and I have seen all of them in Mock Drafts so far.
|11||Henry Ruggs III||Alabama||Jr||WR||3||6-0||190|
|27||Laviska Shenault Jr.||Colorado||Jr||WR||6||6-2||220|
So here is my question, could 8 teams draft a wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft? What do you think? Is it possible?
