These are my final rankings for the 2019 Running Back and Wide Receiver Classes.
I graded 24 (RB) and 20 (WR) categories weighted on a 150-point scale including criterion such as speed, balance, body control, hands, blocking in addition to position specific abilities like separation and route running for receivers and lateral agility and short area burst for running backs. One cumulative category for each position included NFL readiness, Senior Bowl performance, Combine performance and competition level in college.
EDITORS NOTE: These are not final RW rookie rankings. You can find Alex Dunlap’s Rookie Rankings here and Byron Lambert’s here. Once all individual staff rankings are in, we’ll have the pre-draft cumulative rankings up the downloads section of your profile. PLEASE ALSO NOTE, these rankings do not take into account NFL team landing spot for fantasy purposes. The first-run of those rankings, along with updates to the various cheat sheet products, will be available ASAP following the conclusion of the NFL draft.
