Fantasy is reality: 2020 draft loaded at RB, WR

Nothing against the 2019 NFL draft, but the 2020 talent pool could blow this most recent draft class out of the water at the skill positions.

Fantasy football alert: We need a little more clarity at quarterback before we can make a call on the strength of this position, and tight end admittedly looms as a less-thrilling position. But at running back and wide receiver? It might be the best combined group at those two positions we’ve had in years.

“Running backs and receivers this year, this draft is loaded,” an AFC national scout said this week. “We might not have that top-10 guy [at running back] like we’ve had in the past — the [Leonard] Fournette, the Saquon [Barkley] or [Ezekiel Elliott] — but the depth is really pretty incredible if we start hearing about some more of these juniors [coming out].

“It’s already strong at receiver, and it should get even more strong.”

Our most recent mock draft reflects this class’ depth: Only one running back made our top 32, but six receivers went off the board. We haven’t had that many in Round 1 since 2015, with only 11 first-round receivers the past four years combined.’ data-reactid=”82″>Our most recent mock draft reflects this class’ depth: Only one running back made our top 32, but six receivers went off the board.

“I think there will be teams that double dip,” the director said, “because you have so many different flavors: speed, size, shiftier guys. There might not be that Calvin Johnson type of physical freak … but there’s just about everything else here.”

Call it a fantasy footballer’s dream if you want, but the 2020 class might end up the best collection of backs and receivers we’ve had in the same draft in some time.
