30. Henry Ruggs – Las Vegas Raiders
2020 Stats: 13 games played, 43 targets, 26 receptions, 452 yards, 2 TD
In his first year with the Raiders, Ruggs posted a meandering stat-line. However, advanced numbers point to the Raiders offense performing considerably better whenever Ruggs was on the field. Defenses were forced to account for his ability to take the top off the secondary, allowing the Raiders’ other pass-catchers – namely, Pro Bowl TE Darren Waller – to rack up the yards.
Still, a first-round pick for a glorified decoy is a steep price to pay. The Raiders could benefit from getting the ball in Ruggs’ hands early and often. In college, Ruggs was an enormous threat in the screen game, and QB Derek Carr excels at getting rid of the ball quickly.
