COMMENTS
  QB Trevor Lawrence, JAC: Considered one of the most dynamic WR prospects in at least 10 years.

  TE Kyle Pitts, ATL: A 20-year-old likely to be a perennial high-end TE1 in two years or less? Yes please.

  RB Najee Harris, PIT: Only real downside is age (23); should be a RB1 constant throughout his stay in Pittsburgh.

  RB Travis Etienne, JAC: More than likely the next Urban Meyer Swiss army knife (Percy Harvin, Curtis Samuel).

  RB Javonte Williams, DEN: Youth and 2022 opportunity negated somewhat by likely short shelf live due to physcial running style.

  RB Trey Sermon, SF: Kyle Shanahan's constant churning of backfield a concern, but Sermon is a great fit for his offense.

  WR Rashod Bateman, BAL: Promise of more passing in Baltimore a positive, but crowded depth chart could limit his upside.

  RB Michael Carter, NYJ: Should emerge as starter quickly, but will size (201 pounds) keep his ceiling is a 1B back in an RBBC long-term?

  WR Josh Palmer, LAC: Likely to serve as Keenan Allen's long-term complement in likely Mike Williams moves on in 2022.

  RB Chuba Hubbard, CAR: Set to be Christian McCaffrey's long-term handcuff.

  TE Brevin Jordan, HOU: A bit of a Jordan Reed/Irv Smith Jr. clone headed to an offense lacking in playmakers.

  RB Javian Hawkins, ATL: Likely too small at 180-ish pounds (and too much of a freelancer) to start, but very explosive in open field.

  TE Tre' McKitty, LAC: Pay no attention to his six catches last season; has great chance to replace Jared Cook in 2022.

  RB Larry Rountree III, LAC: Has a fair chance of beating out Joshua Kelley for banger role alongside Austin Ekeler.

  WR Jaelon Darden, TB: Super slot WR option that appears to have little chance of seeing meaningful snaps in 2021.

  WR Josh Imatorbhebhe, JAC: Ridiculous athlete but raw receiver who flashed on occasion at Illinois.

  TE Jacob Harris, LAR: Long-term project who started playing football in 2019; only worth stashing in the deepest of leagues.
