The wide receiver draft class for 2020 is the deepest that we have seen in years. Several receivers will go in the first round, but the talent will be spread throughout this draft and will be found from the first round all the way to the seventh. Isaiah Hodgins will be a wide receiver that starts to move up draft boards over the next few weeks.
At 6’4”, Hodgins is able to go up and catch the ball at its highest point. Hodgins has strong hands and will rarely drop a football or fumble the ball. In the red zone, Hodgins is a dynamic threat with his size and strength causing problems for the opposing defense. Hodgins does a good job of getting into his routes and uses his speed to create separation. Physically he is everything teams are looking for in a red zone target.
The area that is a bit of a question mark is whether Hodgins can defeat press coverage. The other area of concern is that Hodgins run after the catch has not been as impressive as you would expect. Hodgins will impress at the pro day and the combine and has a real chance to move up draft boards.
The current projection that I have on Hodgins is an early fourth round selection, but I do expect him to shoot up boards. If Hodgins performs well at the combine and at his pro day then he should move up. This a deep receiving class and value you can be found all throughout the draft.
