Preseason WR watch list for the 2022 NFL Draft includes Chris Olave, Garrett Wilson, and Treylon Burks.

In recent years, the NFL has seen an exciting surge of wide receiver talent, with 11 first-round picks at the position in the last two drafts.
Last summer, we predicted that LSU’s JaMarr Chase would be a top-10 draft choice.
At this point in the process, there is no receiving prospect in the NFL Draft class of 2022 who is regarded a top 20 lock, but there is plenty of buzz around the league about the group’s potential talent.
Even if this year’s receiving class falls short of the previous two, the position will still be a strength in the 2022 draft.
Without the durability concerns, two wide receiver prospects, Clemson’s Justyn Ross and Georgia’s George Pickens, would be significantly higher on this list.
Ross has the skills to be the first receiver drafted, but he lost the entire 2017 season due to spinal surgery, and evaluators are waiting to see how he develops.
