The OVER 4.5 wide receivers in Round 1 is the most wagered on 2021 NFL Draft prop bet as revealed by BetOnline Wednesday morning. 


Receivers that could get chosen in Round 1 include Jaylen Waddle, Alabama, Ja’Marr Chase, LSU, DeVonta Smith, Alabama, Rashod Bateman, Minnesota, Rondale Moore, Purdue, Kadarius Toney, Florida, Terrace Marshall Jr., LSU, Elijah Moore, Mississippi, and Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC.

Moore is on the bubble, projected as a potential second-round pick in the NFL draft even as he hovers between a #4 and #5 rank on many sites.

ESPN.com writes of Moore:

"Moore is an undersized slot receiver with excellent burst and rare top-end speed. He makes defenders miss and has the second gear to pull away when he gets the ball in space. He averaged 10.1 yards per carry in 2018. 

He's more of a threat after the catch, but he tracks the ball well and makes some plays downfield. He's an above-average route runner who has the burst to separate from man and settles into pockets working against zone looks. He's a hands catcher, but he's a small target who drops some balls. He's tough over the middle and after the catch." 

The folks over at Pro Football Focus rank the former Minnesota Gopher Rashod Bateman as the 17th-ranked prospect overall and fourth-best receiver.

Bucky Brooks of NFL.com writes of Bateman:

"Bateman is an enticing mix of A.J. Brown and Michael Thomas on the perimeter; he’s a physical pass catcher with the capacity to play out wide or in the slot. He is a true No. 1 receiver, and his underrated game could pop at the next level."
