The Indianapolis Colts don't hold a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, but they do have a pair of second rounders, including the second pick of the round, having acquired the No. 34 pick from the Washington Redskins.

The Colts need wide receiver help, and while picking this late keeps them out of the running for the top prospects at the position, picking at No. 34 puts them in a great spot. There's a ton of late-first-round talent at the position this year, and that means we're likely to see a couple top players at the position fall into the Colts' lap.

With that in mind, here are three first-round receiver prospects that could fall to Indy's top pick.

1. Denzel Mims, Baylor

Denzel Mims had an outstanding combine, which included a 4.38-second 40-yard dash, 131-inch broad jump and 6.66-second 3-cone drill. That's particularly impressive when you consider that he stands 6-foot-3. At FanDuel Sportsbook he's still only a modest +116 underdog to fall out of the first round, though, and any team would be wise to snatch him up early on Day 2.

2. Jalen Reagor, TCU

Jalen Reagor's production took a hit in 2019, and that might have teams hesitant to pull the trigger in Round 1. He still racked up a career 2,248 yards and 22 touchdowns at TCU, though, and it's hard not to love his explosiveness. He ranked third among all players at the 2020 NFL Combine in both vertical jump (42 inches) and broad jump (138 inches).

3. Brandon Aiyuk, Arizona State

Brandon Aiyuk seems to be making a late climb up draft boards, but in such a loaded class he's far from Day 1 lock. He's another explosive athlete (128-inch broad and 40-inch vertical jump), and he put up 1,192 yards with 8 touchdowns in 2019. Aiyuk is also a young prospect, having just turned 22 years old in March.
