On paper, the 2020 NFL Draft class looks to be the greatest wide receiver class of all time. With many legitimate day one starters, teams appear to have an embarrassment of riches to choose from. However, this also makes it harder to rank these players on draft boards, which is why we have seen the odds at FanDuel Sportsbook continue to change for which wide receiver will be drafted first.

Recently, the NFL Draft odds have shifted yet again, with CeeDee Lamb being the favorite to be the first wide receiver off the board, at +120 odds. This moves him ahead of Jerry Jeudy (+130), who has long been projected as the top wide receiver in this draft class.

Lamb was a monster at Oklahoma, totaling over 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdown totals in each of his last two seasons. He looks to be the big play threat that many teams are searching for.

Alabama's Jeudy has often been touted as the most complete receiver in the draft and, like Lamb, he also totaled over 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdown totals in each of the past two seasons. While the draft is deep at wide receiver, there appears to be a clear top-three prospects, with Jeudy's teammate Henry Ruggs III being third in the odds (+300).

Following Ruggs, there is a big drop in the odds on FanDuel Sportsbook, with Justin Jefferson (+6000), K.J. Hamler (+10000) and Tee Higgins (+10000) being the other choices to be the first wide receiver off the board.
