The 2021 NFL Draft class features one of the most talented groups of wide receivers we've seen in a while. But as good as this crew is, it'll be tough to top what last year's rookies, like Justin Jefferson, did in 2020.

With so much talent available, it may be a bit of a surprise to see that LSU's Ja'Marr Chase has established himself as the consensus best WR prospect in this class.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the odds for who will be the first WR selected in the NFL Draft, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL Draft odds.
