The wide receiver class of the 2020 NFL draft was stacked with talent and widely considered one of the position’s better prospect groups in recent years.

Minnesota Vikings’ receiver Justin Jefferson was selected with the 22nd pick in the draft. He has already established himself as a premier threat in the NFL, leaving multiple teams looking back and shaking their heads over passing him over.
