Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama

The Raiders have been looking for a true outside weapon to complement Derek Carr for some time now, and in 2019 that was thought to be Antonio Brown. We all know how that turned out, what a debacle, but with him it’s not surprising.

With that said Derek Carr has a cannon of an arm and is more accurate than people give him credit for. And he can make the throw downfield to a wide open Henry Ruggs III.

Ruggs is a true burner who can get separation with his acceleration and change up to fastball route speed. His soft reliable hands catch it inside and outside the frame. Shows toughness as a runner with the willingness to drop pads and finish. Also is a talented kick returner as an added bonus, or for when the situation calls.

Can he be the answer to the Antonio Brown vacuum? I don’t know, only time will tell, but it’s a damn good start.
