5a. Mike Evans

5b. CeeDee Lamb

Adams additionally gave a shout out to Ja’Marr Chase, Cooper Kupp and DeAndre Hopkins and admitted he could not comprise his checklist to only 5 names.

Whereas there isn’t any arguing with the expertise of all of the pass-catchers he talked about, seeing Ridley and Lamb specifically over names comparable to A.J. Brown, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Keenan Allen and others may be shocking to some.

That’s very true since Ridley was suspended for the 2022 season and performed simply 5 video games throughout the 2021 marketing campaign, which means he may be off the radar for some followers. Nevertheless, Adams clearly believes the Jacksonville Jaguars playmaker is in line for a wonderful season with Trevor Lawrence throwing him the ball.

Ridley was wonderful in 2020 with 90 catches for 1,374 yards and 9 touchdowns on the Atlanta Falcons and shall be surrounded by playoff-caliber expertise in Jacksonville. He seemingly will not face too many double groups and will surpass the 1,000-yard mark once more now that he has returned.

That’s excessive reward contemplating the Raiders star is a six-time Professional Bowler and three-time All-Professional with greater than 1,300 receiving yards in 4 of the final 5 seasons. He completed the 2022 marketing campaign—his first away from the Las Vegas Raiders—with 100 catches for 1,516 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns.

“I am unable to say that anyone is healthier than me at my place within the league,” he stated when speaking about placing himself at No. 1.
