Davante Adams is a fan of loads of broad receivers.
The Las Vegas Raiders star was requested about his checklist of the highest 5 broad receivers within the NFL throughout an interview with Brandon Marshall for the I Am Athlete podcast and proceeded to checklist greater than 5, together with himself:
1. Davante Adams
2a. Justin Jefferson
2b. Tyreek Hill
3. Stefon Diggs
4. Calvin Ridley
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.
As for Lamb, Adams stated the Dallas Cowboys broad receiver reminds him of himself.
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.
It is exhausting to argue with that confidence given the manufacturing.
