A couple weeks ago, I introduced my opportunity scores model, which combines a few metrics for position group strength with best ball average draft position (ADP) to quantify which teams have the most opportunity for rookie wide receivers and running backs in 2020. After Round 1, I looked into the opportunity for all wide receivers and running backs drafted and added commentary around where I expect ADPs to move post-draft.

Below, I’ll update the opportunity scores for wide receivers drafted in the second and third rounds. I'll also walk through the ADPs of the position group each selection is joining, highlighting whether the rookie addition should slot in immediately as a strong producer and have a clear window to WR1 or WR2 status in the near future.
PICK 33: TEE HIGGINS, CINCINNATI BENGALS
Tee Higgins was the first player taken in the second round. Higgins' ADP has fallen to WR71 over the last couple months but could recover some, especially if A.J. Green trade rumors heat up.
