CARSON STRONG, NEVADA

2021 PFF Grade: 89.3
2021 Snaps: 829
PFF Big Board Rank: 65

No quarterback in this top 100 shouldered a bigger load as a passer. Strong had a six-game stretch toward the end of the season where he dropped back to pass over 50 times in every game. Still, he finished with a career-high 89.9 passing grade this season.

MALIK WILLIS, LIBERTY

2021 PFF Grade: 91.7
2021 Snaps: 830
PFF Big Board Rank: 22

Willis is an electric playmaker. However, the Liberty quarterback is still far too much of a roller coaster from game to game. He did, however, have the second-highest big-time throw rate we've ever charted (11.0%).

DAVID BELL, PURDUE

2021 PFF Grade: 87.5
2021 Snaps: 739
PFF Big Board Rank: 85

Bell ticks a ton of boxes you want to see for the position, but he doesn't profile as a consistent downfield separator at the next level.

TREYLON BURKS, ARKANSAS

2021 PFF Grade: 85.2
2021 Snaps: 717
PFF Big Board Rank: 29

Burks' combination of size (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) and speed is unrivaled in the class. He racked up 1,100 yards and 11 scores last season. The true junior should be a vertical weapon in the NFL.

DAI'JEAN DIXON, NICHOLLS STATE

JAHAN DOTSON, PENN STATE

2021 PFF Grade: 87.5
2021 Snaps: 768
PFF Big Board Rank: 42

Dotson is one of the most difficult receivers to cover in the class. While he has some size concerns at only 5-foot-11 and 184 pounds, Dotson played through contact more than enough to alleviate any worries. He dropped only two of his 93 catchable targets last season.

ROMEO DOUBS, NEVADA

2021 PFF Grade: 81.7
2021 Snaps: 698
PFF Big Board Rank: 97

Doubs has a lot of traits you look for in a receiver, but it remains to be seen if his trump-card downfield ability will translate against better competition.

DRAKE LONDON, USC

2021 PFF Grade: 91.3
2021 Snaps: 490
PFF Big Board Rank: 10

It's a shame London's season ended with a broken ankle after only eight games because he was on an unmatched statistical tear, racking up 88 catches for 1,084 yards and seven scores over that span. He's a massive 6-foot-5, 210-pounder who still led college football with 19 contested catches.

2021 PFF Grade: 78.2
2021 Snaps: 774

SKYY MOORE, WESTERN MICHIGAN

2021 PFF Grade: 91.6
2021 Snaps: 824
PFF Big Board Rank: 30

Moore has the elite shiftiness that plays so well at the receiver position. Whether it's shaking press coverage or breaking an FBS-high 26 tackles last year, Moore will make defenders miss ease.

CHRIS OLAVE, OHIO STATE

2021 PFF Grade: 79.3
2021 Snaps: 687

2021 PFF Grade: 73.5
2021 Snaps: 477

2021 PFF Grade: 82.3

2021 Snaps: 832
