Let’s just get the bold statement out right at the start, D’Wayne Eskridge is THE most lethal WR in this draft class. He doesn’t have the hype surrounding him like Chase, Smith or Waddle; but what he does have is speed, intelligence, route running prowess, and sure hands that won’t drop the ball.
Eskridge started out as a running back in high school, but despite his three star rating, he didn’t receive a lot of interest from college scouts. He would end up signing with Western Michigan and stepped into the spotlight when Corey Davis departed.
In his first two years, Eskridge would end up netting 30 rec for 506 yards (2017), then 38 rec for 776 yards and 3TDs. Because of injuries, Eskridge would switch to CB and actually led the team in coverage stats before becoming a full time WR again his Red shirt senior year.
