Bleacher report released their projected top 10 WR’s for 2020. Somehow, Oklahoma receiver, Charleston Rambo, did not make the list..
While this is just a projection, the fact that Rambo isn’t listed here is blasphemy if you ask me. Year after year Oklahoma has one of the strongest WR corps in the league. 2 years ago it was led by “Hollywood” Brown, Last year it was led by Cee Dee Lamb, and next year it looks like it will be led by Charleston Rambo.
First off, Rambo’s 2019 stats were on par or better than most WRs on this list.
|10||Amon-Ra St. Brown||13.5||1042||6|
Even so, the stats don’t reflect everything. While every player on Bleacher Report’s list is impressive, what really earns Rambo a spot on this list is the opportunity that he has. In 2020 he will likely become Spencer Rattler’s prime target considering he’s most experienced out of the Haselwood, Wease, and Rambo trio. Not only that but assuming Oklahoma continues their current trend – and there’s no evidence to suggest they’re slowing down – he will be on one of the most prolific offenses in the league. Combine that will his proven skill and athleticism and its a recipe for video game like numbers. The only WR’s on this list I see that are in a similar boat are Ja’Marr Chase, DeVonta Smith, and Justyn Ross.
Keep in mind Jadon Haselwood and Theo Wease Jr. are not far behind Rambo. Chances are Rambo will assume the leadership/primary target role due to his experience but the other guys aren’t just going to sit back and watch these guys can ball and they’re putting in the work.
So by the end of 2020 we should see Rambo on this list. With that said, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a different Oklahoma receiver.
