With Calvin Ridley being a free agent and rumors already swirling of free agent wide receiver Tee Higgins being a possibility in Jacksonville, it's clear the team needs to make a move at wideout. Christian Kirk and Zay Jones are great at what they do, but neither one of them are a real WR1. That's where the team takes their shot at one, here, with Washington's no. 2 guy from last season.

The Huskies will see wide receiver Rome Odunze go high in the first round, but his teammate Ja'Lynn Polk won't be far behind. At 6-foot-2, Polk stands with a frame sizable enough to demand the WR1 title. He runs seamless routes and is fluid in and out of his breaks, working his way into soft spots in zone defense on the regular.

Polk is fantastic at the catch point. What he does there is really a work of art; true magic, at times. His hands are some of the best you'll see in this class, and he makes catches in traffic look routine. He is strong enough to shed tacklers but also has the wherewithal, after the catch, to create a path to moving the chains or scoring.

Polk is a great value in the second round, too, because he very well could climb into the bottom of the first. Jacksonville's offense just got a serious playmaker.
