[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I recently came out with my Farrell50 at the wide receiver position for the 2022 season. Here’s the entire list and explanations of some of the more controversial picks in each group of 10.
Luther Burden at No. 47 raised some eyebrows since he’s a true freshman and hasn’t played a snap but he’s as talented as any WR in this class. Milton Wright at No. 43 puzzled some and I know he’s been rumored to be academically ineligible for Purdue and all but he’s not in the portal so I kept him in. Many felt Gary Bryant should be at 45 instead of Tajh Washington for USC but I’m looking at a bounce-back year for the one time Memphis star. And Ainias Smith at Texas A&M was too low for many and that could be the case if he comes back strong.
Marvin Harrison Jr. at No. 38 was way too low for many and I got a lot of “he’ll be higher by years end”. Duh. Of course he will if he stays healthy and projects out but right now he’s not higher. Many felt Jadon Haselwood should be higher for Arkansas as he replaces Treylon Burks but I want to see it first.
Alabama true freshman Aaron Anderson at No. 30 raised some eyebrows but just watch and see. He’s Jaylen Waddle 2.0. Ladd McConkey over Adonai Mitchell ticked off some UGA fans and Mitchell is probably the biggest slight not being on the list and I expect to be proven wrong. It happens. Some (mostly Oklahoma fans) thought Mario Williams from USC at 21 was way too high and based on his ranking out of HS and perhaps they are right. Keytaon Thompson was too low for some at No. 29.
UGA fans took exception to Jermaine Burton being No. 19 ahead of players he was behind on the depth chart but we will see as I have him as WR1 for Bama. Mitchell Tinsley ahead of Parker Washington at Penn State drew some attention. And many felt there’s no way PSU has two in the top 20. We will see how good Sean Clifford really is.
Not much here honestly. Almost everyone felt Jaxon Smith-Njigba should be No. 1 and those who didn’t felt it was Jordan Addison at USC or Xavier Worthy from Texas so LSU’s Kayshon Boutte at No. 3 drew some attention but overall the top 10 wasn’t discussed as much as expected.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
