Starter: Justin Jefferson | LSU
Behind Joe Burrow’s otherwordly production was an equally impressive cast of pass-catchers, headlined by the Tigers’ junior star Justin Jefferson.
Jefferson’s stat sheets show just how much of a safety valve he was in that LSU offense. His 111 receptions, 1540 receiving yards, and 18 receiving touchdowns were all top three in the FBS. One of the biggest statistical monsters in the league, Jefferson easily made this list as a starter.
Starter: Omar Bayless | Arkansas State
Tied at the hip with Jefferson in yards and touchdowns is Arkansas State’s Omar Bayless, a lesser-regarded NFL prospect, but one with some of the best college production out of anyone in 2019.
His 93 catches were good for 8th in the NCAA, but the senior was right there with the big-name players with 1,653 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, good for second and third in college football respectively.
Starter: James Proche | SMU
Rounding on the list of starting receivers on the All-Production team is SMU’s James Proche. Similar to Bayless, Proche is a smaller-school prospect that put up big-time numbers in his final college year.
Proche was a sure-handed scoring machine for the Mustangs in 2019, leading the country in catches with 120 and finding the endzone 16 times. His eighth-highest 1,311 receiving yards aren’t too bad, either.
Backup: Devin Duvernay | Texas
I couldn’t just not talk about one of my favorite players in this draft class, Texas’ Devin Duvernay. His trouble finding the endzone (nine receiving touchdowns) keeps him out of the starting lineup, but he’s still an easy addition to the All-Production team.
Duvernay’s 4.39 40-yard speed got him open early and often in college, helping him on route to 106 receptions and 1,386 receiving yards, both top five in the FBS. He’s not one of the most thought of prospects in 2020’s deep receiver class, but he is one of the most productive.
