Mel Kiper Jr. updates where Texas wide receivers rank at position

The NFL scouting combine is complete. With that, those that cover the NFL draft are updating their rankings.

In case you weren’t sure, Texas wide receivers Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell greatly helped their draft cases at the combine. Both receivers excelled in several tests with Worthy setting the NFL combine record for the 40-yard dash running it in 4.21 seconds.

The two receivers’ display has them moving up ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr.’s rankings. Kiper has Xavier Worthy ranked as the No. 5 receiver with Adonai Mitchell right after at No. 6. In a deep receiver class, both players could see their name drafted in the first round.

Marvin Harrison Jr. (Ohio State), Rome Odunze (Washington) and LSU receivers Malik Nabers and Brian Thomas Jr. are all seen as top prospects for the upcoming draft. They make up the top four of Kiper’s receiver rankings.

Texas has a chance to have its best receiver draft in a long while. Worthy and Mitchell will hope to have their names called in the first round.
