1. Xavier Worthy, WR, Texas

Worthy came into the Combine, in the minds of some, as the third-best pass catcher from his own team, having been leapfrogged by standout receiver Adonai Mitchell and consensus TE2 Ja'Tavion Sanders. After the Combine, it seems unlikely that Worthy will be able to last until the start of the second round.

Worthy became the star of the event by breaking John Ross' record and running a mind-warping 4.21 40-yard dash. Perhaps equally impressive, Worth's glacial 4.25 40-yard run in his first attempt produced a 1.39 10-yard split, which is also the best ever recorded at the Combine.

The Baltimore Ravens could draft Xavier Worthy

Worthy recorded 981 yards and 12 touchdowns as a freshman, and he managed to stay just as productive as a junior with 1,014 yards and five touchdowns as Quinn Ewers' top vertical threat. His physical limitation at 165 pounds is very obvious, but that speed is quite literally unprecedented.

While adding two receivers that are below 185 pounds in Worthy and speedster Zay Flowers in consecutive seasons could make for a bit of a hard sell, there's no substitute for Worthy's electricity. The second he steps on the field, Worthy has 1,000-yard potential as a vertical burner and playmaker with the ball in his hands.
