Henry Ruggs has elite speed and will be the fastest receiver on the field, in most competitions. He will need to develop his route running but has home run capability once the ball is in his hands. Ruggs transitions upfield with ease and is muscularly strong. He will be tested on press coverage and has good strength in his hands as he only dropped the ball once in 2019. Ruggs’ will need to compete with Tyrell Williams, but Ruggs should win. The offense scheme is probably what is worrisome for Ruggs. How will he be used, and can Derek Carr be productive with him?
Dynasty Spin: Ruggs’ speed is super-human, but so was John Ross and many other wide receivers who have not performed to expectations. However, it doesn’t mean that Ruggs won't be a stud. The Raiders' conservative offense is a bit worrisome, and can Carr utilize Ruggs in a way to maximize his talents? There is a massive ceiling for him if it all works. Ruggs is going as a late first-round receiver in rookie leagues and as a seventh-rounder in start-ups.
