The 2024 NFL Draft is projected to be extremely deep at the wide receiver position, with a lot more talent outside of the projected top 10 where we might see Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr., LSU’s Malik Nabers, and Washington’s Rome Odunze already off the board.

Scouts and analysts are working tirelessly to find the diamonds in the rough among all this receiver talent, and analyst Greg Cosell has high praise for a certain two-time national champion.

Cosell said on the “Ross Tucker Podcast” that Georgia wide receiver Ladd McConkey “reminded me of Cooper Kupp coming out of Eastern Washington…beating SEC cornerbacks with no problem at all.”

Cosell stressed that McConkey reminds him of Kupp coming out of college, and not the Kupp we know now who is a triple-crown winner and Super Bowl MVP.

He praised McConkey as a prolific route runner who did an excellent job consistently getting separation in the best conference in college football, which is a skill that many scouts look at as very transferable when making the leap to the NFL.

McConkey didn’t put up massive numbers in college as he always had plenty of competition for targets and sat out a lot of fourth quarters in blowouts, but he still posted 19 total touchdowns in his three years at Georgia.

Kupp’s college stats were historic, as he put up 428 receptions for 6,464 yards and a ridiculous 73 touchdowns in his four years at Eastern Washington.

Looking back, it’s hard to believe Kupp wasn’t drafted higher with those numbers.

McConkey is currently projected as a Day 2 pick.
