The 2020 NFL Draft is drawing closer every day. With the Giants and Jets both currently set to pick in the first 11 selections, we'll be taking an in-depth look at some of the prospects who could soon call New York home.
Here's a look at Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb ...

Prospect Overview (from NFL.com)
Explosive, three-level playmaker and vital cog in one of the most potent offensive machines in college football over the last three seasons. Lamb uses speed and separation quickness to dominate competition in a scheme that frequently created open throws in space. His routes will need to become more efficient and crisp to beat man-to-man coverage against NFL size and speed, but his ball skills and explosiveness with the ball in his hand should allow teams to scheme him into explosive opportunities right away. Lamb has the potential to play any of the three receiver positions as a pro and should benefit greatly from the NFL's continued movement toward college-style passing attacks.
In CBS Sports' Ryan Wilson's mock last week, he had the Jets going for wide receiver help, taking Lamb over Jerry Jeudy.
Wilson argued that the Jets adding offensive line help via free agency "frees them up to get Sam Darnold some weapons and CeeDee Lamb is the best WR in this draft class."
NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah also has mocked Lamb to the Jets, saying "The Jets need to continue to upgrade the O-line, but they must weigh taking the fourth-best OT versus the top wideout. Sam Darnold needs some dynamic players around him."
