2021 NFL Draft: 3 Big Ten prospects the New Orleans Saints should target
Another wide receiver that serves as an elite deep threat is Ohio State’s Chris Olave. Playing with Heisman trophy finalist Justin Fields, Olave was one of several highly talented receivers on the Buckeyes roster.
Had a season actually happened, he’d again be among the nation’s best receivers but in more of a leadership role as a junior.
As a sophomore, Olave picked up 840 yards on 48 receptions. Almost a 20 yards per catch average, Olave made one crucial mistake in the CFP semifinal game that arguably cost Ohio State the game.
He wanted to avenge that this season with Fields back as well, and although he didn’t need to as he’ll likely be a first-round pick, Olave should’ve wanted to play, to have another shot at the CFP glory.
Olave will be a top target in the 2021 draft given his size and ability to competently catch the deep ball.
All three prospects, who will be missing their respective seasons, should be on New Orleans radar.
