Henry Ruggs
21-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Injury Thigh
2020 Fantasy Outlook
An elite athlete, Ruggs is longer on physical skills than college production. Not that his 18 touchdowns over 26 games are anything to sneeze at, but his numbers pale in comparison to those of fellow top prospects Jerry Jeudy (his Alabama teammate) and CeeDee Lamb. Where Ruggs has them beat, however, is in pure speed and explosiveness. He ran a blistering 4.27 40 at the combine, and his 42-inch vertical and 131-inch broad jump were similarly off the charts. At 5-11, 188, Ruggs is small, though slightly larger than other NFL speedsters like Tyreek Hill and DeSean Jackson. The question is what kind of role he'll have at the NFL level. There's no doubt he'll slot in as the Raiders' key field stretcher and big-play threat - after all, he was the first receiver chosen at pick 12. But there's a big difference between getting Jackson's 90-100 targets per year and Hill's 135-140, and Ruggs has competition from tight end Darren Waller, slot man Hunter Renfrow, wideout Tyrell Williams and fellow rookie Bryan Edwards.

Should be ready for training camp
WRLas Vegas Raiders
June 11, 2020
Ruggs, who injured his thigh last month while helping a friend move, needed stitches to address the issue but didn't sustain any muscular damage, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
As a result, the first wideout selected in the 2020 NFL Draft is expected to be ready for training camp. Although Vic Tafur of The Athletic previously reported that Ruggs was using crutches for a time after his off-field mishap, Thursday's report confirms that the speedster's injury was minor. Once the Raiders take the field, Ruggs will profile as a field-stretcher with big-play ability who the team will utilize in a receiving corps that also includes Tyrell Williams, slot man Hunter Renfrow and fellow rookie Bryan Edwards.
