7: Will Fuller, Wide Receiver

The presumed top wide receiver comes in at seventh overall. Even with a myriad of injuries throughout the years, Will Fuller’s chemistry with Deshaun Watson is obvious. Whether or not Fuller is re-signed long term is yet to be determined, but he should be in the long-term plans as long as Watson is the quarterback.

Fuller’s 670 yards and three touchdowns in 2019 were decent contributions, but with the departure of DeAndre Hopkins, those numbers should rise even with the addition of Brandin Cooks.

The injury risk will always be there with Fuller, but the respect he commands from opposing defenses as a deep threat burner will help along with Cooks in 2020.

6: Nick Martin, Center

In the middle of the offensive line, Nick Martin has been a stalwart center that has grown more with each season. While he didn’t pop instantly like his brother Zack Martin of the Dallas Cowboys, Nick Martin has improved each season and hasn’t missed a game since his rookie year.

In 2019, he only allowed two sacks, which was tied for ninth among centers, and he has four accepted penalties which was tied for 13th among centers.

While he might not be a Travis Frederick-level center in his career, Martin has shown he is starting to be worth the extension given to him.
