When the Raiders selected Henry Ruggs with the 12th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, surely the team expected more than what Ruggs was able to provide in a disappointing rookie season. Ruggs managed just 26 receptions for 452 yards and two touchdowns, disappearing for entire stretches of games. Las Vegas was banking on Ruggs' elite speed (4.27-second, forty-yard dash at the NFL combine) providing a big-play element to an offense sorely lacking in the category. He showed some flashes of that game-changing ability, notching four receptions of at least 45 yards. He had a pair of those long receptions in a Week 5 upset of the Chiefs, finishing with a season-best 118 receiving yards on just two receptions. However, he only managed one more big play the rest of the way. Raiders GM Mike Mayock targeted areas Ruggs must improve upon to have an impact moving forward: â€"We knew how fast he is, but he's got to get stronger and he's got to get in and out of his breaks better. You've got to feel him coming out of his breaks more for him to get to the next level.” With Nelson Agholor now in New England, the door is again wide open for Ruggs to emerge as the WR1 for the Raiders. He just turned 22-years old and still has plenty of upside if he can put it all together, which makes him an intriguing boom-or-bust pick in the later rounds of fantasy drafts.
