JJ was Stanford’s best player this season, finishing 2018 with 63 catches for 1,059 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns.
Arcega-Whiteside will likely go in the first two or three rounds of the draft, with some mock drafts showing him as a first round pick. Chris Trapasso of CBS Sports compared his game and frame to Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
