After helping lead the Oklahoma Sooners to three College Football Playoff berths in as many seasons and becoming a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, WR CeeDee Lamb has announced that he will enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

Lamb, a junior out of Foster HS in Richmond, Texas, has caught 63 passes for 1,327 yards (21.4 avg.) while hauling in 14 touchdowns during his third season in Norman. He’s saved some of his finest performances for Oklahoma’s biggest games, including his 10-reception, 171-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Texas Longhorns in Dallas.

For his career, Lamb has amassed 173 receptions, 3,292 receiving yards, 32 touchdown receptions, a rushing touchdown and a touchdown pass. However, the stats don’t tell the full story. During his time in Norman, he’s proven to have the most complete skill set of any receiver in school history, which includes his proficiency as a downfield blocker. Because of this, he’s well-entrenched in the debate over who is the best receiver in school history (my vote goes to Lamb) and is expected to be a top-10 selection in April’s NFL Draft.
