Both receivers were dynamic in their own right. Olave finished his career as the program’s all-time leader in touchdown catches, but it was Wilson that had the edge in catches and receiving yards during 2021 with 70 catches for 1,058 yards.
Most publications are projecting both receivers to be first-round picks, though most have Wilson coming off the board first. In PFF’s latest mock draft, Wilson is selected No. 13 by the Browns while Olave is selected No. 21 by the Patriots.
It will be interesting to see who posts the better 40-yard dash time in Indy and who comes off the board first in April’s draft.
