What the Analysts Say
KJ Hamler is one of the most dynamic and electric offensive weapons in the 2020 class. His burst is off-the-charts and he’s going to be a difficult cover for NFL defensive backs…The physical components of the game will be difficult despite his scrappy mentality and his catch radius is very small. In addition, Hamler’s hands need to improve and contested situations will be hard for him to find success in. -Joe Marino, The Draft Network
Explosive slot target who hits the scales as a lightweight but could have heavyweight impact on games. Hamler’s blazing speed is used solo and in route combinations to stress secondaries and create big plays. He had an alarming number of drops in 2019 and the routes are ragged, but his athleticism and separation burst on all three levels helps mitigate those concerns. – Lance Zierlein, NFL Network

KJ Hamler joins a huge WR room, including 1st round pick Jerry Jeudy. Drew Lock now has two great receivers to throw to, overhauling their receiver room. Hamler is an interesting pick – he can definitely be the return man they’ve been looking for and can fill in on jet sweeps and other gadget plays.
