USC’s Drake London was one of the most dominant wide receivers in the college game in 2021. In just eight games played, the junior was able to put up nearly 1,100 yards and catch seven touchdowns. While his numbers were impressive, he passes the eye test with flying colors, too. London has great height, standing at 6 feet 5 inches tall, but has a bit of a wiry frame that will be worked on at the next level.
London is regarded as the best possession receiver in the class and is a strong runner with the ball, a good combination for yards after catch. But one trait that he has that will be ultra-attractive to Mike McDaniel is his ability in the run blocking game. The new Dolphins head coach has spoken about the importance of wide outs that can block in his running schemes, and London is excellent in that regard.
One of the most widely used comparisons for London is Keenan Allen, a player type that any team would love to get their hands on. It is somewhat unlikely that he will drop all the way down to 29, but the exact order of the wide receiver hierarchy for the 2022 class is generally disputed.
