A Senior Bowl standout, Ricky Pearsall is quickly rising up draft boards. He spent his first 3 seasons at Arizona before transferring to Florida this year where he had his best season yet. A complete route runner and separator, Pearsall is know as "slicky Ricky" by teammates for his knack to get open. He has above average straight line speed and excellent hands. At 6'0", 190 lbs., he's not winning most contested catch situations, but that's not his profile.

The Chiefs are likely not a single WR away from being an elite offense but Pearsall makes it much easier to see. Andy Reid offenses have always utilized average sized WR who create space and that's what Pearsall does. He makes a nice intermediate target for Patrick Mahomes who can beat man coverage.
