Though the final stretch of the 2020 season is still unfolding, Pro Football Focus taking a look at the 2021 free agent class — which includes several Detroit Lions this year.

PFF released their list of top 100 free agents and wide receiver Kenny Golladay came in at number 4.

“Golladay has the size and athleticism required to be a big target on the outside, along with that contested-catch prowess, but he also possesses enough nuance in his route running to function well in any system,” PFF explains.

The site also praised his connection with Matthew Stafford, saying his presence on the field makes a huge difference in the quarterback’s performance.

“Stafford is a different player when Golladay is on the field, and the wideout clearly has confidence in his ability to go up and get the football in tough spots,” they write.

PFF also predicted what will end up happening with Golladay’s contract — they believe the Lions will franchise tag the star receiver for 2021, and won’t reach a deal before the season starts.

Also on PFF’s list are Marvin Jones Jr., Romeo Okwara, and Danny Amendola. Click here to read the whole article.
