Puka Nacua The Steal of the 2023 NFL Draft


Los Angeles Rams rookie wideout Puka Nacua continues to be the steal of the 2023 NFL Draft.

On Sunday, the player chosen with the 177th overall selection last April reached the 1,000-yard mark for the season and did so in style, connecting with Matthew Stafford for a 70-yard touchdown against a vaunted Cleveland Browns defense. Even better for L.A., Nakua is helping keep Sean McVay’s squad in playoff contention in what is shaping up to be a murky NFC wild-card picture in what was supposed to be a rebuilding season. There is still a month and a half of football left to play, but if the Rams can sneak in to a wild-card spot, their super rookie will be a big reason why.

Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. In NFL history, 30 players have totaled 1,000 or more receiving yards in their first season in the league, including Nacua, who has an outside chance to sit atop this list at the end of this season. So with that in mind, how many of the 30 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!
