#5 WWE RAW: Ricochet (Round 2 draft pick)

Like Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, Ricochet did not fare too badly on WWE RAW in the first few months after the 2019 WWE Draft.

The One and Only had started to establish himself as one of the top babyface singles competitors on the brand, resulting in him challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Super ShowDown in February 2020.

Unfortunately, ever since that dominant loss against Lesnar, Ricochet has never been the same.

At the time, he seemed worthy of being chosen by WWE RAW in the second round of the WWE Draft (pick #8, ahead of Braun Strowman and Alexa Bliss), but that position looks too high when you take into account what has happened in the last 12 months.


#4 WWE SmackDown: Lacey Evans (Round 3 draft pick)

Lacey Evans was selected by WWE SmackDown as the #12 pick in the third round of the 2019 WWE Draft.

The former marine participated in a high-profile storyline with Becky Lynch just a few months before the WWE Draft took place, so she did not look out of place in the #12 position after the roster changes were announced.

Now, on reflection, it is surprising that she was picked ahead of the likes of Kevin Owens (#13) and Natalya (#15).

Evans was even selected ahead of The Revival (#14), the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champions at the time of the WWE Draft.
