2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

Career Snapshot
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-America honors, led the SEC with 14 touchdown receptions and caught 68 passes for 1,315 yards as a sophomore in 2018. Earned First Team All-SEC honors and made 77 receptions for 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior in 2019.

Positives
Game-breaking receiver who alters the momentum of contests whenever the ball is in his hands. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, immediately gets to top speed and has a tremendous burst of speed. Runs with great routes, displays incredible quickness into breaks and separates from opponents.

Possesses soft hands, shows a lot of ability after the catch and is lethal when given any open space. Nicely makes the over-the-shoulder reception in the deep field at full speed. Plays with balance and body control and possesses outstanding hand-eye coordination. Shows a lot of route discipline.

Negatives
Unnecessarily lets the pass inside him and body-catches on occasion. Lacks physicality, does not like contact and gathers into tackles. Runs out of bounds often to finish plays. Will struggle with press coverage in the NFL.

Analysis
Jeudy is a sensational athlete with home run hitting speed that he uses at receiver and as a return specialist. He’s not stout or strong, and I’d like to see Jeudy step up the physical nature of his game, but he will be very effective in the proper system at the next level.
