Jerry Jeudy Expert Analysis

Strengths

“Jerry Jeudy is a top shelf receiving prospect with elite footwork, route running ability and suddenness to be a constant big play producer in the NFL. Jeudy offers dynamic foot speed and masterful route running ability and projects favorably to any style passing offense.” โ€” Kyle Crabbs, The Draft Network

“Jeudy is an Odell Beckham Jr.-type wide receiver with fantastic agility and burst. He’s among the cleanest, smoothest route-runners you’ll find in the last decade of pass-catchers. That, plus his agility and speed, makes him the most likely to have a major impact early in his rookie season.” โ€” Matt Miller, Bleacher Report

Weaknesses

“Not immune to drops and they happen too frequently in non contested situations. Frequent body catcher and he has plenty of room to grow with his hands.” โ€” Joe Marino, The Draft Network

“The hands need work and contested catches will be much more challenging against bigger, faster matchups across from him.” โ€” Lance Zierlein, NFL Network

Jerry Jeudy Draft Projections

Mel Kiper, ESPN: 49ers (No. 13)

“Adding Jeudy, who caught 77 passes for 1,163 yards and 10 TDs last season, to a group with Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne makes this a really exciting (and young) trio of wideouts for Jimmy Garoppolo.”

Doug Farrar, Touchdown Wire: Raiders (No. 12)

“Jon Gruden needs a route perfectionist in his highly advanced West Coast offense with its modern designs, and Jeudy would be a perfect fit.”

Will Brinson, CBS: Raiders (No. 12)

“You can see Mike Mayock falling in love with Jeudy’s game, and you can definitely see how Jon Gruden would like Jeudy’s route-running in his offense.”

Matt Miller, Bleacher Report: Raiders (No. 12)

“Thanks to a run on quarterbacks and offensive tackles, the Raiders get extremely lucky with Jerry Jeudy still on the board.”
