Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama

If you aren't already familiar with him, he is being projected as the next top 5 WR taken. The player comps have been ALL over the place: Julio (I guess just because they both played at Bama? Body types aren't remotely close), ODB (because of smoothness in routes), to various other studs.

Here is PFF giving him some love: ... -nfl-draft
We’ll have a whole year to poke holes in Jeudy’s game, but I find it extremely difficult to envision a scenario where, without off-field concerns or injury, Jeudy isn’t a top-10 pick and the first receiver off the board when he declares for the draft. Saying 10 is even being conservative, as there aren’t five better players returning to college football next year. The biggest knock on Jeudy is that he doesn’t look like Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones. At 6-1, 192 pounds, he’s far from the prototype size, yet he’s firmly in the best receiver prospect since [insert favorite WR prospect] conversation.
Mel Kiper has him at #1 on his Big Board: ... nfl-draft/

And another one: ... y-best-wr/
Jerry Jeudy will not only be the best wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft, but he is also the best prospect at the position in recent memory.
Here is PFF discussing 2020 prospects with Jeudy near the start of the video: ***I give up on trying to make youtube videos work here, if someone wants to fix it go for it.

His start/stop ability seems to be off the charts. This is something I actually wanted to discuss as I am already at the point of looking past all the glowing reports and projections. When I watch him, I get this uncomfortable/confused feeling. There is something about the way he moves that makes me feel that way. I am not certain if it is ONLY his start/stopping or not, but perhaps it is the fact that most WRs after the catch don't stop like that? Most are just trying to get downfield in a hurry or just go down in situations that he keeps alive? It could also be he appears to be very high-waisted, so those stop movements are more... gangly? He also uses a false high step at times that causes some confusion as well. It could also be why DBs seem to have a LOT of trouble with him. I'm wondering if anyone else sees/feels the same thing.

*Was sad to see how this section of DLF has fallen off. So I'm going to post a few threads to see if we can get it rolling again.

Thanks for the topic Lumps.

My player comp for Jeudy is Wes Chandler.

I hear you on the appearing to be high-waisted and just looks "different" out there.

It will be interesting to see how the next college football season goes for many of these prospects and to see how everything shakes out at the combine and draft. This truly has the look of a really good class coming up and I won't be surprised if Jeudy is a top 10 NFL pick and top 3 dynasty pick.

he's interesting. the body is def a concern, his play reminds me of Calvin Ridley + Amari but he does more after the catch
