Which top-ranked wide receiver should the Las Vegas Raiders select?
There are a lot of experts who consider Jerry Jeudy the best wide receiver to come out of college since, at least, Julio Jones. Jeudy is a polished route-runner with elite ability to create separation against defensive backs with ease.
Jeudy is exceptional at finding soft-spots in a zone, and has big play speed as well. Additionally, many scouts expect him to play a lot of slot receiver in the NFL. He is truly a do-it-all wide receiver.
He is strong against every type of coverage, and has the ability to be an elite number one option for almost any team in the NFL.
Over the last two seasons at Alabama, Jeudy racked up 2,478 receiving yards, adding 24 total touchdown catches. He was the most prolific receiver in the NCAA, proving himself over and over as a nightmare for opposing SEC defenses.
Jeudy can make a profound impact on all three levels of the field, and is likely the most NFL-ready receiver that this draft has to offer. The first thing that will come to mind when watching Jeudy play is “polished”. He is used to a pro-style offense, and has experience against some of the best defensive back prospects over the last few years. Jeudy would immediately change the Raiders’ offense.
