1. Jerry Jeudy WR, Alabama
We aren’t that far removed from people freaking out about a potential knee injury scaring teams away from Jerry Jeudy and I can’t help but remember how so many players who “would never drop that far” dropped on draft day.
Every year this happens in the draft and people just choose to forget about it and gloss over it, but that is what happens even when teams get a chance to put prospects through the combine medical, the combine rechecks and private visits with their own doctors. Imagine what is going to happen when they only get one of their three fail-safes that they are used to.
Jerry Jeudy is an elite talent in any draft and in any other year I would think that he could never fall that far even if the knee rumors were true, I mean why would the Jacksonville Jaguars, Las Vegas Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, and Miami Dolphins choose to pass on a guy 9 times with that kind of talent?
But, if I have said it once I have said it a dozen times: this WR class is deep. If there is even a slight question about Jeudy then the first receiver drafted will be CeeDee Lamb. Then if the Broncos really do love Ruggs, maybe he is the pick for them at 15, and from there who knows what could happen and what teams would pick a WR over another need on their board.
Jeudy is the best route runner in recent memory by all accounts and imagine a defense being forced to play him perfectly while also being scared to death of A.J. Brown or Derrick Henry getting loose in the open field. Whew.
