Rightfully so, Jerry Jeudy has been considered one of the top wide receivers in the draft, and it won’t be long before the Alabama star is making a similar impact in the NFL like he did over the last few years with the Crimson Tide.
Over his final two seasons at Alabama, Jeudy ended up catching 145 passes for 2,478 yards to go along with 24 touchdowns, proving to be an absolute nightmare for opponents on a weekly basis.
Clearly, these numbers could have been a little higher if it weren’t for Jeudy playing alongside one of his teammates in Henry Ruggs III, who is also projected to be selected in the first round as well.
But if there is anything to take away from this factor, it should be how much Jeudy benefits from playing alongside reliable receivers on offense, and joining the Eagles would provide the young wideout with a little extra time to adjust on offense before having to become the top target.
With both Jackson and Jeffery expected to return for 2020, Jeudy would be able to start his NFL career off by benefitting from playing alongside these veterans while possibly seeing additional passes thrown in his direction if opponents are focused on other Eagles receivers.
