Which Team Will Draft Jerry Jeudy?
2020 NFL Draft
Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is either going to be the first or second wide receiver selected in the 2020 NFL draft and there’s a prop bet on which team will draft him. Let’s breakdown some of the teams favored to draft Jeudy and try to make some quick cash come draft night.
Las Vegas Raiders, +300 - The Las Vegas Raiders need to make a splash to appeal to potential new fans and having a receiver like Jeudy is a splashy move. The Raiders also need a wide receiver, as Tyrell Williams and Hunter Renfrow are nice depth options, but neither screams No. 1 target who changes the whole feel of the offense. The Raiders can only hope Jeudy is on the board at No. 12.
San Francisco 49ers, +300 - The San Francisco 49ers need a receiver after losing Emmanuel Sanders and have two first round picks they can use. With that No. 13 overall pick, the 49ers would think very hard on Jeudy if he’s still on the board.
Denver Broncos, +300 - The Denver Broncos have a new quarterback they’re trying to make comfortable in Drew Lock and surrounding him with as much talent as possible only helps his potential. Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick are nice starting points, but neither have the upside of Jeudy. At 15 overall, the Broncos would certainly be in the market if possible.
New York Jets, +325 - The New York Jets have issues along the offensive line they need to fix with the 11th overall pick, but they also need receiver help after losing Robby Anderson in free agency. The Jets need to help Sam Darnold if they’re serious about him being their franchise quarterback. A receiver such as Jeudy would be a terrific step in the right direction.
Philadelphia Eagles, +1200 - The only way the Philadelphia Eagles end up with Jeudy is if they make a trade, and it would take a lot to move from 21 overall to in the top-15 range. I wouldn’t pay the Eagles much mind in snagging the Alabama wide receiver.
Pick: New York Jets. Out of these teams, the New York Jets have the first chance to get Jeudy at the No. 11 spot and it’s going to be tough to pass him up if he’s still on the board. The Jets do have other areas they need to fill, but I’d consider giving Darnold an elite weapon on the outside an area of need and a move that could change the entire feel of this Jets offense. For a more than reasonable price and with the first real chance to take him, I’ll bet on the Jets selecting Jeudy.
