This might be the best receiver class I’ve ever seen. Jerry Jeudy reminds me quite a bit of another Alabama product, Julio Jones. He makes my top 5 overall prospects. Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb is just a hair behind him. I’ve got him in my top 10. Henry Ruggs, also from Alabama, is a speedster who will give defenses fits. This class is very deep, with 14 players earning 1st or 2nd-round grades from your author. Penn State’s K.J. Hamler should be available in round 2; his hands leave something to be desired, but his tape reminds of Tyreek Hill. Devin Duvernay was extremely productive for the Longhorns and turned in a great Combine. Donovan Peoples-Jones from Michigan leaped almost out of the building in Indianapolis. He also ran well, leading your author to believe that his lack of production in the Maize and Blue was a product of dysfunction in the offense and at the QB position, rather than an issue with the former 5-star recruit.
