Jerry Jeudy’s One Big Weakness
Jerry Jeudy’s one big weakness heading into the 2020 NFL Draft is finally coming under scrutiny. That one big weakness? Being unable to fully deliver when the ball in the air is contested.
Pro Football Focus recently said this much during a recent analysis of what Jeudy brings to the table.
“This guy is 193 pounds, six-one, he’s a skinny dude and he had only 24 contested opportunities in his entire college career,” PFF said.

“He will see more than that in year one at the next level… He will have to play through contact far more than he ever did at Alabama and we just don’t know how he is going to hold up. Yes he can avoid it.
“Yes he’s so good at his route running. He can play away from contact but that’s not always a possible option for you in the NFL. He’s going to have to play through contact and we don’t know how it’s going to go for him.”
Will Jeudy go in the top ten come this April? We’re just a few weeks away from finding out once and for all.
