A consensus All American and reigning Fred Biletnikoff winner, Alabama star and former five-star recruit Jeudy is ready to follow in the footsteps of players such as Julio Jones and Amari Cooper in becoming a first round NFL draft pick next spring. However, in the months before then JJ has some scores to settle. He will return to the field as one of the star attractions in an Alabama offense that may have the best ‘triplets’ combo in football.
Jeudy has a rare combination of excellence all over the receiver map. With 4.4 speed and route running prowess similar to recent rookie contributors, JJ is an NFL GM’s dream prospect at the receiver position. Coming off a 1,300-yard, 14 touchdown season in the countries toughest college conference Jeudy has the production to back up the hype. His big play ability and yards after the catch have become staples of this Alabama offense, I expect it to continue this season.
Questions to Answer…
Jeudy’s stellar season was a microcosm of Alabama’s offensive output last season. They started the season like a freight train; dispatching opponents that were a class below them before the half. Jeudy feasted in these games. Scoring a combined 10 touchdowns in the months of September and October on just 31 receptions. It looked like men against boys in the early going this season and the quality was rewarded with the Biletnikoff Award.
However, this stellar production was slowed massively as the season headed towards its conclusion. Jeudy only went over 100 yards once in the final two months of the season and recorded a season low of 3 for 24 in the SEC Championship slog against Georgia, and a secondary that contained NFL first rounder DeAndre Baker. JJ will be ready in his junior and most likely final season at this level to prove the big game doubters wrong.
Road to Redemption Leads to NOLA
Alabama will go into this season with a singular goal in mind, a national championship. After being blown out by Clemson in last season’s championship game, this iteration of Alabama star studded roster is dominated by players who have tasted CFP success but not whilst being the leading light on the squad that did so. Bama haven’t had an unbeaten season since 2009 and for once they won’t go into the season as the countries number one team. The college football world should be on notice for an offensive explosion from this team.
The floor for a healthy season with Jeudy is another 1,000-yard campaign and hearing his name called on night one of the 2020 NFL Draft. However, with the probable Alabama revenge tour, big play potential and copious NFL teams needing a receiver. By this time next year Jeudy could easily be a National Champion and a Top 5 pick in the NFL.
