What we like
This receiver group is the most exciting unit on the team. The top line — featuring Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs II and DeVonta Smith — is one of the top trios in the entire country. Jeudy returns after winning the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top receiver last season. Despite Alabama spreading the ball around, Jeudy still caught 68 passes for 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns. Barring anything unforeseen, Jeudy will be the top receiver taken in the 2020 NFL Draft.
