Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy spending his offseason with superstar NFL receiver

Reinhold Matay - USA TODAY Sports

He is serious about being a top-five pick in next year’s NFL Draft and with the way he’s been training this offseason, Jerry Jeudy is looking at being the No. 1 overall pick. 

After a sophomore campaign that saw him emerge with the Fred Biletnikoff Award and consensus All-American status, the former five-star is learning tools from one of the best receivers in the pros.

Jeudy was with Antonio Brown of the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, as the two Florida natives along with others got some work in on the track.  

Brown was selected in the sixth round of the 2010 draft; however, he became a seven-time Pro Bowler, four-time selection for first-team All-Pro, two-time leader in receptions and receiving yards for the league and the NFL’s leader in touchdown receptions in 2018. He was a star for the Pittsburgh Steelers in seven of nine seasons — since coming out of Central Michigan – including a monster year in 2015 with him posting career highs in catches (136) and receiving yards (1,834).

Jeudy already had a relationship with Tua Tagovailoa before both arrived at Alabama in 2017; nevertheless, the duo was unstoppable last season.

The man known for his juke moves led the Crimson Tide in receptions (68), yards (1,315) and scores (14) as he helped the team win its sixth Southeastern Conference Championship of the Nick Saban era.

Per a few Way-Too-Early draft boards, Jeudy projects as a top-five guy but Mel Kiper Jr. has him at No. 1 for 2020.
