Jerry Jeudy is pretty much the consensus No. 1 wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft. That's no small feat considering this is widely believed to be the most loaded WR class in quite some time.

With an impressive size-speed combination, elite ball skills and a lethal route running ability, he'll have no shortage of suitors in the NFL Draft. Picking 12th overall, the Las Vegas Raiders (+200) are currently favored to draft Jeudy, according to odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Armed with a pair of first-round picks (No. 12 and No. 19) Las Vegas is certainly well positioned to grab the Alabama product. Of course, they'll face some stiff competition from the New York Jets (+250), who own the No. 11 pick. Unless Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock trade up, they're at risk of losing out on Jeudy.

Rounding out the rest of the top six, the Denver Broncos and Indianapolis Colts are tied at +600, while the Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles are both listed at +1400. Given that Arizona drafted three receivers last year, and just acquired DeAndre Hopkins, it's surprising that Kyler Murray's squad is still so high in the odds.

The Cardinals have clearly prioritized the position since hiring Kliff Kingsbury, though, so it's hard to rule them out from drafting Jeudy at No. 6 overall.

While the Raiders are slightly favored to select the Biletnikoff Award winner, these odds will surely continue to shift as the offseason progresses.
