With a developing young quarterback in Sam Darnold, the New York Jets would be wise to get him all the help they can. The team hasn't exactly had a great track record in that department, though. Last season, no Jets' WR broke 833 receiving yards and the year prior only one New York wideout had more than 450 receiving yards.

The Jets have an opportunity to completely revamp that skill-position group in 2020, though. The 2020 NFL Draft class boasts one of the most loaded WR groups in recent memory, and yet, Jerry Jeudy still stands above the rest. If he's on the board at No. 11, the Jets need to draft Jeudy.

Jerry Jeudy Jets NFL Draft

Jeudy had a bit of a down season in 2019, at least by his lofty standards, but he still racked up 77 receptions for 1,163 yards and 10 TDs in 13 games. He also did that despite Tua Tagovailoa only playing in nine games.

The year prior, though, Jeudy won the 2018 Biletnikoff Award as a sophomore after tallying 1,315 receiving yards and 14 TDs.

He'd almost certainly going to come into New York and serve as the team's WR1, and he'd be an excellent replacement for Robby Anderson, who signed with the Carolina Panthers this offseason.

Jeudy has the most potential of any WR Darnold will have played with thus far. If he's still available when the Jets are on the clock, he'd be an excellent addition to the team.
