Arizona Cardinals: 3 wide receivers they should target in first round
If one receiver from the University of Alabama is good, how about two? Jerry Jeudy is another from the Crimson Tide who would be a great selection for the Arizona Cardinals. He started all 13 games for Alabama, leading the Tide with 77 receptions, and 10 touchdowns.
Like his teammate, Henry Ruggs III, he has tremendous speed. Of note, is that he’s a disciplined route runner. From the slot position, he has the uncanny ability to both lengthen and widen the field. He’ll make defenders pay extra attention to him, and like Ruggs III, would be a welcomed target for Murray.
Most simply stated, both Alabama wide receivers are absolute game changers and options for the Cardinals. Both present matchup problems for defenders and both are reasonable considerations as the heir apparent for the HOF’er in waiting, Larry Fitzgerald.
Jeudy would be a significant addition in Arizona. In a division where offenses can be potent, he’s a rookie who would not resemble a rookie eight games into 2020. With Murray, he’s a player you can continue to build around, even in the shadow of Hopkins. He’s a cornerstone addition who absolutely moves the needle and makes the Cardinals better immediately.
Drafting Jeudy changes everything as far as perception goes in Arizona.
