Jerrel Jernigan scouting report

Jerrel Jernigan WR Troy
Ht: 5’9″

Wt: 185

Tremendously productive player against his level of competition. Has the speed to stretch the field. Gets up to full speed quickly. Shows the ability to pick up yardage after the catch. Impressive elusiveness in the open field. Experienced on special teams.
Undersized. Not asked to run a wide range of routes in college. Route running is a little sloppy; he got by in college thanks to his speed and didn’t need polished routes to get open. Lacks the strength to offer much as a blocker. Suffered an ankle injury in final collegiate game (forced him to miss Senior Bowl). Some questions about his intelligence and ability to digest an NFL playbook; struggled academically in high school and college.
Jernigan isn’t a prototypical No. 1 receiver but he does have the skills necessary to be a dangerous deep threat. He’s a bit of a work in progress, as he needs to improve his route running, but he does have the potential to develop into a quality second or third option.
