Jeremy Kerley scouting report

Jeremy Kerley WR TCU
Ht: 5’10″

Wt: 190

Strengths:
Excellent quickness. Quick off the snap and gets up to full speed quickly. Plays much faster than his timed speed. Experienced on punt returns. A dangerous runner after the catch. Looks very good on short and intermediate routes – could be a great fit as a slot receiver in a west coast offense.
Weaknesses:
Lacks the elite speed teams look for in small receivers; isn’t a serious threat to stretch the field. Does everything well, but doesn’t stand out in any one area.
Comments:
Kerley’s lack of elite straight-line speed hurts his stock because teams prefer their smaller receivers to be able to stretch the field. However, in the right system he could be a dangerous weapon in the slot. He’s willing to go across the middle and is a tough runner after the catch, making him a nice fit in a west coast system. If he lands in the right offense, he could develop into a mid-round steal.
