Jerry Jeudy vs. CeeDee Lamb: Who's the real WR1?

The debate for WR1 in the 2020 NFL Draft class will rage on all the way until the big day arrives. Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb and Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy have been inseparable on the PFF draft board since around midseason. I myself can’t help going back and forth on the two depending on which one I’ve seen most recently. That’s why, once and for all, I’m putting the WR1 debate to rest. Let’s go trait by trait to determine the top wideout on the PFF draft board.


They are quite easily one and two in this regard for the entire draft class. Both Jeudy and Lamb glide across the field with an ease you can’t coach. Both can run a full route tree while also creating gobs of space on very simple routes, too.

You don’t put up the gaudy numbers both have over the past two seasons without some serious route-running chops. The decider here comes on more advanced routes, where Jeudy’s Gumby-esque flexibility comes into play. The man already runs complex routes at an elite NFL level.
