Let’s have some fun in this 2020 NFL mock draft. Wide receiver may not be the 49ers’ biggest need, but it is certainly a position that they could address. The way that the board falls here works out well for San Francisco, as they are able to simply sit back and snag Jerry Jeudy at No. 13. Jeudy is arguably the best receiver in a loaded 2020 NFL Draft class at the position and would immediately become an incredible playmaker for the team.
Jeudy is an elite-level route runner who can create consistent space no matter the situation. He uses quick change of direction ability to create separation against man coverage and has a knack for finding space against zone. Jeudy is an extremely elusive player who can shake defenders with ease. He is a tremendous weapon at all three levels and an impressive playmaker with the ball in his hands.
Make no mistake about it, Jerry Jeudy is an incredible wide receiver who has massive upside at the next level. He would bring immediate playmaking ability to the San Francisco 49ers offense, showing the ability to make plays as a deep receiver and create after the catch. Pairing Jeudy with Deebo Samuel would give the 49ers a dynamic duo at the wide receiver position who they could build their entire offense around.
