Make the Case: WR Jerry Jeudy vs. OT Jedrick Wills

"Make the Case" is back in session on Giants.com.

In this series, we look at projections provided by two draft experts and then ask you, the fans, to weigh in on what the Giants should do with the fourth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Austin Gayle of Pro Football Focus projected Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy, saying he is "a better prospect than every offensive tackle in this class. Rookies, especially rookie offensive linemen, don't fill pressing needs. Over the past five NFL seasons, only nine rookie offensive tackles have played 400-plus snaps and earned overall grades above 70.0. None have earned an overall grade above 82.0. Don't address pressing needs in the draft; just draft the best players available."

Jeudy recorded 26 career touchdown receptions to rank second all-time in Alabama history, behind only Amari Cooper's 31. Jeudy also ranks fourth on the Crimson Tide's career receiving yards list with 2,742 yards on 159 catches (fifth all-time). He averaged 17.2 yards per catch for his career, a number that is second in Alabama records behind only Ozzie Newsome's 20.3.

Joe Marino of The Draft Network picked Alabama OT Jedrick Wills: "As [Daniel Jones] enters his sophomore season, fortifying the offensive line in front of him should be a priority for general manager Dave Gettleman and Jedrick Wills' is a prospect I can see him falling in love with. Wills is an exceptional pass blocker with the power needed to generate vertical push in the run game. He can help Jones and star running back Saquon Barkley perform at their best."

Wills was the Crimson Tide's starting right tackle who finished with 29 starts, including 28 straight to end his career. He allowed only one sack all last season and only 3.5 quarterback hurries while missing only seven assignments in 771 snaps for a success rate of 99.0 percent, according to Alabama's official media guide.

He helped anchor the Tide's offensive line that ranked third nationally, allowing just .92 sacks per game. The offensive front opened holes and provided time for Alabama's offense that ranked second nationally in scoring, third in passing and sixth in total offense in 2019.
