Jerrel Jernigan is a very explosive play maker who is dangerous with the ball in his hands. He projects well to a slot receiver in the NFL due to his quickness. He has good hands and can cleanly catch the ball away from his body which is a good sign for a small guy like him. He’ll get bullied by bigger CB’s and he’s only at his best within the first 10-15 yards of the LOS but he has the ability to turn a simple screen pass into a 30 yard gain.
