Overview:

Jeremy Kerley was a play maker for TCU and he hurt college defenses in multiple ways. However, I can’t see him doing the same in the NFL. He lacks straight line speed and he does most of his damage from his shiftiness. I can’t see him being able to do the same type of things in the NFL. He actually reminds me a lot of Harry Douglas. Both are small, quick slot receivers but lack the speed and route running prowess to separate consistently at the next level.

Scouting Report:

– Can make people miss with the ball in his hands
– Has a good burst

– Has a lot of experience returning kicks and punts
– Versatile

Negatives

– Production was average
– Hands are inconsistent
– Body catches a lot of passes and will have some drops
– Concentration is also an issue, wants to run before he secures the catch
– Lacks great top end speed
– Routes are rounded off but gets by because of his athleticism
– Could have some issues separating in the NFL
– More comfortable on short routes than deep routes
