Jacksonville Jaguars trade target no. 3: Jerry Jeudy, WR
Of all the players on this list, it would undoubtedly require the Jaguars to give the most to get Jerry Jeudy.
In the 2020 NFL Draft, Doug Pederson and the Philadelphia Eagles used a first-round pick on Jalen Reagor.
Although it’s possible that Reagor was truly their top target at receiver all along, it’s also possible that they — along with many other teams — simply loved the entire wide receiver crop in 2020 and were willing to take pretty much whoever was on the board with their pick.
If that’s the case, the Eagles might have loved Jerry Jeudy in the 2020 NFL Draft process.
Jeudy is a Florida native who hasn’t exactly fallen out of favor in Denver — GM George Paton was just saying nice things about him at the Scouting Combine — but he’s a player that, for the right price, might be able to be had in a trade.
The Jaguars should be active in free agency on the wide receiver market and they should be looking into trades like this if the Broncos are listening.
It would probably take the equivalent of first-round value to get Jeudy and his three years of team control out of Denver, and that’s not out of the question for the Jaguars.
Even if Jacksonville goes after some receivers in free agency, a player like Jerry Jeudy could be a building block for them and a consistent threat out of the slot for Trevor Lawrence.
The Broncos signed Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick to contract extensions last year, and although Jeudy is a building block for them, they might be willing to trade him for more Draft ammunition and take their chances on other receivers.
