Jermey Kerley 2011 NFL Draft Prospect Notes

The 2011 NFL Draft is right around the corner and the staff at Mocking the Draft is working hard to bring you the most in depth information possible.  We have spent countless hours reviewing college games in an attempt to produce scouting reports for each of the prospects. However, time is running out so we decided to release some scouting notes in order to cover a wider range of prospects.

After the jump you can check out the notes taken in order to come up with this final analysis.  Be sure to check out our full scouting reports HERE.  Also give us some feedback on whether or not these notes provide useful information.

Final Word: Kerley is a player that brings playmaking ability to many different areas of the game.  He has had success as both a punt and kick returner.  His speed and lateral quickness make him very dangerous in space with the ability to eat up a ton of yardage.  He needs to work on his route running and developing a feel for the defense.  However,  Kerley will go later than a player like Randall Cobb but could end up with a similar career.
