Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy declared for the NFL draft on Saturday.

The 6-foot-1, 192-pound wideout just wrapped up an impressive junior year. He caught 77 passes for 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns, marking his second consecutive season with 1,000-plus yards and double-digit touchdowns.

Most draft observers project that Jeudy could be a first-round pick and one of the top two or three wide receivers to be selected.

“I want to give thanks and praise to the most-high; through God, anything is possible,” Jeudy wrote in a message posted on his Twitter account. “This journey at the University of Alabama has been an amazing experience.

“I want to give thanks to my family, the coaches, my football brothers, all of the staff, and our die-hard fans that have made the time that I spent at the University of Alabama a great one. Being able to play the sport I love alongside some of the greatest people in the game has been a blessing for me. I will forever represent the Crimson Tide.”

Jeudy caught 159 passes for 2,742 yards and 26 touchdowns in three seasons with the Crimson Tide.
