2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Jeremy Kerley, WR, TCU

He can pass, he can run, he can catch, but perhaps most importantly Jeremy Kerley can return kicks. The former high school quarterback has done a little bit of everything during his collegiate career at TCU. From day one Kerley was an explosive athlete and everybody at TCU knew it. As a result Kerley was the only true freshman to see any playing time on offense during the 2007 campaign. The 5-10 speedster did not make a huge impact that season, catching nine passes for 97 yards. However, he did throw a couple passes and get a few carries as well. As a sophomore Kerley caught a couple more passes, but it was in the punt return game where he started to really shine.

The following season Kerley was all over the field. He caught a team high 44 passes for 532 yards and two touchdowns. He ran 14 times for 50 yards and three more scores. He completed his only pass on the year for 44 yards and he took over kickoff and punt return duties. In the return game Kerley added two more trips to the end zone on punt returns. During his senior season Kerley was once again quarterback Andy Dalton's go-to-receiver. This time he caught ten touchdown passes, rushed for two more and even threw for a score.

Kerley has been the conference's first-team return specialist for two consecutive years and was also a second-team honoree as a wide receiver during his senior season. Kerley does not have blazing sub 4.0 speed, but he is extremely quick, runs great routes and has sure hands. His versatility is a plus, but Kerley deserves to be drafted in the fifth or sixth round on his return abilities alone. NFL scouts may boost him up their boards even further with a good showing at the Senior Bowl.
