2020 NFL Draft Prospect: Jequez Ezzard, WR, Howard University
Howard is led by senior wide receiver Jequez Ezzard, a 2018 First Team All-MEAC selection. Ezzard has been a huge impact player helping with the quick development of Caylin Newton at quarterback.
Ezzard is a speedster who maybe a little small at 5’9, but this kid will make you miss and is not afraid of contact. The Hapeville Charter High School grad from College Park, Georgia has had a pretty amazing career.
In his true freshman year he played in four games, recorded 2 receptions for 27 yards and added help on special teams adding 13 kick returns for 272 yards.
In 2017, Ezzard was named to the All-Conference first team after dominating the MEAC all 11 games he played in. He racked up 895 yards on 34 receptions with six touchdowns. He finished with six 100 yard games finishing third in the country with 26.3 yards per reception.
Last year, Jequez won almost every award known to man. He finished on the Walter Payton Offensive Player of the Year Award Watch List, and finished with 40 receptions and 12 touchdowns. He racked up 1,064 yards receiving. He finished with five 100 yard games and a pair of 200 yard games. This kid is a stud, and he is ready to help the Bison win the MEAC. They will have a great chance this year, especially if they feed number 12.
