WR - DEN
Jerry Jeudy, this year's 15th overall pick, has signed his four-year rookie contract with the Broncos worth $15.2M.
Jeudy was the second wide receiver taken in this year's draft and should immediately assume the complimentary role to Courtland Sutton after his breakout 2019 campaign. Drew Lock and Jeudy have already been working out consistently this offseason and Jeudy should be a late-round target for a lot of fantasy owners looking for a high-ceiling wide receiver. The Alabama product is currently 51st in wide receiver ECR.
The Denver Broncos have selected wide receiver Jerry Jeudy with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
In what has to be considered a best-case scenario for the Denver Broncos, Jeudy falls to him at No. 15 overall. With the Raiders taking Henry Ruggs at No. 12, the Broncos are able to get a wideout in Jeudy who gives them an outstanding complement to Courtland Sutton.
On Tuesday afternoon, a report came out from two reporters in Philadelphia that Jerry Jeudy had a knee issue that could cause him to fall in the upcoming NFL Draft. In an appearance on 97.5 The Fanatic on Wednesday morning, NFL insider Adam Schefter confirmed that Jeudy has a "lingering knee issue" but does not see it having a dramatic effect on his stock.
Schefter confirming the knee issue for Jeudy, who had knee surgery in 2018, is not great for his draft stock. But Schefter also seemed unconcerned and indicated that he did not believe Jeudy would fall very far in the draft. Jeudy has been widely considered the top wide receiver prospect in the upcoming NFL Draft for months now and had been expected to be drafted by the middle of the first round at the latest.
Sources have told Woody Paige of the Colorado Springs Gazette that Denver is most interested in Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy and would be willing to trade up to No. 8 or No. 10 from their current draft slot of No. 15 to get him.
The Broncos have been at the center of trade rumors leading up to the Draft, and Paige is now saying they have their eye on Jeudy. Denver picks at number 15 however, and the Alabama product figures to be gone by then, so selecting Jeudy would most likely require them to trade up past the Jets at 11 and the Raiders at 12, who both figure to be in the market for one of the top-3 WR prospects in Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, and Henry Ruggs III. Any one of these three WRs would be great paired with Courtland Sutton in Denver, but it seems Jeudy is the preferred target at this point. Keep an eye on John Elway and the Broncos as we head into Day One of what could shape out to be a very entertaining top of the Draft.
Jerry Jeudy (6'1/193) runs a 4.45 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.
This was a great time for Jerry Jeudy, which solidifies his stock as a top-3 option in Dynasty rookie drafts. Jeudy's ability to create separation with fantastic route-running and release off the line of scrimmage was enough to put him in that top tier. Now, with this recorded speed added on top of it, Jeudy's a likely option to go 1.01.
