Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy was the top-ranked player on the team's draft board, according to general manager John Elway. 'We met with him in Indianapolis (at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine) and really liked him and liked his mentality. ... Jerry was our guy from the get-go,' Elway said.
Huddle Up: The Dallas Cowboys' CeeDee Lamb was reportedly second on the Broncos' board. There was plenty of debate prior to the draft as to whether Jeudy, Lamb or Henry Ruggs was the best receiver in the draft, but it's not hard to see why Elway took the one he did. Few in college football created separation as easily as Jeudy, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he overtakes Courtland Sutton as Drew Lock's favorite target in 2020. He should be a solid WR3 as a rookie and is a fantastic first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Denver Broncos rookie WR Jerry Jeudy is expected to immediately step into a starting role with Denver. Jeudy isn't lacking confidence as he takes the step from the college ranks to the NFL. 'I feel like I'm the best wide receiver because I've got the ability to separate. You need to find a way to get open and I feel like that's what I can do. I feel like if I'm getting open and creating 5, 6 yards of separation every time, that means more yards and yards after the catch,' Jeudy said. He believes he is one of the top route-runners in this year's class of rookie wideouts. Jeudy added that he can play inside, outside or whereever the team puts him to make a play on the ball. 'I don't feel like I'm a better inside receiver than an outside receiver. I'm a receiver overall. I know how to get open -- against press, against off, against whoever guards me. I know how to get open. That's it,' Jeudy added.
Huddle Up: The Broncos rook has a ton of upside, but the current limits to working with his teammates could slow him out of the gate. He'll also be relying on second-year QB Drew Lock to take the next step in his development. Consider Jeudy a low-end WR3 with plenty of upside as the season plays out. He, of course, has higher value in dynasty formats.

Denver Broncos rookie WR Jerry Jeudy is an all-or-nothing kind of guy, according to his high school football coach, Jevon Glenn. 'He's a guy, once he's passionate about something, he's passionate. He doesn't know how to give you a half-effort. He'd rather give you zero than give 50 percent,' Glenn said. Maryland coach Mike Locksley, who tried to recruit Jeudy to Alabama when Locksley was the co-offensive coordinator and receivers coach, believes Jeudy will be a 'better pro than he was a college guy' because after 5 yards the defenders can't get a hand on Jeudy, allowing him to make a difference running free in the secondary.
