The Denver Broncos landed Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy in the first round, but how did their 2020 NFL Draft grade shake out?

WR Alabama

The Broncos needed to find a compliment to Courtland Sutton after trading Emmanuel Sanders a year ago. General manager John Elway came up big, landing former Alabama Crimson Tide star Jerry Jeudy at 15th-overall.

In one of the best receiver classes we’ve seen in decades, the Broncos took Jeudy as the second off the board. While he’s not the elite burner former teammate — and now Las Vegas Raiders rookie — Henry Ruggs is, Jeudy is the more polished player. He’s a phenomenal route-runner who has shown elusiveness in the open field.

With the Crimson Tide, Jeudy notched 1,315 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2018, averaging almost 20 yards per reception. Last year, the youngster went for 1,163 yards and 10 scores, despite playing on a loaded Alabama team.
