Denver Broncos rookie receiver Jerry Jeudy has some of the best feet in the NFL already.
Jerry Jeudy is going to prove a major steal for the Denver Broncos.
Drafted 15th-overall in April’s NFL Draft, Jeudy has long profiled for stardom in the pros. Looking at his latest workout video, it’s clear route-running and footwork won’t be a problem.
Jerry Jeudy is set up for stardom with the Broncos
Anybody who watched Jeudy star for the Alabama Crimson Tide over the past three seasons isn’t surprised by this wildness. The 21-year-old was a two-time First-Team All-SEC largely because he gained great separation at the line of scrimmage with elite feet and quickness. In 2018, Jeudy won the Biletnikoff Award, given the best collegiate receiver in the game.
At Alabama, Jeudy racked up 2,478 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns over the past two seasons. Now headed to Denver, he’ll team up with Courtland Sutton on the outside to form one of the best duos in the league. Factor in second-year quarterback Drew Lock, the tandem of Phillip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon in the backfield and Noah Fant at tight end, and the Broncos are cooking.
The Florida native was the second receiver taken in what many believe is one of the best drafts in history for the position. Oddly enough, it was teammate Henry Ruggs III who was taken before him, landing with the AFC West-rival Las Vegas Raiders.
While every rookie has a learning curve, Jeudy’s ability to use his feet to move cornerbacks should be help his time between adjusting and producing at the next level.
