If you had told Denver Broncos general manager John Elway that he would be able to select stud Alabama wideout Jerry Jeudy with the 15th overall pick in the NFL Draft, he would've called you crazy. But that's what happened, thanks in part to an early run on quarterbacks and offensive tackles in the first round. Unlike years past, rookies were unable to participate in OTA's due to the coronavirus pandemic. Even without minicamp, Jeudy is still getting his work in with a variety of drills, which he posted on his official Twitter account on Thursday.
This is the exact route-running abilities that had NFL scouts were gushing about ever since the pre-draft process began.
Prior to these individual drills, Jeudy was spotted working out this past week with Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, who organized practices at local Denver parks once the COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. If not for these unofficial workouts, Jeudy wouldn't have caught passes from the second-year signal caller until the start of training camp.
Jeudy has the opportunity to build a tremendous rapport with Lock in his very first season. If this video shows anything, it's that defensive backs are going to have a hell of a time trying to stop the rookie receiver in 2020.
