Broncos select Jerry Jeudy with No. 15 pick of 2020 NFL Draft

The Denver Broncos selected Jerry Jeudy, the former Alabama wide receiver, with the No. 15 pick of the 2020 NFL Draft on Thursday night.

Jeudy spent three years at Alabama and was regarded as one of the best wide receiver prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft. As a freshman in 2017, Jeudy was a part of the Crimson Tide team that won a National Championship over Georgia.

He only had one reception for 20 yards in that game. It was only a sign of things to come for Jeudy and his final two seasons at Alabama.

As a sophomore, Jeudy was a key piece of Alabama’s young wide receiver core. He was the recipient of the Biletnikoff Award, which is awarded to the nation’s top wide receiver. Jeudy was also a consensus first-team All-American. He had 68 receptions for 1,315 and 14 touchdowns.
