The first round of the 2020 NFL Draft has already had three former Crimson Tide players selected. Jerry Jeudy makes it four as the Denver Broncos make him the 15th overall player drafted.

In the Mile-High City, Jeudy will have a chance to grow with second-year signal caller Drew Lock. The Broncs were a disappointing 7-9 a season ago and a big reason was inconsistency at the receiving corps. Denver’s second leading receiver was rookie tight end Noah Fant . The third was WR Emmanuel Sanders with a pathetic 367 yards and two touchdowns.

Jeudy brings instant offense to a team that has been on life support.
