Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy is headed to the Denver Broncos after being selected 15th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Jeudy was the second Alabama wideout taken in the first round, after Henry Ruggs went to the Las Vegas Raiders three picks earlier.

Jeudy was one of college football’s best offensive players over the past two seasons, winning the Biletnikoff Award in 2018 and being named to the All-SEC First Team in 2019.

In the 2019 season, Jeudy had 77 receptions for 1,163 yards and 10 touchdowns, all of which led Alabama.

The Broncos are developing an exciting young offensive core, with former First Team All-SEC players Juedy and Drew Lock, in addition to Phillip Lindsey and Courtland Sutton.
