When the Denver Broncos selected former-Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, they were hoping he’d pair well with Courtland Sutton and provide Drew Lock with ample weapons to work with.
Instead, four games into the season there is no Sutton and no Lock. It was Brett Rypien who aired it out in what looked like with everything he had and at the five yard line Jeudy wrestled away the ball from the New York Jets defense to haul in his first touchdown of his NFL career.

The 48-yard touchdown reception put the Broncos up 10-7 early in the second quarter on Thursday Night Football. The Broncos will need more of that from Jeudy throughout all of 2020 as Sutton is done for the year. If he can come up quick as a rookie, then Denver will at least have some offensive options despite all of the injuries.
