And you’d be mostly right because he was pretty stoked.
And Broncos’ wide receivers coach Zach Azzanni was obviously thrilled with the choice.
But hands-down, the guy most excited about the Broncos picking Jeudy was Denver’s own Von Miller.
Sheltering at home with a face mask and all, Miller was not going to let a little coronavirus keep him from showing a lot of enthusiasm.
A few other teammates took to Twitter to show their support too:
Olympic skier and avid Broncos fan Lindsey Vonn even got in on the excitement.
Even Elway was basking in the glow of getting the top wideout - the one Woody Paige told us last week that he wanted - without even having to trade up to do it.
Elway probably just got off the phone with Pat Shurmur, his new offensive coordinator, who has a bit of a history helping really good route runners.
Jeudy could become a star in the @Broncos offensive system. Pat Shurmur loves route runners (see MN w/Diggs & Thielen) so it’s not surprising to see JJ go here. Versatile WR w/a plug and play game that should enable him to become their WR1 in time #NFLDraft— Bucky Brooks (@BuckyBrooks) April 24, 2020
This is the Bradley Chubb type of slide that may wind up fixing the #Broncos passing offense.— Joe Rowles (@JoRo_NFL) April 24, 2020
Jerry Jeudy is the best separator I remember studying. His ability to play Z or slot is super valuable. I love this pick. Love it. pic.twitter.com/ySmbNh0rHx
No doubt part of the excitement on the offense is the potential oozing through this young and talented squad.
#Broncos projected offense:— NFL Update (@MySportsUpdate) April 24, 2020
QB: Drew Lock (age: 23)
RB: Melvin Gordon (age: 27)
RB: Phillip Lindsay (age: 25)
WR: Courtland Sutton (age: 24)
WR: Jerry Jeudy (age: 21)
TE: Noah Fant (age: 22)
One thing you know for sure, when Hall-of-Famer Steve Atwater is giving virtual high fives, it’s a great pick.
Broncos Country in general was thrilled with the pick.
And if they weren’t before the draft, they likely are now that Jeudy’s “TikTok” with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has likely gone viral.
