Jerry Jeudy complements Courtland Sutton

When the Broncos traded Emmanuel Sanders to the San Francisco 49ers, along with him went most of the production on the offensive side of the football. Other than Courtland Sutton, the Broncos did not get a lot of production out of their wide receivers. DaeSean Hamilton did not start emerging until late, Tim Patrick did not get a lot of looks his way.

It truly was a mess. Even before the season ended, there was no doubt that Denver would have to find another wideout to replace Emmanuel Sanders’ production. Perhaps that is what Jeudy can do for the team.

During his final two years at Alabama, he was able to record 145 receptions for 2,478 yards and 24 touchdowns. Those are quite some numbers. And that should help out Courtland Sutton.

It will be fun to see him duplicate those numbers in the Denver Broncos offense. Look out opposing defenses, now the Broncos have two wideouts that can cause some serious damage.
