The Denver Broncos are currently in the middle of OTAs which only means one thing: the 2021 NFL season is on the horizon. This is a very important time for the Broncos for several reasons. One being that there is a quarterback competition between Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater.

Some of the other reasons being that this roster is young and needs all the reps they can gain throughout OTAs heading into minicamp.

One of those young players is Jerry Jeudy.

Jeudy didn’t have the rookie year he wanted (even though the stats say otherwise), but he is poised to have a breakout year for Denver.

Last year he totaled:

  • 56 receptions
  • 856 yards
  • Averaged 16.5 yards per catch
  • 3 touchdowns (Including the 92 yard TD in week 17)

Jeudy did struggle last year with some missed opportunities. Everyone remembers the week 16 game at Los Angeles when he dropped a few passes from Drew Lock and some others from different games. Fans were starting to question Jeudy’s ability to catch and if he is the future for the Denver Broncos.

At the time and even now, I always believed in Jeudy.

With 856 receiving yards and averaging 16.5 yards per catch, Jeudy can really blow the minds of football fans this upcoming year. Once he fixes the issues that need to be fixed, Jerry can easily have a 1,000 plus receiving yard year for the Denver Broncos. With the addition of Courtland Sutton coming back, it only helps Jeudy within the offense as they will both complement each other really well.

As OTAs continue, there have been multiple reports coming out that Jeudy is performing really well on the field. It seems like at the end of each day, there is always a tweet on how good Jeudy is.

Teammates like Tim Patrick have complemented Jeudy during the presser after practice stating, “Jerry Jeudy is like really good, like really, really good” and saying that he wants to be great “really bad.” Bryce Callahan also said that his routes are looking “crispy.”

Jeudy is known as a terrific route runner and I believe he is already one of the top guys in the league at that. It is not crazy to say that once he solves the issues he had last year, Jeudy will be a once-in-a-generation talent.

Here are some of the reports coming out of OTAs regarding Jerry Jeudy:

Jeudy is determined to have a breakout year and we all expect that from him. Former opponents have called him “the toughest one to cover” and he was a rookie. Big-time players make big-time plays and we can expect a lot of that from Jeudy next year.
