Denver Broncos: Most important questions on offense team must answer before season kicks off
What will the team get out of Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy?
The Broncos have a chance to have one of the league’s best combinations at wide receiver with Sutton and Jeudy, but both face questions heading into the season. You could lump K.J. Hamler in here as well.
Starting with Sutton, it’s clear that he possesses the physical traits to become one of the league’s best wide receivers. But he is coming off a serious torn ACL that forced him to miss basically all of the 2020 season. How will he rebound entering the fourth season of his career?
Jeudy had an up-and-down rookie season where he failed to catch a ton of the targets he received and he displayed a major problem with dropping passes. Plenty of excuses are made for Jeudy. He was a rookie. He didn’t have a training camp due to the pandemic. He never had a chance to build chemistry with Lock.
That’s all well and good, but the bottom line is he needs to be much better in 2021. No excuses.
Jeudy was selected in the first round of 2020 and he has been lauded for his route-running ability. Having a full camp under his belt, chemistry built with Lock and the fact that Sutton is on the field to take attention away from him should all make him a better player in year two.
So his stat line of 52 catches for 856 yards and three touchdowns last year should all be close to doubled in 2021. No, seriously.
