15. Denver Broncos – Original Pick: Jerry Jeudy
Jerry Jeudy was viewed as the #1 WR by multiple teams coming into the draft. In his final season at Alabama, Jeudy hauled in 77 passes for a total of 1163 yards and 10 TDs over the span of 13 games.
Jeudy didn’t have a terrible rookie season but the Broncos really struggled to move the ball all season, especially when Drew Lock was out. Hopefully Denver can find Jeudy a new quarterback so he can truly reach his potential.
New Pick: Chase Claypool
Claypool was one of the sleeper prospects coming into the draft. Teams were really intrigued with his size and some even questioned whether he was more of a tight end than a receiver. What some teams and scouts didn’t realize was how skilled he is.
In Claypool’s excellent rookie campaign, he caught 62 passes for 873 yards and 9 touchdowns. He emerged as the #1 WR on the outside for Pittsburgh but his production tailed off towards the end of the year as Ben Roethlisberger’s play regressed. That being said, Claypool showed everyone that he was clearly deserving of being selected in round 1.
