Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Opportunity wasn’t a problem for Jeudy as a rookie last year. He ranked 21st among WRs with 113 targets and 6th with 1,541 air yards.
  • But Jeudy finished just 46th among WRs in PPR points and 44th in non-PPR.
  • QB play was the primary problem. Denver ranked 26th in passing yards, 25th in passing TDs, 31st in completion rate and 24th in yards per attempt.
  • Pro Football Focus charted just 58.0% of Jeudy’s targets as catchable. That ranked 83rd among 84 WRs with 50+ targets.
  • Jeudy also contributed to the inefficiency, though, with 12 drops and an 18.8% drop rate -- both the 2nd worst marks in the NFL.
  • Jeudy dropped just 8.3% of his catchable targets in his final college season. We’re not overly concerned about his hands.
  • Speaking of his college days, Jeudy was an awesome-looking prospect coming out of Alabama. He posted a 68-1,315-14 line and won the Biletnikoff Award as a sophomore and followed that up with a 77-1,163-10 line as a junior. He was 1 of the best route runners we’ve seen coming out in a while and drew comparisons ranging from Keenan Allen to Stefon Diggs to Odell Beckham. Denver took Jeudy with the 15th overall pick of last year’s draft.
  • The Broncos traded for QB Teddy Bridgewater in April. He’ll compete with QB Drew Lock for the starting job.
  • Bridgewater sports a career 66.5% completion rate and 7.3 yards per attempt average -- much better than Lock’s 59.1% completion rate and 6.6 yards per attempt through 2 seasons.
  • Whether Lock takes a significant step forward in 2021 or Bridgewater beats him out, Jeudy should get better QB play this season than last.
  • Jeudy will face more target competition this year with the return of WR Courtland Sutton, who played just 31 snaps before tearing his ACL last year.
    • Sutton commanded 124 targets -- a 24.6% share -- back in 2019.
  • The Broncos also return WRs K.J. Hamler and Tim Patrick and TE Noah Fant.
  • OC Pat Shurmur returns for his 2nd season with the Broncos in 2021.
    • The 2020 Broncos ranked 19th in pass attempts and 20th in pass rate.
    • Shurmur has tended to be a pass-leaning play caller, with 9 of his previous 11 NFL offenses finishing top 16 in pass attempts.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Jeudy had a frustrating rookie season, struggling with drops and poor QB play. His hands weren’t an issue at Alabama, so we’re not worried about that. And the QB play should be better in 2021 -- whether it’s Drew Lock improving or Teddy Bridgewater taking over.

Volume is a slight concern with Courtland Sutton returning and Noah Fant back. But Jeudy remains a super intriguing, young player capable of a breakout 2021 season.

Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy finished with the 2nd most drops (12) and 2nd worst drop rate (18.8%) last year. It's been a point of emphasis this offseason. “It’s mostly concentration and focus on the ball,” Jeudy said. “I’ll be so quick to catch and run and hurry up and make a play, instead of catch first and then run. That’s mostly what it is, trying to make plays too fast and not focusing on the bigger picture, which is catching the ball first.” Jeudy dropped just 8.3% of his catchable targets in his final season at Alabama, so we’re not overly concerned about his hands. If he can get better QB play this season -- from either Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater -- Jeudy should build on his 52-856-3 rookie-year line.
