Dalton Del Don and Pat Fitzmaurice talk about why you should consider grabbing the Denver WR early in drafts.
DALTON DEL DON: Wide receiver that Pat loves?
PAT FITZMAURICE: So, I talked about Rondale Moore. I'll skip him and, you know, be your Greek chorus, Dalton, and say Jerry Jeudy. And I'm just kind of a little hurt that I actually have him ranked lower than you, which, you know, I didn't think it was possible for me to be below anybody on Jeudy, but, yeah, I just love the guy. I mean, the fact that he led all receivers last year in uncatchable targets, you know, and as we talked about, either Drew Lock was going to get better, or they were going to put Teddy in to sort of guarantee improvement out of the quarterback position there.
You know, Courtland Sutton may be slow to recover from this knee injury. Training camp watchers have said that he is not going up and getting those contested, airborne balls the way he used to. I think Jeudy's going to be the clear number one. We know he is an exceptional route runner. We know he's just amazing after the catch. Really, the only phase that he was not great in last year was the actual squeezing of the football and catching it, but, you know, we saw Davante Adams have drop problems too, and he turned out pretty well, so I'm not really worried about that. I'm really excited about the rest of his game, and I've just been bitterly disappointed if I don't draft him in every league.
DALTON DEL DON: Yeah, Noah Fant's banged up right now too. Yeah, Terrell Owens used to perennially lead the league in dropped passes, and it's not even necessarily a stat that's that sticky. Man, what a route-- already one of the best route runners in the league. Yeah, year two is when receivers blow up, so, Yeah, I'm all in--
