Jerry Jeudy was one of the most highly-touted wide receiver in the star-studded 2020 draft class, and while he impressed at times during his rookie year with the Denver Broncos, it also came with a fair share of struggles.

Jeudy struggled with drops big time in his rookie season, putting up a disappointing 46% catch rate. Jeudy had 10 total drops and an 8.8 drop rate, which was the second-worst mark in the NFL last season.

Although, heading into his second season, Jeudy feels more confident than ever in fixing those issues.

"I feel like I've matured. You don't know what you're getting yourself into [during] your first year of doing something. This is my second year and I feel like I have learned a lot from my first year. I know how to overcome whatever I had in past years to make this year better."

While it's expected that any rookie will make improvements in year two, Jeudy's awareness of his issues and maturity in addressing them are what stand out. If his confidence and maturity translate to the field, we could be seeing a Jeudy that looks much more like what we saw at Alabama, and with the right quarterback under center and a healthy Courtland Sutton, that could make the Broncos' passing attack very scary in 2021.
