15 picks in, and so far, it’s hard to imagine the first night of the draft going any better for the Broncos.

All three top receivers and three of the top four tackles fell out of the top nine, guaranteeing that the Broncos would have at least one on the board at 15. Instead, with the 49ers selecting Javon Kinlaw 14th overall, the Broncos got their pick between CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy, reportedly their top two receivers in the entire draft.

Jeudy was most scouts’ top dog, and he must have been so on Denver’s board too, as they selected him at 15 without thinking twice.

The Broncos offense should be set at the skill positions now for the next five years at least, with stud receivers in Jeudy and Courtland Sutton, a freak tight end in Noah Fant, and arguably the best running back tandem in the league with Phillip Lindsay and Melvin Gordon.

Also, unlike some of the other wide receivers in the class, Jeudy is ready to be a No. 1 receiver, let alone a No. 2 guy, from Day 1, which is key considering the coronavirus-shortened offseason.

Jeudy’s quick feet and elite route-running ability also give him a sky-high floor. It’s really hard to picture him being much worse than Amari Cooper, the newly-minted highest-paid receiver in NFL history, as a rookie. If everything goes right, you could be looking at the next Antonio Brown, without the off-field headache.

Not only did John Elway solidify his offensive firepower with Denver’s top receiver in the draft, but he did so without having to trade up, surprisingly. That leaves the Denver with nine picks left across Days 2 and 3 of the draft to facilitate a potential trade-up later on.

If Jeremy Chinn or another top Broncos target begins to fall to Round 2, or even the bottom of Round 1, John Elway still has the ammunition available to ensure the Broncos come away with one of their guys.

While Jeudy has the size and skill level to play outside with Sutton, his best fit in Denver’s offense would probably be as a slot receiver, with big bodies Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick working the perimeter.

Jeudy’s shiftiness and short-range agility make him perfect for the slot, where he can function as one of the best quick-pass options in the league. His 6’1″, 193 pound frame would also fair better inside than on an island outside.

With not much behind Jeudy and Sutton, the Broncos could still target a receiver in Round 2 or 3, but it seems more likely they’d focus their efforts on the defensive side of the ball now.

If Denver does choose to target a receiver, one name that could be interesting to watch is Baylor’s Denzel Mims. He would be the perfect pairing to Sutton and Jeudy in this year’s draft. He can play on the outside, allowing Jeudy to thrive in the slot, and he can add the speed to Denver’s offense they missed out on when Las Vegas selected Henry Ruggs 12th overall.
