The connection between Drew Lock and Jerry Jeudy is starting to look really good.

On Thursday of last week, the second-year quarterback found the talented rookie at wide receiver on a fade route for a touchdown in training camp.

Jeudy, who was taken at No. 15 overall by the Denver Broncos in April, beat a veteran cornerback in Bryce Callahan — who is going into his sixth NFL season.

Former Alabama cornerback and current Bronco, Kareem Jackson has already mentioned Jeudy’s rare ability to put route concepts together.

He was a stud through three years (2017-19) with the Crimson Tide, including a pair of 1,000-yard seasons in 2018 and 2019.

A native of Deerfield Beach, Fla., the former five-star prospect was on a College Football Playoff National Championship team in 2017 and a Southeastern Conference title roster in 2018.

He joined Amari Cooper (2014) as the second receiver in school history to win the Fred Biletnikoff Award.

It is going to be really fun watching Jeudy in the pros.
