Unless a UDFA like Shaq Barrett is able to lock down a roster spot, I think the Broncos will keep six linebackers and another one or two on the practice squad. You would hope that they’d be able to sneak both Barrett and seventh round pick Corey Nelson on the practice squad with the talent and upside they have.
