3. Isaiah Burse Will Step Up

As I wrote previously, it’s time for Burse to step up his game in a big way. The Broncos really need him to do so after the injury to Jordan Norwood last week.

I think Burse is going to step his game up, prove he can be the team’s punt returner, and maybe even sneak into the mix offensively. This is a player with a lot of talent, but he’s raw and he’s a rookie. He has the ability to lock down the 6th WR spot as well as be the punt returner, he’s just got to prove it in a game.
