It’s been quite a presesaon for Denver Broncos rookies, especially for first round pick Bradley Roby. As the preseason began, there was a ton of uncertainty about this rookie class, how it would be able to help this Super Bowl caliber roster, if at all.
A lot of those questions have now been answered as the Broncos appear posed to keep even more rookies than they drafted on the active roster, or at least they could and no one would bat an eye.
The fourth preseason game is going to be key for the young players as they make or break their chances at the 53-man roster. These guys have to make an impression to at least be one of the 10 players picked for the practice squad. The Broncos are absolutely loaded up and down the roster with talent, and that’s a good thing. These guys are competing for jobs that have tight windows to fit through right now.
That’s why the fourth preseason game is always so entertaining to me, and why I feel like it’s must-see television. Here’s a report on the Broncos’ rookie as of having week three of the preseason in the books.
