4. Vance Walker, DL
Walker has been a pleasant surprise as a free agent acquisition from Kansas City, and starts off the season as one of the Broncos’ best run defenders. He’s the 5th best 3-4 DE against the run per Pro Football Focus metrics, but he’s also tacked on 4 QB hurries.
Coming in as a starter to replace the suspended Derek Wolfe, Walker has been an excellent pickup so far for Denver. Hopefully he can keep it going throughout the whole season.
