Former Duke University wide receiver Max McCaffrey has a pre-draft workout scheduled with the Broncos. Max is the oldest son of former Broncos wide out Ed McCaffrey. Could another member of the McCaffrey family join the Broncos? Plus we talk other news surrounding the Broncos.
The NFL Draft is just around the corner. And the Denver Broncos have some key pieces to fill if they are going to defend their Super Bowl title during the season. One prospect out there has ties to a former Broncos wide out.
Duke University wide out Max McCaffrey will have a pre-draft workout scheduled with the Broncos. If the name sounds familiar, the wide out is the son of former Broncos wide receiver Ed McCaffrey.
Ed played in Denver for nine seasons, which included two Super Bowl victories. He also won a third ring during his one year stint with the San Francisco 49ers. He accumulated 6,200 of his 7,422 yards receiving with the Broncos.
Max McCaffrey impressed scouts at the Duke University pro day by recording a 4.4 40 yard dash. It would have been ranked third among receivers and tenth overall if it was measured at the combine.
I would like to see the Broncos pursue him. Not because of the name, but he could be an interesting prospect. Not to mention he could be a solid receiver for the Broncos in the foreseeable future. Perhaps he can team up with Jordan Taylor.
Broncos Announce Start of OTA’s
Well, I hope the Broncos got some well deserved vacation time in. Because it is time to get back to work. The Broncos begin their off season workouts on April 18th. Two names to keep an eye on when the workouts begin are Brandon Marshall and Von Miller.
Marshall has told teammates that he may skip the program all together. If he shows, it will be a good sign. If he does not, I do not think there will be any concerns for the time being.
Miller could very well be into the Dancing with the Stars season. But he never said that he was going to miss it, so I look for him to be present when the program starts as he and the Broncos will look to get a deal done before the July deadline.
The off season program will end June 16th. Two months worth of getting back into the swing of things before the title defense begins.
Chris Harris Jr. Fires Back at Tomlinson
Former San Diego Charger and New York Jet running back LaDainian Tomlinson discussed with other NFL Network Analysis about shutdown corners and Tomlinson went on to say that there are no shutdown corners.
Chris Harris Jr., a cornerback who up until the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 15 matchup last season did not allow a touchdown in two years, took to Twitter to voice his lack-of concerns on what the former running back said.
Good for him. It sounds like Harris Jr. is not worried at all what the analysis think and is out there to play the game to the best of his abilities. I mean, it did earn him a championship.
Von Miller Fined by Witney Carson
If you have not watched the new season of Dancing with the Stars, you have been missing out. Von’s dance partner Witney Carson has been fining the Super Bowl MVP for every time he passes gas or he is late to practice.
We all remember last season when it was rumored that Miller was passing gas and being fined by the coaching staff. Now it appears as if Carson has taken to that approach and following through with it.
The fine money is going to a good cause. The champion of Season 19’s show donates all of the money towards skin cancer research.
The dancing is a lot of fun to watch. But seeing Carson and Miller bonding and practicing is quite fun to see. The fines definitely bring some comedy to the show.
Tune in next week as we recap some more Broncos news in the Horse Droppings for Predominantly Orange.
