Denver Broncos rookie running back Devontae Booker doesn’t want to come in and carry pads as a rookie — he wants to take someone’s job…
Denver Broncos rookie running back Devontae Booker said what?
How can you not love this guy?
After falling to the end of the fourth round in the 2016 draft, the Broncos cashed in on the fall of one of the best running backs in this year’s class. Devontae Booker was an exceptional talent coming out of Utah, and could have easily been a second or third round pick. Most people had him as their second or third ranked back in this class, so the Broncos got a steal here.
Booker, along with first round pick Paxton Lynch, is participating this weekend in the NFLPA rookie premiere, where they will don the orange and blue uniforms for the first time and pose for pictures for various trading cards and other mediums.
Booker has huge potential in this Broncos’ offense, and the kind of confidence he has is going to win him the opportunity at snaps early on in his NFL career. Broncos fans won’t be disappointed in that. If he has aspirations of being one of the best to ever come out of Denver, he’d better get started early.
It’s going to be really exciting to see pictures from this weekend’s festivities at the NFLPA rookie premiere, and it will be really interesting to see how the Broncos’ veterans respond to Booker’s quote.
I’m guessing he’ll wind up carrying some pads after all…
