Evaluating the Denver Broncos: Defensive Backs
Sometimes, being on the “No Fly Zone” can be a bit difficult because of the inability to get some playing time on the field. This is exactly the situation of Kayvon Webster. But he did find a niche on special teams.
During the playoff run, Webster was a beast when it came to downing the football against the Steelers on punts. His special teams play will do enough to keep him on the roster.
He could also see some playing time. And when he does get on the field, Webster is solid in pass coverage. He could be a dark horse candidate to have a productive year for the Denver Broncos.
Doss did not see a whole lot of playing time in 2015 after being drafted in the fifth round by the Denver Broncos. I believe that he will most likely be playing a role on special teams. But this player does have a lot of upside as he recorded 15 interceptions in his three year career at Tulane.
The Denver Broncos drafted Nixon with their seventh round pick in the 2015 draft. Nixon spent all but two games of the entire season on the practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster when Omar Bolden was placed on injured reserve.
This could be another season where Nixon is on the practice squad unless he really impresses on special teams and defense this year.
Other corner backs B.J Lowery and John Tidwell are most likely training camp bodies. I do not see either one of them making the final roster due to the depth of the corner back position.
