Jordan Norwood had the flare of the electric in the Super Bowl; however, the Broncos will need more consistent big plays from their special teams. Kalif Raymond could add quickness in the return game the team has not had since 2012. Raymond is not Trindon Holliday by any means, but the Holy Cross product has tremendous quickness who could see his time on the roster in special teams or in some offensive sets.

Raymond, who wears number 19, could have the impact Eddie Royal once had. Royal was a draft of the Broncos, but would give them some punch in the special teams department. One area in camp that has impressed is Raymond’s soft hands. Raymond on quick out routes has even the awareness to know where he is on the field to get both feet down.

It is areas like this that can impress the coaches and Raymond has a chance to be another undrafted wonder for the Denver Broncos. Broncos notoriously have made a name for signing undrafted free agents, which makes the front office’s scouting department that much more impressive. Raymond continued to impress on day seven with a dazzling reach catch on a Paxton Lynch throw on a fourth and three.
