Denver Broncos rookie class update and season outlook
Practice Squad Rookies
35 Dymonte Thomas, S
Thomas, the safety out of Michigan, showed off his skills this preseason as one of the highest graded players on the Broncos’ roster by PFF. He had a pick six in the preseason finale against Arizona.
41 Jerrol Garcia-Williams, LB
The Broncos seem to have an eye for talent at the linebacker position, particularly when it comes to late round players, undrafted players, and guys who they find off of other teams’ scrap heap. I’ll reserve judgment on this one and defer to theirs.

98 Tyrique Jarrett, NT
Jarrett, the massive nose tackle out of Pittsburgh, had a nice showing in training camp and the preseason. He was most definitely a consideration for the 53-man roster, and the Broncos are fortunate he was able to stick on their practice squad.
38 Marcus Rios, CB
Rios is one of the coolest stories on the Broncos’ practice squad. He overcame a life-threatening infection to eventually get back into football shape, and now he’s with the Broncos in this capacity. Hopefully he continues to hone his skills and prove he belongs with the squad.
68 Elijah Wilkinson, OT
Wilkinson was an undrafted free agent out of Massachusetts who is essentially the offensive equivalent to Tyrique Jarrett. He’s a mountain of a man who will get a chance to compete on the practice squad, and perhaps earn himself a shot to compete in camp next year as well.
