How Does Josey Jewell Impact the Broncos Roster
By Tylor Walden
The Denver Broncos selected inside linebacker Josey Jewell in their first fourth round draft pick. How does he impact the roster for the Broncos?
Well Broncos Country, the inside linebacker position has been taken care of. Another need is down. And the player set to help out at the inside linebacker position is Josey Jewell from Iowa.
With their first fourth round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, the Broncos drafted Jewell in hopes he can provide some depth and support at the inside linebacker position. With the departure of Danny Trevathan, the Denver Broncos struggled to get any help in covering running backs and tight ends.
Josey Jewell is a player that can impact the team right away. He has the ability to sprint to the ball carrier and take him down. His pass coverage is pretty solid as well. We all know that it is an area that has been lacking.
I saw first hand when the Broncos played the Falcons in 2016. They could not cover those running backs. And with Rob Gronkowski coming back, it will be key to have a player that can cover him.
Josey Jewell was a big time leader during his time with the Iowa Hawkeyes. Hopefully he can bring some of that leadership to the Broncos.

How does he help impact the Denver Broncos on defense? He could make a quick impact. With Todd Davis struggling in pass coverage, if he is not careful, the Iowa product could swoop right in and start on day one.
If he can continue his production like he did in college, he can do some great things for the Denver Broncos organization for years to come.
The Broncos are going a great job in this draft. Let’s keep it going!
