Leadership

More from Predominantly Orange

In many ways, Hamilton is known for his leadership.

As you can see in this video, he’s a leader in his own family, but he’s also set a great example for a number of fellow Nittany Lions in his time there.

I was able to chat with Hamilton before the 2018 NFL Draft, and he told me he was always willing to take players under his wing. He said he was a mentor to Chris Godwin, who actually went to the NFL the year before Hamilton (drafted by the Buccaneers in 2017).

This is a football player who exemplifies leadership, both by going the extra mile as well as leading by doing.

A common theme for many Broncos draft picks this year was leadership. Those intangible qualities were something the team valued extremely highly this offseason. Many of the free agents they signed or the players they traded for were team captains at their former locations, and a majority of their draft picks were team captains in college.

Hamilton is one of those high character players who works extremely hard at his craft, and it should pay huge dividends for the Broncos.
