Denver Broncos: Offseason pickups who remain a mystery at OTAs
Tramaine Brock, CB
Tramaine Brock was obviously a very feast and famine type of player when he was last a full-time starter, which was back in 2016.

After domestic violence charges were dropped and Brock was cut by the San Francisco 49ers, he was signed by the Seattle Seahawks and traded to the Minnesota Vikings in the same offseason in 2017.
He barely played while he was with the Vikings in their loaded defensive backfield, leading many to think his best days were far behind him.
The Broncos signed Brock quite early in the 2018 free agency process, leading me to believe they think he can still play at a high level.
Vance Joseph knows him from his days with the 49ers.
Brock has some very big shoes to fill with Aqib Talib getting traded to the Los Angeles Rams.
Despite being one of the players that could potentially replace a high profile starter like Talib, there hasn’t been much talk about Tramaine Brock at Broncos OTAs.
Not that there should be, necessarily. The pads aren’t on, and not everything is even at full speed yet.
Still, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world if we heard some fluff about Brock looking like his ‘old self’ or perhaps making some nice plays on the football.
We haven’t heard any of that so far through OTAs, but perhaps he can make an impact at the team’s mandatory minicamp.
