Roster spots will be tough to come by
Roster spots are going to be very tough to come by at the receiver position for the Broncos.
The team is playing it slow with Jordan Taylor, who is likely to start training camp on the PUP list because of a hip surgery he had this offseason.
With Taylor sidelined, the Broncos’ two rookie receivers have shined brighter than maybe anyone else on the roster.
Second-round pick Courtland Sutton and fourth-round pick DaeSean Hamilton have inspired quite a bit of confidence in the Broncos’ coaching staff and their teammates. Both players were rotating in with the number one offense, and Vance Joseph made comments about both players being included in the team’s regular-season plans.
After the 2017 season where rookie involvement was sparse, it’s great to see the Broncos’ coaching staff put so much faith in these young playmakers.
Along with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, the Broncos have four solidified spots at the wide receiver position and they can’t keep everyone.
Even 2017 third-round pick Carlos Henderson’s roster spot has come into question.
Isaiah McKenzie has rotated in with the top offense as a slot receiver, and he could be a player that surprises fans who have been so down on him.
One player who has come out of nowhere this offseason is Tim Patrick, a player who spent some of the 2017 season on the Broncos’ practice squad.
The former Utah receiver has great size and a red zone presence that could earn him a roster spot.
