Denver Broncos: Training camp depth chart predictions
1. Demaryius Thomas
2. Emmanuel Sanders
3. Courtland Sutton (R)
4. DaeSean Hamilton (R)
5. Carlos Henderson
6. Isiah McKenzie
Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are the obvious 1-2 punch at wide receiver unless Denver thinks Sutton, who is 6’3”, 218 pounds, is best as number two, therefore sliding Sanders — 5’11”, 180 pounds — to the slot position.
I think Hamilton and Henderson will fight for the fourth spot. Whoever gets beat goes to number five.
Isaiah McKenzie is a small receiver who the Broncos put in the game during special teams. He had way too many drops at that phase of the game, costing the Broncos field position, and worse, possession of the football, many times as a rookie.
Broncos head coach Vance Joseph previously said that in order for Henderson to make the team, he must stay healthy.
I believe McKenzie will get the sixth spot for two reasons: He is only in his second year, so the Broncos probably feel like he should get a second chance, and Jordan Taylor is coming off of double-hip surgeries. That is a major blow to not only him, but the team.
