Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders gave an awesome speech to some young football players talking about creating good habits…
Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is one of the best in the NFL when it comes to footwork and route running.
Since he’s an expert on the topic, it makes sense that he would have the attention of a bunch of young football players and be able to speak as candidly as he does in this clip that is going viral.
That type of speech and instruction coming from a Super Bowl champion and Pro Bowl wide receiver will undoubtedly stick with those young players.
Sanders is coming off of a down 2017 season with the Denver Broncos in which he played through a bad ankle injury suffered early in the season.
Sanders attempted to play through the injury and help the Broncos’ offense because they desperately needed his playmaking ability, and he wasn’t even back to 100 percent strength at OTAs.
The Broncos are hoping Sanders can return to peak physical form in 2018 and be a top target for new quarterback Case Keenum.
If Sanders and fellow wide receiver Demaryius Thomas are both fully healthy, they can still be among the best wide receiver duos in the NFL, if not the best, even better than the younger duo of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen in Minnesota.
Sanders understands how to manipulate defensive backs with route running and footwork, and often makes players look silly with his outstanding quickness.
That obviously was limited in 2017 because of his ankle injury, but Sanders at 80 percent is still going to be quicker than most defensive backs in the NFL.
He and Thomas will play major roles if the Broncos’ offense is to be rejuvenated and resurrected in 2018.
