Denver Broncos training camp battle 2018: Punt returner
There’s no doubt about McKenzie’s speed and playmaking ability in the open field.
When McKenzie gets a full head of steam and an open alley, he is a threat to score.
Unfortunately for the Broncos, a strong start to his rookie season quickly became plagued by fumbles and poor decisions in the return game, dropping his average from 11.1 yards per return in the first quarter of the season to 8.7 yards per return by season’s end.
McKenzie’s struggles with fumbles forced the Broncos to try other players at punt returner despite McKenzie providing their biggest play of the year (a 44-yard burst against the Eagles).
Can McKenzie drop the fumbling issue?
Ideally, McKenzie will return to the form he showed at Georgia, where he had six return touchdowns (five on punt returns) in just three seasons.
