Denver Broncos: Players facing tough road to 53-man roster
Keishawn Bierria, LB
The Broncos have so much talent across the board on their defense, making cuts on that side of the ball will be difficult no matter the position.
With the team planning on using a number of diverse looks with three and even four safeties on the field at times, the linebacker position might get shoved out a bit when it comes to final roster planning.
With that being the case, sixth-round linebacker Keishawn Bierria needs to make sure in preseason play to really set himself apart as a key special teams member, and someone the team absolutely cannot live without in that phase of the game.
Part of the reason they drafted him is for his ability to make plays on special teams, and the quicker he can emerge in that phase, the better.
As of the initial depth chart, Bierria is behind backups Josey Jewell and Zaire Anderson.
