Denver Broncos: Final 53-man roster prediction
Cornerbacks & Special Teams: Chris Harris Jr., Bradley Roby, Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones, Brendan Langley, Isaac Yiadom, Tramaine Brock (50/53)
Special Teams: Brandon McManus, Marquette King, Casey Kreiter (53/53)
Chris Harris Jr has become a cornerback teams are afraid of throwing at. It’s almost as if he is Champ Bailey 2.0. He and Talib were a great duo until Talib got sent to the Los Angeles Rams.
In his seven-year career, Harris Jr has intercepted sixteen passes and found the end zone three times. He would absolutely have more picks if teams wouldn’t stop throwing in his direction.
Roby moved up the depth chart when Talib was traded. He still needs to improve but that will come as he plays in every game on the other side of the field from Harris Jr. He’s in a very good situation, getting to learn from one of the best in the league, as well as getting knowledge from a guy like Talib.
Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones was a tremendous pickup by the Broncos. He provides depth at the cornerback position, as well as being a key member on special teams.
He returned two kicks for 52 yards against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night.
Rookie Isaac Yiadom has been tested by quarterbacks often this preseason. The experience he is getting is very good for his future. As he gets tested more and more, he will be able to make more plays and live up to his draft position.
Kicker Brandon McManus has been decent for the Broncos since coming to Denver back in 2014 via trade from the New York Giants
He has made 92 of 114 field goals (80.7%) which is pretty good. He is not going anywhere.
Marquette King signed with the Broncos in early April.
King has a booming leg. Throughout his career, his longest punts in each season are 66, 62, 70, 72 and 65 yards.
He’s going to be a very important part of the team, as he will look to pin opposing offenses inside their own 20-yard line or better.
