Denver Broncos: Rookie report cards through 12 games
Isaac Yiadom, CB
Through the first 11 games of the season, Yiadom had just a couple of games (Ravens, Steelers) where he played the third cornerback role for the Broncos’ defense, and primarily got work on special teams.
Against the Cincinnati Bengals, Yiadom was given his first real chance to shine and play over the course of a full game for the Broncos, notching a season-high 58 snaps.
Building off of a strong performance against the Steelers in which he allowed just two receptions on five targets, Yiadom was effective again and allowed just one catch on four more targets.
That makes three catches allowed in the last nine passes into Yiadom’s coverage.
The sample size is limited but Yiadom has really come on in the later portion of the season and it couldn’t be at a better time for the Broncos, who will now be without star cornerback Chris Harris Jr., likely for the remainder of the 2018 regular season.
