Jeff Holland, OLB
With Shaquil Barrett returning from injury, Holland’s role moving forward could be in question.
It seems likely he will take the snaps the Broncos used to give Shane Ray, so we may see just a little bit of Holland in the final two weeks unless Von Miller and Bradley Chubb break records in short order, in which case we could see a lot of Holland.
The former star pass rusher at Auburn looked solid in limited opportunities against the Browns. He definitely has natural pass rush abilities and simply knows how to get pressure on the quarterback.
With Barrett and Ray set for free agency and the team not wanting to risk injury to Miller or Chubb, giving Holland some extra play in the coming weeks could prove extremely valuable in terms of just having some tape on him going into the offseason.
The Broncos love what they’ve seen from Holland in practices but he’s got to prove himself capable of being an every-down player.
