Denver Broncos: Looking ahead for the stellar 2018 rookie class
Isaac Yiadom, CB
After starting off the season on the inactive list, Isaac Yiadom ended up playing in 13 games (1 start) and showing at the end of the season that he is capable of making big strides in year two.
John Elway stated at the time of drafting Yiadom that the Broncos loved his competitiveness and toughness, and those are two qualities he definitely brings to the table, especially in one-on-one situations.
There is no more prevalent example than when Yiadom was burned in his first major action of the season against the Baltiomre Ravens by John Brown. The very next play, the Ravens tried to take another shot at Yiadom’s side of the field, and he made a nice play on the ball.
Yiadom got his first career interception off of Philip Rivers in the last game of the 2018 regular season and showed signs throughout the year of becoming a starter at some point in the near future.
The Broncos are more than likely going to move forward in 2019 as though Yiadom is one of their starting corners, even if they decide to add someone in free agency. Yiadom has the skill set to be a starter at the NFL level and after an up-and-down rookie season, I think he’s a prime breakout candidate for 2019.
