DaeSean Hamilton, WR
After virtually no involvement in the offense over the course of his first couple of months of regular season play, the Broncos traded Demaryius Thomas and thrust DaeSean Hamilton into a more prominent role.
Hamilton ended up catching 30 passes in his rookie season, only averaging 8.1 yards per reception.
He finished with a pair of touchdowns and showed (in limited reps) his outstanding route running abilities, strong hands, and playmaking ability.
The Broncos seemed to try to manufacture a few touches toward the end of the season for Hamilton, but we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of what he’s capable of doing.
If the Broncos decide to move on from Emmanuel Sanders this offseason (and even if they don’t), we should be getting a heavy dose of Hamilton this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him become one of the most valuable players on the offense as the Broncos work to get Case Keenum outside the pocket more often.
Hamilton is going to be a fantastic outlet and I think the more years he spends in the NFL, the more effective he’s going to be.
