Fifth round draft pick Justin Hollins looks to be a solid player for the Denver Broncos defense. Wherever that may be, the Oregon linebacker hopes to help.
While the Denver Broncos were not as active on day three of the NFL Draft, they were able to select a linebacker to strengthen their unit. Justin Hollins played linebacker for the University of Oregon.
His abilities to get to the quarterback and disrupt plays at will were well noticed. There is no doubt that he can be a solid addition to the Broncos defense. However, some of Broncos Country were puzzled because they did not draft an inside linebacker.
Not to fear, Justin Hollins had a phone call with the media and hopefully was able to put their minds at ease with his flexibility on the defense.
"“That’s pretty true. I’m going to play anywhere they need me. I’m one of those guys who is just going to get in and play where ever I am needed, whether that is special teams, inside, outside—it doesn’t matter. I am here to compete. I am here to play as hard as I can and provide the team with some type of impact.”-Justin Hollins (via Denver Broncos PR)"
It seems as if Justin Hollins could have a big role in Vic Fangio’s defensive scheme. It is great to hear that he is flexible to play both inside and outside linebacker. That could really help the Broncos defense thrive.
In my eyes, Justin Hollins could be the dark horse draft pick for the Broncos. Especially if he can thrive playing anywhere on the field as a linebacker. Having him rush the outside or inside of the opposing offense can throw teams for a loop.
I am very excited to see what he can bring to the Denver Broncos defense. I just hope that he can bring that pressure and help elevate the team to that next level.
