Denver Broncos: Three training camp battles to keep an eye on
4th-6th Wide receiver spots
The Denver Broncos have some fantastic wide receivers.
Emmanuel Sanders will be returning from a torn Achilles’ tendon. Normally a player in his 30’s returning from such a horrible injury is devastating news. But Sanders has looked fantastic in his return since injuring the Achilles in December of 2018.
Behind Sanders is Courtland Sutton, who saw a great amount of playing time after the trade of Demaryius Thomas, as well as after Sanders went down. Fellow 2018 draft pick DaeSean Hamilton will also see some time on the field. The question is, how much?
Other wideouts on the team: Tim Patrick, River Cracraft, Juwann Winfree, Brendan Langley, Aaron Burbridge, Fred Brown, Kelvin McKnight, Romell Guerrier and Trinity Benson.
Assuming Sanders, Sutton, Hamilton make the team (it would be a shock if this scenario didn’t occur), who are the others that will be on the final 53-man roster?
How many wide receivers will make the team? Will it be five or six?
Patrick and Cracraft were both on the team last season. I personally really liked them.
Langley was also on the team in 2018, but as a cornerback. What type of impact will he make as a wide receiver for the Broncos? He looked very good in some videos that were posted online this offseason.
Langley played wide receiver in college, so he is familiar with a lot of what goes into the position. That should give him an advantage when the final decisions are to be made.
Benson, Guerrier, McKnight and Winfree are all rookies. Winfree would be the most logical player to claim the final wide receiver spot as he was a draft pick by the team this year.
