Defensive line: DeMarcus Walker
I don’t think there’s a single player on the defensive line under more pressure than DeMarcus Walker.
The former second-round pick — like many others on this roster — is getting a clean slate with a new coaching staff and finished OTAs as one of the standout players.
Walker was wrongfully a healthy scratch all throughout his rookie season after the coaching staff made a hilarious error in trying to make him an outside linebacker.
His second season with the team didn’t go much better, as he was in the doghouse of Vance Joseph yet again.
Walker has shined in training camp thus far, however.
Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said Walker is ‘off to a good start’ and now we will get to see the type of progress he’s made in games.
If Walker can develop, he and rookie Dre’Mont Jones could be key pieces of Denver’s DL rebuild, which could be coming in 2020.
