As the second week of Denver Broncos training camp is coming to an end, there could be a big competition at wide out. Kelvin McKnight is making his case.
If there is one rookie that I am very excited about that Broncos Country is not talking a lot about, it has to be former Samford wide out Kelvin McKnight. The speedy wide receiver has made some noise at Denver Broncos training camp over the past few days.
What he can do for the Denver Broncos offense and special teams could very well give him a chance to make the final roster. And with the injuries to the wide outs so far in camp, he is getting a real chance to showcase his skill set in front of Vic Fangio and the other coaches.
We got to see a little bit of how he has used his speed and cut back abilities can help him create separation from the cornerbacks that are covering him.
If he is able to use his ability to cut on a route to catch the cornerback slipping like he did to De’Vante Bausby, he is truly going to be special for the Denver Broncos for the 2019 season.
And it seems as if he is putting in the extra work on the football field. He was been on the field a bit longer working on punt returns as he is getting some advice from Special Teams Coordinator Tom McMahon when it comes to the punting game, even sharing some of what he has learned.
There seems to be a promising future ahead for Kelvin McKnight. With how deep the wide receiver room is, he will certainly need to get something going at a consistent pace. He was able to continue the progress during the team’s stadium practice on Saturday.
Hope that McKnight will continue his progress as we get closer to the Hall of Fame game.
