Denver Broncos: 2019 Rookie report card at the bye week
The Denver Broncos have yet another impactful rookie class in 2019, including their head coach and offensive coordinator. How do they grade so far?
After a very strong rookie class came in through the 2018 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos appear to have hit on yet another rookie class in 2019.
This rookie class also technically includes the team’s head coach and offensive coordinator, and we’ll give them some grades as well, but even if you just look at the players the Broncos got in the 2019 NFL Draft or in their 2019 rookie class in general, this is a fun, impressive group.
Let’s have a refresher on the rookies in 2019 contributing (or expected to contribute) to the Denver Broncos.
- TE Noah Fant
- LG Dalton Risner
- QB Drew Lock
- DL Dre’Mont Jones
- OLB Justin Hollins
- WR Juwann Winfree
- OLB Malik Reed
- TE/FB Andrew Beck
Since they finished with a top-five pick at the end of the 2017 season, the Broncos have been re-building the core of this team, and the last two draft classes appear to have really set the foundation for something special.
That is, of course, provided the quarterback position works out.
Now that we’re at the Broncos’ bye week, let’s reflect on the past nine weeks and what we’ve seen from this talented young core of players (and our prominent rookie coaches).
