What’s going to happen with the Broncos at the cornerback position over the course of the offseason?

Will they lose Chris Harris Jr., or will they pay him the big bucks?

Can Bryce Callahan come back from his foot injury and play at a high level? Does this team have a legitimate starting trio of corners in De’Vante Bausby, Davontae Harris, and Duke Dawson in the slot?

Is Isaac Yiadom a lost cause?

There are so many questions right now for the Broncos at cornerback, but I like the young players they have and I think keeping Chris Harris Jr. after not trading him for a valuable asset is imperative.

If the Broncos bring back Harris, I think this kind of a pick is still somewhat necessary. What if Bausby doesn’t give you the same high level of play we saw before his injury? What if Callahan’s foot isn’t right?

You can’t have too many guys who can make plays on the ball in the secondary, and Dantzler can definitely do that.

He’s got great height and length at 6-foot-2 and can turn and run with excellent speed. He uses that length to make plays on the ball and I think his ability to react to the football makes him a strong fit for Vic Fangio’s defense.
