With their second-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos selected K.J. Hamler, a wide receiver out of Penn State. It marked the seventh time in team history the team took a wide receiver in round two.
What made the selection of Hamler even more intriguing was the fact that the team used its first-round pick on another wide receiver, Jerry Jeudy. It’s not often a team will use its first two draft choices on the same position, but it showed that the Broncos recognized a deficiency at the position.
The team also wanted to give Drew Lock some improved options to get the ball to in his first full year as the team’s starting quarterback.
Prior to the draft, we took a look at the wide receivers the Broncos had taken in the first round of the draft in their history. That article was driven by the thought that the team would take a wide receiver in the first round.
But few, if any, predicted that a wide receiver would also be taken in the second round. Since that happened, it gives us a chance to look back at every wide receiver the Broncos have ever drafted in the second round in team history.
One of the players on this list is a star on the team’s current roster. Has he done enough to earn the No.1 spot on this list?
Here are the other six wide receivers that the Broncos have drafted in the second round, ranked in order descending order. Who will come in at No.1 and where will Hamler someday fit on this list?
