1. A wide receiver
The Denver Broncos are very deep at the wide receiver position talent-wise, but they are quite inexperienced as well.
I have seven receivers making the Denver Broncos’ initial 53-man roster even though you could say Diontae Spencer is much more of the ‘specialist’ variety as a return man.
I don’t know if Spencer would have made the final roster if KJ Hamler had been fully healthy because Hamler, whose inclusion in the offense was already going to be slow-played, is currently out with a hamstring injury, but he’s not hurt enough to go on IR.
Tim Patrick has been a guy all offseason I felt the Broncos might be willing to dangle as trade bait, but that’s seeming less likely by the day as Patrick seems entrenched right now with the number one offense.
The question here is — how much do the Denver Broncos value guys like Fred Brown and Trinity Benson who have had strong training camps? If they value those guys, we could see a DaeSean Hamilton trade as the primary snaps seem poised to go to Patrick, Courtland Sutton, and Jerry Jeudy with Hamler lurking behind and rookie Tyrie Cleveland also poised to make the roster.
It is also possible that someone who has scouted the Broncos in the past will have liked some of Fred Brown’s work, primarily as a special teams player but also working in with the offense. Brown made some nice plays for the Broncos in last year’s preseason action and he has big-time speed.
Ideally, the Broncos would be able to keep all of their top seven guys including Spencer and stash another couple on the practice squad, but this unit might have too much talent for the Broncos to actually hang on to.
