Which players could be surprise cuts for the Denver Broncos?

Outside of injuries, roster cuts are the worst part of training camp every year. In 2020, even with a shortened offseason, they are going to be particularly brutal for the Denver Broncos.

Predicting roster cuts isn’t like trying to predict the NCAA March Madness bracket — it’s much more of an exact science than that. With that said, there are plenty of unpredictable factors like trades that can impact final roster projections.

There are also situations with players who will go on the initial roster and eventually revert to injured reserve, or as we’ve seen in years past, it’s possible the Denver Broncos will put a guy on their initial 53-man roster only to cut him the next day if someone preferable is awarded to them on waivers.

Roster moves at this time of year can be financially motivated decisions, but at this juncture of the ‘offseason’ there’s no question that the majority of moves made are football-related.

With expanded practice squads, the Denver Broncos have a chance to really keep a lot of the guys they will cut on Saturday, but they will have to expose them to the waiver wire first.

With that being said, here are my picks for players who could be surprising cuts for the Denver Broncos on Saturday.
