2. KJ Hamler, WR

The Broncos used their top two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft on wide receivers, and we should finally get to see them on the field together against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week two.

Second-round pick KJ Hamler will be a full-go at practice this week, meaning he’s on track to play and provide a big-time boost to the offense in the speed department.

Even if it’s just window dressing before the snap, KJ Hamler’s speed is going to keep the Steelers’ defense honest and it will be a tremendous weapon for the Broncos.

With so many guys to spread the ball around to, it’s easy to assume that Hamler’s impact in his first NFL game will be modest, but his speed does so many things even when he’s not getting the ball.

Considering he was the clear WR1 at Penn State and the focus of defensive coordinators in the Penn State passing game on a weekly basis, it will be fascinating to see how he fares as a secondary option on an NFL offense.
