Denver Broncos: 3 players we need to see more of in second half of season
Percentage of offensive snaps in 2020: 6.83
Tyrie Cleveland was chosen with the fourth-to-last pick in the 2020 draft (No. 252 overall). That is a pick that many consider to be nothing more than a dart throw, but the Broncos may have hit with it.
Cleveland had a solid summer and a terrific training camp to make the roster, beating out guys like Juwanna Winfree and Fred Brown for a spot. He was seen as a guy who could contribute on special teams right away but he could and should work his way into the offense at some point.
He has seen just 28 total offensive snaps this season, but the Broncos have already have Np. 1 wide receiver Courtland Sutton go down for the year and injuries have also hampered the start for rookie K.J. Hamler.
Plus, we have seen about enough out of DaeSean Hamilton, right?
Tim Patrick has been a bright spot and Jerry Jeudy continues to come along as a rookie, but Cleveland should get some chances to make plays as well. He has good size and the kind of speed to get separation from defenders. It would be interesting to see the Broncos try to make him a deep threat before the year is over to see what they might have there.
