2. LeVante Bellamy
He didn’t have a preseason to showcase what he can do and become the next super-hyped preseason backup running back by Broncos Country, but just because he was last year’s UDFA flavor of the year doesn’t mean LeVante Bellamy should be forgotten.
Bellamy was outstanding at Western Michigan, running for a whopping 23 touchdowns in his senior season with the Broncos.
He ran between 4.43 and 4.50 at the Western Michigan pro day and also had a very explosive 39.5-inch vertical jump.
The Broncos kept Bellamy around throughout the 2020 season despite an injury putting him down for a few weeks. He ended up getting a handful of touches (four carries, one reception) over the final two weeks of the season, but his primary contributions came on special teams.
Having paid his dues last season, Bellamy could be in line for an increased opportunity to play offensive snaps in 2021 as an in-house Phillip Lindsay replacement.
Obviously, money talks, and Mike Boone is going to get the first crack at it over Bellamy, but he will have a chance to make the most of his reps and perhaps beat out someone like Royce Freeman for a job in 2021.
