Denver Broncos: Patrick Surtain pick could lead to Ojemudia at safety
The Denver Broncos make the surprising pick to pass on the quarterback for the cornerback they are Surtain of.
The Denver Broncos passed on Justin Fields and Mac Jones for the cornerback position in Alabama’s Patrick Surtain. Surtain will join a cornerback room that could see some turnover in the future. Bryce Callahan has shown All-Pro potential in his career but also is injury is riddled a bit. Kyle Fuller signed for a one-year deal with uncertainty he’s here next season. There are some questions with one player in particular: Michael Ojumedia.
Surtain adds a player with clean tape and sound technique and coverage ability. He is capable of being an outside cornerback or start inside. He is smooth as baby lotion. Ojumedia is one who very well might see time at safety now.
There are some rumblings that the Denver Broncos may move him to the safety position. Ojumedia is another one like a Surtain where they are technically gifted in how they are as players. There are possibilities the Broncos could see Surtain see action on special teams, but as a first-round pick does Denver want to see him there.
The cornerback room is loaded even after Fuller, Callahan, Ojemudia, and Surtain. Parnell Motley, Essang Bassey, and others. With the number of injuries the Broncos and a position, you can have a ton of in the NFL. One thing is very well known. Surtain is going to be a really good player in the defense and will be a cornerback in the future. He was also one of the few picks it’s impossible to hate.
Denver Broncos pass on QB, add Patrick Surtain II to revamped secondary
The Denver Broncos stayed at nine overall and selected Alabama cornerback Patrick Surtain II, making Crimson Tide players in consecutive years.
Even though this is about the cornerback position depth chart this might be the best news for Vic Fangio. Surtain gives you the best potential defensive player in the draft. Now it is time see what else is in store for the Denver Broncos.
