The Denver Broncos added Auburn wide receiver Seth Williams in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
The wide receiver position is a strong one for the Broncos, with Courtland Sutton coming back from a torn ACL, and Tim Patrick, Jerry Jeudy, and K.J. Hamler also on the top of the depth chart.
Some may speculate that the move was made because of a potential trade for Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers that would include Tim Patrick. DaeSean Hamilton’s name has also been considered to be part of that trade package.
Whether that happens or not, we do have to take a look at the position group. While I do not believe that Patrick is going anywhere, it is possible that this spells the end of the road for Hamilton.
Hamilton has caught 81 passes for 833 yards and five touchdowns in three seasons with the team. The quarterback play is partially to blame but that’s not very outstanding.
Another name to keep an eye on is Tyrie Cleveland.

Cleveland has contributed to even less. He played in 10 games last season, recording just six receptions for 63 yards and zero touchdowns. He caught 66.7 percent of the passes thrown his way.
His snap count percentage was a grand total of 6.67 percent.
In three years at Auburn, Williams caught 132 receptions for 2,124 cards and 17 touchdowns. Now that is some solid production, especially for a college player.
At this point in time, it appears the Broncos are planning on keeping quarterback Drew Lock, while they added Teddy Bridgewater. They look to be doing everything they can to help him out as much as possible, as they added running back Javonte Williams in the second round, as well as guard Quinn Meinerz with the 98th overall pick, in round three.
Welcome to the Denver Broncos, Seth. Good luck to you.
