The Denver Broncos had the 237th selection in the 2021 NFL Draft and added to their secondary.
Coming to the Mile High City is LSU cornerback Kary Vincent.
He’s a 5-foot-10, 185-pound cornerback who ran a 4.33-second 40-yard dash.
The Broncos had plenty of trouble with injuries at the cornerback position in 2020, as well as 2019. In 2019, their new signing of Bryce Callahan missed the season with a foot injury that he suffered in training camp.
They lost Essang Bassey and A.J. Bouye for some time during the season too.
Speaking of Bouye, he is no longer on the team, as the Broncos released him in February.
In addition to Vincent, the Broncos went to the draft in the first round to add another cornerback in Patrick Surtain II, son of a former Chiefs great.
The Broncos signed Ronald Darby and Kyle Fuller this offseason, With those two, in addition to Callahan and Michael Ojemudia and potentially Bassey, the fight will be between Vincent and Nate Hairston, as well as Parnell Motley.
It will be a fun training camp battle. Who will come out as the best tackler of the bunch? Who will have the best success picking up Vic Fangio’s defensive scheme?
As he is a seventh-round pick, the odds of Vincent making the roster are stacked against him.
Or is that just a cliché?
It’s very possible that the Broncos will come out and say that they were shocked that Vincent was available where they got him and that they see a lot of potential in his game.
The Denver Broncos took a high-upside shot on Auburn wide receiver Seth Williams in the 6th round of the 2021 NFL Draft, adding him to a deep room.
When it comes to getting the most out of your players, Vic Fangio is a mastermind. He has had some very solid defensive backs during his time as a defensive coordinator. Maybe Vincent will end up being a big steal for the Broncos; A hidden late-round gem.
