Denver Broncos: 4 young players who can still blossom
4. Michael Ojemudia, CB
Draft class: 2020
Michael Ojemudia had an up-and-down rookie season. He started the season well, got benched for a while, and finished the season strong, to the tune of 62 tackles, 6 passes defended, and 4 forced fumbles.
Since the offseason began, it’s fair to say that he’s been a bit lost in the secondary overhaul. What looked as if he’d start the 2021 season as a starting CB now potentially sees him as CB5.
I think being pushed down the depth chart a bit can help him, though. Fuller, Darby, and Callahan are all proven veterans who will surely provide some wisdom, and OJ most likely won’t be forced to play as much as he did in 2020, so he could feel more comfortable as he progresses in the Fangio defense.
With Kyle Fuller and Bryce Callahan set to be free agents at the end of the season, the team can look to OJ as a starter next to Patrick Sutrtain II and Ronald Darby potentially.
