Denver Broncos: Will these recent draft picks survive final cuts?
Marquiss Spencer, DL
When it comes to Marquiss Spencer and his chances of making the Denver Broncos’ 53-man roster, it comes down to three things:
1.) Staying on the field
2.) Performing exceptionally well
3.) Possible injury to other players at his position.
The issue for Spencer is that the defensive line of the Broncos is a pretty big strength. Shelby Harris, Dre’Mont Jones, and Mike Purcell are locked in as starters with Spencer listed as the third backup to Harris. Ahead of him on the depth chart are Shamar Stephen and Jonathan Harris.
Spencer played in 46 games for Mississippi State in four years and recorded 110 tackles including 54 solo and 23 for a loss. He had seven sacks.
Spencer is confident that he can play in different schemes. Whether he is a 3-technique or 4-technique defensive end, he is confident in himself and it’s especially a good trait to have as a guy whose odds are against him, being drafted so late.
There are apparently concerns that Spencer loses control of his weight at times, and also is slow at the snap of the football. That is what his NFL.com scouting report says.
Denver Broncos: Von Miller ‘at peace’ with his future, whatever it may be
Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller said on Tuesday that he is at peace with his future in the NFL, whatever it may be. Will he be a Bronco in 2022?
More will be shown during the team’s two preseason games, which begin Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings. It will be up to him to show coaches that he belongs on the 53-man roster. If not, he’ll have to either find a new team or stick around Denver on the team’s practice squad.
