The Denver Broncos have a pretty critical preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks. Who are some intriguing players to watch for?

The Denver Broncos’ preseason action continues on Saturday night against the Seattle Seahawks. The Broncos had an outstanding preseason debut as a team against the Minnesota Vikings a week ago, and they’ll look to build off of that strong start in Seattle.

The starters will be expected to play a bit more in this game than we all saw against the Vikings, and it could end up being the final “dress rehearsal” for some players before the regular season opener on September 12 against the Giants.

Even with the starters expected to see a little more action in this game than last week, it will still be a crucial week for some players fighting for roles or fighting for 53-man roster spots. Who are some intriguing names to keep an eye on?

Let’s look at a few.

1. Kary Vincent Jr., CB (no. 35)

The Denver Broncos are incredibly deep at the cornerback position right now, and there could be some really difficult decisions coming up in terms of what players they do/don’t or can/can’t keep.

Kary Vincent Jr. was a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft who opted out of the 2020 college football season, but showed some long-term potential as a nickel or slot at the NFL level on LSU’s outstanding championship team in 2019.

Vincent has legit sub-4.40 speed at the cornerback position and despite his lack of size, he is aggressive in playing the ball and does well to match receivers in short areas with his quickness and burst.

Vincent made some plays against the Vikings in week one of the preseason and could be making his case for a 53-man roster spot.

If the Denver Broncos will keep 11 or 12 defensive backs, Vincent might have good odds regardless of who the team does or doesn’t keep ahead of him on the depth chart. With that being said, if he can have a big game against Seattle, you never know if the Broncos might be a little bit more confident to potentially trade someone like Bryce Callahan if they can get good value in return.
