Cracking the Denver Broncos roster is going to be extremely difficult. Here are a few players whose stock took a hit at OTAs.
Making the Denver Broncos roster in 2022 is going to be borderline impossible for players on the fringe.
Now that OTAs are over, camp battles are set to heat up and there are a lot of players all over this roster with a lot to prove in the coming months.
Which players’ stock and chances to make the Broncos roster seemingly went down after OTAs? Let’s take a look at four.
Broncos roster stock down no. 1: Seth Williams, WR
This isn’t one that anyone really wants to hear.
NFL teams typically keep five or six wide receivers on the active roster, but you can’t help but think the Denver Broncos have a chance at keeping seven because of how talented this group is.
It’s probably wise to project the norm rather than exceptions to the rule in this case with how rosters are historically built.
Even if the Denver Broncos do keep seven receivers, it could be an uphill battle for 2021 sixth-round pick Seth Williams, who was protected almost all of last year by the Broncos on the practice squad before a late-season promotion.
Williams is part of the vaunted 2021 NFL Draft class and is someone whose potential has always been there if he could just be more consistent overall.
With a big body and a massive catch radius along with outstanding speed and explosiveness, the traits are all there for Williams to become something in the NFL.
Unfortunately, he’s competing against a lot of guys who have simply risen higher on the depth chart or may have a more prominent role on special teams:
- Travis Fulgham
- Kendall Hinton
- Montrell Washington
- Tyrie Cleveland
Making this Broncos roster at wide receiver is going to be brutally tough. Hopefully, the Broncos will have some other young guys step up and become new practice squad/developmental types of players, because they could lose a lot of these guys in 2022.
