Denver Broncos toughest position group no. 2: Wide Receiver
Most NFL teams keep between 5-7 wide receivers on their rosters, but not most NFL teams have their top four as solidified as the Denver Broncos do with Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler.
The Broncos have one of the best groups of four receivers in the NFL in terms of their talent, but what about behind those guys?
Well, as we get deeper into the offseason, it sounds more and more like Russell Wilson absolutely loves Kendall Hinton, who got his most extensive regular season work in the 2021 season.
The Broncos also used a fifth-round pick on Montrell Washington, who figures to be the team’s primary return specialist.
Because of the presence of those two guys on the roster, where does that leave the rest of the players competing at this particular position group.
Guys that I haven’t even mentioned yet include:
- Travis Fulgham
- Tyrie Cleveland
- Seth Williams
- This year’s UDFAs
It’s an outstanding group of receivers in terms of the talent these guys have and that’s going to make it brutal to make roster cuts.
Last offseason, it looked like Trinity Benson had played his way onto the Denver Broncos’ 53-man roster, which many of the back-end players could still do this year, but Benson was then traded to the Detroit Lions for a couple of draft picks.
There’s always a chance the Broncos could do something like that again, but if the team wants to keep a receiver on the back end of the roster right now when all of the dust settles, they might have to carry seven into the regular season.
