3 Denver Broncos rookies that aren’t being talked about enough
Denver Broncos underrated rookie no. 1: Matt Henningsen, DL (6th round)
One of the most fascinating rookies on the roster is a guy who barely got the chance to do anything at OTAs because of a calf injury.
Matt Henningsen was one of the best run defenders in the Big Ten last season.
He jumped 37.5 inches at 290 pounds.
Henningsen is a former walk-on at Wisconsin who worked his way into a scholarship and one of the most prominent roles on the Badgers’ defense.
Just as is the case with Eyioma Uwazurike, I think Henningsen is stepping into a really good situation on that defensive line in 2022.
Not that the Broncos don’t have any good players there, but the opportunity for a rookie to come in and make a splash is certainly there for the taking.
Henningsen, with his combination of athleticism, quickness, and strength, should easily be able to pop off the tape during training camp and preseason games.
He’s going to make life difficult for opposing offensive linemen in the same position as him — trying to crack that final roster — and I think we’re going to see him become a preseason fan favorite for the Denver Broncos.
This pick has just felt like a steal since the Denver Broncos made it.
