Three most overrated players on the Denver Broncos: T Calvin Anderson
Calvin Anderson has, so far, been a good story in the NFL. He was an undrafted player who bounced around a couple of teams before finding a home with the Denver Broncos.
Now entering his fourth and most important season, Calvin Anderson looks to win the starting right tackle job, which would give Denver a likely long-term solution at the position, something the team has not had in years.
However, I think the fanbase hypes up Anderson a little too much. He hasn’t exactly done much of anything in the NFL. He’s appeared in 27 games through three seasons and has started just five.
Many thought he was in line to win the job last year, but the team had brought in both Bobby Massie and Cameron Fleming. Massie won the job.
In 2022, George Paton added even more bodies who could play tackle, signing Billy Turner, Tom Compton, re-signing Cameron Fleming after a few months, and drafting Luke Wattenberg, who can play both outside and in.
That’s an awful lot of uncertainty and an awful lot of players who could play right tackle. If Calvin Anderson was the promising young player that many in the fanbase think he is, why have the Broncos brought in four other players who could play right tackle for the team?
Which four players stood out on Day 1 of Denver Broncos training camp in 2022? We take a look at some of the earliest standouts.
I am not actively rooting against him, as I think it’s in the best interest of the team long-term for him to win the job, but I do think the fans give him too much credit.
