Denver Broncos depth chart: McTelvin Agim, DL

One player that hasn’t made enough waves so far in training camp is 2020 third-round pick McTelvin Agim.

Agim’s biggest headline thus far has been the fact that he got into the first significant fight at Broncos practices so far.

Meanwhile, you have head coach Nathaniel Hackett out there talking up DeShawn Williams, a player who re-signed this offseason for next-to-nothing. We’ve also seen some positive reports and updates on rookies Eyioma Uwazurike and Matt Henningsen on the defensive line.

Jonathan Harris also made some noise earlier in the offseason.

The point is, McTelvin Agim simply hasn’t been making the kind of waves we might have hoped for going into training camp.

Agim is a very athletic defensive lineman who has flashed in the opportunities he’s been given over the past couple of years with Vic Fangio.

Unfortunately, those opportunities were extremely rare and limited for whatever reason, so entering his third NFL season, we don’t really know what kind of player Agim is capable of being out there with extended snaps.

The preseason is going to be huge for him because as of right now, would he even be on the team’s final 53-man roster?

I think that’s a fair question even though there have just been a handful of actual padded practices. It’s hard to evaluate defensive linemen without full contact, so we’ll see if Agim can show out in preseason play, perhaps even ascending up the depth chart in the coming weeks.
