Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver Montrell Washington has had a great offseason, and he’ll end up being the team’s rookie MVP in 2022. Washington was picked in the fifth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, so many in Broncos Country perhaps just didn’t make anything of it.

Most late round draft picks don’t make initial rosters, let alone make an impact, but in the offseason so far, Washington has shown that he belongs in the NFL.

He’s already just about a lock for the roster, and looks like he’ll very easily slide in as the WR4 behind Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler.

With Tim Patrick’s injury, Washington has a chance to make a decent impact as a rookie, and be the team’s rookie MVP in 2022.

Washington is 5’10”, and about 180 pounds.  He’s an athletic freak who ran a sub-4.50 40-yard dash, while also boasting a 36-inch vertical jump and an over 10-foot broad jump.

He was also very much a dual-threat player at Samford, where he went to college.

He totaled nearly 2,000 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns.  He also rushed for 520 yards and accumulated 1,075 kick return yards and 771 punt return yards.

He was the epitome of a do it all player and could bring that skillset to the Broncos.

Russell Wilson is in town, and over his career, he’s shown an ability to spread the ball around to his pass catchers.

Washington being a fifth-round pick and making this much noise almost makes you think he’ll have to play well in 2022.

He’s a shifty athlete who can make circus-type catches, and when he’s on the field, opposing defenses will be paying more attention to Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy.

I think we’ll see Montrell Washington make several big-time plays in 2022, on offense and special teams.

The Broncos may have struck gold with the rookie, and I think he’ll be the team’s rookie MVP in 2022.
