4. Broncos should consider signing free agent WR Parris Campbell
Perhaps Parris Campbell is not a fit for the Denver Broncos if the team is going to stay away from players in free agency with an injury history this coming offseason, but one thing the team could do a bit better is take one-year dart throws at free agents that would be worthwhile if they can maximize their full potential.
Campbell would be one of those worthwhile dart throws. He’s been healthy this season for the Colts at the perfect time — his contract year. He’s making plays and with three touchdowns on the year, he’s already exceeded the total he had for his entire career up to this point.
The former Ohio State star could give you some playmaking ability from the slot and has the speed to stretch the defense.
5. Broncos should consider drafting Nebraska WR Trey Palmer
Speaking of speed to stretch the defense, Nebraska wide receiver Trey Palmer has plenty of it. The former five-star recruit and LSU transfer put together a fantastic season amidst a ton of turmoil for the Huskers, and wound up earning All-Big Ten recognition for it.
He had massive games this year against Purdue and Iowa and put together consistent production, enough to get recognized by the Senior Bowl where he’ll showcase his skills for next-level talent evaluators in the coming months.
The Denver Broncos may not fire general manager George Paton, but evidence is piling up against him the more time goes along.
Palmer could be had on Day 2 or Day 3, and obviously the Broncos will need to be looking for some value in this draft class at the position. If they go with offensive line early on, there are a handful of receivers later in the Draft that would be intriguing, and Palmer would be near the top of the list.
