Broncos Offensive Rookie of the Year: Greg Dulcich
It was a slow start for third-round pick Greg Dulcich, who was injured to start the season and ended up playing in only 10 games. But in those 10 games, he showed himself to be a potential weapon in the future.
Dulcich seemed to build a great on-field relationship with Wilson and he made big plays down the field as a tight end. His 33 receptions on the season finished third on the team, behind only Jeudy and Courtland Sutton.
As long as he can stay healthy, Dulcich should be in line for a big season in his second year in the league.
Broncos Defensive Rookie of the Year: Damarri Mathis
There weren’t a lot of options to choose from here as second-round pick Nik Bonitto was a bit of a disappointment as a rookie but fourth-round choice Damarri Mathis made somewhat of an impact.
Pressed into action, Mathis had 65 total tackles (fifth on the team) and seven pass deflections. His rookie season was not without some growing pains, however.
In the team’s overtime loss to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 6, he was penalized for pass interference four times. That doesn’t happen often.
But for a young player looking to adjust to the speed of the professional level, it’s not going to come easily. Mathis gained some great experience as a rookie and when he was good, he looked really good.
In addition to Dulcich, it looks like the Broncos made a good draft choice here.
