2. DL Elijah Garcia

Broncos practice squad defensive end Elijah Garcia could be a potential gameday elevation that could boost a lackluster Denver pass rush. With defensive coordinator Vance Joseph's pass-rushing unit ranking near the bottom of the NFL in pass rush win rate and generated pressure, second-year defensive linemen could provide the spark the interior pass rush is looking for down the stretch.

For those who do not recall, Elijah Garcia was a massive training camp standout earlier this year who initially made the final 53-man roster however, was eventually demoted to the practice squad following a wave of roster moves.

Despite appearing in just three games this season, Garcia could be the next young defensive player to emerge as a hidden gem in Vance Joseph's defense. With how poorly starting defensive end Jonathan Harris has performed this season, it could make sense to shake up the unit considering how stagnant Denver's pass rush was in Houston in Week 13.
