7. Jaleel McLauglin making his way to the 53-man roster

With Tyler Badie missing the game, undrafted rookie running back Jaleel McLaughlin was the RB3 in the game against the 49ers ... and what a game he had.

Once again, the explosive running back has shown that the Broncos should have him on the final 53-man roster. McLaughlin had an all-around perfect game, led the team in rushing yards with 45, had one rushing touchdown, a receiving touchdown, and a 44-yard kick return. A complete player that can definitely make a huge positive impact on the Denver Broncos offense.

McLaughlin, a running back that has been compared by Sean Payton with Alvin Kamara, Darren Sproles and Reggie Bush, has shown speed, and versatility, and has made a strong case to make the 53-man roster despite being an undrafted free agent.
