Default Welcome to Denver, Daeshon Hamilton

Would have gone tackle but Hamilton is a NASTY route runner.

Elway sending a message, we are not going to spend a lot of cash on keeping receivers happy.

Finally upgraded the WR corps. Haven't had depth there since we broomed Welker.

This is more about giving Keenum weapons and every chance to succeed rather than getting rid of DT next season.

DT and Sanders were it, now you have DT, Sanders, Sutton, Hamilton, Henderson, McKenzie.

Agreed. I like these picks, but these guys arenít replacing DT and ES this year. They will need time to develop and learn and hopefully provide some solid depth options in the interim.

Hamilton closer to Antonio brown type route runner. He’s definitely in play in the slot.

Our base offensive package is four wide one back next year.

It means we have insane depth and talent at WR. A much improved corps.

Hamilton, Henderson and McKenzie can provide special teams return skills and depth. Sutton is a outside WR, Hamilton can play outside or slot, Henderson can play outside or slot.

Sunshine doesn't do **** except be tall. Sunshine is gone.

We have no idea if these draft picks can play or not.

I heard all this same BS last year...and every other year.

Wait till we see them do something before you assume anything at all.

What's to assume? Elway is not cutting Sutton or Hamilton so that's 2 WR spots taken, DT and Sanders are safe so that's 2 more for a total of 4.
Henderson is not getting cut after 1 season so that's the 5th WR spot right there.
That leaves a 6th spot likely to go to McKenzie since he's the starting returner.

So your guess is that the Broncos are going to retain 7 WR's to keep Sunshine?

Taking some linemen might not help at all, then?

McKenzie better have a phenomenal preseason. He fumbles one PR and he's done.
