Defensive backs (10, 53/53)


  • 1. AJ Bouye
  • 2. Michael Ojemudia (rookie)
  • 3. Bryce Callahan
  • 4. Isaac Yiadom
  • 5. Duke Dawson
  • 6. De’Vante Bausby
  • 7. Davontae Harris


  • Kareem Jackson
  • Justin Simmons
  • Trey Marshall

The Broncos don’t have a lot of experience at the safety position behind All-Pro Justin Simmons or Kareem Jackson, but Trey Marshall did some really nice work for them last year in spot duty.

At the cornerback position, AJ Bouye and Bryce Callahan will be critical to the team’s success in 2020, as will rookie Michael Ojemudia who could be one of the starters on the outside.

The Broncos have Isaac Yiadom, Duke Dawson, De’Vante Bausby, and Davontae Harris providing depth at corner, and while the team may not ultimately keep seven guys at corner, we could see players like Yiadom, Dawson, or Harris getting some shots at playing reserve roles at safety as well as cornerback.
