Wide receiver (6, 15/53)

  • 1. Courtland Sutton
  • 2. Jerry Jeudy (rookie)
  • 3. KJ Hamler (rookie)
  • 4. DaeSean Hamilton
  • 5. Diontae Spencer
  • 6. Tyrie Cleveland (rookie)

This prediction could change certainly as the Broncos have competitions for other deep position groups on their roster, but all of these players could have a role in 2020 and the Broncos could make a case for seven receivers.

Courtland Sutton has emerged into one of the best young receivers in the game.

Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler should see substantial snaps this season as rookies with Jeudy likely developing quickly into the WR2 for Drew Lock.

There could be key competitions for back-end positions on this roster with veteran Tim Patrick and rookie Tyrie Cleveland out of Florida, known as one of the best special teams players in this draft class.

Diontae Spencer earned his keep last season as a return specialist and should be back in that same role in 2020.
