Many felt the Denver Broncos almost had an embarrassment of riches when it came to their receiver talent heading into last season. With players such as Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and KJ Hamler all set for roles in some capacity, the Broncos appeared ready to lead a stampede against any opponent who dared get in the way.
Yet, the end result was much different, as Patrick ended up tearing his ACL during training camp, and Hamler was also limited to just seven games.
Still, Jeudy came just 28 yards away from a 1,000-yard season, and Sutton wasn’t far behind, finishing with 829 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games. Yet, the Broncos finished 19th in passing yards and 23rd in passing touchdowns as they led a league-worst scoring attack.
Now, facing a similar situation heading into 2023, with a corps led by Jeudy and Sutton, complemented by the returns of Patrick and Hamler, the Broncos once again appear to have a deep pool of talent on their receiver depth chart.
