Broncos, Briefly: Monday, May 7, 2018

Posted May 7, 2018

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

NFL insiders predict the best rookie class of 2018 (NFL Insiders, ESPN)
I'm a big fan of the Cowboys' draft class as well, but I think Denver's first three picks -- defensive end Bradley Chubb, wide receiver Courtland Sutton and running back Royce Freeman -- could all become immediate contributors. Sutton, a big-bodied receiver from SMU, stands out as a potential red-zone threat for Case Keenum.

In the past two drafts combined, the Denver Broncos have used four picks on wide receivers, including two last weekend on Courtland Sutton (second round) and DaeSean Hamilton (fourth round).

Not only does Miller have to go up against the Rams in Week 1 -- hello, Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh -- but if he survives that, then he has to deal with fellow rookie Bradley Chubb and the Broncos in Week 2.

An emotional week for me: I told my staff at The MMQB and my bosses at Sports Illustrated
that I’ll be leaving June 1—my 29-year anniversary of being hired by SI—and beginning a new job with NBC Sports in July.
