Broncos select wide receiver KJ Hamler with 46th-overall pick


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Broncos added another weapon to the offensive side of the ball during Friday's second round by drafting former Penn State wide receiver KJ Hamler with the 46th-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Broncos used their first-round pick, the 15th-overall selection, on Alabama wide receiver Jerry Jeudy.

While Jeudy is known for his route-running ability, Hamler possesses some of the top speed in the class.

Hamler, a two-year player at Penn State, caught 98 passes for 1,658 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also served as a return specialist for the Nittany Lions.

He earned second-team All-Big Ten honors at wide receiver and honorable mention All-Big Ten honors as a returner during his final season in Happy Valley.

Hamler was also voted Penn State's team MVP last season after he led the team in receiving.
