"the guy" for the Denver Broncos?" Denver Broncos Roster2019 Broncos roster review: Receiver Courtland SuttonNew Chris Harris Jersey ,132commentsIs Courtland Sutton ready to be “the guy” for the Denver Broncos?MDTFew Broncos enter training camp with more promise and pressure than Courtland Sutton. This time last year, any production out of the SMU product was considered a bonus, and he turned heads left and right with his ability to go up and bring down deep bombs in training camp. The hype was real, and once the regular season began, Sutton showed off his aerial acrobatics as the running line became “50-50 balls are more like 90-10” with the 6’3 Sutton. He started the season off hot in limited snaps, producing 17 receptions for 324 yards and 2 touchdowns over the first 8 games of the season. His potential alongside the team’s 3-5 record led Elway to trade Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans days before their match-up with the Broncos. Courtland Sutton profileSutton got some flak for uneven play over the final half of the regular season, as more opportunities only led to 25 receptions for 380 yards and two touchdowns. Broncos Country was perplexed by his disappearing act in the second half of games after Emmanuel Sanders went down with an Achilles injury. With the 32-year-old veteran expected to miss most of training camp as he completes his rehabilitation from injury, there has been cautious optimism Sutton can make the jump after his first full NFL off-season. Is he ready?Sutton flashed some eye popping athletic gifts his rookie year, but lacked polish. The goodVery good body control. Good spatial awareness.Very toolsy. Solid release. Comfortable catching passes outside his frame.Sneaky speed.Good lateral mobility. It’s easy to get carried away imagining what the future could hold for Sutton. If you drew up an NFL receiver, it’d look a lot like the 6’3” 218 lb Bronco. His agility drills at the NFL Combine are eye-popping for his size, and his 6.57 3-cone time was in the 96th percentile for all wideouts. I did not expect Sutton to look as solid off the snap as he does when I first turned my focus to him. He displays a reliable stutter step and uses it to creep past a soft press. He’ll also win his fair share of hand fights with defenders and has a decent swim move to help him get free of the line of scrimmage.Sutton’s best routes come out of the vertical and short areas of the field. He has the frame and movement skills after the catch to become very dangerous on crossers, ins Derek Wolfe Jersey , and slants in Scangarello’s offense. His 16.8 yards per reception ranked 7th in the entire league in 2018 and he’s easily the Broncos’ most dangerous vertical threat. Sutton’s game winning catch against the L.A. Chargers. What really jumps off the tape watching Sutton’s 2018 film is how easily he can stop, turn, and pluck the ball out of the air while he goes up over a defensive back. He routinely looks like a power forward boxing out his opponent, and he’s such a dangerous vertical threat so defenders have to respect him over the top. This gives him room to come back and work underneath them. No big deal, Casey Hayward’s only a Pro Bowler. The badLacks go-to separation move.Reliance on outside release.50% catch rate.More smooth than sudden.If there’s one weakness that will prevent Sutton from ever developing into a true go-to guy, it’s his lack of separation quickness. In the six games I watched, he only showed hints of a rocker step in Denver’s match-up with Houston.Instead, he relied upon the threat of him running over the top of them to get open underneath or, when that failed, beating them physically. He’ll occasionally win with a push by, but needs to add more to his bag of tricks if he wants to become more than an adequate route runner.This isn’t a rare occurrence for a rookie pass catcher, as most can get open with their athleticism in college Max Garcia Jersey , but to grow as a receiver, it is crucial for Sutton to improve at route manipulation. Sutton will need to improve the technical aspects of his game if he’s to meet expectations. As good as Sutton’s YPC was in 2018, he caught just 42 of 84 total targets, which ranked ahead of only 12 players who had 30 targets+ last year. While part of it can be attributed to Case Keenum’s deep accuracy, there’s no doubt Sutton also dropped a few catchable passes. Generally rule: If it hits you in the hands, you need to haul it in. There are a number of deep misses on Sutton’s rookie film. Part of it is just the cost of doing business, as completing 20+ yards downfield isn’t easy. Keenum also left a lot to be desired as a gunslinger. Sutton’s role in the incompletions can’t be wholeheartedly dismissed, however. Sutton’s three biggest issues in one play. In the play above, the Bengals are playing Cover 1 with a press. The Broncos use a fake to Royce Freeman to give Sutton open space to run his slant behind the linebacker. Only William Jackson has the hip fluidity to stick on the Broncos’ receiver through his first step and stay on him through the route. Sutton’s forced to catch Keenum’s pass with Jackson draped on him and ultimately can’t bring it in.It wouldn’t have been an easy reception, and Jackson’s among the most underrated corners in the league, but if Sutton’s going to settle in as Denver’s WR1, he needs to win these looks.

The extra reps could come in handy as Sutton works to develop chemistry with his new quarterback. But ready or not Cheap Dalton Risner Jersey , Sutton looks like he’ll open camp as Joe Flacco’s number one wide receiver. Let’s hope he’s ready for it.

Friday in Indianapolis was no different for the guys from 1st & 10 @ 10 on Orange and Blue 760. They were joined by Phil Milani from Denver Broncos TV. Obviously they chatted about the Combine, but specifically quarterbacks. To get even more narrowed in, they asked Milani a specific question ... If Denver does not pick a first-round QB of the future in the 2019 or 2020 drafts, how will you feel? The answers ranged from pleased and neutral to disappointed and angry. “That would probably mean that the quarterback they had playing for them played extremely well, and I’d be very pleased,” Milani said. It’s a great answer to a fun question. So let’s put it to Broncos Country ...
