Broncos' Jeff Holland: Turning heads during minicamp

Holland has impressed during the Broncos' offseason program and could have a good chance at winning a reserve linebacker role for the club, Benjamin Allbright of Mile High Sports 1340 reports.

Though Holland is a bit of a tweener at 6-foot-2 and 249 pounds, it was somewhat of a surprise that he went undrafted after finishing third in the SEC with 9.5 sacks for Auburn in 2017. In addition to being an early standout in the spring, Holland's hopes of cracking the 53-man unit as an undrafted rookie have improved after it was revealed earlier this month that outside linebacker Shane Ray would require surgery on his left wrist that could sideline him for the start of the season. If Ray is forced to open the campaign on the Physically Unable to Perform list, the Broncos would benefit from another high-motor player like Holland on the outside with Von Miller, Bradley Chubb and Shaquil Barrett representing the only edge-rushing threats on the roster.
