Though not the same kind of athlete, Hamilton is ahead of fellow rookie Courtland Sutton when it comes to the finer points of playing receiver, Benjamin Allbright of 104.7 FM Denver reports.
This development should be of no surprise to most fans, considering Denver's brass made it clear following the draft that Hamilton won them over with his route running at the Senior Bowl. With no clear hierarchy among the pool of young targets behind veterans Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas, the rookie out of Penn State could up as the No. 3 option this season, even if Sutton has a higher ceiling long term. Hamilton's strong hands and experience in the slot should be of particular interest for a Denver team that has received minimal production from its No. 3 targets in recent seasons.
