Broncos' De'Angelo Henderson: Full participant at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henderson (ankle) was a full participant at the first day of OTAs Tuesday, the Denver Post reports.

Just 10 days removed from a car accident that resulted in minor injuries after his Jeep flipped over, Henderson appears healthy and ready to contribute in his first full offseason with the Broncos. The departure of C.J. Anderson during the offseason leaves a void atop the depth chart, with Henderson, Devontae Booker and Royce Freeman expected to contend for snaps. Henderson only rushed seven times as a rookie and will likely require a strong camp to overtake the other two for the lead job.

Broncos' Troy Fumagalli: Sidelined by sports hernia to begin OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fumagalli did not participate in the opening OTA session Tuesday due to a sports hernia, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.

Fumagalli Mike Klis of 9News Denver underwent sports hernia surgery following his senior season at Wisconsin and is making progress in his recovery from the issue. No mention of a timeline has surfaced yet, but the rookie tight end will likely attempt to get back as soon as possible to show the coaches what he can do. The tight end position has an opening for reps atop the depth chart, though Jeff Heuerman is considered the favorite for the starting job.

Broncos' Jordan Taylor: Aiming for mid-camp return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vance Joseph indicated Tuesday that Taylor (hip) will "probably be back mid-camp," Zac Stevens of BSNDenver.com reports.

Taylor was already slated to miss OTAs, but it appears his issue will pass through minicamp in June and extend slightly into training camp. The third-year wideout saw 258 offensive snaps last season, but the additions of Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton during the 2018 NFL draft may lessen his outlook entering the 2018 campaign.

Broncos' Clinton McDonald: Could be underrated addition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos are likely to utilize McDonald as a pass-rush specialist, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.

Despite his plugger frame, McDonald has racked up at least five sacks in three of the past five seasons. Unlike in Tampa Bay, where he was a liability against the run, the Broncos are likely to deploy McDonald mostly in passing situations while some combination of Domata Peko, Kyle Peko, and Zach Kerr man the middle on base downs. The result might mean fewer snaps for McDonald, but better quality production. It could also mean that, after losing much of its interior rush following Super Bowl 50, the Broncos can count on McDonald, DeMarcus Walker, Shelby Harris, and Derek Wolfe to provide improved pressure up the middle.

Broncos' Jeff Heuerman: Ready for top job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Heuerman should be the favorite for the Broncos' No.1 job, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.

Klis' logic is essentially that, because Jake Butt -- the apparent future at the position for Denver -- missed all of his 2017 rookie season to a torn ACL, Heuerman should be considered the 2018 de facto starter. The point is fair, but ignores the fact that teams start inexperienced players all the time and that Heuerman, who also tore his ACL ahead of his 2015 rookie season, hasn't done much in Mile High. Since being drafted in the third round in 2015, Heuerman has just 18 catches and, though he has proved to be dangerous up the seam, has never established himself as starter material. After a position shakeup at the end of last season, it was undrafted Austin Traylor who garnered more snaps than Heuerman, 179 to 139, during the final five games of the year. If Heuerman ends up as the team's starter it will be because he finally turned it on this offseason, not because he has provided any previous production to warrant the job.
