Denver Broncos Draft Profile: Donte Moncrief
Last season, the Denver Broncos had quite an elite wideout trio. Peyton Manning had help picking apart defenses with Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker. With Decker leaving the team via free agency, one of the needs that the Broncos could look at is wide receiver.
The team did pick up Emmanuel Sanders, but it is important to have depth at the position, especially with Welker dealing with a concussion last season. I think that the Broncos should look at drafting Donte Moncrief if he happens to become available in the early rounds.
He has a thick frame as a wideout, which makes it difficult for corners to compete with the Mississippi Rebels draft prospect. Add on his speed and route running abilities, and you have a wideout who will be difficult to stop. The key to his ability on running routes is his sudden break when he cuts and makes the route. Even in tight coverage, a cornerback could lose Moncrief with the sudden move in the cut on the route.
He can also be key in the running game as he has shown to be a solid downfield blocker, allowing the running back to get a few more solid yards. His only weakness might be the straight-line speed. He is not the slowest receiver, but is not as fast as a lot of people believe.
With the skills that Moncrief has, the Broncos should take the chance and see what he can bring. He shows a lot of promise and could fill that hole that was left by Decker.
