7. Denver Broncos, Russell Wilson

RB: Javonte Williams, Melvin Gordon
WR: Courtland Sutton, Travis Fulgham
WR: Tim Patrick, Kendall Hinton
WR: Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler
TE: Albert Okwuegbunam, Greg Dulcich

The Denver Broncos acquired Russell Wilson in the 2022 offseason, which gives their skill position groups all a substantial boost up the list.

This list isn’t about just how good the skill position talent is because of the quarterback, but just how good they are independent of the quarterback.

There’s been a lot of talent developed in Denver in recent years, but the Broncos haven’t gotten much fanfare because of poor quarterback play.

Courtland Sutton is a legitimate WR1.

Tim Patrick has emerged as a sure-handed, steady target with outstanding size and the ability to win at the catch point.

Jerry Jeudy creates separation easier than just about any receiver in the league.

KJ Hamler, when healthy, has dynamic speed.

Albert Okwuegbunam takes over as the TE1 with Noah Fant off to Seattle, but the Broncos also added Greg Dulcich in the 2022 NFL Draft as a possible TE1 option this year or down the line.

Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon might just be the best running back duo in the league, each with the ability to contribute on third downs effectively.
