There’s no doubt about it — the Broncos’ future is certainly bright.
Out of several of the Broncos’ talented corps of young players, Around the NFL writer Marc Sessler picked Courtland Sutton as one of the league’s rising stars on his All-Under-25 Team for NFL.com.
“The future at receiver appears bright with A.J. Brown, D.J. Moore, Terry McLaurin and D.K. Metcalf in the mix,” Sessler wrote. “I’ll take the underrated Sutton over all of them after seeing him thrive as a bona fide No. 1 option in a Denver offense that suddenly looks spicy. With Emmanuel Sanders traded at midseason, the sophomore Sutton spent many Sundays tangling with top-flight cover men, yet still racked up 1,112 yards and six touchdowns on 72 catches.”
Bradley Chubb earned a mention as well, but lost out to fellow edge rushers Nick Bosa and Myles Garrett.
After Sutton turns 25 in October, he will no longer be eligible for this distinction, but candidates for next year’s list from the Broncos could include Drew Lock (currently 23 years old), Chubb (23), Noah Fant (22) and Jerry Jeudy (21).
