NFL.com’s Chad Reuter is using foresight to project this season’s All-Rookie Team. Broncos Country has no complaints with his selections.
Drafted 80th overall in the third round of this year’s NFL draft, Dulcich makes the offensive All-Rookie Team.
“The Broncos have a talented collection of wide receivers for quarterback Russell Wilson to find downfield in Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick and Jerry Jeudy,” Reuter wrote on NFL.com. “However, Dulcich has a chance to see a lot of snaps as either a starter or the running mate of Albert Okwuegbunam at tight end. The former Bruins star could become a safety valve and red-zone threat for Wilson.”
The Broncos love doesn’t stop there. Washington, meanwhile, makes the specialist All-Rookie Team as well. Drafted 162nd overall in the fifth round, Reuter sees Washington’s potential.
“The Broncos averaged just 16.2 yards per kickoff return (last in the NFL) and 8.2 yards per punt return (19th) in 2021. Washington’s ability to attack coverage units after fielding a kickoff (returned one for touchdown at Samford last year) or punt (four returned for TD in his career with the Bulldogs) will bring the excitement that Denver’s special teams units have sorely lacked,” Reuter wrote. “He also scored six times as a runner and nine times as a receiver in 2021.”
Time will be our judge, Mr. Reuter. For now, Broncos Country appreciates the love. We’re now less than a month away from the start of training camp. Let’s ride.
