Players the Denver Broncos can trade for draft picks
KJ Hamler, WR
KJ Hamler was drafted in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and has simply refused to stay healthy. He’s played in just 10 games in the past two seasons and has caught 12 passes during that time.
It’s safe to say that Hamler has not worked out so far in the NFL and was a giant miss by John Elway and the Broncos. However, KJ Hamler brings something to the table that only a handful of others can, and that’s his 4.2 speed.
There has to be a wide receiver-needy team out there (hello, Chicago) that could be willing to send over one of their sixth or seventh round picks to the Denver Broncos for Hamler.
Perhaps the kid just needs a fresh start somewhere. He’s got one more year left on his rookie deal, and I do not anticipate Denver having him in their plans for 2023. If they are able to get any sort of draft compensation for him, they should take that deal.
When healthy and on the field, Hamler’s presence does open up the offense quite and bit, and he has had several plays where he’s simply taken the top off of opposing defenses.
