  • Langley to WR

    Anyone think the move from CB to WR will be a good move?? He used to play WR but he admitted he doesn't like moving backwards regarding the move

    Are they really talking about switching potions for Langley? If so you can now add him to the Bust category.

      The Broncos selected Brendan Langley in the third round of the 2017 draft because they liked the way he played cornerback while in college at Lamar, but his chances of sticking with the team will come down to how well he plays a different position.

      Langley played 11 games as a rookie, but failed to make the team out of training camp last year and landed on the practice squad. He stayed there even though injuries had the Broncos grabbing any cornerback they could find and finally got on the field for five game in the late part of the season.


      In between, Langley did scout team work as a wide receiver and that went well enough that he’s trying to make a full-time position switch. He said he spoke to General Manager John Elway about the move and Elway signed off on it.

      “Mr. Elway and I had a conversation about it at the exit meetings,’’ Langley said, via KUSA. “I asked him about the idea and his response to me was, “I was going to ask you the same thing. You’ve been great on scout team, let’s see what you can do.’’’

      Langley played receiver in high school and saw occasional snaps there in college, but that’s a big difference from doing it in the NFL. Given how little traction he gained at corner, though, the position switch may be his best shot at a lasting professional career

          Another brilliant Elway middle round pick. Langley is still one of the worst cornerbacks I have ever seen lace em up, he can't be any worse at receiver surely ? He won't make the team unless we once again can't find someone to be a consistent special team returner, and he might luck into a job again. I don't see anyway he makes it out of camp.

            Ain't no difference in blowing coverage and letting a team score or allowing a defender to intercept and score with a pic6.... Might as well give him a shot....

              Ben Garland (Air Force) made the move from Defensive Line to Offensive Line. And I believe he still plays for Atlanta. So, the odds are against Langley, but why not give it a try.

                  I'm not really sure of the downside for this? He wasn't going to make the team as a DB (was already released last year) so it's a good move. Gives him a chance to salvage an NFL career and gives the Broncos a chance to salvage a draft pick. If it doesn't work then they're in the exact same situation they were in before.

                    We'll see how this ends up, but my bet is that he isn't going to make the roster. He'll probably end up as the 6th string WR that will be a pre-season cut

                      Wide receiver who has played cornerback, I like it. We could use the competition at receiver to. I hope it works out well for all of us.

                          Throw him on the long list of bungled drafts. From the 2011-2015 drafts, only Von Miller and Derek Wolfe are still on the team to make it to a second contract. Last season I wanted Elway to get Anthony Averett, but he drafted Yiadom instead, who is a shaky prospect at best. Either way, he will literally have to draft consistently well for the next three years straight or he'll be out of here.
