    He is such an electric player and everything he does brings a level of excitement. He is going to get the Devin Hester treatment from our fan base in no time.

    I know people have concerns about his drop percentage, but as a PSU fan it truly never felt like an issue. Maybe in the same sense that Bears fans have only a faint recollection of Hesters 30 fumbles. Hamler had a couple of ugly ones and they have been replayed to death, but many times he got his hands on balls that looked nowhere near him. He is hard to over-throw and I remember far more times wondering what Clifford was thinking.

    I'm excited we got him and I think he landed in one of the best situations he could have. Some players just bring a level of excitement that can't be measured. It's not just speed, it's the moves at top speed that make him so dangerous. Im excited to see what he does now that defenses can't afford to overplay him so much.
    Welcome to Denver KJ!
    I think it is his agility combined with his acceleration. He gets up to top speed really quickly

    Yep, my main critique about him. I hope he can break the trend of "body catchers" not improving much in the NFL cause his other tangibles are pretty insane.

    We needed a speed guy to round out our WR corps. This is going to free up all our other receivers.

    Look how scary this offense has become over the course of 2 days:

    1. The big physical specimen with hands that can outmuscle any CB one on one - Sutton
    2. The ankle breaking route runner who could be an elite possession receiver with speed - Jeudy
    3. The speed burner who will force D's to add a safety over the top on him - KJ Hamler
    4. A huge specimen with speed and major mismatch to nfl linebackers - Noah Fant
    5. One of the best receiving Rb's in the game - Melvin Gordon
    6. Great depth for blocking packages or injury in Patrick and Hamilton

    But my man said it best about KJ Hamler " He's allergic to DB's, he can't get infected". Check out this video, you will surely be entertained

    Here is a great article on Elway personally timing KJ Hamler's 100 yd td return off of video.

    On paper it looks like an entirely different situation this year. . Center of the line looks solid with Risner, Cush, Glasgow. James being healthy and ready will be huge. And Boles is Boles , the good and the bad. He improved tremendously the past 7 games. Coaches may be expecting more of that then the first 9 games.

    Overall a much different looking group and IMO expected results. And with all the offensive weapons the defenses are less likely to be loading the box or committing extra pass rushers. With the overall improvement to the line, Bolles wont be on an island as much . He can be helped out by play calling, chips, double teams, plays away or directly at his defender depending on the advantages .

    Injuries had the oline with holes in several places and defenses exploited it. Offenses can hide a weak link, they cant hide several. If all goes to plan this season the offense will be able to influence the defenses more then we have seen in several years. IMO the OTs will be immensely helped by the threat of what the Broncos are capable of doing now. The only group that may have benefited more then the OTs is the RBs. Both Gordon and Lindsey will get opportunities with the lanes that should be created with the expected coverages to slow down the Broncos receiving game.

    Looks good on paper, now they have to do it in games. They figure it out and this could be a really dynamic offense. Especially after a season or two of development. I'm excited about the possibilities.
    11 personnel with Sutton, Fant, Jeudy, Hamler and Gordon/Lindsay, I doubt there will be more than six in the box. With that personnel package, it might be five in the box. Spread formations with that personnel package will open up the rushing attack, too.

    I wanted a WR in round 1 and 2. I wanted Mims at the pick, was shocked it was Hamler. The more I learn about him, it was the absolute right pick. John Elway has turned this offense inside out in just 2 years!

    It will open the run game, no more 8 in the box. We will have potential to score at anytime, from any place. Down 14 points? Possible to come right back with all these weapons.

    This will make our OL look better as well. Nobody will be doubling Sutton anymore, he will explode. Lock will have 4000-5000 yards this year!!

    I’m excited about him. Our offense should be pretty explosive, I’m just concerned about whether Lock will have time to spread the ball around. OT is still a huge concern.

    I agree. My reference was watching Tyreek his first couple of seasons, and his hands were bad on the deep ball. He still is not great, but much improved. I see KJ a lot more advanced than Tyreek was catching the ball out of college. Desean Jackson might be a stretch as his hands were amazing, but I do see flashes. The good thing is with our other weapons we don't need him to be fully polished.
