According to USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the Denver Broncos will hold a pre-draft workout with former Duke wide receiver Max McCaffrey. Max is the son of former Denver Broncos great Ed McCaffrey, and the brother to current Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey.

Max McCaffrey is listed at 6'2", 200lbs and played his college ball at Duke University. He played four seasons for the Blue Devils and put up some good numbers while there. During his four-year career, he totaled 117 receptions for 1,341 yards and 12 touchdowns. This past season he totaled 52 receptions for 643 yards and 5 touchdowns.

It appears that McCaffrey may go undrafted during April's NFL Draft, but could be on the Broncos radar as a potential late 7th round pick, or a UDFA option.

Now Max did turn some heads at Duke's Pro Day earlier this month. The receiver ran a 4.36 40 time and had a 36-inch vertical jump. Those type of testing numbers at 6'2" will make some teams consider you as a late round flier.

The Broncos have a lot of youth behind starters Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Former second-round pick Cody Latimer is looking to have a breakout year and Bennie Fowler stepped up at times during the 2015 season. The Broncos also have Jordan Taylor looking to make the team this season. Max could join this group and fight for a roster spot or potentially the Practice Squad.

Watch for the blue #87 make multiple defenders miss on a 48-yard pass play.
