Denver Broncos select Carlos Henderson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft

The Denver Broncos have selected Carlos Henderson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

In the third round, pick 82, of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos have selected wide receiver, Carlos Henderson

Henderson is a 5'11, 199lb receiver who is built like a running back and plays like a running back. He will help out the Broncos at receiver as well as in the return game. He also ran a 4.46 40-time during March's NFL Scouting Combine, so he has the "juice" that coach Vance Joseph was looking for.

I expect Henderson to step in and play inside and outside for the Broncos and give them another homerun threat, much like Emmanuel Sanders.

This is a great pick for the Denver Broncos.
