2017 NFL Draft: Isaiah McKenzie highlights

New, comments

The Denver Broncos clearly want some big play ability on offense and special teams as they select another speedy, big play wide receiver.

According to Denver Broncos wide receiver coach Tyke Tolbert, Carlos Henderson will be the kick return man, while Isaiah McKenzie will field punts. Both rookies have a college career filled with huge kick return plays.

McKenzie is a smaller guy, which means he can “hide” behind blockers and explode through the punt return lanes for some big plays on special teams. He finished his college career averaging a punt return for a touchdown once every ten times he fielded a punt.

John Elway is totally focused on bringing explosive offense and special teams back to the Mile High City. This is going to be great!
