Broncos receiver Courtland Sutton was available to the media during a video meeting on Thursday morning.
The Broncos are in their third week of installing offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur’s plan.
When asked what he knows about the system so far, Sutton said, “He sees the game as receivers see it, which I think is quite rare. We feel we can influence the game in so many different ways – in the passing game (fencing), taking shots across the field and giving Drew the flexibility, if he sees a mismatch, to take advantage of it and not saying, “We’ll come back to the next series.” They give Drew the freedom to do that. That will be something that is huge for us to grow (as) an insult because if we can get into a situation where Drew and the offense get really comfortable with the (playbook) and we know what to do, then it is ( more or less becomes an unmanageable situation.
“Coach Shurmur will call us the best game to be successful. We can do any type of check to get the ball in the right place. ”
The Broncos have recipients Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler lined up in the first two rounds and are expected to be the 2-3 options behind Sutton to start the season.
“I had heard that it was possible that if the men who wanted the Broncos were to take it,” said Sutton. “Jeudy was one of those guys that was talked about a lot and I had seen part of his game since Alabama played a lot of big bowl games – and I liked what I saw.
“I spoke to Coach Z (receiver trainer Zach Azzanni) about him for the design, kind of evaluating what I saw. I like the way he plays and I think he can add value to our room and put a lot more pressure on the defense with his speed and route running ability – it will open up a lot to the guys on the field.
“And KJ, you get someone who is a speedster and I heard a lot about him from (teammate) DaeSean Hamilton and how he was a speedster, a baller, a playmaker. He becomes someone who can also threaten the defense and help everyone on the field. “
