Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs is one of the top wide outs in the National Football League. Since becoming a fifth round pick out of the University of Maryland in 2015, Diggs has been a dominant force in the league.
Diggs also knows what a great wide receiver is supposed to look like while playing the game a high level. The All-Pro wideout, who started his career with the Minnesota Vikings, says he sees potential greatness the Denver Broncos receivers.
The Broncos receiving core is led by young receivers Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler and Tim Patrick. They also have an outstanding receiving tight end in Noah Fant. The oldest among that crew is Patrick, who is still only 27-years-old.
Patrick, Jeudy and Hamler have make an exciting, young core for the Broncos and their quarterback Drew Lock. On the season, the trio has accounted for 1,565 receiving yards and have also hauled in 11 touchdown receptions. Fant has also been a major factor in the passing game with 44 receptions for 492 yards and two touchdowns.
The Bronco receivers are thriving, even without their top weapon, Courtland Sutton, who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the season. Sutton tore his ACL and MCL playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the team’s opening game.
Diggs says he believes the Denver Broncos, lead by their impressive receivers, have bright days ahead of them.
“I don’t want to reach when I say this but they (Jeudy and Hamler) will be a damn good duo,” he says. “Courtland Sutton, he’s been out, but that would make them a three-headed monster. They have another kid, 81 (Patrick), he can ball as well. So they have a nice little receiving corps over there that can get open. They are quick, they are fast and they know how to run routes. I wish them a lot of success, I like their game.”
The Broncos are 5-8 on the season and will take on the Diggs and the Bills this Sunday. The Bills are coming with a 10-3 record and look like they will be a tough during the NFL playoffs.
