WR - DEN
Second-round draft pick out of Penn State WR KJ Hamler has signed his four-year rookie contract with the Denver Broncos.
A two-year starter for the Nittany Lions, Hamler compiled 1,571 yards and 13 TDs on 95 catches. The speedster should get some opportunities this season to operate out of the slot for the Broncos. While he may not produce gaudy numbers out of the gates this season, Hamler has the potential to break one loose every time he touches the football.
The Denver Broncos have selected wide receiver KJ Hamler with the No. 46 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Hamler is a vertical slot threat out of Penn State who some analysts compare to T.Y. Hilton. He has track-like speed but also a history of drops. Likely a complementary player, Hamler will join Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy as receivers in Denver. Additionally, many are expecting a second-year leap from tight end Noah Fant. The arrow is pointing up on this Drew Lock led offense.
According to Trevor Sikkema of The Draft Network, KJ Hamler out of Penn State tweaked his hamstring during training and will not be participating in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.
Sikkema notes that Hamler reached 4.27 before getting hurt, which is absolutely flying. Hamler's going under the radar for fantasy football when he shouldn't be. Running a time like that on a national stage like the Combine would've brought him into the spotlight, but he remains one of the biggest steals in rookie ADP currently.
At the measurements portion of The 2020 NFL Combine, KJ Hamler weighed in at 178 pounds.
Hamler was listed by Penn State at 165, so him showing up at 178 is a good sign. The NFL is moving further and further away from needing to be a stout WR that can take a beating, which is good news for players of Hamler's stature. Hamler's explosive, shifty, and quick as a cat. Knowing that he has the size to play (and stay) in today's NFL is outstanding for his fantasy future.
