In case you missed it, former Penn State wide receiver KJ Hamler was selected in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft by the Broncos with the 46th overall pick.
The speedster from Pontiac, Michigan will add to what is quickly becoming an incredibly young and exciting offense in Denver, joining quarterback Drew Lock, running backs Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay, tight end Noah Fant, and receivers Cortland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and fellow Nittany Lion DaeSean Hamilton.
The COVID-19 pandemic is going to delay the NFL rookie minicamps that were supposed to be in May, meaning that Hamler will have to wait a bit longer to make his on-field debut for his new squad. But the team was kind enough to send him his first Bronco get-up that fulfilled a dream of his to finally see his name on his jersey.
Im just excited to have my last name on the back of a jersey. Ive never had that before.— KJ HAMLER (@Kj_hamler) April 25, 2020
While the 20 on the jersey is likely a reference to Hamler being a pick in the 2020 draft, there is not yet word on what Hamler's actual number will be (dumb NFL regulations on jersey numbers will keep him from donning No. 1 in the pros, though).
