McKenzie came to the Broncos as one of the most prolific punt returners in SEC history, leading him to being a fifth-round pick. He ended 2017 with more muffed punts (six) than offensive touches (five). He also cost the Broncos points in Week 16 by failing to get out of bounds with the clock ticking before the half. McKenzie has reportedly taken positive steps to start team activities, but he may be battling with Jordan Taylor and fellow 2017 pick Carlos Henderson for one or two roster spots. If a steadier option emerges at returner, that'll place pressure on McKenzie to take several steps forward as a receiver in order to make the team.

  2. Isaiah McKenzie 2017 Preseason Outlook
    McKenzie was the SEC's top punt returner in 2016, with 244 yards on 20 returns. Throughout his three seasons with the Georgia Bulldogs, he returned five punts and one kick for scores. Drafted with the Broncos' second pick of the fifth round, the 5-7 McKenzie figures to instantly contribute as a return specialist. Nicknamed the "Human Joystick," McKenzie had the second fastest three-cone drill among receivers at the combine at 6.64 seconds and also ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash. Don't sleep on him as a receiver just because of his size, however. After playing primarily special teams for two years, McKenzie caught 44 passes and seven scores in 2016 and also rushed for four touchdowns in his collegiate career. Despite his short stature, McKenzie was not limited to screens and sweeps. He was tough over the middle on quick slants and high-pointed the ball numerous times on deep tosses and back-shoulder throws. His return ability will get him on the roster, but don't be surprised if Denver gets creative in searching to find ways to get the ball into his hands on offense.
