The Broncos are checking out wide receivers at the Senior Bowl

BY foxsports • January 27, 2016

Broncos fans aren't the only ones dissatisfied with their team's penchant for dropped passes.

Denver's front office is, too. And the team isn't shy about adding college receiving talent via the 2016 NFL Draft.

According to WalterFootball, the team has already met with two Senior Bowl wideouts -- Oklahoma's Sterling Shepard and Georgia's Malcolm Mitchell. Both could add some sure-handed depth to the receiving corps in 2016.

Shepard is a particularly interesting prospect. He's short, but shifty in the slot and possesses big-play ability (15 yards per catch average in college). The Sooners product would make a fine replacement for Emmanuel Sanders, who's a free agent in 2017.

Mitchell (6-foot-1, 195 pounds) is a larger target who tore his ACL in 2013 and never realized his tremendous potential in Athens. He'd make a more traditional, outside Broncos receiver.
