Devontae Booker (Denver Broncos)

Devontae Booker showed promise in his first season with the Broncos rushing for over 600 yards and entering the end zone on four occasions. Ever since the third year back out of Utah has been on the decline. Last year he lost almost 100 touches and came in a tick under 300 rushing yards and was utilized more for his receiving abilities, though that was fairly minimal.

This season the Broncos are rolling with a dynamic duo of rookies and Booker is the odd man out. He’s down to third string and has not reached the century mark in rushing yards through six games. It’s fair to say, Booker’s time in Denver is limited.

Like Prosise, Booker could be a player who has his career revitalized in Philadelphia, the land of opportunity. He showcased a solid rushing ability in his rookie season, and both of his first two seasons ended with at least 30 receptions.

Though I don’t believe he will be able to come in and take a lead role or even the secondary back, Booker would be a solid third back to pull out of Doug’s back pocket to open up the passing game.
