Could DaeSean Hamilton Be Denver’s Future Slot Receiver?

DaeSean Hamilton was drafted 113th overall by the Denver Broncos and was the 14th wide receiver selected in the 2018 NFL Draft. Hamilton was a late riser in the draft process, and finished 12th in the final iteration of the RotoViz Scouting Index. Although the 6-foot-1, 203-pound receiver was among the oldest WRs on draft day, he’s drawn praise for his polished route-running abilities and his character. Given that Hamilton will be 23 when the season starts, it’s fair to ask whether he will mature into a dominant NFL WR. The lack of a breakout season1 adds to the question marks surrounding Hamilton’s NFL viability. The hit rate for top-100 picks who have never broken out is abysmally low, and it comes as no surprise that Hamilton fares poorly in Anthony Amico’s WR prospect model. Additionally, Blair Andrews has warned us about the risks surrounding the fantasy prospects for older WRs. However, before we proclaim that Hamilton won’t be successful in the NFL,  let’s take a deeper look at his prospect profile.
