Future Watch: KJ Hamler Football Cards, Denver Broncos – KJ Hamler was drafted by the Denver Broncos with the 46th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The 5-9 receiver can handle himself on the gridiron.
Hamler was a two-year letterman at St. Mary’s Preparatory School in Orchard Lake Michigan, running track as well as playing football. He then moved to Bradenton, Florida to play for the IMG Academy in his senior year in high school, but unfortunately tore his ACL before he could play in his first game.
Because of the ACL injury the season before, Hamler redshirted as a true freshman at Penn State University in 2017. In 2018, he played in 13 games catching 42 passes for 754 yards and five touchdowns with a long of 93 yards in his redshirt freshman season, the second-longest in the history of the program. His rushing statistics were solid, gaining 44 yards on four carries with a touchdown. His kick returning was on full display, ranked third in the Big 10 and 18th in the nation with a 26.2 average and was named a Freshman All-American as a kick returner by the Football Writers Association of America.
In 2019, he played in all 13 games again, catching 56 balls for 904 yards with eight touchdowns in his redshirt sophomore season. He was named to the Second Team All-Big Ten by the coaches and media on offense.
Hamler decided to forego his final two seasons at Penn State to enter the NFL Draft. At the NFL Combine, Hamler didn’t run in the 40-yard dash. He had a hamstring tweak, but he had run a 4.27 in pre-combine testing. He did 15 reps on the weight bench showing off his strength.
Here’s a look at Hamler’s speed:
Hamler is back on track now, and after four games, he has eight catches for 102 yards and a 12.8 yards per-catch average. He has three rushes for 17 yards as well. Collect this burner.
