Coming out of college, the story on Bellamy was that he has the jets to house the ball for big plays at any time. He’s a speedy guy that the Broncos invested in and even got to see action in 5 games in his rookie season.
That explosive play capability is just potential from what we’ve seen so far. He ran for an abysmal 2.8 ypc on a handful of carries in a handful of games. He had a chance at making some noise, and all we heard got from him was a whisper.
He didn’t really carve out a special teams role and didn’t show enough to get a 3rd down weapon niche roll to fill either.
Pat Shurmer isn’t exactly known for really spicing up a game plan with speedy 3rd down backs. Add to that the signing of Javonte Williams along with adding free agent Mike Boone, there doesn’t appear to me to be a spot for him on the roster.
But he’s got a chance to show up in training camp and wow the coaches. I’d love to see him take the leap and make the coaches have to find a role for him.
