On this countdown, we continue with Emmanuel Mudiay and his Denver Broncos equivalent.

Emmanuel Mudiay has been a very controversial player for the Denver Nuggets. Not in the way where he is a distraction off the court, but he has had a difficult time living up to his potential in his young career.

He looks as if he is going to be coming off the bench this coming season as it seems Jamal Murray has won the starting point guard spot and his future is once again very cloudy with the Nuggets organization.

However, there is a certain player from the Denver Broncos he would equal when using comparisons between the two Denver franchises. This player would be linebacker Todd Davis. Todd Davis is not a household name, but he has had big shoes to fill ever since the departure of Danny Trevathan after Super Bowl 50.

Davis has had his share of ups and downs with the Broncos as he has had solid hits and tackles particularly on third and short situations. However, he has also struggled mightily in other aspects. Davis has been known to be burned in coverage by athletic half back and tight ends such as when he is matched up with guys like Antonio Gates or Devontae Freeman.

Davis has had a hard time making a name for himself and it is unclear whether he has a long term future with the Broncos. Much like Emmanuel Mudiay with the Denver Nuggets. However, this is not to say they can’t turn it around.

Every fan wants these players to succeed and they have the potential to do great things in their career.
