The Denver Broncos are coming off a disappointing 2019 NFL season. Fortunately, it appears they will be represented in the Pro Bowl on both sides of the ball with Courtland Sutton being one of their representatives.

The NFL announced that Sutton will set to replace Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in this year's Pro Bowl.

It's safe to call Sutton's 2019 campaign a breakout season finishing with 72 receptions for 1,112 yards and 6 touchdowns. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact he was able to put up strong numbers while the offense struggled to find a solution under center for the bulk of the season. Regardless, this clearly did not stop him from initially being voted as a Pro Bowl alternate for his efforts.

Sutton will certainly have some big shoes to fill with Hopkins opting to skip this year's festivities while he recovers from the grind of another successful season. He has managed to exceed expectations before entering the league as a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. It is safe to say that he has already started to provide the Broncos with plenty of bang for their buck as a bonafide No. 1 option in the passing game.

The emergence of Courtland Sutton was likely the reason general manager John Elway felt he could trade wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders at the deadline. The move was indicative of the team's confidence in his ability and it seems to have worked out thus far since he will now be joining outside linebacker Von Miller for his first career trip to the Pro Bowl.
