What does Jonah Elliss bring to Sean Payton's Denver Broncos?

The Denver Broncos have another young pass rusher.

Elliss, 21, was the 76th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. He’s an edge rusher out of Utah, where he started each of the past two seasons. He ranked seventh in the nation with 12 sacks in 2023, despite missing the final three games of the year with a partially-torn labrum. He earned consensus All-America honor.

Elliss comes from a football family. His father, Luther, was a 10-year NFL veteran who played his final season withe the Broncos in 20024. He returned to be the team’s chaplain, holding that role for Denver’s Super Bowl 50 run.

Jonah’s brother Christian is a Patriot. His brother Kaden is a Falcon. His brother Noah was an Eagle for the past two years, but is currently a free agent.

Jonah is the best prospect of the bunch, which is how he earned a spot in the top 100 picks of the draft.

I cut up 21 plays to break down what Jonah will bring Denver. Half are from his game against UCLA, which was the best of his collegiate career. The other half are against Washington… which didn’t go so well.

Let’s dig in…
