Kubiak is from that tree. Very much so.

His first year in Denver, Anthony Miller was the #1 receiver with over 1000 yards and Shannon Sharpe was #2 with almost 800 yards. All of their main receivers had experience although they had an UDFA buried on the bench who would grow into the greatest WR in Broncos History, Rod Smith.

Second year, same basic deal except that Shannon Sharpe moved up to #1.

And after that, it was all Rod Smith, Ed McCaffery, and Shannon Sharpe in some statistical domination.

The most productive rookie was Ashley LeLie who went 35/525.

BUT. If Hopkins is The Guy we hope he is, watch out. This offense absolutely rocks when there are two wideouts who are productive. At least, the Denver one did.
