    OFFENSE

    [​IMG]


    Not much has changed for this Bronco offense. The team has focused on developing and keeping their talent in place including managing the cap in order to resign their top talent. QB Brock Osweiler has led his team to the playoffs in his first 2 seasons as a starter. Safe to say expectations are high this year for him, but he has the weapons to make it happen. It certainly helps to have the Thomas and Thomas tandem (Julius & Demaryus) at your disposal. Orange Julius has developed into one of the premier TE’s in the league and Demaryus is just an athletic beast. RB’s haven’t changed since last season when the team let both Legarette Blount and Knowshon Moreno walk. This showed the team’s confidence in their 2 young RB’s (Hillman & Ball) and adding veteran RB Ahmad Bradshaw doesn’t hurt either. It helps to have a solid OLine and this group makes the position players look good. Surprisingly no one on the Denver OLine has made the probowl in the last 2 seasons. Maybe this season we’ll finally see one or two in there. Two favorites to make it are Tackles Ryan Clady and Orlando Franklin.

    DEFENSE



    The only changes made on this team were on the defensive side. The key addition was the drafting of OLB Montrae Sibert. Sibert was predicted to go in the top 10 of the 2015 draft, but to the Broncos surprise he fell to them at the 29th pick. The team loves his skill set and was so impressed with what they saw from him in training camp that he will begin his rookie season as a starter. OLB Wesley Woodyard transitioned to the MLB spot and the team welcomed back long time Bronco D.J. Williams to add depth. No real changes on the DLine. Big Terrance Knighton anchors the middle while speedsters Dunlap and Asante will look to give opposing QB’s fits this year. They will surely be helped by Denver’s returning secondary led by safeties Raheem Morris and Duke Ihenacho in addition to CB Dominique Rogers Cromartie.

    Special Teams


    Veterans K Matt Prater and P Britton Colquitt return to give the team solid play in the kicking and field position game.

    Ahmad Bradshaw will be the primary KR while Golden Tate will handle PR duties.


    Outlook

    On paper, this Broncos team once again looks like a playoff contender. Their last 2 playoff runs ended with disappointing eliminations. Will this be the year they get over the hump and make the big dance? Only time will tell. They will have to overcome some great AFC teams to do so.​
