Depth is real weak at TE and WR.

Where's Tebow?

I thought Seth Olsen was moving to Center?

By the looks of the depth chart, the Broncos really need to focus on drafting offensive talent, particularly at the C/G and WR positions.

I gotta admit, that defensive roster doesn't make me want to puke quite as much as it used to. Just imagine if we drafted some actual NFL starter-quality guys to the front seven.

Aside from OT there is not a single position on that offense that is satisfactory.

No I would prefer something like this:

WR: Andre Johnson
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
RT: Jake Long
RG: Chris Snee
C: Alex Mack
LG: Steve Hutchinson
LT: Ryan Clady

My God, that line up is depressing.

Eddie Royal is the only one left at a skill position that has... you know... skill.

And I'd argue our depth at OT is garbage. Although, I do think the RB position is pretty solid with Moreno and Buck.

Looks like the left tackle pass is going to be a big part of the Broncos offense this season.

Wow. The offense isn't exactly a matchup nightmare for any team. Need to get some speed!

I just pray that we get the Jamal Williams of 2008.

I also think Bannan will be a tremendous addition (especially if the first statement about Williams is true).


We just need help on the O-line

Sure, but compared to any other position at least the starters are very good at OT and we do have people with NFL experience at backup. Buck is a 10 game a year guy at most, Moreno may be the next big thing if he is then RB looks decent although a third guy would still be needed.

The DL is the best it has been this side of Trevor Pryce, Reggie Hayward and Berry, LB needs upgraded some and CB depth is questionable but the defense is miles ahead of where it was 2 years ago.

Yeah but our offense is miles behind what it was 2 years ago. We need an inside backer along with G/C and WR! Our team really isnt that talented now.

Agreed.

I'm worried the offense will hang it out to dry for long stretches again this season.

They better concentrate on getting ahead because if they fall behind by a decent amount, it's curtains.

I'm really curious to see what Baker, Pedescleaux, and Branson can do this year. They were all pretty highly touted UDFAs...surely one or two of them will have developed this year.

I look at that and I think it's painfully obvious that they need to draft:

WR
OG/C
ILB

I don't care what order--get the best guy available with each of the picks. But if they can get those done well with the first three picks, the roster is rounding into shape. (except for QB, of course)
