Poll coming. Not necessarily who will make the most impact. But who are you looking forward to the most?

I believe this is a massive fail post from my phone. Von, clady, Vick, Harris and other were the options I intended. That's a lot of talent.

Clady improves 3 spots at the OL. That's a really big deal for the team we have. Von Miller is a once in a generation player. We managed to shut down the run with back-ups with Vick out, so it helps, but not really as much. I absolutely love Harris. He gives it all on every play and has talent to back it up.

Is the majority right? 3 of the 5 OL positions do get upgraded with Clady.

Hands down Miller. Clady is a stud but Miller, when healthy and in the right mind, can absolutely wreak havoc on an offense.

I'm just glad they're both on our team and will be coming back fully healthy and ready to lead us to a Superbowl victory this year.

Clady's one of my favorite players on the team.

But the OL managed the do OK without Clady, minus the SB.

But Miller, him and Ware off the edge has the potential to absolutely destroy other teams offenses. A healthy, motivated Miller is a top-3 defensive player in the league.

Throw in TK, Sly, Wolfe, Jackson, Q plus others, and it's scary to think of what this front can do.

I am curious what Quentin Carter coming back with. He was outplaying the guy we have penciled in as starting next to Ward. This is the first season in awhile I haven't looked at the Safety position and thought, we need to upgrade that position.

As a rookie, yes.

Moore has improved every year since then and was developing into a very good safety last year until his injury.

I wouldn't say Moore was a "very good" safety. He still hasn't show that level. I think he's shown he's "solid", maybe even "good" here and there. But cmon dude, when has Moore shown us he's "very good"? I think that's a reach.

Prior to his injury, he was looking like he was developing into that.

He'll never be an Earl Thomas-type, but he was doing pretty good until getting hurt.

I'm not out to take anything away from Moore nor give him any credit he hasn't earned yet. He absolutely has the physical tools to be an elite safety. Who knows, he one day could be on the level with an Earl Thomas. I'm not going to say he could never be that type of player because I DO think he's improved each year. If he wasn't improving, I would have written him off last year and I think the Broncos would have also. But he's just not an excellent Safety yet. I'm pulling for the guy big time. I fully expect the guy to show even more improvement this year. Hopefully, by end of year we can say he's a "very good" Safety. I'd love to see it happen.

I just don't think he'll progress past a certain point.

That said, he's a very good safety. Not quite Pro Bowler, but good nonetheless.

It's not that I think he's better than Harris. It's that there's a LOT more depth behind Harris.

I'm most looking forward to Miller. I can't wait to see he & Ware coming off the edge on 3rd & long. In terms of play making and explosiveness, Miller is probably the most exciting.

We have some really talented players returning though. The thing with Clady & Harris is that if players at their positions do their jobs well, you rarely hear about them. I'll be glad to have them back though, no doubt.

I would say Moore and Carter. Carter had a very good rookie season, and I'm interested to see how he does after missing 2 years. Moore has improved every year, and I'm curious to see how his injury affects him. Also, they are the only depth at S, so hopefully one of them will likely be the starter. I'm excited to see who takes that role. The rest already have their role, and I expect them all to perform close to, or better than what they were at the time of their injuries. There aren't as many question marks for me.

As far as the injuries go, Von was lucky that it was ACL only, which means more likely a faster recovery with fewer long term side effects, and I think Harris was similar too. Clady has had a lot of time to recover so he should be close to 100 % by the time the season starts.

I'm excited for Wolfe, and he had the weirdest injury of all, but with the depth at the DL (as of right now) it won't be as crucial.

I just hope the injury bug is gone, and they can stay healthy this year (knock on wood), cause this defense can be scary good if things start clicking.
