Came up with this list after spinning around ideas with a couple people all day, they're really are some intriguing things to watch for this year. Obviously Tebow's going to be the easy choice - but I think you can make a case that the highest draft pick in team history should cause equal excitement. Miller was coined as an early-impact player at a major position of value so it'll be interesting to see how effective he can be a rookie. I'm trying to temper my expectations as the last rookie I was this excited so see was Moreno who obviously dissapointed. With that, he is the #2 pick and I don't think its wrong for any of us to demand big-time impact from that selection especially considering what Suh did last year. Speaking of Moreno, Elway said recently they're hoping he has a breakout year and I am intrigued to see him as its his make-or-break year as far as I'm concerned. Is he just a 3rd down back or has he truly been hampered by injuries and a bad OL and will now show why he was highly touted coming out of school? I'd put Royal in that same group with Moreno, was he just a bad fit in McDs offense or was his rookie year just a fluke? I've long thought Ayers got a bad rap as he was playing out of position and was even coming on last year until he broke his foot, he really could be a monster 4-3 DE I think. There's tons of things to get excited about and hopefully once this lockout is over we'll get a chance to enjoy all of them.

All intriguing options, good poll OP. Had to go w/ the 1st choice, but I'm interested to see how Von Doom works.

Tebow then Fox's D then Von Doom
Royal is interesting because in '08 and '09 he had some very exciting and long plays. Over 71+ about 6-8 times.
Not really interested in Knowshown as most ppl think his injuries are a fluky thing whwn in fact I think just the opposite everyone in the NFL is injured by the mid way point. The real men play through injury and succeed

Not to be nitpicky, but he's only gone 71+ yards total in 11 games, so I think you might be a little off on the 71+ yard plays.

I went with Miller´s impact since I think he really has the starting job locked up already. If Miller becomes the impact player he figures to be, especially as a pass rusher, combined with Dumervil, they could have a dynamic pass rush and that alone, would improve the defense significantly.

Great list. I think Tebow's obviously the most attractive and important option, but it really is a very comprehensive list.

In fact, I'd say the only things I'm excited about but aren't on there are:

FO:
1. Who do we add via FA/Trade?
2. Where do we dump Orton off to?

Team:
3. Which G/T wins the RT position?
4. Can McBath stay healthy?

Coaching:
5. Schemes

There really is a lot to be excited about and interested in.

Our O-line is actually the area I'm hoping for the most improvement and the keenest to hear updates on.

I've given up on Moreno and still holding out hope for Royal

I am psyched to see all of these things. As an eternal optimist, I see a lot of potential for some fun Bronco football.

I really want to see Ayers and Moreno put in better systems for their talents.

I am giddy at the prospect of Miller and Doom rushing simultaneously.

Just from looking at the way the draft went it looks like it should be a opportunistic defense which I've missed....okay I missed defense in general.

There is some talent on the oline, I really want to see how they look with a real oline coach.

I hope Vaughn gets more looks as a kick returner, he was electric at the end of the season.

The improvement of the second year players.

Seeing if Walton and Beadles can improve with a years worth of experience and hoping Decker can be the breakout reciever everyone thinks he can be.

I won't argue with positive spirit, I do it myself. I apologize for letting my statistical OCD get the better of me.

I choose Tebow! If i had a 2nd choice it'd have been Doom. No telling if he'll return to form. The big sack numbers he put up were in the 3-4. Will those numbers translate going back to the 4-3/coming off of injury? Time will tell.

It's all about V.Miller if he becomes a elite Line Backer in this league the broncos will be in the top five in defense for years.

Voted A..... because of the way it was worded and no 'other' option.

Not because of Tebow, but because I don't think he can take it from Orton unless Denver is mathematically eliminated from the playoffs or Orton gets traded.

This whole lockout thing just sucks so bad. I desperately wanted Orton traded pre-draft but now that that has passed Fox just needs to roll with KO for the most part & use Teebz as a change of pace.

Went with the Tebow option (where was the multiple options Baja?) but one you forgot was "Not seeing Josh **** up another season" option. Glad I jumped off that bandwagon months before it crashed in December.
