  • Pre-Draft NFL Roster Rankings

    2. Denver Broncos

    Offensive Overview: Denver returns eight starters from an offense that led the NFL in per-game points (37.9), yards (457.3), and plays (72.3). LG Zane Beadles and tailback Knowshon Moreno are easy to replace, though No. 2 wideout Eric Decker's red-zone efficiency will be missed. From a fantasy perspective, it could force more scoring onto the Thomases' plate. As Manning will be 38 1/2 years old when the season starts, the Broncos plan to lean more on the run with Ball as a candidate to approach 300 carries. Sanders is an excellent crossing-route runner, a staple in OC Adam Gase's attack. The O-Line figures to be better than last year, when Clady missed all but two games with a Lisfranc fracture. Clark was stretched at times at left tackle, and should be more comfortable on the right side. Peyton is likely to experience natural regression off his 2013 stats, but this should remain the NFL's best offense for one more year.

    Defensive Overview: Jack Del Rio's defense will receive major talent injections at all three levels this season, with Miller due back healthy, fellow edge-bender Ware signed to book end him in sub-packages, and 2013 Pro Bowlers Talib and Ward added in the back end. Expect GM John Elway to use an early-round pick at middle linebacker, upgrading on Irving. In terms of depth and talent, the Broncos can rival Seattle for the NFL's most fearsome front seven. Beyond the starters listed here, Denver has beastly third-year pro Malik Jackson, trusty utilitymen Mitch Unrein and Kevin Vickerson, and sophomore sleeper Quanterus Smith, who "redshirted" his rookie season.

      You have Quant Smith starting? Otherwise, agree with your point.

          It feels like June, doesn't it? I'm hoping the back end of the draft will feel shorter.

            Sub Wolfe for Smith and you get a similar upgrade.

              Pretty sure he's just talking players returning from injury and players added from FA.

              Along with a few picks in there too.

                Pretty crazy to think they got as far as they did despite having a patchwork defense.

                Good writeup though.

                I think we'll miss Decker more than some think, and more worried with RB depth over Ball.

                Beadles wont be missed much other than pulling and in space, screens, etc.

                  Yep. People forget we had a top 3 defense 2 years ago. Until the Ravens playoff game anyway, which probably still stings worse than the SB loss IMO...

                    I forgot Wolfe too!

                    And yeah I edited, to include "rotating".

                    Just insane that a SB team is going to roll out next year with such a massive difference on the defensive end of the ball.

                          Even if Hillman bursts onto the scene and becomes a big factor I still want a top 4-5 round RB draftee.

                            You forgot perhaps the most important one too, Clady.
