Denver is in the midst of a rebuild, and don’t have much of a chance competing with Kansas City and Los Angeles in the division. This was an older team, and we are starting to see the youth emerge. The once great receiving core of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders is teetering. Thomas is off in New England, while Sanders is returning from an Achilles injury. This means that Courtland Sutton will take a big step once again in 2019. Behind him and Sanders is where we will see some position battles.

It looks like the Broncos hit on their running backs, drafting Royce Freeman and landing Phillip Lindsay as an un-drafted free agent. The draft added some names on the offensive line, and they landed a top tier tight end in Noah Fant. It also came at no surprise they drafted Drew Lock. Defensively they have a strong core with Chris Harris, Von Miller, and Bradley Chubb. This secondary isn’t quite the same as the last few years, but they are still above average. Kareem Jackson could be a weak spot at left corner, but time will tell.

Preseason Analysis: Broncos Looking to Get Back on Track

Offseason Moves

Through the draft, Denver addressed some key needs. Risner Dalton was a strong pick for the offensive line. Denver needed to add a guard, and with a few picks in the first round they did just that. Tight end has been a wasteland for Denver over the last decade. Iowa had two first round tight ends drafted, and Noah Fant was one of them. This is a tremendous upgrade for Denver, and it will be a help for whoever is under center. A lot of the front seven remains the same in Denver, but the secondary changed. They signed Kareem Jackson, who was a free agent out of Houston. Jackson has had on and off performances over the last season or two. Signing Chris Harris to a long term deal was a smart move by Denver, as he has been one of the best corners since coming into the league.

Position Battles

Denver has quite a few position battles to breakdown. The Broncos traded for Joe Flacco in the offseason, and then went onto draft Drew Lock. Flacco was not happy with this move, and there will be a big battle over camp and preseason. Lock should start some games this season, but we will need to see how many. The situation isn’t great at the moment, unless some young wideouts can emerge. This is where we start to look at the battles within the wide receivers. River Cracraft was a solid wideout at Washington State, and will step into Denver with a chance to earn the WR3 spot on the team. DaeSean Hamilton will be some competition. Denver isn’t too deep with wide receivers, so there shouldn’t be anyone sneaking through to compete with these names. The same goes for Noah Fant. This is his spot, and Jeff Heuerman isn’t going to take anything away. Defensively they are going to be pretty solidified heading into the regular season. At the moment there are not a ton of battles for the defensive side. Dre’Mont Jones will share some time at nose tackle with Shelby Harris, but that is about it. The secondary is going to remain intact, and the signing of Jackson is going to fill a need. This won’t give any of the backup guys a chance to get into a starting role just yet.

Looking Ahead

Denver is still a team in building mode, but we are not quite sure if any of these offensive guys are going to be the answer long term. Lock is going to be a name that has a pretty good leash, and Denver has Flacco to be around him to learn from. That is of course if Flacco is up to it. The weapons around them are not pretty, especially with Sanders coming off of an Achilles injury. Overall the offense isn’t going to be spectacular, but the defense will be able to keep them in games. They have also had a strong record at home. Denver is far below the rest of the division, outside of Oakland, although their recent moves could be impactful.
