Denver Broncos Depth Chart 2019 Broncos Depth Chart

0-2, 4th AFC West

at GB

5:00 pm GMT, 9/22

Going just a measly 6-10 last year, the Broncos finished third in the AFC West. The Broncos are in the midst of a rebuild, so this sort of record is to be expected, although it's never fun to finish that poorly. As the older players from the Broncos continue to leave the team in droves, we are starting to see the youth of the team step forward. Nothing too big is expected from the Broncos this year, which is why it seems so strange that they went out and got a veteran QB in Joe Flacco. That being said, let's look at some top questions concerning the depth chart this year.

Preseason Analysis: Broncos Looking to Get Back on Track

What does depth at the WR position look like for Denver?

As of now, Emmanuel Sanders and Courtand Sutton are set to line up on the edges as DaeSean Hamilton takes the slot. Sanders has proven to be a very solid receiver in the past, but he's coming off an Achilles injury which is traditionally a pretty detrimental one to athletes across the board. With Demaryius Thomas in New England, Courtland Sutton is asked to step up again this year. He was a second round pick in the 2018 draft and posted 704 yards on 42 receptions last season. Behind those three are Tim Patrick, and rookie Juwann Winfree on the outsides and River Cracraft in the slot. The Broncos had better hope they get good production from their first line of wideouts this year, as the depth behind them isn't very strong.

If Flacco were for some reason to go down with an injury during the season, who do the Broncos have behind him to play QB?

As of August 5th, 2019, behind Flacco is as follows: Kevin Hogan, Drew Lock, and Brett Rypien. Hogan would be the most likely to take over in the event of Flacco going down. In his three year NFL career, Hogan has played in 8 games, starting just one. Through those 8 appearances, he has 60 completions on 101 attempts. He spent 2016 and 2017 with the Browns, and 2018 with the Broncos where he didn't see the field at all. The Broncos drafted Drew Lock out of Missouri this past year in the second round with the 42nd pick. In his first game playing in pre-season, he threw for 180 yards with 1 TD with a completion percentage of 60.7 through 28 attempts. He finished the game with a QBR of 76,5 and threw one interception.

What does CB depth look like for Denver this year?

Amidst the rebuild, the Broncos defense has still stayed pretty strong. If they're able to make it through to the other side with a still solid D, they'll be in solid shape. The current starters at CB are Kareem Jackson and Chris Harris who are both widely respected as solid corners. They're not the problem, but the depth behind them is where one arises./ Isaac Yiadom and Brendan Langley are the next line, who both haven't shown too much oomf on the field. In the last 5 games of the season, Langley put up a total of just 3 tackles. That being said, he has potential to vastly improve this year as this is the second year of his transition from WR to CB. He spent his first two years with the Broncos as a wideout until they noticed he might be better suited on the defensive side of things.
