The Denver Broncos really went for it on the offensive side over the offseason and this gives them a depth chart that they should be satisfied with. The receiving core is going to be made up of Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, and KJ Hamler. Despite having two rookies, this group is looking very promising. Especially when you factor in Noah Fant coming into year two as the starting quarterback. The running back committee got a bit deeper, although Royce Freeman doesn’t project to have much time on the field with Melvin Gordon signing over the offseason. Gordon and Lindsay go down as the one-two running backs.
