Denver Broncos Roster 2020 Broncos Roster

7-9, 2nd AFC West

vs OAK

9:25 pm GMT, 12/29

After another disappointing season for the Broncos, the team decided to part ways with their coach Vance Joseph, and then jettison starting quarterback Case Keenum. In the offseason, they made a couple of moves, the most notable of which was the acquisition of quarterback Joe Flacco and the hiring of former Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio as head coach. In the draft, they selected tight end Noah Fant in the first round, before getting guard Dalton Risner and quarterback Drew Lock in the second. The Broncos are in a tough division, but do seem to be planning on making a playoff run. It’s going to be an uphill battle, but answering these questions may help.

Top 3 Broncos Roster Questions of 2019-2020

How Big of an Upgrade is Joe Flacco?

The Broncos made an interesting decision when they decided to trade away Case Keenum to bring in Joe Flacco. Flacco was the long-term starter for the Ravens, before being replaced by Lamar Jackson at midseason last year. Unfortunately for the Broncos, it’s hard to see Flacco providing a major boost to this offense. At 34 years of age, Joe Flacco is likely on the decline anyway, which the stats seem to back up. He hasn’t posted a passer rating over 85 or thrown for 7 or more yards per attempt since the 2014 season. Flacco can still lead a solid offense when surrounded by the right pieces, but the same could’ve been said about Keenum. At this point in his career, Joe Flacco is probably nothing more than an adequate game manager who is as good as his supporting cast.

Will the Broncos Have a Good Enough Interior Pass Rush?

The Broncos are lucky to possess two of the best edge rushers in the league in Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Although the Broncos have been going downhill since the super bowl winning season, Miller hasn’t, as he put up yet another double-digit sack season last year. Chubb meanwhile, is coming off a fantastic rookie season that saw him rack up 12 sacks of his own. Those two will ensure the Broncos pass rush remains solid just by themselves, but depending on how well their teammates can support them, it has a chance to be one of the best in the league. Right now, they have a couple options to choose from, but none of them had over 3 sacks last season. Currently, the two most established options on the roster would be Derek Wolfe and Adam Gotsis, who started 16 and 12 games respectively last year. Some other intriguing players would be Shelby Harris, a former 7th round pick that had 5.5 sacks in 2017, Demarcus Walker, a 2017 second round pick, and Dre’Mont Jones, the rookie from Ohio State the Broncos took in the third round. The Broncos don’t even need an elite interior rusher, they just need someone who can consistently win their one on ones to take the pressure off Chubb and Miller. If they can do that, this Broncos defense has a chance to be special.

Is this Offensive Supporting Cast Good Enough to Support Flacco?

As mentioned before, Joe Flacco is a player that isn’t capable of elevating a team at this point in his career. At the end of the day, it won’t be him who dictates how good the offense will be, but rather the talent around him. So let’s take a look at the Broncos offensive supporting cast. Last year, the supporting cast was unspectacular outside of a couple bright spots. This season, the Broncos seem to be lacking in receiving depth, as only two of their receivers, Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders, are proven. Other receivers like Daesean Hamilton and Tim Patrick showed promise, but not enough to prove they can handle the burden of being a featured receiver for a full season. At running back, the Broncos seem to have a different problem, as it feels like they have too many backs and not enough touches. While rookie sensation Phillip Lindsay will likely lead the way again, guys like Devontae Booker, Theo Riddick, and 2018 first round pick Royce Freeman will all need carries as well. Tight end will likely be the x-factor for the team. They’ve been pretty thin at the position for some time, which is why they drafted Noah Fant in the first round. If he can make an impact right away, he may be enough to elevate this supporting cast. And if the supporting cast is playing well, that means Flacco is playing well.
