Defensive Line (9, 34/53)

Derek Wolfe, DeMarcus Ware, Terrance Knighton, Sylvester Williams, Malik Jackson, Marvin Austin, Quanterus Smith, Kevin Vickerson, Kenny Anunike

This is arguably the deepest unit for the Broncos up and down the roster. There is no player on this list that I’d be uncomfortable putting in regular season action at this point, save for maybe Anunike who is still relatively unproven, as is Quanterus Smith.

Those guys have both flashed big time ability, however, and are making an impact.
