Danny Trevathan is set to make his 2015 debut for the Broncos, and I couldn’t be more excited. With Brandon Marshall and Trevathan both healthy, this is setting up to be one of the best groups of linebackers the Broncos have ever had, and perhaps the best group in the NFL in general.

Not only can Trevathan hit (as he did hundreds of times at Kentucky) but he is one of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL. After missing most of the 2014 season, getting Trevathan back will be a huge boost for a Broncos defense that struggled covering RBs and TEs at times last year. He can also blitz.

In general, it’s going to be great to see him back.
