The 10 Biggest Threats to the Broncos’ AFC West Title
8. Offensive Line
The line last year was a hot mess, and the Broncos were right to shake it up. But the consequence is that continuity – one of the most important elements of a good offensive line, is sacrificed.
The incoming class does not inspire a ton of confidence either, as their lone opportunity against top shelf NFL talent this preseason resulted in Aaron Donald, Robert Quinn, and company tossing them around like ragdolls. Russell Okung is great when healthy, but there’s a risk that those peak years are behind him.
Donald Stephenson is an upgrade at LT, although given the way Michael Schofield played at times last year, a pile of tires would be an upgrade. Replacing PFF’s top rated run blocker, Evan Mathis at guard next to Stephenson is…Michael Schofield!?! This should be fun.
