4. Playmakers galore
One of our first reasons the Broncos would be the NFL’s sleeper team in 2018 was an improved offense. Let’s take a deeper dive into why the Broncos offense will improve.
For what seems like the first time in three seasons, the Broncos have playmakers at every position offensively.
Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are the top two receivers, however, the Broncos have needed a number three receiver to step up.
Enter Courtland Sutton with a combination of DaeSean Hamilton and the Broncos offense looks scary if they got with an empty set.
Tight Ends More Involved
At tight end, the Broncos will get a chance to see Jake Butt in action alongside Jeff Heuerman, and rookie tight end Troy Fumagalli. Denver however, hasn’t found a reliable weapon at tight end since Owen Daniels back in 2015.
The lack of weapons in 2016 and 2017 hurt the Broncos offense who were forced to depend on both Thomas and Sanders to make plays.
Training camp will feature competition between all three tight ends.
Can Jeff Heuerman transform the flashes he’s shown into consistent production? Will Jake Butt be the athletic tight end who can block that he was prior to tearing his ACL? Can Troy Fumagalli provide the Broncos with reliable depth and talent?
Training Camp will reveal these questions on July 28th.
