The Denver Broncos have a lot of young talent to be excited about, but are they set up well enough for the future yet? We look at the roster weaknesses.
If you’re a fan of young, up-and-coming talent, the Denver Broncos are finally a team to be excited about.
The Broncos had an incredible 2018 NFL Draft and brought in another star player after the draft as a college free agent. In case you missed it, we graded the performances of this year’s rookie class so far through four weeks of the season. Needless to say, these players are exceeding expectations.
Through the first four games this year, the Broncos are 2-2 and even with that smaller sample size, we can see some clear weaknesses with this team that will need to be addressed moving forward.
The good news is, the Broncos have vastly improved offensively from a season ago, and they have some really exciting new pieces defensively. The pieces haven’t quite come together yet defensively as the Broncos might have hoped, but Bradley Chubb — the team’s top pick in this year’s draft — leads all rookies with 15 pressures in four games.
Even with all of the young players stepping up and making plays, what do the Broncos need going forward? Where is this team headed? How are they going to be able to compete with the Chiefs and apparent superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the foreseeable future?
Let’s answer those questions by taking a look at the team’s weaknesses, and what might be the best way to address them going forward.
