The Denver Broncos are going to continue re-shaping their roster in the 2019 offseason. Which position groups have the most significant need?
The month of January has been a very busy one for John Elway and the Denver Broncos.
The team decided to officially part ways with former head coach Vance Joseph, who is now the defensive coordinator for Kliff Kingsbury’s Arizona Cardinals.
Elway replaced Joseph with Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, a first-time head coach at the age of 60 after many years in the NFL as a highly coveted defensive boss.
Elway also hired on head coaching finalist Mike Munchak to be the team’s offensive line coach. The Broncos lured the former Hall of Fame player and longtime assistant coach away from the Pittsburgh Steelers with their rich tradition and a huge assist to Munchak’s daughter, who lives in the Denver area.
After signing on both of their top two head coaching candidates, the Broncos set their sights on hiring Ed Donatell as their defensive coordinator and San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello to be their offensive coordinator.
With those moves now completed, the team will turn its attention to the player personnel side of things. John Elway and Matt Russell were busy in Mobile, Alabama scouting the draft prospects at the 2019 Senior Bowl while the coaching staff was in Denver implementing their new systems in place.
We all know how much John Elway hates losing, and it’s fair to say that everyone in Broncos Country is fed up after two seasons and 11 total wins under Vance Joseph. The roster simply has to get better, and Elway is in charge of that department.
With the new coaching staff in place, what areas will stand out on the film they review as problem areas from last year’s team?
Let’s take a look at the top five areas of need for the Broncos heading into the 2019 offseason.
