The Denver Broncos have had over two weeks of training camp, one game, and a good amount of time to evaluate. Here’s a new 53-man roster prediction.
The Denver Broncos are already into their third week of training camp. They’ve played one of their five preseason games.
The evaluation period is still ongoing, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t seen enough from players at this point in camp and in the preseason game against the Falcons to form an opinion of what the roster could look like come September.
Assembling a 53-man roster at this point is still pretty difficult. There are tight position battles yet to be decided and plenty of room yet for guys to make an impression on the coaching staff in Denver, but I want to put one together now for a couple of reasons.
First of all, to highlight guys who appear to currently be winning roster spots over other guys. Second, to look at what the roster could look like given the recent move to acquire running back Theo Riddick. Third, to highlight players who need to get back on the saddle and win their jobs back over the course of the next month.
It’s easy to forget, as much as the Broncos have already worked, that most teams are just getting going around the league, and 30 other teams have yet to even play a preseason game.
With all of that said, I want to look at the offense, defense, and special teams quickly and spend most of the time here talking about guys who are winning spots and guys who need to win them back or get things going fast.
