Denver Broncos: Three Positions of Strength in 2020
The Denver Broncos have had some very good drafts the last few years. What positions on the team are the strongest? going into the 2020 offseason?
As with every team in the NFL, there are some strengths and weaknesses on the Denver Broncos’ roster.
The Broncos have struggled at the quarterback position since the retirement of Peyton Manning but seem to have maybe struck gold with the addition of Drew Lock in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Denver also drafted tight end Noah Fant in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft after trading out of their original pick, No. 10 overall, to pick No. 20. Fant saw an increase in production as the season progressed, and his improvements in both blocking and catching the football both got better—especially when Drew Lock took over for the final five games of the season.
Denver hired some new faces on the coaching staff recently with the addition of John Pagano, who is now tasked with coaching the team’s outside linebackers.
The return of Vic Fangio as head coach and Ed Donatell as defensive coordinator should bode well for the Broncos going forward, as Fangio is a defensive mastermind and will get to coach Von Miller and Bradley Chubb again.
I have omitted the defensive line because of the high number of pending free agents there. If not for that fact, it would definitely be included.
Without further ado, here are three positions I feel are the strongest on the roster.
