Denver Broncos: Looking at current starters on offense ahead of draft
The Denver Broncos are hoping to be a little more explosive on offense in 2020 to complement a potentially great defense.
Though there is plenty of excitement following the five starts Drew Lock made at quarterback last season, the Broncos need to be more potent on offense. Ever since the 2014 season in which Peyton Manning and the offense was still extremely dangerous, the Broncos have been a team that just doesn’t score enough points.
Vic Fangio is clearly a defense-first coach, but the Broncos can’t expect to win games by scoring 17 or 20 points every week in a league that has become so heavy on the offensive side of the ball. The Kansas City Chiefs, a team the Broncos must face twice per season, is a team that can light up the scoreboard in a hurry.
As a result, the Broncos need to find a way to pick up the pace when they have the ball and they need to build around Lock, giving him as many tools to succeed as possible.
The team did some of that this offseason by signing Graham Glasgow to help solidify the offensive line along with Melvin Gordon, a former first-round pick who has a tremendous nose for the end zone and can be a big threat in the passing game.
Still, the team has holes and that is what will come to light in this article. It should also help identify some idea of what the team should do with its draft picks in a few weeks.
So, position group by position group, if the 2020 season were to kick off today, these would be the Broncos’ projected offensive starters.
