The No Fly Zone is gone. A new era has begun for the Denver Broncos’ secondary. Who will make up the top six cornerbacks for the team in 2020?
With Chris Harris off to Los Angeles to play for the Chargers, the Denver Broncos’ No Fly Zone is officially officially done.
The group that once made up the best secondary in the NFL has all moved on, and it’s a new era in Denver with Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell coaching the defensive side of the ball.
With Harris out, there will also be a new alpha in the Broncos’ cornerback room. It stands to reason that Kareem Jackson and Justin Simmons — both safeties — will be the ‘leaders’ of the defensive backfield in general, but the Broncos will have new players taking on every role at cornerback, starting with the CB1 job.
The team made moves in the 2020 offseason to hopefully get better at the position, as Chris Harris Jr. was not even quite himself in 2019.
The Broncos cycled through a number of starters in the 2019 season whether it was because of injuries or inconsistency.
Vic Fangio’s defense is not easy to learn, and young players struggled some to adapt.
Which players will progress in year two? Which players are going to be counted on to play the most snaps?
Although anything can happen between now and the start of the 2020 NFL season, here’s the way I see the Broncos’ cornerback position shaping up from 1-6.
