How will the Denver Broncos’ 2020 roster settle? Who may be added?
With the 2020 NFL draft behind us, we can begin to look at how rosters will shake out before the beginning of the regular season and I provide my predictions on how the team will look this year. The Denver Broncos received glowing reviews around the league for their work both in free agency and the draft. The Broncos not only added depth but several starters on offense, defense, and special teams.
After another losing season despite winning for their five games, the 2020 team will have more of the look of a Vic Fangio team than the previous two regimes. Fan favorites Derek Wolfe, Chris Harris Jr., and Emmanuel Sanders are gone.
In comes Jurrell Casey, A.J. Bouye, and Jerry Jeudy among others. The Broncos focused on veteran replacements defensively via free agency while heavily investing draft capital in young exciting offensive players in the draft.
The Broncos may make a few moves between now and the beginning of the season, but the brick and mortar of the squad are well solidified. The Broncos roster is ready to compete on both offense and defense in 2020.
Here is a projected breakdown of a Broncos’ 53-man roster for the 2020 season and keep in mind, two players can be called up from an expanded practice squad pool.
Two practice-squad players each week may be promoted to the team’s roster, meaning game-week roster sizes could increase from 53 to 55. The practice squad is increased from 10 players to 12 starting in 2020.
