Denver Broncos: 3 players we need to see more of in second half of season
The Denver Broncos are a young team still looking for the right mix.
Led by second-year quarterback Drew Lock, the Broncos are a team that fans expected to see contend for a playoff spot this year, but the reality of the situation suggests that they are a bit further away.
Lock has been surrounded by talent but in a year hexed by injuries and an ongoing pandemic, there hasn’t been much chance for all of that talent to work together and grow together.
The team brought in several intriguing rookies during this past spring’s draft and many of them have yet to contribute much as the team has looked to get more from the veterans in front of them. But sitting at 2-4 entering Week 8 of the 2020 season, the Broncos need to either start piling up wins or start planning for the future.
The future could be bright and if the team falls to 2-6 or worse, then it might be time to start giving some of those younger players a bit more of an in-depth look on the field. The team definitely needs to know what it has in Lock but the building blocks placed around him will also be critical.
Many fanbases in the league are in constant win-now mode and that is certainly true with the Broncos. But after the start they have gotten off to and watching their performances against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs already this season, it’s clear that the team has much work to do.
As we hit the second half of this season, here are three players that should be given more opportunities to show what they can do.
