10 Denver Broncos who will keep the 2020 season interesting.

With this year looking more and more like just a learning year for the Denver Broncos, the team needs to just continue working on making their struggles into strengths.

There are plenty of talented players on this team. One of the issues is that they are young and need time to gain chemistry with one another.

So just because they don’t appear to be heading far this year, does not mean that this year isn’t important. It is very important.

This team has suffered through many very tough injuries this year, including their top wide receiver, their top outside linebacker, a couple of their best defensive linemen, and others.

Some will say that they should just tank — pack up and leave for the remainder of the 2020 season. That is never an option. There is still plenty to learn and see of this team and we’re excited to be able to do so.

This year is not only important for the near future, but it could determine if some of these guys will be here to stay for the long run.

Here are 10 Broncos players we’re excited to see for the rest of the 2020 season.

Quarterback Drew Lock

I know that there are some in Broncos Country that want to find Drew Lock’s replacement. It’s easy to move on as a fan after seeing so much struggle for the young guy.

While there are some underwhelming performances by Lock in the limited time he’s been on the field, we should still be excited to see what he can do. He’s been hurt, which is very unfortunate, and the COVID situation with the team’s quarterbacks forced him to miss a game as well, but let’s not give up hope this second.

Heck, there are still some games left to be played this year!

I understand that the interceptions Lock throws aren’t pretty. It just is not realistic to expect him to always have a clean game. We need to get behind Lock as long as John Elway and Co. say that he is the starting quarterback of the Broncos.

Unless Lock gets hurt again, he will remain the team’s starting quarterback for at least the rest of the 2020 season. Following this year, maybe he will get some competition. Whether or not the team truly would start another quarterback over Lock while he is still on the roster remains to be seen. It’s definitely a story to watch.

Until then, the hope is that Lock will show consistent progress.

All eyes are on the 2019 second-round pick. Nobody is watching closer than the coaching staff and Elway. I personally am excited to see what types of things Lock can do in the remaining games.
