Denver Broncos: 3 concerns that are bigger than QB issue
There is almost no doubt that the biggest hole on the entire roster is at the cornerback position.
The Broncos have Bryce Callahan and a number of questions beyond that. What will Michael Ojemudia look like in year two? Who is the team’s next-best cornerback and what does the overall depth look like?
The Broncos could stand to add a top-tier cornerback in free agency and take one in the first round of the draft, that’s how depleted this unit is. It’s similar to how the wide receiver position looked at this time last year and the Broncos addressed that by taking wide receivers with each of their first two draft picks.
The Broncos could sign a guy such as William Jackson III and then take a guy like Caleb Farley out of Virginia Tech in the first round of the draft. Add those two to a mix that includes Callahan and Ojemudia and this unit is instantly upgraded.
However, anything short of a scenario similar to that and it could be shaky heading into the 2021 season.
For a team that once had the ‘No Fly Zone’, the Broncos must address this position.
It’s one thing to grab onto a potential team-changing quarterback when you have the opportunity, but the Broncos should not be that quick to count Lock out. There is no way that Lock is a bigger issue than this team’s lack of depth at corner.
