The Denver Broncos have one of the youngest rosters in the NFL. Which young players should fans be keeping an eye on at training camp?
Aaron Rodgers or no Aaron Rodgers, the 2021 season is going to be a fun one for the Denver Broncos, at least in terms of the exciting young players on the roster. Over the last four offseasons, the team’s front office and scouting department have done a much better job of loading up the roster with high-character, hard-working players from the college ranks, and national pundits are starting to take notice.
CBS Sports recently ranked the Denver Broncos’ roster 13th in the NFL. If roster rankings were playoff seeds, the Denver Broncos would be in as one of the top 14 teams in the league.
Pro Football Focus ranked the Denver Broncos’ roster as the 10th-best in the NFL.
That ranking went from 25th in 2018 to 22nd in 2019, then all the way up to 14th in 2020, and now 10th in 2021.
It’s time to start winning some games.

There are young players this Denver Broncos team will be counting on, of course, to turn that potentially top 10 roster into a legitimate playoff team. It’s not going to be easy over the course of a 17-game season, but the Denver Broncos do have some nice depth on both sides of the ball, not necessarily at every position but certainly in some areas.
With 2021 training camp just a shade over three weeks away, which young players should you be keeping a close eye on?
There are plenty.
