Denver Broncos 3 biggest strengths and weaknesses in 2022
The Denver Broncos have one of the best rosters in the NFL heading into the 2022 season, but they are not without any weaknesses.
The Denver Broncos have one of the NFL’s best overall rosters heading into the 2022 NFL season, but what are this team’s most glaring strengths and weaknesses?
Thankfully, the team’s strengths now vastly outweigh the weaknesses, but both do still exist on this team.
General manager George Paton has done a phenomenal job of reloading this roster, which already had a good foundation in place when John Elway stepped down from the GM post in 2021.
What areas of this team are strongest heading into the 2022 season? What are the weaknesses?
Let’s take a look at three of each.
Denver Broncos strength no. 3: A plethora of pass rushers
After trading Von Miller to the Los Angeles Rams last year, you knew it was only a matter of time before Paton addressed the team’s most glaring roster need outside of the quarterback position — pass rush.
The Broncos decided a year ago to pick up Bradley Chubb’s fifth-year club option, a standard option on every first-round rookie contract.
In the 2022 offseason, including the position switch of Baron Browning, here are the players the Broncos have added to the pass rush that weren’t around last year.
- Randy Gregory – free agency
- Nik Bonitto – top draft pick
- Baron Browning – position switch
They brought back Malik Reed on a restricted free agent contract. They still have Jonathon Cooper.
The edge position has a lot of bodies and the team has hopefully turned this position into one of strength. They have talked this offseason about wanting to bring a pass rush in “waves” and they are poised to be able to do exactly that.
