3. The Denver Broncos have a process and structure in place now thanks to Nix

The process is here, and it began in Year 1 of the Sean Payton era. I can spend another 1,000 words talking about how the Broncos got to this point, but maybe that's a different story for a different day. My point here is that the Broncos have a clear process in place now by bringing a rookie QB into the mix.

Nix isn't a perfect prospect, and heck, he might end up being a bust, but what Denver has in place now on offense is quite encouraging. Besides Nix, they're returning four starters from a top-10 offensive line in 2023. They're also fielding a competent group of wide receivers, which include two new additions in veteran Josh Reynolds and rookie Troy Franklin.

The backfield is also in a good spot, as all of Javonte Williams, Samaje Perine, Jaleel McLaughlin, and rookies Audric Estime and Blake Watson will, in some combination, give the Broncos a rock-solid group of backs.

The offense is set up for a rookie QB to success, and it's nice that Denver actually took that route. Bo Nix now gives the Broncos, potentially, a stud quarterback on a rookie deal for years, a potential Super Bowl window opening, and a ton of cap space as early as the 2025 offseason. As it stands right now, according to Over The Cap, Denver is projected to have over $68 million in cap space.

Just think; if Bo Nix ends up hitting it off and gives the Broncos confidence into year two, the team now has a reason to do what the Houston Texans are doing this offseason, and that's go all-in on the young QB.

Bo Nix offers the Denver Broncos a clear process and structure.
