The Denver Broncos had a terrific offseason, adding an abundance of talent to a young, ascending team. In 2020 they are set to surprise the NFL.

It seems that John Elway and the Broncos have finally found the answer at the quarterback position. After the Peyton Manning‘s retirement, Denver has struggled to find consistency and stability under center. The gamble Elway took at the second round in the 2019 NFL Draft with Drew Lock, brought promise and excitement to the franchise and their fanbase.

Lock started the last five games of the season, winning four. He showed noticeable improvement in every area of his game compared to his college tape. His improved footwork in particular has allowed him to be more accurate and poised in the pocket. We already know about his rocket arm, inconsistency was the question.

Broncos new weapons

The amount of work Denver put into the offseason with the dynamic weapons they brought to the team, shows the confidence and excitement they have in Drew Lock. If you want your quarterback to be successful, you have to do everything in your power to surround him with talent.

Denver signed Melvin Gordon to a young and talented group of running backs with Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman.

Also, the Broncos utilized two high draft picks to enhance the wide receiver’s corps. First-round selection, Jerry Jeudy was seen by many people as the best wide receiver in the Draft. He possesses amazing route-running skills, great hands, exceptional balance, and a rare ability to start and stop with fantastic acceleration, creating a lot of separation.

Second-round selection KJ Hamler is a magnificent slot receiver with great speed, good hands, and the ability to stretch the defense.

Offensive line

The addition of Graham Glasgow via free agency and Lloyd Cushenberry via Draft solidifies a young and promising unit. Garrett Bolles remains as the question mark in this offensive line, but he showed improvements last year. Ja’Wuan James only played three games in 2019 due to an injury, but will be back starting at right tackle. Led by Mike Munchak, one of the best OL coaches in the NFL, expect each player to show improvements.

The return of Bradley Chubb

HC Vic Fangio is one of the brightest defensive minds in the game. Last season he didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy one of the most talented pass rushers group in the NFL. Bradley Chubb suffered a torn ACL in 2019 after just 4 games. Chubb’s presence will have a huge impact the defense. He is a game-changer, an absolute star on the opposite side of Von Miller.

Elway also traded for a very disruptive interior of the defensive lineman Jurrell Casey. The Broncos acquired him for just a 7th round pick.

Denver face a tough schedule with plenty of good teams, but the majority of those games will be at Mile High Stadium.

With plenty of young talent and an experienced coaching staff, keep an eye on the Denver Broncos in 2020 as they could be one of the biggest and most pleasant surprises in the NFL.
