Trading for Russell Wilson changed the trajectory of the Denver Broncos as a franchise. Still, the collateral damage from the trade with Seattle will impact other positions on the Broncos’ roster. Other than the draft picks, Noah Fant was the greatest asset the Broncos gave Seattle in exchange for Wilson. Fant’s level of play in Denver gave Broncos fans plenty…

Injuries, inconsistent play and a floundering college football program turned former five-star recruit, Caden Sterns, into a fifth-round draft pick. Fortunately for the Denver Broncos and Sterns, the former Longhorn is on schedule to outplay his draft position and become a crucial piece for the new-look Broncos. Expectations were low for Sterns as a rookie with veterans Kareem Jackson and…

When analyzing Nik Bonitto and how his game translates to the NFL, his ability to bend and explode around the edge is usually the first thing mentioned.

After trading Von Miller and Shelby Harris over the last calendar year, premium resources were used on Randy Gregory and Nik Bonitto.

Earlier this week, the Denver Broncos signed Mark Barron to beef up their linebacking corps. With Todd Davis battling a lingering calf injury and 2020 fifth-round pick Justin Strnad out for the season due to wrist surgery, the Broncos needed to make a move.

Entering the final season of his rookie contract, Justin Simmons timed his breakout season perfectly. The first three years of his career showed real promise as Simmons flashed natural athleticism and a tendency for making big plays. It all came together in 2019 for Simmons as he was able to put up career numbers in interceptions (four) and passes defended…...

Jerry Jeudy and Pat Shurmur making their way to the Mile High City in 2020 is not a coincidence. Both were brought in to help revive an offense that has been lifeless since 2015. Even though Shurmur’s second attempt at leading an NFL team was disappointing, he remains one of the more simple yet forward-thinking and adaptable offensive coordinators in…...

With their third and final selection in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos selected former five-star recruit McTelvin Agim, the talented defensive lineman from Arkansas. Agim showed great versatility playing defensive end and tackle in college and was the Razorbacks’ best pass rusher in his final two seasons. Despite being a bit of a boom-or-bust…...

With the first of their three third-round selections, the Denver Broncos made one of their few defensive picks by selecting Michael Ojemudia, the defensive back out of Iowa. While not a household name, the All-Big Ten second-team selection elevated his stock throughout the draft process and possesses prototypical size-speed combination as an outside cornerback in the NFL. It doesn’t hurt…...

With the second of their three third-round selections, the Denver Broncos picked one of the most NFL-ready prospects in the class, snatching up LSU center, Lloyd Cushenberry III. Cushenberry was the second-ranked center on our Big Board, carrying a second-round grade. He was also one of the most impressive performers, on and off the field, at the Senior Bowl, constantly…...

After snagging the most dynamic and versatile speed receiver of this special 2020 wide receiver class, the Denver Broncos doubled down by selecting Penn State star, K.J. Hamler. Still only 20-years old, Denver’s second-round selection (46th overall) comes as a ready-made star from one of the most entertaining and explosive offenses in the country. In truth, the Broncos aren’t even…...

From thinking they’d have to trade up to having their guy drop into their lap, the Denver Broncos made out like bandits on the opening night of the 2020 NFL Draft. Jeudy was the eighth-ranked prospect on our draft board, carrying a first-round grade as the second-best receiver in a historic class with 20 wideouts grading out as future NFL…...

John Elway is no stranger to fourth-quarter comebacks. With options dwindling on the open market for starting defensive lineman, old No. 7 pulled off the move his team needed by swapping a seventh-round pick for five-time Pro Bowler, Jurrell Casey.
