Denver Broncos Initial Depth Chart Review

Key Notes:

Starting Offensive line has been set for quite some time seemingly. But Elijah Wilkerson received a glowing review from offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello and maybe that’s some foreshadowing for Garrett Bolles.

Starting center Conner McGovern will play in the Hall of Fame game Thursday as the coaching staff believes he needs to work on his snaps, and stop putting them in the dirt.

The Broncos are going to have a lot of weapons on offense with five Wide Receivers primed to receive plenty of playing time during the regular season. Some guys will stick around and make the roster for Special Teams.

The Broncos have fight tight ends that would see the field on most other teams. The talent separating the starter from the fourth string is marginal. If injury history has been any indicator, they might use every tight end on this roster.

Their defensive is most likely going to cut a player that can play in this league. Billy Winn as the seventh defensive lineman and it would not be shocking to see him hit free agency.

The team looks incredibly top heavy and thin at outside linebacker with journeyman Dekoda Watson as well as rookie Justin Hollins comprising the second string behind All-Pro Von Miller and sophomore Bradley Chubb.

With the Todd Davis injury, the inside linebacker spot next to Josey Jewell is wide open. Joseph Jones, Alexander Johnson and Keishawn Bierria have been taking reps with the first team at training camp. The Hall of Fame game will provide more clarity about who will secure that roster spot.

The Broncos secondary is seemingly deep at every position and some safeties that can play at a very high level. Kareem Jackson’s versatility is such a gift to this roster. It provides the ability to mix and match position players and shuffle to the secondary’s strengths. De’Vaunte Bausby coming over from the AFL as the interception leader in that league. It is such a pleasant surprise seeing him as the second string right cornerback.

Today’s Hall of Fame game marks the start of the NFL preseason, and the Broncos have an opportunity to hit the field first as they take on the Atlanta Falcons at 6:00 p.m.

The roster position battles that fans and coaches should watch are second string quarterback, starting left tackle, starting center, tight end depth positioning, top six defensive line positioning, outside linebacker depth and inside linebacker backup spots. kick Returner and punt returner seem wide open.
