Adjusting to this unusual offseason will help determine whether these Broncos can make the most of the 2020 season.
From signing a two-time Pro Bowl running back in Melvin Gordon, to drafting back-to-back receivers in Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler to start the draft, it’s clear adding explosion to the offense was a main priority for John Elway in 2020.
Yet there’s one other notable addition to the offensive side of the ball that hasn’t had a dangerous label to his name. Until now.
On paper, he did just that by signing a Pro-Bowl running back, drafting an All-American receiver and selecting one of the fastest wideouts in the draft. With all of the new additions, including key pickups on the offensive line, the Broncos will have many new faces in the starting lineup.
No way Jerry Jeudy would last until the 15th-overall pick, right? The Broncos didn't believe so. In fact, in their prep for the draft, Denver's brass had Jeudy falling to them in "a lot less" than 50 percent of their mock drafts.
After a star-studded free-agency and trade period, John Elway plugged many of the holes with his sweet-as-honey moves. Yet there’s still plenty of work to be done as Vic Fangio acknowledged after free agency, saying “we still have enough needs on both sides of the ball.” Here’s how those needs stack up as the team enters the draft.
The Broncos’ 2018 rookie class made John Elway look like a genius their rookie season. But with incredibly high expectations in their second year, were they able to do the same?
There’s hope. There’s hope for the Broncos' future. There’s hope that the next golden days for the Broncos are soon. But Von Miller stands by what the cold, hard reality is of the Denver Broncos.
On Sunday, the Chiefs, followed by Von Miller, forcefully brought the Broncos back to earth, with Von's comments resonating just as loud as the game itself. But on Monday, Fangio wasn't phased by the very dark picture one of his own players had metaphorically painted.
Drew Lock has made football fun again in Denver. He, along with the young rising corps of players, have brought hope back to Broncos Country. But on Sunday, the Broncos were brought back to reality. And Von Miller wasn't afraid to vocalize just how tough of a spot the organization has been in.

Drew wasn’t just relaying plays in the huddle—he was literally calling his own plays in the huddle. And it paid off in spades. Or, more accurately, touchdowns.
Questions were abound as the Broncos lead slowly and painfully drifted out of their hands. Answers came after the game.

On Sunday against Cleveland, the undrafted, unheard of and unnoticed Allen had a glistening 125.6 passer rating—only 3.6 points behind Manning’s magnificent debut against the Steelers in 2012. And, to be fair, Allen’s wasn’t just his first start as a Bronco, like No. 18’s, it was his first start ever in the NFL.
The Broncos' sixth starting QB since Peyton Manning's retirement is an unknown quantity, but he has spurred some confidence in his teammates.
And most of those wounds were on the offensive side. That leads to a question as the Broncos seek new life: Is it good for Drew Lock to start with this scheme and tactical emphasis?
