The Denver Broncos had a terrible season in 2017 finishing with a lackluster 5-11 record. It seemed like Denver’s best days were in the rear-view mirror but thanks to a great off-season this team has life again. Some many talented football players were added to this roster whether it was with Bradley Chubb on defense or Case Keenum on offense. Chubb is notable because he simply dominated at the collegiate level. This kid was easily the best defender to come out of the division 1 level and that’s saying something when you consider how many good players there are in this country? If you watched one North Carolina State Wolfpack game it was evident that Chubb was the real deal. You have to give John Elway and this front office a lot of credit because they didn’t overthink on draft day and ultimately they made the right decision with Chubb. The 54.5 tackles for loss and 25 sacks in the ACC make that clear as day and now Denver will have a lethal combination with Von Miller and Chubb. On the offensive side of the ball Case Keenum is definitely going to sure up the quarterback position. At least we know the revolving door situation that this team faced last season will be taken care of with Keenum. That consistency under center will allow the offense to significantly improve from the 27th ranking the Broncos posted a year ago. Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, and Courtland Sutton will have a competent player who can deliver the ball downfield. No incoming players will have an impact like Chubb and Keenum and those two additions should equate to much more favorable results on Sundays. Keep an eye on Chubb and Keenum’s production because they’re going to be two huge underling factors for this ball club’s success. Each season some organization surprises us and turns things completely around. The Broncos are definitely a candidate to make something like that happen.
