There seems to be some real support for the performances of the players who played on our defensive line this season and yet many also seem to be suggesting that players on the defensive line need to be acquired in free agency and with high picks in the draft. With McDaniels suggesting that both sets of linemen need to get bigger will we see a huge movement by the Broncos in FA or the draft or indeed both?
The last depth chart was listed as:
NT - Ronald Fields, Marcus Thomas, Chris Baker
DE - Kenny Peterson, Vonnie Holliday
The majority of these players have been signed or resigned under McDaniels coaching tenure and only 3 of them weigh in under 300 lbs so will the majority of these players still be on the roster come the start of next season.
I would really like to know what people think will happen this off season to these players and how many players will be brought in. Will Holliday and Smith be resigned? Are the young players in the squad got the potential to be as good as those within the draft? Does FA provide an opportunity to improve this area? If there is the opportunity to upgrade which players will be surplus to requirements?
Any views would be much appreciated.
