Denver Broncos Projected 2011 Depth Chart


This is the most difficult time of year for football fans but thankfully, we just had a very exciting draft weekend. Now, it's way too early to know who will actually be starting for our Denver Broncos but with the lockout back on and no real football news on the way, it's time to speculate.

I've included all of our recent draft picks, which isn't likely to happen, and four free agent pickups -- two of which I've heard others talking about.

First, if I was Kyle Orton, I wouldn't be happy with this draft. A new starting left tackle and two tight ends tells me one thing; Tim Tebow will be the starting QB. However, many teams carry three QB and if you've got a mobile one, that's a good idea. That's why I think one of the first free agent signings will be Tavaris Jackson of the Minnesota Vikings.

Jackson is a solid backup and like Tebow, likes to run around. If your Offense is built with the assumption that your QB may take off running at any time, having a backup with a similar skill set would be a wise move.

Second, it's well known that John Fox likes to run the ball and he likes to do it with two featured backs. This is the no-brainer free agent pick up, DeAngelo Williams from the Carolina Panthers.

Third, Denver needs a solid defensive tackle. With Ronald Fields, Marcus Thomas, and Justin Bannan out the door, someone's got to come in and plug the run. I think Denver has to bring back Bannan. I don't know how likely that is, but I've put him in the line up.

What I do think is likely, is that our new Defensive Coordinator, Dennis Allen, will bring over nose tackle free agent, Remi Ayodele from the New Orleans Saints, since the two have worked together. WalterFootball.com lists him with less talent than Bannan and only lists him as stopping the run "somewhat" well. Not high praise but with rotations from Bannan and support from our linebackers and defensive ends, he should be able to hold the line and let others make plays.

It's unfortunate that the Broncos couldn't find a solid defensive tackle in this draft, or any in the last decade really, but we'll just have to address that next year...or not.
