A realistic depth chart re-order for 2011 season

With the lockout likely to end soon (we are all praying for this), we'll can finally re-order our depth chart. I would then like to submit my idea of how I would like our front office to accomplish this task. So here we go with our season's 53:

 

POSITION STARTER 2ND TEAM 3RD TEAM
QB Tim Tebow Brady Quinn  
RB Knowshon Moreno Free Agent 2 Correll Buckhalter
FB Spenser Larsen Richard Quinn  
TE Richard Quinn Julius Thomas Virgil Green
WR1 Brandon Lloyd Demariyus Thomas  
WR2 Jabar Gaffney Erik Decker  
slot WR Eddie Royal    
LT Ryan Clady Chris Clark  
LG Orlando Franklin Russ Hochstein Stanley Daniels
C J.D. Walton Jeff Byers  
RG Chris Kuper Zane Beadles  
RT Ryan Harris Orlando Franklin Zane Beadles
K Matt Prater    
P Britton Colquitt    
LS Lonie Paxton    
LDE Robert Ayers Jason Hunter  
LDT Kevin Vickerson Marcus Thomas  
RDT Free Agent 1 Justin Bannan Leonard Louis
RDE Elvis Dumervil Mario Haggan Jeremy Beal
SLB Von Miller Mike Mohamed  
MLB Nate Irving Joe Mays  
WLB DJ Williams Wesley Woodyard Mario Haggan
LCB Champ Bailey Perrish Cox  
RCB Andre Goodman Syd’Quan Thompson  Cassius Vaughn
SS Quinton Carter Renaldo Hill  
FS Rahim Moore Darcel McBath Brian Dawkins


Italic
means a Free Agent signed.

Free Agent 1 options: Barry Cofield (NYG), Brandon Mebane (SEA), Cullen Jenkins (GB)
Free Agent 2 options: DeAngelo Williams (CAR), Tim Hightower (ARI)

 

A few considerations:

1. I set up our depth chart disregarding the current team's injuries. I am confident that when Demaryius Thomas is recovered from his surgery on Achilles tendon,he will be able to remain healthy and become the dominant WR that we expect. If not, Erik Decker assumes his position and we promote Matt Willis to the roster.

2. I have a great hope in our TEs corp. But as the great potential is in our two drafted players, at least in 2011 season it's necessary that Richard Quinn is the starter for the both rookies can gain some experience.

3. I'll be very disappointed if our front office doesn't resign Ryan Harris, even at this moment that I think it's quite unlikely. With Harris presence as RT, Orlando Franklin can play as the former LG he was in Florida, because he has a lack of pass protection and hasn't the fluidity needed to be an OT. IMO, Franklin would play RT just in the case Ryan Harris gets hurt, since we know about his injury prone.

4. I am considering Perrish Cox as free from jail, since this was the last news reported about his case. If there is a twist on the court,  Cassius Vaughn occupies the spot and we promote Nate Jones to the roster.

5. As Jarvis Moss is out now, I think much profitable to give an opportunity to Jeremy Beal to show his work. Beal was a great DE in college, but with a poor season in 2010 he ended up falling into the 7th round. I consider a steal for the Broncos drafting him that late, so it's a good idea to watch him closely, because we already know what Moss may or may not produce. So now let's see what can or can't Beal do.

6. Robert Ayers makes me very excited now that he is returning to his college position (former 4-3 DE). He is just fair as pass rusher, but he has enormous potential to be a great value in our DL, especially if we think how bad was our run stuffing last season. To rush the passer we already have two true nightmarescalled Miller and Dumervil, so in the 3rd down plays he can even be spoted as DT with Miller next to him as a DE.

 

And you? What do you think all about this? Any other considerations?
GO BRONCOS!
