Broncos Free Agents Rated


Walter Football has released its rankings of free agents this year. Not sure about the rankings of players on other teams but I can't say I really disagree with his ratings of the Broncos. Rankings out of 5 stars after the jump

4 stars - #2 among FA K Matt Prater K, Broncos. Age: 28
Matt Prater is unbelievably clutch, which is exactly what you want out of a kicker. He was also 3-of-4 from 50-plus. Prater deserves a relatively large contract this offseason

3 stars - #9 among FA DT's Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Broncos. Age: 28
Brodrick Bunkley had a great year as a run-stuffer, but he offers nothing in the pass-rushing department.

2 stars - #8 among FA OLB's Wesley Woodyard, OLB, Broncos. Age: 26
Wesley Woodyard could be a starting weakside linebacker somewhere, but didn't get the opportunity to play at that position this past year because of D.J. Williams.

2 stars - #12 among FA ILB Joe Mays, ILB, Broncos. Age: 27
Joe Mays is usable as a two-down thumper in run support, but he is completely clueless in coverage.

2 stars - #15 among FA DT's Marcus Thomas, DT, Broncos. Age: 26
Marcus Thomas is good in run support, but doesn't have a prayer of ever getting to the quarterback.

2 stars - #20 among FA WR's Eddie Royal, WR/PR, Broncos. Age: 26.
Eddie Royal has inexplicably completely regressed as a receiver, but he's a pretty dynamic punt-returner.

1 1/2 stars - #14 among FA OLB's Mario Haggan, OLB, Broncos. Age: 32

1 1/2 stars - #18 among FA QB's Brady Quinn, QB, Broncos. Age: 27

1 1/2 stars - #25 among FA DT's Ryan McBean (RFA), DT, Broncos. Age: 28

1 1/2 stars - #29 among FA DE's Jason Hunter, DE, Broncos. Age: 29

1 star - #12 among FA FB's Spencer Larsen, FB, Broncos. Age: 28

1 star - #16 among FA TE's Daniel Fells, TE, Broncos. Age: 28

1 star - #22 among FA TE's Dante Rosario, TE, Broncos. Age: 27

1 star - #28 among FA G's Russ Hochstein, G, Broncos. Age: 34

1 star - #31 among FA DE's Derrick Harvey, DE, Broncos. Age: 25

1 star - #34 among FA G's Manuel Ramirez, G, Broncos. Age: 29

1 star - #42 among FA WR's Matt Willis (RFA), WR, Broncos. Age: 28

1 star - #46 among FA CB Jonathan Wilhite, CB, Broncos. Age: 28

From what I understand (his opinion not mine), 1 shouldn't be on a roster. 1 1/2 is bench. 2 is rotational/situational starter. 3 is good starter. 4 and 5 are special players.
