The 2014 Preseason Schedule announced:

The Broncos will the host the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks in week one the preseason. Then they will travel to San Francisco to play the first game in the brand new Levi's Stadium, the new home of the 49ers. Their week three matchup, or the "Dress Rehearsal" they will host the Houston Texans and the #1 overall pick in the draft, and the final preseason game will be in Dallas against the Cowboys.

Mocking The Draft:

Dan Kadar from Mocking The Draft recently did an updated two round mock draft. Lets take a look at who he has the Broncos selecting.

31. Denver Broncos: Ryan Shazier, LB, Ohio State

Denver has to figure out a way to replace the 765 snaps that Wesley Woodyard took last season at middle linebacker. Shazier was mostly listed as an outside linebacker, but Ohio State's defense often called for him to line up in the middle and control the defense. He's more than capable of playing the position full time in the NFL and would even be an upgrade over Woodyard.

63. Denver Broncos: David Yankey, G, Stanford

After losing Zane Beadles in free agency, Yankey could be brought in to plug that hole without much loss in talent.

If the Broncos landed both Ryan Shazier and David Yankey i'd be pretty excited. I like seeing that Kadar believes Shazier could play Inside Linebacker full time in the NFL too!
