  1. Broncos 2020 Schedule

    Oh that would be reeeeeeally fun 👀
  2. Broncos 2020 Schedule

    I personally don't find the schedule to be too awful, mainly because I think some of the teams won't be as good as advertised, but you never know. The Titans are one of those teams. I am happy to have that game to start the season. @PIT is tough on a short week. The TB game I can go either way with. Brady is historically bad in Denver, and TB ain't NE. Back half of the schedule is also very favorable and the bye comes at a nice time. On a personal note, I love the schedule. A lot of games I can reasonably go to on the East Coast- NYJ, NE, PIT are all within 5 hours of me driving. CAR I am going to with a buddy, and probably going to try and hit the Saints game in DEN or the Raiders game in LV for my birthday. The bummer for me is the London game. Wife asked me out of the blue if I wanted to go over to London for the game and obviously that was a yes. Could have met up with George. Guess it will have to wait for next year.

    Agreed. Dan- not sure what we can realistically complain about or Ellis could expect. Denver just got off another losing season, and hasn't been in the playoffs since the SB win. That we have 3 primetime games says more to me than anything, personally.
  4. 2020 Surprise

    I think Bausby, Dawson, Davontae Harris are all candidates on the defensive side. On the offensive side, I think someone like Diontae Spencer actually could have a bigger role than others think. I think it's no guarantee that DaeSean Hamilton makes the team. He doesn't play special teams (as of now), and there are redundant skillsets ahead of him. Ultimately, the altered offseason may work in his favor, but I don't think he's a slam dunk to even stick around.
  5. Jeudy and Hamlers NFL comps?

    Jeudy's best comp, as mentioned above, is Amari Cooper, IMO. Hamler is a tough one- I would say DeSean Jackson is a good comparison, but I like the John Brown comparison better personally.

    And I think it's what happens when you basically say, "We're taking this position in R1, and this is who we think makes sense." At that point, the scouting operation was also a complete mess from what I recall. I think a lot of factors played into those early drafts about unpreparedness in scouting/drafting, and it's certainly changed over the last 3 years.
  7. Garett Bolles

    Pick up the option. Even if he's the swing tackle, it's the right move.

    Stumbled may have been the wrong word. I have no doubt Elway liked Lock for at least a season before picking him, I meant more in the sense of...a culmination of poor decisions at QB prior to Lock meant we could take him in that draft, and thus far he's shown more promise than other young QBs we've had. The timing worked out.

    Honestly, it's a good lesson in how to build a team in the modern NFL. Elway tried to get WAY too cute by threading the needle between not wanting to actually rebuild, while trying to reload. He may have stumbled into Drew Lock to a certain extent, but this draft makes it very clear to me that he is invested and understands the path forward very clearly.

    Not draft related, but I have a feeling Elway will find a veteran FA for OT depth. Whether that's Beachum or someone else, who knows, but with the signing of Covington, I think we're going to see some one-year veteran depth deals here.

    I hated the Walker and Langley picks. Both were complete WTF reactions from me. I liked the position Henderson played, but not the player, especially after reading that he didn't really know the playbook at La Tech. Wild times.

    Quite a feat when you think about it.
  13. 2020 Broncos Forum NFL Draft Thread

    I agree- would try and bring Prince in for 1-year. We also have about $24MM in cap space from what I saw. Also, the Melvin Gordon signing was made official after the deadline, so it doesn't count towards comp picks. To answer your question, I think the Will Parks role is either going to be handled by an existing CB on the roster (Davontae Harris or Duke Dawson) or rolling out Strnad to some extent. I think it just depends. But I would speculate we're not done building the team quite yet.

  15. Grade the Broncos 2020 draft

    Dmac has been obnoxious on Twitter about this all week. I'm not clear who they wanted at 15, so that's ridiculous. Josh Jones went R3, so you're now talking a 1-round overdraft (roughly). I do share some surprise about not drafting an OT, don't get me wrong. But I think it's convenient to point to the Hamler pick as the one, where I could argue the Okuwuegbunam pick and/or the non-Cushenberry R3 picks are a place you could be questioning the decision instead.
