Pretty similar to AAA.  I think my wild card would be Kyle Peko earning a spot, maybe at the expense of Crick's salary, or Gotsis not showing anything.

Allen Barbre did not play at CSU, Elliot.

High-lighting him in green is sacrilege in this forum.

I am beside myself.

LOL @ CSU.

As much as Gotsis has a lot to prove, I don't see how he doesn't make the 53-man roster.   Just too soon to write him off, and doubt he could be snuck to the PS.

Maybe McKenzie could be snuck to the PS....he's really a ST-only weapon at this stage.    

I think we probably have to carry 8 DL rather than 7, given our altitude issues.  

To make that happen, I'm guessing both Jake Butt and Chad Kelly end up on the PUP, which clears 2 spots, and Virgil Green gets one final reprieve as TE.

Offense (25)

  • QB - Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian  - Paxton will be the more dynamic player in this offense
  • RB - CJ Anderson, Jamaal Charles, Devontae Booker, De'Angelo Henderson - I'd like to see Charles starting after the bye
  • FB - Andy Janovich - Will be a bigger part of the offense than many think
  • WR - Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Bennie Fowler, Carlos Henderson, Cody Latimer,  Isaiah McKenzie - Henderson grows into the slot by seasons end
  • TE - AJ Derby, Virgil Green,  Jeff Heuerman - Butt will replace one of these due to injury or poor play after week six
  • LT - Garett Bolles, Ty Sambrailo - Ty has gotten stronger this off season, but is he better ?
  • LG - Max Garcia, Allen Barbre - Garcia has the talent to start, but can he fend off Barbre ?
  • C - Matt Paradis, Connor McGovern - Paradis is best player on the OL
  • RG - Ron Leary, Michael Schofield - Leary solidifies the line, Schofield provides the versatility
  • RT - Menelik Watson - Watson is the biggest question mark on the offense IMO

Defense (25)

  • DE - Derek Wolfe,  Zach Kerr, Adam Gotsis, DeMarcus Walker, Jared Crick - The Broncos say Gotsis is gaining ground, some fans disagree...I'm, with the Broncos, but injuries will tell
  • NT - Domata Peko, Tyrique Jarrett - Baby Pot Roast will emerge and plug up the middle, Domato is only passing through
  • OLB - Von Miller, Shane Ray, Shaq Barrett, Kasim Edebali - DeMarcus will see some time here due to injuries, will he stay ?
  • ILB - Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis, Zaire Anderson,  Corey Nelson - Not a Nelson fan but he does have speed to cover, Hope we look for an upgrade soon. Davis is excelling
  • CB - Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr, Bradley Roby, Lorenzo Doss, Chris Lewis-Harris, Brendan Langley - Continuing to add young CB talent in Langley and Doss
  • S - T.J. Ward, Darian Stewart, Justin Simmons, Will Parks - Solid with talent and youth

Special Teams (3)

  • PK - Brandon McManus - Mr. Consistent
  • P - Riley Dixon - Rookie year had a few ups and downs but he's solid
  • LS - Casey Kreiter - Why can't the LS play on the OL too ?

 

Injured Reserve: Chad Kelly

PUP: Jake Butt

I think Cutler06 might be right and there's a good chance that the team just decides to stash Chad Kelly on IR this year, opening up a roster spot.

Well, BroncoBruin posted it first, but I think that's what they had in mind all along when they drafted him

One last shot at this before preseason starts, with roster battles to watch in bold

 

QB (2): Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch

Unless we decide to add a veteran clipboard holder, like we did with Austin Davis last year, I think we only go 2 deep at QB. Chad Kelly projects as an IR-stash, whilst Kyle Sloter will likely spend the season on the practise squad.

 

RB (4): CJ Anderson, Jamaal Charles, Devontae Booker, Andy Janovich (FB)

Anderson, Charles and Booker are locks. Janovich is a lock at Full Back. Juwan Thompson, Stevan Ridley and Bernard Pierce are the odd men out, although they'll battle it out for a spot if Booker is staying on the PUP or they decide to keep four tailbacks.

 

WR (6): Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders, Bennie Fowler, Carlos Henderson, Cody Latimer, Isaiah McKenzie

Thomas and Sanders are obviously the top 2 whilst Henderson is guaranteed to make it as a rookie 3rd rounder. Fowler appears to be winning the battle to be the third wideout, whilst Latimer and McKenzie will handle kick and punt return respectively

 

TE (4): Virgil Green, AJ Derby, Jake Butt, Jeff Heuerman

Green is the primary blocking TE, Derby is the primary receiving TE, Butt is the big hope for the future. If they decide to keep a 4th RB, then I think Jeff Heuerman may be a surprising cut.

 

OT (4): Garrett Bolles, Menelik Watson, Ty Sambrailo, Donald Stephenson

I think Denver goes 4-deep at OT, and these are the clear top 4.

 

OG (3): Ronald Leary, Max Garcia, Allen Barbre

Garcia edges out Barbre for the Left Guard role

 

C (2): Mathew Paradis, Connor McGovern

Versatility sees McGovern beat out Billy Turner and Michael Schofield to make the team

 

DE (4): Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis, Jared Crick, Zach Kerr

Wolfe is Mr Reliable for the Broncos, whilst the young Aussie looks poised to seize a starting role

 

NT (3): Domata Peko, Tyrique Jarrett, Kyle Peko

Domata Peko beats out the two young guys, including his cousin Kyle, but both look like decent hopes for the future of the Nose Tackle position.

 

OLB (5): Von Miller, Shane Ray, Demarcus Walker, Shaquil Barrett, Kasim Edebali

Von, Shane and Shaq are all locks, whilst Demarcus Walker has an interesting role to play, he will likely play snaps at OLB on early downs but then slide inside and rush from the 3-tech in nickel packages. Kasim Edebali is my pick to beat out Danny Mason and Vontarius Dora for the final spot, with special teams being a key factor

 

ILB (4): Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis, Corey Nelson, Zaire Anderson

Fairly clear top-4 here, not many questions to ask

 

CB (5): Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr, Bradley Roby, Brendan Langley, Lorenzo Doss

Chris Lewis-Harris might have something to say, but this looks to be a pretty clear top 5.

 

S (4): TJ Ward, Darian Stewart, Will Parks, Justin Simmons

Nothing to see here.

 

Specialists (3): Brandon McManus, Riley Dixon, Casey Kreiter

Nothing to see here

@paul-mac - Butt going to PUP would be a clear way to add depth elsewhere and keep Huermann for at least the first 7 weeks.

Changes after the first game:

 

OUT: WR Carlos Henderson (I think he might begin the season on IR, potentially as the boomerang player)

 

IN: RB DeAngelo Henderson (I somehow forgot to include him in my first 53)

This might sound crazy but does anyone feel tj ward could be traded or released? I mean Simmons I think is ready to start. An if Orion Stewart, and Carter keep balling out. Do we risk both being cleared for the practice squad?
