Posted Jan 10, 2018

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Broncos needed more than they got from draft class, but gems emerged (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
Even as their draft picks had their share of struggles, the Broncos continued to show a knack for finding undrafted gems.

Forget the quarterbacks. Player the Broncos should covet in NFL draft is Saquon Barkley (Mark Kiszla, Denver Post)
Barkley can do what running back Todd Gurley has done for football in Los Angeles and make Denver relevant again in the playoff conversation.

The NFL is a game of who you know. Offseason moves by players and especially coaches are so often dictated by connections to others in the league.

It was a throw so perfect, Heuerman said, “I could have caught it with my teeth.”

If Broncos want Josh Rosen, they’ll have to make a blockbuster trade (Jeff Legwold, ESPN)
Nobody has thrown a pre-draft pass yet, but if things go as people expect in the interviews, private workouts and private visits to come, the Broncos will have to move up from the No. 5 pick, possibly even to No. 1, to get Rosen.

GM John Elway isn't necessarily feeling the heat, but there's an
urgency to win in Denver, which could drive changes. 

Broncos Denver7 postseason awards: Miller earns MVP honors (Troy Renck, KMGH)
He finished with 10 sacks, and zero in his last three games. However, he ranked as the most-dominant edge defender in quarterback pressures by Pro Football Focus. Opponents centered their game plan on him.
