Could Pat Shurmur grab another raw route runner and turn him into a slot fade stud?

The Broncos need receivers. We know it, they know it, and Elway has made sure the whole league is aware that he plans to address the group this spring. Fortunately, this upcoming Draft class looks historically loaded at the position.

One of the best ways to take advantage of the depth of this receiver class is to invest a Day 3 pick at the...

Good Morning Broncos Country!

The Denver Broncos 2019 season was a rough one for everyone. While it did on a promising note under rookie quarterback Drew Lock, a few veteran players were looking or at least considering jumping ship during the midst of their struggles prior to Lock starting. We saw Emmanuel Sanders get traded to the 49ers but nearly saw another veteran get traded.

Defensive lineman Derek Wolfe who recently just signed with the...

Broncos' Harris sees positive side of 1-year deal

While he sought a bigger deal in free agency, Shelby Harris isn't upset he's back with the Broncos on a one-year deal. "The important thing is that I actually have a job and I'm able to provide for my family," he said. "There are people who can't."

Greatest Broncos games of the 2010s: Steelers at Broncos, 1/8/2012

Tim Tebow capped his brief and unbelievable NFL career with a bang in the 2011 Wild Card round by toppling the 12-4 Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime.

Most of us, even those of us who had turned to full Tebowmania, had begun to think the magic of that six game winning streak was a fluke. The Tim Tebow era was about to go out with a whimper after Tebow and the Denver Broncos dropped their final three games to close out the regular season.

Somehow, the...

An electric waterbug with the ball in his hands.

It’s no secret that the Broncos are looking to add speed and explosiveness to their offense in the NFL Draft. At his end of season press conference John Elway said it’s a priority, and yet Denver did nothing to bolster the receiving corps in Free Agency. In fact the Broncos added players...

John Elway needs to be opportunistic with the eventual Denver Broncos 2020 NFL Draft Class.

On Tuesday’s episode of Cover 2 Broncos, Jeffrey Essay and I discussed what the Broncos should do if Tua Tagovailoa slips down the board due to uncertainty over his medical checks. I mentioned then that the Broncos need to consider all options, and that the best road forward was to be opportunistic.

So for this...

McShay two-round mock has Broncos going tackle and wide receiver

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos skip wide receiver in the first round in favor of an offensive tackle in this latest mock from Todd McShay.

The Denver Broncos have plenty of options in the first two rounds mostly due to the fact that this wide receive class is one of the most talented in years. They do not have to go all in with the 15th overall pick to get a solid number two guy opposite Courtland Sutton.

ESPN’s Todd McShay saw that reality in his latest two-round mock...

Should Elway nab an SEC shutdown corner?

In the modern NFL, passing is king. That’s why average quarterbacks make $20 million or more and teams have little problem paying it. Successfully moving the ball is the surefire way to a winning season.

Stopping the pass is also the key to fielding a competent defense. Vic Fangio knows this. At the Combine he spoke about the desire to add cornerbacks in any way...

Greatest Broncos games of the 2010s: Bears at Broncos, 12/11/2011

In a painfully difficult game to watch from a Denver Broncos fan perspective, it then turned into an explosively exciting finish and a sixth-straight win.

This game between the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos really didn’t deserve to make the cut, except it did. That’s the Tim Tebow chapter in Denver’s history in a nutshell. Just how painful was this game to watch for a fan? Well, it was 0-0 at halftime and 10-0 with 4:34 left in the game.

What do the Broncos’ visits tell us about their NFL Draft strategy?

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

In past offseasons, the Broncos’ visits have been a huge indication of where they’re leaning.

One only has to look back to the 2019 NFL Draft to see the importance Elway and the Broncos have placed on official visits. Noah Fant, Dalton Risner, and Justin Hollins are just a few of the players that met with Denver leading up to the draft.

In 2018 the Broncos brought Phillip Lindsay in for an official visit as well. Meanwhile, The Duke’s infatuation...

Broncos' Von Miller went all in again on his annual April Fools' prank

Von Miller’s annual April Fool’s Day joke continues to fool fans left and right. Miller posted a heartfelt message on Instagram Wednesday thanking Broncos fans, accompanied by an image claiming he’d been released by the team. Check the date, of course. Miller has not been released by Denver. The best part? Miller does some variation of this every year. In 2018, he claimed he’d been traded to the Cleveland Browns. He did the same thing in 2017, and has done similar in years past. In...

BetOnline.ag released their NFL odds for each division this week and oddsmakers have pegged the Denver Broncos as a team that could finish first, second, third, or fourth in the AFC West. Their best odds were fourth, but not by that wide of a margin.
