Top 5 Positional Needs Heading into the 2019 Offseason
Forging ahead into the offseason, between the last season and our highly anticipated 2020 season, after a few weeks of looking over the 2019 year, upcoming Free Agents, and 2020 Draft Prospects. I have compiled my list of the most important positions that needs to be addressed, before teams hit the field once again.
This is probably the most obvious of the needs, outside of studs Courtland Sutton and Noah Fant, Denver lacks another dynamic pass catcher to help out the offense, and take the tops off opposing defenses, while Denver has length, it lacks explosiveness and speed. Which will be a major boost to the offense and development of Drew Lock.
This is really only pointed at RG due to the lack of consistency, and ability to stay healthy, Ron Leary very well can be cut to save the cap money, (over $9 million) and there are multiple players who I think based on either draft or FA can fill in and be just as productive.
While I think Bryce Callahan can be a solid CB1 or CB2 when he gets healthy, the problem is looking for more depth, while CHJ (Chris Harris Jr.) as a question mark on his return there a was not a ton of good secondary players outside of him and Bausby at times, if Denver is expected to take a leap next season CB is a must add.
I fully expect this one to be one of the more crazy positions to predict, it shouldn’t go without saying regardless of the additions we should be solid here, with Shelby Harris, Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis and Mike Purcell (RFA) all being a free agent there is talent still on the team but it’s all about who you bring back, or who you replace them with in any capacity.
This position was more about the future outlook of the team, its more or less an insurance plan, if LT Garett Bolles doesn’t return once his rookie deal is up, or a contingency plan in case RT JuWuan James continues the trend of not being able to stay healthy, this position needs to be add another solid player no matter if 1 or both situations arise.
