As the season draws closer, more hype follows each and every day of the NFL’s offseason. In the case of the Denver Broncos, that hype is focused around a few players.
Most Broncos fans are anticipating the start of the season because Case Keenum signed on. This is exciting in the ‘Mile High City’ because of the quarterback play the past two seasons. However, what’s more exciting is the prospects of Denver’s 2018 draft class.
Chubb may become a threat faster than some may think with the addition of DeMarcus Ware as a part-time pass rush consultant. Chubb also has a solid unit around him that will help him through the learning curves. If he can produce numbers like he did in college, Chubb can easily be in the running for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

On the offensive side of things, Freeman and Sutton are in line to make an immediate impact. Freeman has already shown flashes of what he can do and is simply an undermined commodity. He could be the every-down back that this team has been missing for some time.
For Sutton, he should essentially be the third option in the team’s receiving corp. Fans should bet on him having a great first season and contributing another dimension to an offense trying to improve vastly.
Courtland Sutton had consecutive seasons of 68+ catches, 1,000+ yards and 10+ TDs in his final 2 seasons at SMU. He won’t be on the redraft radar this season, but could be the Broncos No. 1 WR entering the 2019 season. #FantasyFootball

Finally, Jewell is the player that many folks may not hear about this season. He’s a solid linebacker that the team needed. Jewell is a reliable tackler in the middle and with a little bit of time could be the Broncos next Al Wilson.
Denver hopes and ambition is running high and results are expected from the fans and front office. Those results will come if all the pieces can fall into place.
