For the Broncos: ...Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY SportsThere is a thing going around Twitter where fans name the one player for each category. I thought it would be fun to bring that to Mile High Report this morning. You can participate on Twitter too, but be sure to copy your responses into the comments section below and see what other things. I really liked Scotty Payne’s list linked above, but obviously I had to make a few adjustments to make it my own. For The Broncos...Breakout guy: Courtland SuttonComeback kid: Emmanuel SandersRising Star: Bradley ChubbDon’t forget about: Justin SimmonsNeeds to rebound: Garett BollesDarkhorse MVP: Royce FreemanUnder the Radar: Will ParksI see Sutton as the breakout guy in 2019, because it felt like he was on the verge of just that during his rookie season. Expect big things from him. Sanders is coming off a major injury and likely to be the comeback kid in any situation. Chubb is already a rising star, but expect him to blow the hell up next season.Having been a big fan of Simmons, I was disappointed by his play last year. I attribute that to the worst coaching the Broncos organization has seen since Josh McDaniels came to town, so I am definitely not going to forget about Simmons this year under Vic Fangio. Then of course Drew Lock Denver Broncos Jersey , Bolles needs to have Mike Munchak work some magic on technique to clean up his tendency to hold. Then we get to my two favorite players heading into next season. First, under Rich Scangarello, I expect Phillip Lindsay to be the most dynamic offensive weapon the Broncos have and will continue to be the guy we all know and love from his rookie year. However, this offense is a between the tackles kind of deal and that’s where Royce Freeman has the ability to blow up in his sophomore season. Could Denver end up with two thousand yard rushers? And lastly, Parks might be the most under the radar player on the Broncos defense. Who makes your list? The inside linebacker is an important piece to Vic Fangio’s defenses. In San Francisco, he had Patrick Willis and Navarro Bowman in the middle of his defense and in Chicago he had the 8th overall pick Roquan Smith and former Bronco Danny Trevathan in the middle of that defense. Both were highly ranked units that featured the inside linebacker and I would imagine he wants to do the same in Denver. Currently, the Broncos have Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis, and Josey Jewell at that position. Marshall figures to be among the Broncos cap causalities in the coming weeks and Davis and Jewell do not have the athleticism Fangio’s linebackers have had in the past. So I would imagine Fangio would be looking to add talent and athleticism to this unit this offseason. One potential free agent who would quickly fix that is Baltimore Ravens linebacker, C.J. Mosley. Player profile: Height: 6’2”Weight: 250lbsAge: 26 years oldExperience: 5 yearsMosley played his college ball at the University of Alabama and turned into one of the nations top linebackers during that span. During his four-year career at Alabama, Mosley totaled 317 tackles, 23 tackles for a loss, 6.5 sacks, 5 interceptions, 3 defensive touchdowns, 17 pass deflections, and 1 forced fumble. His play at Alabama made him one of the top prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft and a prospect linked to the Broncos. However, Baltimore Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome nabbed himself another Alabama product and selected Mosley with the 17th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Since then, Mosley has become one of the better inside linebackers in the NFL. During Mosley’s five seasons in Baltimore, he has started all but three games during the span and being nothing less than a consistent force for their defense. He also totaled 597 tackles, 8.5 sacks Drew Lock Denver Broncos Jersey , 43 tackles for a loss, 9 interception, 6 forced fumbles, 35 pass deflections, and 32 quarterback hits.Now, Mosley is entering free agency as one of the better defensive free agents this offseason and likely near the top of the Broncos wish list. Why this makes sense:It’s simple really. Vic Fangio’s defenses are at their best when he has elite talents at inside linebacker. Currently, the Broncos have an average at best group that lacks athleticism. Mosley instantly gives them a three-down linebacker who would give them at least one high-end talent at the position. Mosley also brings consistency with him. He has only missed a total of 3 games through five NFL seasons and has started every game he has played in. He has also topped 100 tackles four out of five seasons in the NFL. The only season he had less than 100 tackles was in 2016 when he totaled 92 tackles. Mosley however, missed two games that season. This is exactly what the Broncos need in the middle of their defense. Consistency, a high-end talent, and a leader. According to Pro Football Focus, Mosley is their second best linebacker on the free agent market and their 27th best free agent available this offseason. Mosley probably won’t come cheap if he does indeed hit the free agent market, but if he does, the Broncos need to do what it takes to land the star linebacker.Why it doesn’t make sense:The only reason this doesn’t make sense if it the Ravens either Franchise Tag or re-sign Mosley before he hits the free agent market. According to Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, Mosley wants to be back and the Ravens want him back. However, they apparently have limitations on money which could limit them in locking up Mosley. I feel like this is something us Broncos fans need to really watch in the coming weeks. If Mosley gets taken off the market, I would imagine that would erase one of, if not the top name on their free-agent wish list. Final thoughts:If Mosley hits the free agent market, the Broncos need to get him. Simple as that. I don’t need to say anything else. However, I have serious doubts that the Ravens in their first offseason away from Ozzie Newsome running the show would let their star inside linebacker walk free.
