Top 10 Denver Broncos Players Going Into the 2021-22 Season

The Broncos will have an interesting season. Drew Lock may not be the guy after all. Teddy Bridgewater will add some pressure on Lock as the never ending quarterback search continues. And for the record, no, I don’t think Aaron Rodgers will walk through the door any time soon. Sorry to rain on your parade NFC North fans and Broncos fans. My expectations are this will probably be a mediocre team. Maybe fringe playoff contender if the dice roll in their favor. Here’s a list of who to watch for.
The Top Ten
1 Justin Simmons

Justin Simmons just got a four-year, 61 million dollar contract, and I can't say that it isn't deserved. Simmons had an outstanding 2020 season and was ranked as the best Safety in the league going into the 2021 season by Pro Football Focus. He's also 27 years old, so he'll have a few more good seasons to come.

One of the best wide receivers in the game!

2 Bradley Chubb

You look at the state of the Broncos and Bradley Chubb will make sure there's some light in their future. It seems they have their Von Miller successor already in place. He had an excellent season last year even without Miller. Chubb made the Pro Bowl. If he stays healthy, he will be a deadly force for years to come.

3 Garrett Bolles

Having a good offensive line is important in this league, let me tell you. Bolles is consistently healthy, and he has given up no sacks. He received a 90.6 grade from PFF. He is a very important player for the Broncos.

4 Von Miller Vonnie B'Vsean Miller Jr. is an American football outside linebacker for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League.

I know it's odd not seeing him number one, but remember, he missed the entire 2020 season with an ankle injury. So, how will he come back from this? Keep in mind that he's 32 years old and not getting any younger. I don't know if he can turn back the clock at all. He might be closer to the end.

One of the best linebackers in the game!

5 Bryce Callahan

He missed 2019 with irritations in his foot, but in 2020, he picked up right where he left off when he was in Chicago. He's a solid cornerback. At the very least, he's a top three on the roster. He could make an impact in 2021.

6 Courtland Sutton

Courtland Sutton missed most of the 2020 season. However, when he's healthy, he's a reliable target and likely the top WR on the roster. He's also pretty underrated on the NFL landscape. Perhaps a better quarterback could help him be more productive.

7 Dalton Risner
8 Kyle Fuller Kyle Brandon Fuller is an American football cornerback for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League.

Denver added one of the Bears' best corners in Kyle Fuller. He's 29 years old, and while 2020 was a down year, he has still made two of the last three Pro Bowls. He could be a leader in the secondary in 2021.

9 Graham Glasgow
10 Shelby Harris
The Contenders
11 Kareem Jackson

Kareem Jackson has been a solid safety since arriving in Denver. He's a veteran and has been active most of his career, missing very few games. He is entering a contract year, so this season will be huge in determining his fate.

12 Melvin Gordon Melvin Gordon III is an American football running back for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

With the departure of Phillip Lindsay to Houston (I'm so sorry, Phillip), Melvin Gordon is set to become the number one RB on the Broncos' depth chart. Last year, he had decent numbers, and I expect him to eat up a lot of what Phillip Lindsay got in production. He could be a viable option for Fantasy Football this year.

13 Patrick Surtain II
14 Javonte Williams
15 Jerry Jeudy

Jerry Jeudy can still be a talented receiver. Last year, there was a lot of hype around him, and he didn't exactly live up to it. But, to be fair, his quarterback wasn't the best. This upcoming season will be very telling to see if he's good or not.
