The Denver Broncos made a hell of a splash during the first week of free agency.
Denver—coming off of a 13-3 regular season—signed WR Wes Welker, G Louis Vasquez, DT Terrance Knighton, CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and LB Stewart Bradley to contracts.
These signings weren't merely done to shore up depth. They were done with the intention of improving positions with valuable playing time available.
Welker will start at slot receiver, improving a receiving corps that already had two 1,000-yard receivers returning from last season in Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker.
Vasquez will likely take over at the right guard position, where the Broncos were decimated by injuries to Chris Kuper in 2012.
Knighton will have a chance to take over the starting defensive tackle spot left over by free agent Justin Bannan. Terrance had played for defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio when Del Rio was the head coach of the Jaguars.
Rodgers-Cromartie will have a chance to start opposite Champ Bailey at cornerback, while Bradley will have the opportunity to compete for the starting middle linebacker position.
With these signings, how should the Broncos' starting lineup look by the time Week 1 rolls around?
