The Denver Broncos have torn through free agency like no other team in the NFL, signing big names and apparently getting almost anyone they want. They've filled needs, overhauled the defense and given themselves an infusion of athleticism and nastiness.
John Elway has been working his magic off the field as much as he used to work it on the field, and it has dramatically changed the face of the team. The Broncos should be much more physical in 2014, a team that will beat you by running over your offense and keeping you out of the end zone, not just by scoring 40 points a game.
The big free agents who have been signed so far are T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and Emmanuel Sanders.
When looking at the rankings for these players and their impact on the Broncos, it's important to look at three key components:
1. the biggest need
2. how the player transforms the team
3. the player's raw skill and upside
With these things in mind, it is easy to see how each player is going to change the organization, setting it up for another Super Bowl run, and you can see who will have the most impact on a team that was already very close to being the best in the NFL.
