The Broncos have several key positions that need to be immediately addressed, including middle linebacker and offensive guard.
Though the Broncos have voids at starting middle linebacker and left guard, it wouldn't be farfetched for the Broncos to draft a player at another position with the 31st overall selection.
As is the case with any NFL team, the Broncos underwent a roster overhaul that saw key players such as Champ Bailey, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Wesley Woodyard, Shaun Phillips and Zane Beadles leave through free agency.
The Broncos replaced the aforementioned players with free-agent signings such as Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware and Emmanuel Sanders.
The franchise still has holes to fill and several positions that are short on depth. Here are five key positions the Broncos could address with their first overall selection in the 2014 NFL draft.
