When you look at the defensive end and cornerback positions for the Broncos, you probably think the team is set.
Denver added Pro Bowl players such as DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib through free agency.
Behind Talib at cornerback are Chris Harris, Tony Carter and Kayvon Webster. All three players were a part of the defensive back rotation in 2013 and will continue to play key roles for the Broncos in 2014.
However, Harris will be returning after a tear in his ACL.
At defensive end, Ware has been arguably the NFL's most consistent pass-rusher over the past decade. Ware has been named to seven Pro Bowls and All-Pro teams since entering the NFL in 2005. He has 117 sacks in his nine-year NFL career.
Along with Ware, the Broncos have Malik Jackson and Derek Wolfe at left defensive end.
Wolfe was the team's starter at the position during the 2012 and 2013 seasons before an illness sidelined him for the last month of the regular season and the entire postseason. Jackson started in his place for the remainder of the season.
A wild card at the position is 2013 fifth-round draft pick Quanterus Smith. The Western Kentucky product racked up 12.5 sacks in his senior season before an ACL injury ended his season. Smith spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve recovering from this injury.
The Broncos are not short on quality players at these positions. The concern here is their injury/medical history.
Because of this, the Broncos may shore up the defensive end and cornerback positions through the NFL draft.
