Denver Broncos: Who Will and Won't Be Blocking Up Front In 2011

The 2010 edition of the Denver Broncos offensive line was a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Well, sort of.

What looked to be one of the strengths of the team coming into the season turned out to be more of weakness.

Part of this was due to injuries and part of it was due to bad trades and a lot of it was due to a poor judgement call on Josh "Mastermind II" McDaniels.

McDaniels took a line that was built around and was anchored in the zone blocking scheme. The same scheme that opened holes for the likes of Terrell Davis and held the fort for John Elway to do his magic.

Then came the fateful signing of McDaniels as the new head coach and the decision to convert to a power blocking scheme.

This was a bit like taking a well-running Corvette and turning it into a dump truck using the Corvette parts.

But with head coach John Fox, OC Mike McCoy and new O-line coach Dave Magazu, we will see a much tougher and meaner line next season.

Magazu, who came over with Fox from Carolina, will make this line one that will punch holes for the Denver RBs and knock some people on their collective butts as we get back to the basics and running the rock. 

So let's take a look at what we might see up front going forward next year, shall we?
