With the NFL Scouting Combine over and the NFL draft approaching fast, the Denver Broncos possible draft selections are becoming clearer.
The top need for the Broncos is obviously to start rebuilding a defense that ranked 32nd in points allowed (Worst in NFL), 32nd in rushing defense (Worst in NFL), 29th in point differential, and 27th in turnover differential. Collectively the 2010 Denver Broncos defense was possibly one of the worst defensive units I can remember ever seeing.
Though John Fox wasn't an immensely successful Head Coach in Carolina, Fox's experience is the reason the Broncos felt he was the best man for the job of rebuilding Denver's defense.
Defense has been Fox's bread and butter for 31 years (He started coaching in the NFL as a DB coach for the Steelers in 1989). Even though the Panthers went 2-14 last season, the shortcomings fell more on the offense and an inability find a quarterback who could keep the team in games than on Fox's defense.
Without further ado, let's take a look at the players who I believe Denver will target to improve their league worst defense in the upcoming 2011 NFL Draft.
*** NOTE- I predicted no trades. Not that I don't think the Denver Broncos will trade around because it's a virtual certainty they will, I just prefer to look at the picks we have now and make my decisions from fact not fiction or unrealistic hope ***
