Looking back at the completed mock draft, we have seen a lot of improvement in raw talent and athleticism.
With a few exceptions, all of these picks have the ability to step in and contribute in their rookie year.
The Broncos have solidified the interior defensive line with the addition of Marcell Dareus, who will become a force on both the run, as well as destroying the pocket.
They have added needed skills and playmaking at the safety position with the insertion of Rahim Moore. A smart player who will hold down the "last line of defense" for years to come.
They have upgraded an aging and small RB roster with Daniel Thomas, who can provide a big change of pace to Knowshon Moreno and could turn into the featured back in Fox's offense. Assuming they can't get a certain free agent RB with the initials of D.W. from Carolina.
They have added depth and a safety net to D.J. Williams' suspension, as well as versatility with the addition of Quan Sturdivant, who has and can play both inside and outside at the LB spot.
They have added beef, and potential at the OT position, as well as insurance, assuming that Ryan Harris leaves with Jah Reid's drafting. And his frame allows them to add size with the ability of pushing his 320 pounds to 330-335 pounds and creating a bruising offensive line to power the running game.
And last but not least, we have addressed the pass-catching capability at the TE position with Mike McNeill's skill set and provided depth at the slot and H-back and even WR.
With these significant roster additions and with the hard-nosed approach of Fox, we have seen a big step up in the defensive talent, but also have addressed some weaknesses in the offensive talent pool, as well.
