The way this team performs overall, especially with Tim Tebow now under center, will completely determine its own draft plan and that of the teams following it.
Tebow has had good performances to some extent so far this season, but if he struggles and the organization loses faith in him, the Broncos may be looking to take a new quarterback to replace him and Kyle Orton.
If Tebow plays well and shows he is legit, then the Broncos could be looking into wide receivers to replace the void left by the departures of Brandon Lloyd and Brandon Marshall.
And overall, no matter how Tebow plays, the Broncos have an affinity for running backs and may simply take the best running back available and add to their depth at that position. This may be even more likely if Knowshon Moreno fails to break out and remove his bust label.
The Broncos have many potential trends that they can follow. And their decision will surely shake up the entire 2012 draft.
