While the Denver defense is one of the best, their offense is near the bottom of the league and their offensive line is one of the worst in the NFL right now.
Ron Leary is their best blocker at right guard but even then, he’s average, at best. His run blocking is sloppy and he doesn’t use his size right. On one play, Dee Ford threw him aside and got a sack. Jabaal Sheard and Margus Hunt should get by him easily as he’s bad against the bull rush and the swim moves.
Garett Bolles is their first-round pick in 2017 and he’s a decent pass blocker but can get throw around. His feet are a little slow and he lacks arm strength and he can’t seem to get underneath the defender when they get slow in a power rush. Justin Houston should have a field day against Bolles this week.
Not only is the offensive line bad, but the quarterback play by Joe Flacco is also probably worse – and it’s not going to get better now that Emmanual Sanders was shipped off to San Francisco. The receivers on the Broncos currently lack any kind of real experience.
Courtland Sutton is a possession receiver guy and doesn’t gain many yards after the catch. DaeSean Hamilton is still young and has mostly played slot in a limited role, and Phillip Lindsay is the only running back who can catch out of the backfield but his pass blocking skills are atrocious.
Any way you look at this offense, it should be easy to attack.
