Denver Broncos Keep Title Hopes Alive

The Denver Broncos are looking to shore up key positions on defense in an effort to make another run at the Super Bowl.


The Broncos currently hold the 31st pick in the first round of the NFL draft that begins on May 8th.  Some reports indicate they would be willing to trade down to acquire multiple players of the same grade in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.  This year's draft could be worth nabbing a few extra picks with a field that is deeper than previous drafts have seen.


The Broncos have spent the majority of their money to retain key defensive players this year.  They have allocated $32 million in funds to defensive end DeMarcus Ware, strong safety T.J. Ward, and cornerback Aqib Talib.  Terrance Knighton has said he will honor the $2.5 million contract he is going to receive this year as well.


The Broncos could mainly be looking for a star returner to enhance their special teams game.  That would give them a much shorter field to work with during games -- to compliment the most explosive offense in NFL history during the 2013 season.  Picks could also set-up for future defensive players that could play a key role for starters who are injured later in the season.  Denver has their bye week before the end of September in 2014 -- and won't be getting much rest for the duration of the season on into the playoffs.


Denver has been motivated to right the disastrous 43-8 Super Bowl loss they had at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks.  Players have mentioned they have been training hard all off season long to make sure they can get back to the big stage and right the wrong that happened.


“We use it every day and we come in and say we lost by 35,” Broncos defensive end Malik Jackson recently told the media. “That’s our motivation. Whenever somebody gets tired, we just say ‘35’ and they start picking it up again.”


According to ESPN, the days after the Super Bowl loss the team President John Elway spoke about how the team would react to the defeat and what they planned to do moving forward from that point.


"April 21st -- everybody that knows it comes in here and the people that we bring in here when it gets to 85-90 guys on the roster ... the goal has not changed and it will not change," Elway said then. "We will use this as an experience that we went through, be disappointed that we didn't play better, but the bottom line is this organization and what (owner) Pat Bowlen wants from this organization -- that has not changed and it will not change. The bottom line is we're going to work as hard as we worked this year, if not harder."


If the Broncos are to make it back to the Super Bowl -- they will have to go through one of the league's most challenging 2014 schedules.  They will have to go to Seattle during the regular season, and face a 49ers team at home that the Seahawks said was their toughest game of the 2013 season.
