Outlook: The Broncos defense remains light years ahead of their offense, but a new starting QB and new starting RB might propel Denver back into the playoff picture.

QB: There are no words that can describe what kind of surprise Case Keenum was last year in Minnesota. He led the Vikings to a deep run in the playoffs and showed that he is capable of being a starter in the NFL. Keenum excels in short throws (a staple in OC Bill Musgrave’s offense), and he keeps his mistakes to a minimum (only 7 INTs in 481 passing attempts last season). However, Keenum is 29 years old and far from a sure thing. He brings a sense of stability to Denver’s offense and signing him is probably a quicker way to the playoffs than investing in a first round pick. Former first-round pick, Paxton Lynch, will be Keenum’s backup and he would do well to learn as much as he can from him in team meetings. Lynch has potential, but right now needs to learn the game more thoroughly before he can be trusted.
