Inside Linebacker (4, 38)
Starters: Brandon Marshall, Todd Davis
Backups: Alexander Johnson, Josey Jewell
Comments: Nothing that I’ve seen is going to unseat the current starters right now, but that heat they feel are two young men breathing down their necks. I felt sorry for the Bears’ Taquan Mizzell who got to be the sacrifice for Alexander Johnson’s first special team duty after the Broncos 23rd point. He is still asking his teammates if they got the license number of the truck that hit him. He didn’t get helped up, he got extracted from the turf. I think Keishawn Bierria can play in this league, but not now on this team. Sorry, Zaire Anderson, you always gave your best.
Outside Linebacker (5, 43)
Starters: Von Miller, Bradley Chubb
Backups: Shaquil Barrett, Jeff Holland, Shane Ray
Comments: I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Von Miller and Bradley Chubb both make this team. Let’s give the young men and chance and see if they can develop some skills to go with their athletic abilities. Really like what I’ve seen from Jeff Holland. He’s a football player. Jerrol Garcia-Williams is close here.

Nose Tackle (2, 45)
Starters: Domata Peko Sr.
Backup: Zach Kerr
Comments: I probably differ from The Broncos on this, but I like Zack Kerr as the Nose Tackle. He makes a good D-lineman anywhere, though.
Defensive End (5, 50)
Starters: Derek Wolfe, Adam Gotsis
Backups: DeMarcus Walker, Shelby Harris, Clinton McDonald
Comments: The Broncos really had a lot of really young players that they tried out this year. Not sure this would be the group I’d pick, but I think it’s the group that they’ll pick. Derek Wolfe and Shelby Harris look good again this year. DeMarcus Walker can beat a block as fast as any down lineman. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it happens enough that you can see the talent. The Vikings started to double-team him so they wouldn’t have to roster him as a running back.
