What is the Denver Broncos’ biggest positional strength on the offensive side of the ball as the team prepares for the start of training camp? Do certain factors like depth and previous productivity play a role in this conversation?

Denver Broncos biggest positional strength on offense?

The Denver Broncos will kick off NFL Training Camp in just three weeks’ time, and much of the roster evaluation will occur during this time and the NFL Preseason. ESPN recently released an overview of every NFL team, analyzing each NFL team’s biggest strength, weakness, X-Factor, and non-starter that people need to keep their eyes on.

ESPN listed offensive tackle as the Broncos’ biggest strength heading into this season. From a positional standpoint, there is plenty of room to debate this topic.

Despite the key addition of veteran right tackle Mike McGlinchey in free agency, the Broncos have a lot to prove this upcoming season across the offensive line and at tackle. On paper, McGlinchey’s presence is the biggest upgrade the team has had at right tackle in over a decade, but he’ll have to solidify that stance with his production during the regular season.

Garett Bolles returns to the starting lineup this season after he missed a good portion of last season after suffering a season-ending broken leg. So far, throughout OTAs and minicamp, Bolles hasn’t appeared to be limited in any capacity.

While Bolles and McGlinchey are strongly suited at the position, offensive tackle isn’t the team’s biggest strength… yet.

Heading into this season, Denver has their two solidified starters and a reliable backup option with veteran Cameron Fleming, but they’re one injury away from facing questions about sustainability at the position. Many in Broncos Country shared their thoughts on this very topic.

When looking at Denver’s offensive roster in particular, a better argument can be made for wide receiver being the team’s biggest strength on that side of the ball.

With Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, KJ Hamler, Marvin Mims, and Marquez Callaway seemingly headlining the position’s top depth, the impact they can potentially have this upcoming season is imperative for success in Sean Payton’s first year. That’s not to say that Bolles or McGlinchey can’t have as big of an impact because they are monumental for what Payton hopes to achieve.

If an injury were to occur at offensive tackle, it’d be much more difficult to replace that type of production and impact. With wide receiver, each team usually has more options, and considering Denver’s overall depth and the ceiling they possess — it helps fortify that position specifically as the Broncos’ biggest strength on offense.

Ideally, if the offensive line becomes the team’s biggest strength, it wouldn’t be bad, considering Russell Wilson and Brett Rypien were sacked 63 times last year; if that number drastically reduces, the Denver Broncos will be much better offensively this season.

This week, Mile High Sports will focus on the Broncos’ biggest positional strength on defense, weaknesses on both sides of the ball, X-Factors to watch for, and which non-starters will be important for Broncos fans to keep their eyes on ahead of the regular season.
