Knowshon Moreno, Denver’s 3rd year formerly starting running back, is on the verge of being a draft bust. Josh McDaniels drafted him #12 in the 2009 draft and, given his stellar college career, he came into the NFL with high expectations. At Georgia, despite declaring for the NFL draft as a junior, he held sixth place in the school record list for 498 rushing attempts, 2,734 rushing yards, and 30 rushing touchdowns.
But his first year with the Broncos was met with disappointment: he managed only a 59.2 yards per game average in 16 games, and a paltry 7 touchdowns. He seemed slow to hit the hole, indecisive, and lacked a burst once he hit the second level. His performance seemed less than pedestrian. While it is true that the offensive line took a lot of the blame for his poor performance, Moreno himself seemed to be much of the problem.
2010 was not any better. He only played in 13 games, but his average per game went up by only .7 to 59.9 yards per game and only 5 touchdowns.

Will Brian Dawkins decide to call it a career in 2012?
That is the question that faces him. It seems apparent that Denver has no plans to re-sign Dawkins, who will become a free agent. He has missed the end of this season with a neck injury and missed some time last year due to a neck ailment as well.

Broncos backup QB Brady Quinn told the truth, offering his thoughts on starter Tim Tebow. Quinn told GQ’s Mike Silver that Tebow’s praying “doesn’t seem very humble.” Ouch.

The Broncos' pre-draft preparations are underway at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, which will include a look at plenty of quarterbacks as the Broncos prepare to add at least two more this offseason.
Broncos coach John Fox was lauded for changing his offense during the 2011 to take advantage of Tim Tebow’s strengths. With an offseason to prepare Tebow as a starter, it sure sounds like Fox wants to make Tebow look more like the rest of quarterbacks in the NFL. “[Tebow] is going to be a great…
