Good stuff Kemp. Always enjoy the reads. I might have changed a thing or two up or down but I saw nothing I disagreed that drastically with.

As SGC said, you have a great knowledge of the Broncos.

Don't be shy. Tee off on me where you disagree, and let's fight ,

TC's are opening… I'm feelin' froggy.

The only thing wasn't tracking with you on was the TE.

Right now the best TE in the division in Julius Thomas.

While gates is the most distinguished and Ladarius IMHO has the most best metrics relating to possible upside. Right now, Julius is the best in the division. That may very well change at the end of the year if Ladarius can do what many expect him to.

Even then, it was only a 1 spot flip.


Edit:

noticed this earlier in the thread:

"That's exactly right, but these rankings aren't meant to predict who will have the most production. If that were the case, Denver's RB's would be higher. But I'm trying to assess the talent and skill level at each position."

That being what it is, I guess I can see why you rated it as you did.

Kind of hard to place David Johnson.

He's a prototypical blocker, but a good one, and will give us a tool we didn't have last year for short-yardage and goal line situations, or if we want to force the issue in the running game. He's a hard player to place though, since he also plays a FB/HB type position, but he's listed as a tight end. Kind of a specialty tool, but one who will likely be on the field in the very most crucial of situations.

Since Kemp knows more about the other teams in the division than most, it would be interesting to see a "tools-in-the-box" ranking for players who may be unsung but will still have an effect.

For the Chargers I think you could rank the following guys as specialty tools:

D. Johnson - Pure blocking specialist
Tevin Reese - Pure deep threat (probably premature to rank him yet, just an example.)
Ryan Carrethers - Hold-the-line Nose Tackle
Seyi Ajirotutu - Special teams ace
Darrell Stuckey - Special teams ace
Nick Novak - Kicker
Mike Scifres - Punter

Then, of course the returners, though I can't say I have any yet idea who those will be for the Chargers. Maybe the Broncos fans on this thread can give some feedback on the Broncos special teams and other specialized tools.

I could agree with that but the margin is very thin. The only glaring stat win for Thomas was his TD's. Other than that Gates was just as good all while being 8 years older and mostly double covered.
