    Default ESPN's Bill Barnwell on Broncos' offseason moves: 'The weapons, I think, are some of the best in football'

    After the Broncos reshaped their roster by acquiring Jurrell Casey, A.J. Bouye and Graham Glasgow and by drafting the likes of Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler, ESPN NFL analyst Bill Barnwell came away quite impressed by Denver's steps forward ahead of the 2020 season. In an article ranking NFL teams' offseasons, he placed the Broncos third. To get a greater understanding of his perspective on the team's 2020 outlook, including his thoughts on Drew Lock's potential, we spoke to him recently over the phone on DenverBroncos.com's "The Neutral Zone" podcast. Read on for a condensed transcript of the interview.

    Aric DiLalla: A guy that maybe no one knows too much right now about now is Drew Lock. What are your thoughts on him, based on a very limited sample size, and can you make maybe some floor- or ceiling-type comparisons for him of guys that are currently in the league?

    I haven't been this excited for an NFL season to start in quite a while.

    oh, man. . . on the one hand, it's really cool to hear all the national pundits giving the broncos so many props. . . OTOH, i'm afraid this might be yet another case of putting the cart before the horse. . . donkey, whatever. . . our off-season hype has now pretty much officially eclipsed the level that cleveland received last year at this time-- and we saw how that worked out. . . i am super pumped about our long term prospects-- but i think people who are expecting the greatest show on turf 2.0 right out of the gate are gonna be pretty freakin' disappointed. . . it takes TIME for it to come together-- particularly when you're relying almost exclusively on first and second year players, in the year with a jacked up off-season on top of it. . . naturally, i hope i'm wrong, but we'll see. . .

    “When we do find that guy, we’ve got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don’t find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    I disagree, respectfully.

    Pundits are giving us props because we did well in the offseason and improved our coaching staff. Cleveland was being talked about as running away with the division and playing in the SB. I think I've seen one pundit draw something up like "Maybe Denver, if they get hot and Lock exceeds expectations," as compared to "You have to have Cleveland in the top five contender discussion of SB winning contenders."

    It will take some time. But it's also an offensive league and we have weapons all over the field.

    I agree that Denver could be this years Browns but Denver doesn’t have a crackpot calling plays.

    Hopefully Denver is next years Browns of this year, when they fixed their god awful T situation.

    I feel this team will be very similar to the avs last year. Avs made the playoffs, upset the 1 seed. Took the champs to game 6 or 7 (on one of the worst calls in all of sports)....everyone said sharks wont beat avs again and avs were going to be very very good. Avs then came out this year and tied for 1 team.

    I see the broncos similarly. We are hit and miss ut make the playoffs. Maybe even advance a round. Next year those misses likely become hits and we have something special.

    We have a really talented roster. Issue is new players, new coaches, new schemes.....
