The Denver Broncos check in at #6, with the potential to be even higher. Denver was on the losing end of the Super Bowl last year, but they appear to be favorites to win it all this year. Part of the reason why is their vastly improved defense.

The biggest signing for Denver this offseason was the addition of cornerback Aqib Talib. In 2013, the Broncos finished 24th in passing defense and 26th in passing touchdowns allowed.

With Talib, there is an immediate improvement. Denver also drafted Bradley Roby in the first round to help fix that problem, so they should be in decent shape this year.

Another big time free agent signing was bringing in former Cowboy defensive end DeMarcus Ware. Ware had a down year last season, but who didn’t in Dallas? Ware will have the chance to clean the slate and have a fresh start he desperately needs in Denver.

But the key to the Broncos’ defensive success lies in linebacker Von Miller. Miller missed the first six games of 2013 to a suspension and the entire offseason for a torn ACL injury.

But in those nine games he did play, he still managed five sacks and three forced fumbles. I can’t even begin to imagine how he will do in a full season with a player like Ware to take some of the stress off of him.

The Broncos’ offseason moves were a fantasy owner’s dream. They took a decent defense from last year, added a sack master in Ware to the line and a interception machine in Talib to the secondary. Unless there are some major injuries, this is a relatively low-risk, high-reward defense for 2014.
