an opposing team's scout sizes up the Broncos

They have great depth, but there are questions. I wonder if Leon Lett can play defensive end. He struggled at tackle in Dallas last season....

Then there's Chester McGlockton. He won't give them what they want because he takes plays off. I think Mike [Shanahan] thought he had to get more girth in his line. Remember the playoff game against the Ravens when Jamal Lewis ran right through the defense for a touchdown?...

Tackling was a problem in their secondary too. I don't know if Deltha O'Neal is ready to play cornerback full time....

The best player on defense is Trevor Pryce. After Warren Sapp and La'Roi Glover, he's the hardest tackle in this league to block....

Brian Griese has really grown into a leader. He's smart and accurate, and last year he proved he was pretty tough....

They've shown that whoever carries the ball is going to get 1,000 yards, but I don't think people understand how much losing [offensive line coach] Alex Gibbs will hurt them. He was an excellent teacher, and now they have questions at tackle. They're going to try Cooper Carlisle or Trey Teague on the left side, and I like our chances against either of those guys....

I know Mike Anderson is coming off a big year, but Olandis Gary probably has the most upside. He's younger than Anderson, and he's not as beaten up as Terrell Davis seems to be....

They want Eddie Kennison to help them as a third receiver. They've been looking for someone to do that for a few years now."
