SI.com's NFL personnel expert Michael Lombardi evaluates the Broncos' units.

QB B+
Cutler will win a Super Bowl some day; perfect sub in Patrick Ramsey.

RB C
Young is more third-down than every-down back; unit lacks size.

WR C+
Marshall is one of NFL's toughest to tackle; no real No. 2.

TE B+
Tony Scheffler catches, backup Graham blocks.

OL C-
Lacks power and explosion; either too old or too young.

DL C-
Dumervil, best of the bunch, should be a situational rusher.

LB C
Williams returns to weak side; LBs need to get speedier.

DB B
Don't blame corners: With no pass rush it's hard to cover.

ST D
Working in a new kicker and seeking to improve return units.
