What to do at quarterback?
John Elway and John Fox didn't draft Tim Tebow but they do have to find out if he is the future for this team, and that means playing him throughout the 2011 season. With one year left on Kyle Orton's deal, the Broncos need to trade him, if not now then when a starter around the league goes down with an injury before the trading deadline in October. There is significant money involved in this decision, but not as much if they don't know what they have in Tebow before next year's draft. Expect him to see a lot of action in training camp and preseason.
How will conversion to 4-3 defense go?
Converting defenses is always tough and can take a few years to be successfully completed. It will be interesting to see who the opening-day middle linebacker is, can the defensive tackles be one-gap penetrators, and can guys like Elvis Dumervil hold up on run downs with his hand on the ground. There is a lot of work to get done in camp, and every preseason game should see some steady improvement.
Can a rookie start at right tackle?
One might have to. Right now Orlando Franklin, a second-round pick, is penciled in as a potential starter. He better come along quickly or the team needs to acquire a veteran. Keep an eye on Franklin during camp and monitor his progress, as the Broncos will closely do.
