» It's a new world for the Broncos' offense under Gary Kubiak. Denver will bring the fullback to the rotation. Last year in Baltimore, Kubiak started Kyle Juszczyk in 14 games. We anticipate a similar approach as the Broncos attempt to harness the ground game that churned down the stretch in 2014. The issue for Kubiak is there is not a natural fullback on the roster. Some might slate Juwan Thompson in that role, but we're going with James Casey. The Denver staff has gushed about Casey recently. The last two seasons in Houston with Kubiak (2011, 2012) Casey played fullback for the Texans. A willing blocker with the ability to flex out and catch passes, Casey will give Peyton Manning options when audibling.
»Bradley Roby will play a key role as the nickel back. The second-year corner will be on the field plenty after a solid rookie season, even if he doesn't crack the starting scorecard every week.
»Rookie offensive lineman Max Garcia could push Gradkowski -- not a starting caliber player -- for the center job if he picks up the offense quickly.
