New-Look Denver Broncos Offense With Addition Of Bo Nix In The 2024 NFL Draft

The Denver Broncos have been looking for a consistent option under center for years now.

Since Peyton Manning delivered a Super Bowl to the franchise, Denver has been a mess at the quarterback position. Sean Payton took over as head coach last year and now has his quarterback to work with.

The Russell Wilson experiment did not work out. On Thursday night, the Broncos selected Bo Nix with the 12th overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. It was a loaded class and many believe that Denver might have reached on Nix. Regardless, he will take over under center next season.

Below, take a look at the potential depth chart for the Broncos in 2024-25.

What Are The Expectations?

The expectations for the Broncos will look wildly different than they did last season.

When Payton was hired as head coach, the combination with Wilson was expected to take the league by storm. Denver failed early on and it was clear that Payton did not want to make it work with Wilson. He was let go and the Broncos were free to draft his replacement.

Nix had a long college career. He has played a ton of football since his days starting as a freshman for Auburn. Nix finished off leading one of the best offenses in college football with Oregon. The Broncos have some decent skill position players for Nix to work with but it ultimately comes down to his development.

Javontae Williams and Cortland Sutton will return for Denver next season. Marvin Mims Jr. emerged as a speedy threat on the outside as a rookie last season. Nix will also play behind an improving offensive line.

The positive for a young quarterback coming in is the experience of Payton on the sideline. There are few better at developing and making it work within his system. This was the problem with a veteran like Wilson — there was no time or willingness for either side to pivot. That will not be the case with Nix.

Denver will not be a likely candidate to make the postseason next year unless all goes exactly right. This is especially true in a deep AFC West. All signs point to a developmental year for Nix and the Broncos.
