    no, it isn't. 7 WR is too much capital tied up in one position...especially when at least 3 of them would hardly ever see the field. I don't think they have ever kept 7 WR.

    These are bare minumums:

    QB-2
    RB-3
    FB-1
    TE-2
    WR-4
    Oline-8
    Dline-6
    LB-8
    CB-5
    S-4
    ST-3

    Thats 46...leaving 7 more spots...they aren't going to use half of those to fill up 7 WR spots
    On offense the questions will be: 2 or 3 QBs; 3 or 4 RBs; 8 or 9 O-Linemen; 3 or 4 TEs? It sounds like they will keep the 1 FB and, like you, I doubt if there will be more than 6 WRs. We have no idea how much McCoy plans to go tight, 2 back, Single Back, 3/4 WR, Empty. That has a bearing on depth.

    On defense, a general rule of thumb for the three groups is two deep + 1: D-Line = 7; Backers = 9; DBs = 9. If they go just two deep at one position group, they can go deeper at another. Time will tell.

    And if the team is thinking 5 max, he would still be correct by saying 6 max. He is saying that the team will not take anything more than 6. He isn't saying it can't be less than 6. Because 5<6. Just so you know...

    Yes and no. We have a lot of guards in the mix. The addition of Barbre, the versatility of McGovernor, I just felt Schofield wasn't in a stable place. But it is surprising that a 16 game starter from last year has fallen to 3rd team.

    This is the last year of his contract. His time is up.

    Man that would be sad to see Taylor go. He was my favorite receiver after DT and Sanders. But receivers who get TD's in this league get picked up, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign somewhere soon. He may claim that 3rd spot after preseason though, so who knows

    I remember Brock Olivo recently talking about how valuable Fowler and Latimer are to special teams, and both were mentioned as potential captains for this season. Early indications of the odd man out at WR do seem to be Taylor. That said, I think he's capable of out-performing others during the preseason.

    To me, the biggest surprise is that Carlos Henderson, our 3rd rounder this year, is close to the bottom on the WR chart. I don't know what Elway will choose to do with him if he doesn't move up. I can't tell you the last time the Broncos cut a 3rd rounder in his first year.

    I think he's pretty much guaranteed to make the team based off his draft position alone. I wouldn't be surprised to see 7 WRs make the final 53 man roster.
