    Shannon Sharpe, because no other Bronco TE compares. Champ Bailey, it would be nice to have a couple elite cornerbacks again, assuming we were keeping Chris Harris Jr.

        FYI from 1973 through 1978, Riley Odoms was pretty much Denver's leading receiver. He was a great blocker, too.

          Terrell Davis and Al Wilson. OR, Shannon Sharp and Al Wilson.

            It would have to be Manning and TD. Our defense is good enough to win championships but the offense lacks the it factor.
            Shannon Sharpe would be a strong asset but TD was the ultimate difference maker. Had career prime TD been on the team for SB43, then Seahawks could not have made us non-dimensional, and we would have won.

            While Manning will always be a hired gun and not a real Bronco to me, he was consistently better than Elway.
            We have had many great players but PM & TD are above them in impact.

              I’d say he was a true bronco! He simply brought 4 historical seasons to the team which is huge!

              KC fans could argue that Neil Smith wasn’t a true broncos but he helped win two rings in denver, far more than he ever had in KC therefore I’d say even he was a true bronco.

                Only two? I want to shore up the trenches so Zimmerman and Pryce.

                  Well the fans appreciate what he did for us, he's been mentioned a few times in this thread. He only played eight seasons and once medically-cleared after his injury, chose to retire instead of playing for the Lions or Browns at League minimum.

                    Honestly IMO Al Wilson was a HoF caliber player. Nothing jarring in his individual statistics that jump off the page but watching him was a different story. He was just always in the right place to make a play whether for himself or for someone else. He led some highly rated defenses but there was very little talent around him and that was highlighted by how our run defense became one of if not the worst ever in league history after his injury.

                    But I think 2 plays influenced how the rest of the NFL fan base viewed him. The Marvin Harrison TD in the playoffs which should’ve been called down as he gave himself up by not getting up immediately. And then the Dante Hall punt return where Hall made it look like he was playing against a high school team

                      Absolutely!

                        Fair opinion! It helped that he retired a Bronco. Nevertheless, the Colt stuff is still what he is most known for, irrespective that he essentially had as much success in the four years in Denver as he had as a Colt.

                          Either like Elway as GM or a broadcaster like McCaffrey

                            Since we only get to choose two, Champ and as much as I like Lock, probably Elway.

                              Amen! Gradishar was a tackling machine, never missed a game in ten years and was phenomenal on the goal line!

                                Yup, Gradishar is a no brainer and fills a HUGE gap in the current team. The next most obvious is taking the sure thing of Elway/Manning vs Lock. I'd take prime Elway by a hair due to the dual threat.

                                Outside of that... Champ and Zimmerman are in the all time GOATs at their position discussions. Probably a nod to Zimmerman as our current CB stable is closer to Champ than Bolles is to Zimmerman and LT is slightly more important position.
