    One surprise player to make our final roster.

    I'll start. Mario Fannin. I feel he is ready and hopefully will stay healthy this pre season. I always liked the way he ran in college and I remember last year in pre season, the coaches loved his work ethic and his power. There's a reason why they kept him around so long and I hope this year he proves it. If he stays healthy, (and that's a big IF) I feel he will make our opening season roster. Any takers or other players you think will surprise us all and be on the roster come game 1?

    Fannin seems to be popular here on the boards. I'd like to see him make the team, but idk we are really deep at RB right now.

    I'll take Fannin as well...I've been pulling for him since we got him

    And they must like something if they haven't cut him yet...seriously think about it, how often does a team keep a player who's had two season ending injuries early in camp who they picked up as a UDFA...think about it

    I am going to say Gerell Robinson. 6'4" 222lbs WR

    40-yard dash 4.62 seconds, with a 35-1/2" vertical leap. We drafted him and he spent a year on the practice squad for the Cards and came back. I think the Broncos like his size and if he has improved he may make the team especially if he can play special teams.

    I don't think he's an ideal special teamer at all n not really a Manning type WR

    imo...but I think if he sticks around until Brock/Dysert he'll have success then

    I think he would be a good back up for DT if he were ever to get hurt. He is big and if he has worked on his routes and timing than I think he might fit in well with Manning.

    I think Manase Foketi might be able to get onto the 53.

    Jeremy Beal?

    I think he will have to take Quanterus Smith's spot and then Smith would go to the PS.

    Last season:

    Elvis Dumervil DE
    Robert Ayers DE
    Malik Jackson DE/DT
    Derek Wolfe DT/DE
    Justin Bannan DT
    Sealver Siliga DT
    Mitch Unrein DT
    Kevin Vickerson DT

    Sylvester Williams and Terrance Knighton replace Bannan and Siliga. Either Beal or Smith replaces Dumervil. Shaun Phillips might take a LB spot as Miller's backup and situational DE.

    An alternate version with less DTs in 2013 would be:

    Kevin Vickerson DT
    Sylvester Williams DT
    Terrance Knighton DT
    Derek Wolfe DE/DT
    Robert Ayers DE
    Malik Jackson DE
    Jeremy Beal DE
    Quanterus Smith DE

    Fannin is boo boo, and we have 5 backs that would make it over him.

    I'll go ahead and say Sealver Silga, DT.
