The Denver Broncos were one of the most dominating teams in football with their 13-3 record behind the amazing comeback season of quarterback Peyton Manning.
Now with a season with John Elway and the Broncos behind him, here is the rookie class and new top notch running back Manning has to work with to get to Super Bowl XLVIII next February in his brother's home stadium in New York.

The Broncos were one of the top teams in the league last season with only their rushing attack ranking outside the top 5 teams in the league.
While Manning handled his load on the offense; while running backs Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno had their seasons cut short with injuries once again. To solve his running back woes this season Elway drafted Montee Ball and signed C.J. Anderson to give him plenty of depth in the rushing attack.
The only other issue Elway and the the Broncos were facing was replacing defensive end Elvis Dumervil after accidentally releasing him earlier this year.
Good thing the Broncos are famous for discovering talent amongst free agents with defensive ends John Youboty and Gary Mason in camp. Both of these players a capable of starting on Sundays when they get their timing down.
From the cornerbacks that Elway added to this Broncos' team this season it's clear that he does not expect All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey to be with the team much longer.
Kayvon Webster and Aaron Hester should use the time they get with Bailey for learning the position he is famous for.
Both of these Webster and Hester have what it takes to become top defensive backs with a little work and effort.
