4. Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos do not have a lot of holes on the roster and Russell Wilson fixes the biggest issue that the team had. Wilson's numbers have not been as good in recent years and it does appear that he is on his way down as a pro but he is still an elite quarterback.

The one concern for the Broncos is the depth of the roster. Denver has some serious blue-chippers in important areas of the roster but they lack quality depth as a whole. With less draft capital in 2022, that could come back to bite.

There is a reality where the Broncos don't deal with many injuries and guys like Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy have great years and they are playing in the Super Bowl. However, there is also a reality where 3-4 injuries at key spots in the season derail the team and they finish third in the division.

3. Cleveland Browns

Deshaun Watson fixed the issues that the Cleveland Browns have at the quarterback roster and I like their overall roster talent and depth more so than the Broncos. Granted, Watson may not actually play all 17 games, but from a football standpoint, it is impossible to deny their talent.

Watson has a no. 1 weapon in Amari Cooper and more reinforcements are likely on the way with speculation of Odell Beckham Jr. even coming back to Cleveland. The team has a fantastic offensive line, a really talented tight end room and perhaps the best running back duo in the entire league.

Cleveland has a solid defense as well with Defensive Player of the Year candidate Myles Garrett, standout rising star Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and a talented secondary to boot. This is the most talented Browns team that the franchise has fielded in quite some time — perhaps ever.
