  • Broncos' Justin Simmons: Elevates play in 2018

    Simmons logged 97 tackles, four passes defended and three interceptions over 16 games in 2018.

    Simmons was Denver's ironman in 2018, playing all 1,077 defensive snaps during the Broncos' season after having missed three games due to injury during each of his first two NFL seasons. The 25-year-old came on strong in his third year, and set career highs in terms of tackles and interceptions. Simmons was forced to showcase his versatility due to both Darian Stewart and Chris Harris missing multiple games, and thrived in the slot as well as playing outside against tight ends, in addition to his usual free safety role. He's signed with the Broncos through 2019, and on track to return as a starter under new head coach Vic Fangio.

  • Broncos' Bradley Chubb: Performs as advertised

    Chubb generated 60 tackles, 12 sacks and two forced fumbles over 16 games in 2018.

    Arguably the brightest storyline amid a disappointing season for Denver was that the Broncos defense now has one of the best pass-rushing tandems in the league considering how fearsome Chubb and seven-time Pro-Bowler Von Miller proved to be in their first season together. Combining for 26.5 sacks, the pair figures to be a menace for opposing backfields for years to come -- and Miller's mere presence figures to make it difficult for offenses to key on the 22-year-old Chubb. Add in the fact that the defense figures to improve under new head coach Vic Fangio -- who coordinated the league's top scoring defense in Chicago last season -- and Chubb could conceivably build upon his rookie-year stat line in 2019.

  • Broncos' Von Miller: Continues productive ways

    Miller produced 48 tackles, 14.5 sacks, three pass breakups, one interception, four forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries over 16 games in 2018.

    Despite the underwhelming collective performance of the Broncos defense, Miller had himself another strong season en route to Pro Bowl and second-team All-Pro honors -- which marks the seventh time in eight career seasons in which Miller has been both nominated to the Pro Bowl and made either first- or second-team All-Pro. Miller now begins his foray into his 30s in 2019, but there's no reason to think he's slowing down anytime soon. In fact, there's optimism for Miller to build upon his 2018 campaign with a new head coach in town, Vic Fangio, who coordinated the league's top scoring defense with Chicago this past season.

  • Broncos' Todd Davis: Posts career high in tackles

    Davis had 114 tackles, 0.5 sacks, seven passes defended and one interception across 16 games in 2018.

    Davis led the Broncos defense in tackles, and managed to return his sole interception for a touchdown. The 26-year-old elevated his play to a new level during his fifth NFL season, coming on as an anchor in Denver's stellar linebacker corps. Davis is signed with the Broncos through 2020, and will look to maintain his quality play under new head coach Vic Fangio.

  • Broncos' Chris Harris: Doesn't disappoint in 2018

    Harris produced 49 tackles, one sack and 10 pass breakups -- including three interceptions with one touchdown -- over 12 games in 2018.

    It was a disappointing year for the Broncos defense, but Harris remained a star before a broken leg ended his season Week 13. In fact, the three-time Pro Bowler was on pace to set career highs in both tackles and interceptions prior to going down. The 29-year-old was medically cleared before the season ended and shouldn't be limited in any way during the team's first offseason under new head coach Vic Fangio, who coordinated the league's top scoring defense with Chicago in 2018.
