I know they have Eddie Royal but he seems to be more hit or miss and not targeted much by Tebow
The Broncos drastically need a playmaker threat with speed/mismatch ability.
Thomas might become one, while I think Decker is more of a Ed McCaffrey clone.
That said, I've been saying to myself they need a Percy Harvin type to really make this offense click. Someone Tebow can throw a quick pass to, or option to that can take a 3 yard gain into a 50 yard gain. Its like what the Patriots did to the Broncos, quick pass to Gronkowski, he turns it into 30+ yards. Pass to Hernandez for 7 yards, he turns it into 50 yard gain.
Which is why I think the Broncos should consider a speed RB in the draft, Lamichael James might be the best option. They also need to look at getting a legit receiving threat at TE.
Also, the Broncos need to really start throwing quicker passes/routes. Too often the playcall is for deep, developing routes and Tebow doesn't have time for those.
