Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsGoing into the 2019 draft most around Broncos Country were dismayed to see John Elway pass on taking a pure off ball linebacker. Most around the league see it as one of the biggest holes on this year’s roster. That may not be the case. Something I’ve noticed over my years following the NFL is how short the memory of the draft community seems to be. While this year’s Broncos don’t have a flashy first round backer like Devin Bush, it was merely one year ago Elway drafted two linebackers. Everyone who bleeds orange and blue knows about Josey Jewell, the 2018 4th round pick slated to start next to Todd Davis. Less have kept up with the 2018 6th round pick out of Washington: Keishawn Bierria. After winning a roster spot out of camp a year ago, Bierria played in every game on the schedule in 2018. He finished with 5 tackles, but played over 65% of all special teams snaps, and 311 total. The goodReliable special teams contributorPlays beyond his athleticism. Reads quickly and hustle is apparent. Multiyear starter at Washington.Working in Bierria’s favor is that the Broncos did not spend high draft picks on another rookie. Justin Hollins may play some inside backer in addition to his outside work, but the linebacker room has space for the 2nd year pro to make an impression. Additionally, given the importance of special teams contributions for players closer to the back half of the roster Bierria’s experience there his rookie season could give him an advantage over rookies such as Joe Dineen, Malik Reed, and Josh Watson.Bierria was a valuable special teams player as a rookie. The badHe only played 18 snaps on defense last year. Foot speed is a notable weakness of his. Ran a 4.79 40 coming out of Washington.Lateral mobility and quickness are also issues. Isn’t big for his position. Upside may be limited to special teams. Coming out of the 2018 draft Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller had this to say:It really sums up what Bierria looks like a year into his NFL career. The snaps he played on defense were mostly clean ups at the end of the blowout win over the Arizona Cardinals and the final snaps of the season. One thing that really helps him make the team last year is that the Broncos carried so many linebackers. Vance Joseph prioritized players who could contribute on special teams, even if it meant holding onto players with limited value to the offense or defense. Will Vic Fangio do the same?Keishawn Bierria’s roster status with the BroncosI suspect Bierria has to prove he’s a significantly better special teams player than his competitors to have a shot to stick to the roster in 2019. He’ll also need to prove he can serve as a valuable backup player behind Davis and Jewell to stick to the roster. One thing that helps his cause is that the new defense does not place near as much man coverage responsibility on the linebackers Dalton Risner Denver Broncos Jersey , so his limited athleticism won’t be such a liability. Even then, he has his work cut out for him with 4 new players competing for time at his position group. One of Bierria’s more significant defensive snaps of 2018. The Broncos have hired Vic Fangio as head coach and the move was met with overwhelming positivity from Denver fans. Though there are still a few dissenters, the general reaction has been of excitement, relief and renewed trust in John Elway and the Colorado football team. I feel the same...mostly...but the whole thing has made me question why so many of these hard-to-please fans are happy with this decision and I think it boils down to four different possibilities. Possibility #1fans love badass coachesVic Fangio has been called - by players, not just by crazy podcasters like me - an “evil genius” and he is well known for his no-nonsense style of coaching. Though he’s seemingly famous for speaking his mind and being “old-fashioned”, he is also beloved by his players and that speaks a lot for someone who hasn’t managed to get a head coaching job after 30+ years working on the sidelines of the NFL. People like this type of coach because it’s somewhat theatrical and romantic and seems like someone who will be fun to watch from afar to see his badassery while in charge of their team. Though he has exactly as much experience as a head coach as Vance Joseph did when he was hired two years ago, with age comes wisdom and with toughness comesbetter play on the field. Right?Possibility #2 fans are happy that John Elway hired an unconventional coachJohn Elway, though just three years removed from leading his team to a Super Bowl victory, has of late been precariously perched atop the monstrously huge pedestal upon which he was deservedly placed 20 years ago.Part of the negativity towards the GOAT has stemmed from him seemingly hiring his buddies to fill important roles as well as the rumor that he only hires “yes men” to do his bidding. No matter how ridiculous and untrue the rumors, these things settle into the subconscious of a fanbase and squeeze little inklings of doubt into the forefront of the group-think. This hire throws all of those rumors out the window and especially since Fangio, someone who seems to be the opposite of a “yes man” Dalton Risner Jersey 2019 , was hired instead of Mike Munchak who lives at least on the edge of Buddiesville in Elwayland. This hire shows fans that Elway is willing to do anything and everything to move this franchise forward. #7 saw greatness in a man whose personality has perhaps cost him head coaching jobs in the past and made the difficult decision to take a risk on an older, possibly pain-in-the-butt coach. This is an exciting twist in the saga of Elway as GM and though he still favors his buddies (hello Gary Kubiak), we are willing to look past that after this awesomely different hire. Possibility #3 fans believe Fangio to have been a great coaching candidateThough Vic Fangio had never been given his chance to lead a team in his many years of NFL service, his history on the defensive side of the ball and the respect that he consistently receives from his players, is enough to prove him to be a fantastic hire by John Elway. He has led some of the best defenses in the past 10 years both in San Francisco and Chicago and bringing him in to direct and orchestrate the Orange Rush is an idea - soon to be reality - that is beyond drool worthy. Players can’t stop talking about his leadership skills and how genuine and good a guy he is both on and off the field and his gravitas and confidence will be a great change from the last two seasons in Denver.Many pundits and fans alike believe that an offense like those of the Chiefs or Rams is the future of the NFL and that teams must conform or fail. John Elway and company are making a statement to the rest of the league that a dominant defense, a solid offense led by a QB who doesn’t make mistakes and a respected group of coaches is the counter-punch that will throw KC on its back and beg for mercy over the next four or five years. Possibility #4 fans are only happy because it was a pathetic group of candidates and Fangio is the most interesting - they aren’t happyThis is just a more negative approach to option #2 and there isn’t much more to say past the headline. There is little argument that the list of candidates was far from spectacular and though after some research many started to like Fangio, the excitement is almost a middle digit at what this franchise and team have become. Personally, I like the hire and I will be extremely excited to see what Elway, Fangio and Kubiak put on the field in 2019 and beyond. Why do you think most everyone is so happy about the hire?
