Denver Broncos fans are in for a treat now that the team has Pro Bowl quarterback Russell Wilson.

This position was considered their Achilles heel for years with Drew Lock and Teddy Bridgewater taking turns leading the team.

However, none of them could lead the talented team to the playoffs.

Football pundits are critical that the team’s receiving trio of Tim Patrick, Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy are underperforming with who they have under centre.

With Wilson on board, they expect a more potent attack given his league experience.

The Broncos hope the veteran quarterback helps the team’s offense reach its full potential.

If this happens the rest of the league should be warned as they are capable of dominating.

But trading for Wilson didn’t come cheap because the Broncos gave away a bunch of picks and players.

Denver traded their first-, third-, and fifth-round picks in the 2022 draft, as well as their first- and second-round picks in 2023.

The Broncos also dropped Lock, Shelby Harris and Noah Fant in Seattle.

That trade meant Denver didn’t have a pick until the 64th overall selection in this year’s draft.

To entertain them in the meantime, Pro Football Focus writer Ari Meirov shared what the Broncos did when the Seahawks were on the clock.

Instead of making a pick, the Broncos front office played Wilson highlights instead.

To which they reacted, “very good choice”.

Writing a requirement a year too late

Meanwhile, the Seahawks used the selection Denver gave them to draft offensive tackle Charles Cross.

Wilson had asked the Seattle front office that improving the offensive line was a must.

It became a dire need after the Los Angeles Rams dominated Wilson’s protection to defeat the Seahawks in their 2020 Wild Card meeting.

With Wilson gone, the Seahawks finally decided to draft an offensive tackle.

Cross could still protect the team’s starter.

However, the impact might not be the same as when Wilson was there.
