2022 NFL Power Rankings: Denver Broncos

Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Denver Broncos rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-Super Bowl 56 roundup for the Broncos in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 21

Offseason in three or fewer words: Who's the quarterback?

The Broncos have hired their fifth different head coach in the past seven years, replaced their offensive coordinator for the fifth time since 2017 and have -- again -- announced a new day with new energy and new attention to detail, enthusiasm and football acumen. And by all accounts Nathaniel Hackett is ready for the job, works well with young players and the Broncos have a roster with plenty of youthful talent. But the quarterback position remains an enormous question mark, and even if the Broncos pull off the offseason blockbuster for Aaron Rodgers, it still will not be the long-term solution at the position the team hasn't had since John Elway arrived in 1983. -- Jeff Legwold

NFL.com -- Rank: 23

New offseason, same burning question for the Broncos. Who is the quarterback? A trade for Aaron Rodgers would be a seismic addition on the level of Peyton Manning a decade earlier, but that still feels like something of a pipe dream, even with former Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett now in the big chair in Denver. At some point, the Broncos need to get this figured out. They've churned through offensive coordinators and head coaches with relentless intensity since their Super Bowl 50 win. It's time to restore some stability to the game's most important position.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 19

They have a new coach in Nathaniel Hackett. Now they have to figure out who plays quarterback and whether it can be Aaron Rodgers.

USA Today -- Rank: 23

They're seeking a new owner and new quarterback, a duo that will define a talented roster's short- and long-term forecasts.

The Athletic -- Rank: 23

The Broncos once again finished in last place in the AFC West and out of the playoffs. That means they -- once again -- face massive changes this offseason. The first move is complete, with Nathaniel Hackett replacing Vic Fangio, who was fired as coach after three seasons. But what comes next might be even more important as Denver continues to search for a long-term starting quarterback. Could that be Aaron Rodgers? Hackett was Green Bay's offensive coordinator for the past three seasons, and that connection will give Broncos fans hope for at least the next few weeks.
