Broncos wide receivers coach Kyle Long said he’s still not sure if the Broncos offense will be a top-10 unit in 2015.
“We have a little bit of a learning curve to it,” Long said Wednesday on “The Dan Patrick Show.”
“Obviously, we’re going to do a lot of different things with it.
But I don’t know if it’s going to be top-five or not, and it’s not even out yet.”
We’re going all out.
We’re not going to get it done by the end of the year, but it’s a start.
We’ve got to be aggressive and play as many plays as possible to get that first step on offense.
Long said he expects to have his first full practice of OTAs in early June.
Denver’s offense has been trending downward since the start of training camp.
The Broncos rank 31st in passing yards per game (284.6) and 31st with an average of 17.2 points per game.
The Broncos also rank 25th in rushing yards per contest (106.0) and 20th with an offensive efficiency rating of 101.5.
New offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer has said the Broncos will use more three- and four-receiver sets than in past years.
That could result in more dropbacks, which has been an issue for the Broncos this season.
They ranked 30th in dropbacks (7.4 per game) last season.
The Broncos’ offensive line has been one of the team’s biggest weaknesses.
The offensive line is currently in a state of flux.
Long said the first-year coordinator is hopeful the unit will be in better shape in 2015, but said it’s premature to make an official prediction.
Long also said he doesn’t anticipate the Broncos changing much on defense this season, which could impact the front seven.
The offensive line and secondary are both underachieving.
