RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Will get the opportunity to win a starting defensive end job despite his relatively disappointing time in Denver throughout his career. If Von Miller is suspended for the first four games of the season, Ayers will be heavily relied upon to pressure the quarterback.

2012

Will start at defensive end, although he still hasn't become the pass rusher that the Broncos expected him to be when they drafted him 18th overall in 2009. If opposing teams have to double Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller, Ayers could get his chances at the quarterback.

2011

Ayers will move back to defensive end this season, the position he played in college where he had his biggest impact. With new head coach John Fox's defensive makeover, Ayers should have more chances to rush the quarterback, especially with 2009 NFL sack leader Elvis Dumervil back on the field.

2010

Ayers was expected to have an impact for the Broncos after he was selected in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft, but he was relatively disappointing throughout the season. More is expected of him in 2010 and although he has had some issues with the coaching staff during preseason workouts, he has plenty of time to establish himself as a solid pass rusher in Denver.

2009

Ayers will be asked to provide explosiveness from the outside and could provide a good number of sacks throughout the season. The Broncos used the 18th pick in the 2009 Draft on the former Tennessee Volunteer specifically to increase the talent along the defensive line, one that struggled mightily in 2008. He should get plenty of reps on the field may even be put on the field as a linebacker to increase his sack opportunities.
