In a couple areas of special teams, the Broncos are all set. PK Matt Prater was solid in 2011, connecting on 76 percent of his field-goal attempts, including three from further than 50 yards. P Britton Colquitt had a strong 40.2 net average on 101 punts, and turned into a strong field-position weapon with 33 placed inside the 20. The coverage teams were pretty solid, allowing only one return touchdown all season. However, upgrades in both kickoff and punt returns will be a must this offseason. With Eddie Royal set to hit free agency, the team will need a primary punt returner. Kickoff returns also should be addressed, as the team's best returner on the current roster, Eric Decker, is expected to see a larger role as a wide receiver in 2012. With Denver needing running backs, receivers and cornerbacks in the draft, finding a player who also can be a return specialist would make sense for the organization.
