Cara Devingne is entering her 12th season as the first female to wear a “C” on her jersey.
Here’s how you can make the best of your first NFL season.
The 2017 NFL season begins in less than two weeks, and for Devenne, it’s an exciting time.
With a chance to earn her spot on the all-time list for career points, Devennes first year is one that could see her becoming a member of the Hall of Fame.
The first-year running back has been named the 2017 NFL MVP, was named to the Pro Bowl, was an All-Pro selection, and was a first-team All-Rookie team selection.
The next year, she would become the first woman to score 3,000 career points.
But her career as a pro hasn’t been smooth sailing, and her first-half performance against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3 of the 2017 season was considered a letdown.
Devenney scored four touchdowns in just eight carries for a career-low 13 yards.
While her rushing total dipped to 461 yards and six touchdowns, the second half saw Devennoes offense struggle to produce on offense.
Develynns success as a receiver was hampered by a combination of injuries and a lack of talent in the passing game, and the Saints defense forced Devenneys first career interception in Week 10.
With Devennenoes struggles, it would have been a tough pill to swallow to watch Devens rookie campaign unfold.
That all changed with the emergence of a young quarterback.
With the Patriots quarterback facing a critical road test against the Denver Broncos, Deveney’s career could be at an all-new level.
The two-time NFL Offensive Player of the Year finished the year by completing 65.7 percent of his passes, the fourth-highest completion percentage in the league, while ranking second in the NFL in yards per attempt.
He finished his career by being named the MVP, All-Defensive Team, Offensive Player-of-the-Year, and Offensive Player and has also been selected to the Super Bowl XXIV team.
However, despite all of Deven’s success, he still struggles in the pocket, as he finished with a passer rating of 101.3 in his final two games of the season, while throwing just six touchdowns and no interceptions.
Devinnes success as an NFL quarterback is a bit of a mystery.
While he’s made his name as a pass-catcher, Devingnes overall game is quite a bit different than the other quarterbacks in the game.
He is a pass rusher, and while he is not as explosive as some of the other NFL passers, Devedne has proven to be very good at moving around the pocket and finding openings for himself.
With his versatility, Devers ability to play any position, and his willingness to take on blockers in the backfield, Devernes ability to make plays off the ball could make him a viable option for the 2017 Broncos offense.
How to build a roster that’s ready to win in the playoffs?
It’s no secret that the Denver defense was the Broncos most productive unit last season.
The unit held opponents to just 39 points, the fewest points allowed by a team in the entire NFL.
While the unit was able to stop the run a little better than it did last season, the unit also struggled to stop any other type of offense.
The Broncos allowed just 49 yards per game on the ground, the lowest figure in the AFC, and allowed the second fewest yards per carry (4.5).
That’s not the only weakness that the Broncos defense had, as the unit allowed a whopping 631 yards of offense, the third-most in the conference, behind only the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals.
As such, the Broncos could use some help in the defensive backfield.
The Denver secondary is going to need to be a major upgrade in the coming season.
DeVondny’s emergence has been a boon to the Denver secondary, as his presence in the secondary helped keep the Denver offense in the hunt.
He started the season as a third safety and quickly transitioned into a starting safety position.
After Devenniems rookie season, it looks like he will have an even bigger role moving forward.
With defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio’s new scheme, the secondary will be a much different team.
This new scheme will allow the Denver linebackers to play more man-to-man, while the Broncos corners will be playing more zone.
This means that the secondary should be more of a pass rush-oriented unit, as opposed to a Cover 2-oriented defense.
As a result, the Denver defensive line could see some of their biggest contributions come in the front four.
The new defensive front will feature two starting corners and two starting safeties.
While both of the corners will play a large role on the outside
