The Lead

On Monday, we took a look at the MVP conversation surrounding Drew Lock, who became a media darling since finishing the season 4-1.

But today, we're taking a look at a player who hasn't gotten nearly as much attention.

In an article this week, Bleacher Report's Gary Davenport picked each NFL team's best-kept secret, and linebacker Alexander Johnson got the nod for the Broncos.

Johnson didn't start a game for the Broncos until Week 5 last year - which also happened to be the first defensive snaps of his career - but he took advantage. He started all 12 games to finish the season and recorded 93 tackles, 1.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.

Plus, he unveiled a dinosaur celebration that rivals Lock's Buzz Lightyear routine.

We're excited to see what Johnson has in store for his first full year as a starter.

Below the Fold

The Denver Post's Ryan O'Halloran took a look at how undrafted tackle Hunter Watts could transition from FCS to the NFL.

USA Today's Nate Davis theorized about which football teams would've been good subjects for a Last Dance-style documentary. A Broncos team made the list, but it may not be the one you'd expect.

CBS Sports' Jeff Kerr posited a burning question for each AFC West team.
