The Denver Broncos just completed their OTAs and minicamp and now are focused on getting ready for training camp. The team is looking to make it back-to-back Super Bowl appearances for the first time since 1997-98 when they won back-to-back championships. Here are five questions that the franchise must answer during camp.

The Broncos are looking to rebuild their offensive line that was absolutely punished during last year's Super Bowl loss. Most of the pieces are in place, but an interesting battle at right tackle has emerged. Chris Clark is the starter, but he is getting some competition from Winston Justice and perhaps Michael Schofield could be in that discussion as well. Training camp will be the best way we can find out.

Nate Irving has not had a fulfilling career so far and is being questioned as to if he is expendable going forward. This could also be the case since the Broncos drafted two linebackers and added another as an UDFA. Lamin Barrow and Corey Nelson could find themselves battling for the spot if Irving doesn't step up. Shaquil Barrett could also be in the mix. Irving needs to prove that he deserves the starting MLB position.

Von Miller and Chris Harris both suffered season-ending ACL injuries late in the season. Miller suffered his during the Week 16 matchup with the Houston Texans and Chris Harris had a slight ACL injury in the divisional round of the playoffs. There are rumors that Miller may not be ready by Week 1 and Chris Harris is on track as well. It will be interesting to see how the Broncos handle it going into training camp.

The Broncos find themselves with a great opportunity to lock up Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas to longer deals before they become free agents at the end of the 2014 season. Reports have surfaced that Demaryius was offered a five-year deal while they still await one for Julius. Both players are not concerned about that aspect now, but if the team can lock them up before the season, they will have one less thing to worry about.

It is one thing to be beaten in the Super Bowl, but a 35-point loss was the second-worst Super Bowl loss the franchise suffered in history. And history does not always favor the runner-up in the NFL. But the Broncos have gotten better every single year since John Fox took over, and you can bet they are going to come back even stronger.
