The Denver Broncos’ quarterback competition hasn’t received much attention this offseason. Thanks to Demaryius Thomas, we finally have some type of gauge on what’s going on in Denver.
Thomas had good things to say about both Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, and hopes that the team will decide on a starter a week and a half into training camp. Trevor been speaking up more than Paxton, Thomas said. You know, Paxton’s still young, and Trevor played a lot more last year. They both had their up and down days.
Broncos can be Super Bowl contenders again if their offense shows more life
It’s hype week.
What exactly is this loosely conceived theme that obviously escaped the attention of the company’s burgeoning ranks of senior management? All this week, our network of 32 team sites and the NFL staff here at SB Nation dot com will feature a series of about an amazing collection of players who are going to dazzle us this year on and off the field.
You can find all of these posts collected here. Keep checking back, because we’ll be adding more as the week continues.
Chidobe Awuzie is a rangy cornerback with great tackling skills, but his pedestrian interception numbers could keep voters from recognizing him. Enter Charlton, who showed strong improvement throughout his college career before landing as Dallas’s first-round pick this spring. At 6’6 and 280 pounds, he’s a beast who can use that leverage to confuse blockers and attack quarterbacks.
JuJu Smith-Schuster has the talent to thrive in the NFL, but as a rookie, he’ll be staring up the depth chart at Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and Sammie Coates. As a result, Watt appears the most likely candidate to make a splash in 2017. He’s got name value thanks to older brother J.J., but his resume at the University of Wisconsin paints him as a high-level pass rusher 11.5 sacks in his lone season as a starter last year.
