The football season is upon us Broncos Country. With the rest of the team reporting to Dove Valley Thursday and training camp getting underway on Friday, the Denver Broncos are looking to begin another quest towards the Lombardi Trophy.

The coaching staff will begin to see what each of the 89 men on the active roster have to offer to the Denver Broncos. For Gary Kubiak and company, the roster battles will be very competitive. I believe that this will perhaps be the most competitive training camp that I have seen in recent history.

Some of the most interesting roster battles will take place on the offensive line as well as the defensive line. Players like Ty Sambrailo, Michael Schofield, and Matt Paradis are among those who will be competing for a starting job on the Denver Broncos roster. Others like the undrafted free agents Jordan Taylor and Dillion Day will be competing for a spot on the roster.

There is no question that the Broncos have a lot of talent on the roster. However, the coaching staff can only pick 53 players and ten practice squad players. So, let us get into predicting the final roster pre-training camp. Note that starters will be in bold.

Quarterback (2)

Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler

There is no doubt that Peyton Manning will be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. That is a given. What I struggled with when it came to this position is if the Broncos should carry two or three quarterbacks. For this prediction, I will stick with two. Brock Osweiler is starting to come into his own, so there is no question that he will become the backup.

The one thing to look out for in this position is who gets the practice squad spot. Right now, it is up for grabs between Zac Dysert and Trevor Siemian. I believe that due to his injury recovery and Dysert’s experience, Trevor Siemian will be the odd man out.
