Day Nine: Broncos Training Camp Observations
Day nine of Broncos Training Camp left ten players resting for a full day of practice except Virgil Green would participate in two-point conversion drills without a helmet on.
Mark Sanchez has had a rough week. Reps with the number one offense are good for any quarterback, but performing better than the others puts him over the top. If he controls the line of scrimmage and does not turn the ball over, then he can win the job. However, for the Broncos to succeed with Sanchez at quarterback they must limit the turnovers and be conservative on offense.
All throughout camp, Shaq Barrett has performed well to catch the of Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller. Miller recently said the coaches have mixed up Barrett and him during Training Camp. Both Barrett and Shane Ray could see their production be much larger, while their defined role may be the same as last year.
Zaire Anderson was one of the camp wonders to make it back to the practice squad last year with the Broncos and now with the loss of Danny Trevathan, can make the 53-man roster at linebacker. Anderson has a bit of a climb to make the starting role to replace Trevathan, but today saw some movement as Anderson practiced with the twos.
With the two wide receivers sitting down today, Bennie Fowler decided to take advantage of the opportunity as the number one receiver in Training Camp. Fowler established himself as the true number three wide out on the roster. Broncos have enjoyed extraordinary depth at this position. It could be the deepest on the roster next to the pass rush of Von Miller and company.
