Day seven is in the books and there were continue pieces of the Denver Broncos emerging as we move on to day eight on Sunday…

The Denver Broncos’ depth at wide receiver seems to have generated the most buzz at Training Camp, but some could say that’s due largely to the quarterback position.

One Denver Broncos fan I spoke with today said Case Keenum appears to already have hit another gear and the signs are there. If the quarterback position is solved as evidenced in the early days of Training Camp, everything else falls into place.

As such, the trio of Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas, and Courtland Sutton are on track to be the top formation for the Broncos. The Broncos need immediate impact players from day one of the preseason to the start of the regular season.

Since day one of OTAs, there’s not been one player more dominant than Sutton. He is asserting himself at the perfect time, as the Broncos needed to bolster their wide receiver depth.

One player not garnering enough attention is Jamal Carter on the defense. Carter is, in a lot of ways, similar to Will Parks and Su’a Cravens. He is capable of playing in the box becoming that dime linebacker.

He plays with his hair on fire. For a team searching to add punch on their second and third unit, Carter is the ideal guy the Broncos are looking for.

The last Broncos player that stood out is none other than “The Outlaw,” Josey Jewell.

Jewell dealt with a slight hamstring injury according to Vance Joseph earlier in the week. Jewell returned to the team and hopped on the defensive saddle for the Denver Broncos.

Inside linebacker is a weak spot on the defense not counting Brandon Marshall. The team signed Todd Davis to his extension, but that will not keep Denver from playing the best player alongside Marshall.

Let’s go a little more in-depth, looking at quarterback, wide receiver, defensive back, and linebacker.
