» Opportunity beckons for Michael Schofield

Mar 31, 2015 - 10:36 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
He worked out extensively in Boston, the home base of his girlfriend, Kendall Coyne, a member of last year's silver-medal winning USA women's hockey team -- but also the city of strength and conditioning guru Mike Boyle. He spent two weeks in San Diego this month receiving personal sessions with an offensive line coach.

And now the Broncos' 2014 third-round selection hopes he will ascend on the depth chart after a frustrating rookie season in which he was inactive for all 16 regular-season games and the playoff loss to the Colts.

Schofield's lack of game action in 2014 did not dull the team's confidence in him, as Head Coach Gary Kubiak and Executive Vice President/General Manager John Elway have emphasized his potential role in a revamped offensive line.

» No one wants Wes Welker, the anti-Chris Borland

Mar 31, 2015 - 12:02 AM - by OrangeHoof
http://nypost.com/2015/03/18/no-one-...chris-borland/

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Chris Borland walked away from the NFL at the age of 24 for fear of head injuries, despite not having a diagnosed concussion for a decade. And then thereís Wes Welker, the anti-Borland, a wideout with a disturbing array of concussions who isnít ready to quit. ďAs long as Iíve recovered the right way and everything like that, Iím ready to go,Ē Welker told ESPN in December. ďI really donít see any problem with it.íí
But apparently the rest of the NFL sees what Welker doesnít. Pro Football Talk reported the receiver has ďgenerated no buzzĒ on the free-agent market. Welker, who will turn 34 in May, is a shadow of the player he once was after sustaining three concussions in a 10-month span.
LOL. The anti-Borland.

» Ziggy's Final 2015 NFL Mock Draft

Mar 30, 2015 - 11:27 PM - by Ziggy
ROUND 1



T Jake Fisher- 6'6 306. Fisher is listed as a 2nd round prospect on most mock drafts. Don't pay any attention to that. When it's all said and done, I think he's the #1 tackle to come out of this draft. Fisher can step right in at right tackle for a year or two, and slide over to the left side when Ryan Clady leaves. He's the most athletic tackle in this draft, and fits the ZBS to a tee. His strengths are his versatility, leadership, nastiness, and run blocking. I've already profiled him, so if you want more info on him, click on this:
http://img.bleacherreport.net/img/sl...630&h=420&q=75



ROUND 2



G Ali Marpet- 6'4 307. Marpet is a small school prospect that began to open the scouts eyes at the senior bowl. He's the most athletic guard in this draft. See a pattern forming? Marpet was the only offensive lineman at the combine to run a sub 5.0 40 yard dash. He finished 2nd in the 3 cone drill and 2nd in the 20 yard shuttle behind only Jake Fisher. Marpet was a tackle in college, but was moved to guard at senior bowl week and thrived there. He looks like a natural guard at the NFL level, and handled both power and speed rushers. If not for the fact that he played for a division III college, he'd be a first round prospect. He uses his hands well, keeps a low center of... [Read More]

» Thomas to skip Broncos' offseason program

Mar 30, 2015 - 10:25 PM - by ShaneFalco
Assigned the $12.823 million franchise tag early this month, Demaryius Thomas plans to treat this offseason differently.

Thomas told ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold on Monday that he will not participate in Peyton Manning's annual Duke University passing academy or join Denver Broncos teammates for the offseason program.

» Fanspeak Mock - Who showed up at 28?

Mar 30, 2015 - 11:51 AM - by OrangeHoof
I did a mock at Fanspeak this morning using the CBS Sports big board. I'm expecting the regular choices when whose name appears as still on the board? - Kevin White, WR, WVU.

I tried to trade down but couldn't find an acceptable deal so I went ahead and took him. OK, I don't see WR as a big need, particularly to use a first-rounder on, but a consensus Top 10 pick dropping to 28 is just too good to overlook.

What it did was make me rethink this draft and the post-Manning future. I took ILB Denzel Perryman with the second-rounder and then realized Bryce Petty was still there at 3-28. Petty strikes me as more of a Kubiak QB than Osweiler.

In the 4th, I took an undersized TE I hope we get if we don't draft Max Williams. Then filled out the rest of the draft with OL help and roster depth.

I don't think there's a chance in hell that Kevin White really falls to #28 but it did get me thinking that maybe this upcoming draft should be about transitioning to a Kubiak team from a Manning team.

» Latimer preparing to take himself to the next level

Mar 27, 2015 - 8:45 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- If you saw Cody Latimer at last summer's training camp practices or scrimmages, you know he's no stranger to making big leaps.

He'll be expected to make another big jump this season, as Head Coach Gary Kubiak said earlier in the week: "He showed a lot of flashes from me watching him in practice. A lot of times being a rookie can be overwhelming. I think as the year went on he just showed that heís got a lot of skill. I think itís time for him to make a big jump, not just a little jump."

Questions abound, but the former second-round pick says he's prepared to take on a bigger load in 2015.

"I feel like Iím ready, especially coming in a new offense, everybody gets a clean slate so weíre all starting from Day 1, and itíll be exciting," he said. "I get to work with Peyton coming up soon, so heíll be able to get me more into the offense and getting my learning curve, taking it to the next level."

» Race will be fierce among the Denver Broncos' running backs for top spot

Mar 27, 2015 - 4:28 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- At a time when the Denver Broncos have promised to run the ball more -- and even better than they did last season -- the competition for those carries will likely be the fiercest battle for playing time on the roster.

While some uncertainty arrives with any new coaching staff, the offense that coach Gary Kubiak runs has consistently churned out 1,000-yard rushers.

"Who is going to be the bell cow?" Kubiak asked earlier this week at the NFL's annual owners meeting in Phoenix. "Who is going to be a three-down player? They have to sort that out."

» Update of Broncos' salary cap status

Mar 27, 2015 - 4:15 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Denver Broncos will keep their eyes open on the still-available free agents, but as they move toward the draft, their salary cap situation remains slightly snug with at least some room to work.

With about $4 million in functional cap space -- executive vice president of football operations/general manager John Elway consistently has said "I donít like to work right at the nub, you need room to cover what happens" -- the Broncos can make 10 selections in the draft without any roster adjustments.

As of Friday afternoon, the NFL Players Association puts the Broncos' cap at $10.895 million. The salary cap for each team this season is $143.28 million plus any additional rollover of cap space from last season; that amount varies team-to-team and the Broncos had $5.87 million of rollover cap space.

» Mel Kiper Jr. breaks down Broncos' draft objectives

Mar 26, 2015 - 5:09 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
With the initial waves of free agency behind us, ESPN NFL Draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. said he expects the Broncos' draft strategy for their first picks to be unchanged.

"I think when you look at what they need right now, and I think itís still the same thing going in," Kiper said on Thursday in a conference call with NFL media. "You think about the offensive line, you think about an inside linebacker, another receiving entity, so I would say offensive line or linebacker at that particular point for the Broncos would make a lot of sense."

Noting the additions of tight end Owen Daniels, defensive lineman Vance Walker, safety Darian Stewart and guard Shelley Smith, Kiper said the number one priority for Denver looks to be offensive line for their first-round pick at 28th overall.

In his latest mock draft, dated March 5, Kiper projected the Broncos to pick Florida State offensive lineman Cameron Erving, but he thought a few other prospects could fit the Broncos' roster with their first-round pick.

» Manning's Place May be on the Bench -- How's That for Click-bait?

Mar 25, 2015 - 1:03 PM - by NightTrainLayne
Blame the Post, I didn't come up with the headline.

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci...e-may-be-bench

Still, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak has held preliminary talks with Manning about having the quarterback save his mind and body for spells during the 2015 season.

Backup quarterback Brock Osweiler is young and eager to play after serving a three-season apprenticeship as Manning's understudy.

"I think as a coach you have to make those suggestions to players," Kubiak said Tuesday during the AFC coaches' breakfast at the Arizona Biltmore resort, where the league is holding its annual league meetings. "But sometimes with the great ones, the reason they're great is you have to battle them on things like that because they're used to being a part of it every day.

"I want to do what's best for him. I went through the same process with John (Elway) late in his career, and it was a battle for me and Mike (Shanahan) to do some things with him."
I wrote in a few of my posts at the end of the season that if Manning were to come back, that he would have to understand that limiting wear and tear on his body would need to be a priority. We don't need him so much when we're up 3 scores in September, as we do in January. I am glad to see that Kubiak and Elway are apparently going to apply some pressure in this direction.

I know Manning will fight it, and that's part of what... [Read More]

» Gary Kubiak offers clean slate, big challenge to Broncos' linemen

Mar 25, 2015 - 10:19 AM - by Denver Native (Carol)
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- With the official opening of the Denver Broncos’ offseason program still three weeks away, coach Gary Kubiak can’t say how the team’s offensive line will look, but he can guarantee one thing awaits all those involved.

And that’s a clean slate.

Kubiak said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings in Phoenix that strengthening the team’s offensive front is still a priority and the returning players from last year’s group will get a fresh start.

Asked Tuesday where things stood in the offensive line at the moment, Kubiak quickly said Ryan Clady is the team’s left tackle, Louis Vasquez is, as expected, going back to right guard where he was a first-team All-Pro in 2013 and that Manny Ramirez could be in the competition at center.

» Gary Kubiak wishes Peyton Manning happy birthday, eager to work with Broncos QB

Mar 24, 2015 - 4:25 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
PHOENIX ó To begin his first AFC coaches breakfast while representing the Broncos, Gary Kubiak began by wishing Peyton Manning a happy birthday.

All good coaches understand the value of a happy quarterback.

"I'm looking forward to it, about two weeks out from getting started," Kubiak said. "I'm looking forward to getting him in the building and talking football on a full-time basis. So, happy birthday to him and can't wait to see him in a couple weeks."

» free safety vs corner

Mar 24, 2015 - 2:12 AM - by Valar Morghulis
To me, an idiot Brit, these positions should be fairly easy to transition to and from.

So what is the fundamental difference between the two and what would stop young Bradley excelling in the poison of free safety?
