» 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.


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?

» The Case for 28- Stephone Anthony

Mar 23, 2015 - 10:32 PM - by Ziggy

Next up is ILB Stephone Anthony. Anthony showed off his natural athletic ability at the combine. He weighed in at 6' 2 1/2" 243 pounds. His 4.56 40 time was tied for 2nd among all linebackers. He has been one of the fastest risers up draft boards since the senior bowl and combine.
Anthony (6-foot-2, 245 pounds) had a combined 206 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 24 tackles for loss as a junior and senior at Clemson, and NFL Media analyst Charles Davis said Anthony has impressed him this week at practices for the Reese's Senior Bowl.
"He caught my eye with his ability to run; then he caught my eye with his ability to hit," Davis said Thursday during the NFL Network's coverage of the Senior Bowl. "He's a big-time player. Not many people around the country know enough about him. They're gonna learn quickly about him. He's a heck of a player."
Clemson’s Stephone Anthony and Georgia’s Amarlo Herrera helped their draft stock, with one day of practices remaining in Mobile, Ala. Anthony, 6-2, 245, was the best of the linebackers, according to packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline.

“Complete linebacker. Tremendous plays in coverage; gets to the flanks in run support. Didn’t make a lot of errors, tough and also competitive. Can play inside or outside. Listed as inside. Three-down guy that can play in

» The Case for 28- Bernardrick McKinney

Mar 23, 2015 - 9:29 PM - by Ziggy

Next up is ILB Bernardrick McKinney. McKinney is one of 3 ILB'ers that may go in the first round. McKinney has great size 6'4 246 with 33 inch arms. On game days, McKinney lives around the ball. He lined up all over the field for the Bulldogs, an was used as a pass rusher from the OLB position from time to time. He offers great versatility for a creative defensive coordinator like Wade Phillips. McKinney is solid against the run and doesn't overrun plays. He has good instincts and decent athletic ability for his size.

I'll let an old member of the Broncos family sing his praises:

» Elway on Demaryius Thomas: 'We'd like him to remain a Denver Bronco'

Mar 23, 2015 - 8:19 PM - by Denver Native (Carol)
The Broncos' executive VP/GM hopes to have a long-term deal in place with the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver before the July 15 deadline.

Executive Vice President/General Manager John Elway hopes that the franchise tag for wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is the precursor to a long-term deal, just as it was for the previous two Broncos that received it.

"We're going to continue to work with DT and his agent to hopefully get something done for a long-term solution for him," Elway told Broncos TV's Chris Hall at the league meetings in Phoenix on Monday.

"We'd like him to remain a Denver Bronco, and that's one of our goals, to be able to get that done. I'm trying to get together with his agent, and hopefully we can do that. We'll continue to work diligently on trying to get something done."

» Elway hopes to have long term deal with DT worked out this year

But the Broncos had to get their books in order this year after they spent heavily in free agency the previous three seasons. And within the next 12 months, the team hopes to sign the likes of Demaryius Thomas, Von Miller and Malik Jackson to contract extensions.

I think Von is a given and they're obviously... [Read More]

» Broncos to get four compensatory picks

Mar 23, 2015 - 8:03 PM - by VonDoom
We're getting a 4th, a 6th and two 7th rounders. Not much of a surprise at this point, though I think some projections had us getting another 6th instead of a 7th. Considering how few comp picks we had, and the quality FA we picked up last year, it's still pretty cool
