    Default 10 players who've stood out during Denver's voluntary OTAs

    The Denver Broncos just wrapped up three weeks of Organized Team Activities. Peppered throughout were 10 voluntary practices, as mandated by the NFL.

    Compared to training camp, OTAs might not be as immediately affecting, but they are a piece to the greater puzzle the Broncos are putting together in 2018. With a Draft class of 10 players, plus a crop of undrafted rookies, the Broncos are rolling into this summer with a wealth of youth on the roster.

    Combined with the Draft classes of 2016 and 2017, the Broncos are no longer one of the oldest teams in the league, as they were when the likes of*Peyton Manning*and*DeMarcus Ware*were around. This is a young Broncos squad, replete with unknown quantities.

    But that’s a good thing. And it could be the impetus of a monumental turnaround.

    Coming off a 5-11 season, the Broncos are sandwiched between a World Championship and a new era. But in order for Denver to emerge from this awkward period, realize it's goals, and make some new entries in the franchise annals, the youth of the roster has to carry it’s weight.

    With that in mind, which players stood out over the last three weeks of voluntary OTAs? While it isn’t easy to distinguish oneself without pads and without contact, several players found a way to do so.

    I think Cortland Sutton could end up being the steal of the draft. Can't wait to see this guy play in preseason.

    Josey Jewell seems like a tackling machine and has got high praise from teammates.

    I like how most of our draft class were team captains and leaders. John really seemed to nail the draft this time.

    Until we see them play for a few years, it's really hard to judge a draft. But on paper I think this is a really good draft by Elway and company.

    Agreed. I can't wait to see Sutton play. I really think he could be a star.

    Sutton could be good. Josey likes to tackle. Chubb is a rookie.

    I threw out the idea of drafting Sutton at #5 (which is prolly dumb but I did it)...getting him as late as we did was stellar.
    The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.

    Your responses are always so calculated, well thought out and deep.

    Reports in mini camp are saying him and Hamilton are doing really good. Hamilton burned Roby deep yesterday and Sutton is winning 1 on 1s. We have alot of money tied up between DT and Sanders so it would be nice if both of these rookies turn out being the real deal in case we lose one of our starters.

    Josey Jewell continues to earn praise from coaches & teammates

    ByCHAD JENSEN*

    The Denver Broncos were able to trap lightning in a bottle with the off-ball linebacker duo of*Brandon Marshalland*Danny Trevathan*in 2015, but since then, one could argue that it’s been the weakness of the defense. That’s why when Denver selected Iowa linebacker*Josey Jewell*at the top of the fourth round in the 2018 NFL Draft, it felt like football serendipity.

    Coming out of high school, Jewell was a two-star recruit who found the demand for his services in Division I NCAA football rather mild. However, after accepting an offer from Iowa, he doggedly attacked the game and quickly grew his role as a Hawkeye.

    By the time Jewell walked away from Iowa football, he was the school’s all-time leading tackler, a ‘Permanent Team Captain’ and entered the NFL Draft as the reigning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. It was Jewell, not the likes of 2018 first-rounders*Roquan Smith*and*Tremaine Edmunds, who was named the recipient of the 2017 Jack Lambert Award (given to the nation’s top linebacker).

    The Broncos had exactly two starters over the age of 30 when they won the SB, they weren’t even close to being the oldest team in the league.

    Make Broncos Great Again, Trade for Jameis Winston.

    Daniel Cooney OT, Justin Herbert QB, Drew Lock QB, Riley Neal QB, Greg Little LT, Isaiah Prince RT, Dalton Risner C, Mike Weber RB, Riley Ridley WR, Marvell Tell III S, Martez Ivey T/G. Daniel Jones QB.
