Three things to watch at Bron­cos train­ing camp Fri­day

The Denver Post - - SPORTS | DOVE VALLEY DAYS -

Time to air it out? The team ses­sions dur­ing Thurs­day’s open­ing train­ing camp prac­tice were mostly con­fined to the red zone. “I think guys re­ally re­sponded to it re­ally well,” quar­ter­back Trevor Siemian said. “That was a lit­tle fur­ther ahead in the in­stalls, which was good too, so you get guys think­ing at the same time.” It wouldn’t be a sur­prise to see the Bron­cos open up more of the field Fri­day as they let their two com­pet­ing quar­ter­backs, Siemian and Pax­ton Lynch, air the ball out.

The O-line shuf­fle. Will first-round draft pick Garett Bolles land the start­ing job at left tackle? Where does tackle Ty Sam­brailo, a for­mer CSU star, fit into the mix? Will new­comer Alan Bar­bre, a 33-year-old vet­eran, grab a start­ing job at one of the guard po­si­tions? These are among the ques­tions that re­main to be an­swered on the of­fen­sive line as camp con­tin­ues. More light should be shed come Sun­day, when the Bron­cos strap on pads for the first time this sum­mer.

Who will make a name for him­self ? The first in­ter­cep­tion dur­ing team drills Thurs­day came from Mar­cus Rios, an un­drafted rookie from UCLA who picked off third-string quar­ter­back Kyle Sloter near the end zone. All ros­ter long­shots such as Rios can do is make the most of their op­por­tu­nity. Just ask Bron­cos star Chris Har­ris, an un­drafted rookie in 2011 who made the ros­ter and be­came an all-pro cor­ner­back. What other un­her­alded name will move to the sur­face with a strong per­for­mance Fri­day? — Nick Kos­mider, The Den­ver Post
