Training Camp 2014: Day 5 Quick Hits

Posted Jul 28, 2014

Day 5's highlights included a big day from undrafted rookie Kenny Anunike and some big plays from Emmanuel Sanders.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The third day in pads brought some heavy legs, but a full-tackle short-yardage drill amped the energy level up a bit. Here were the highlights of the fifth day of training camp.



  • Undrafted rookie defensive end Kenny Anunike had another excellent day, making plays in all types of drills and situations. He first contributed to consecutive tackles for loss in the 9-on-7 period. In pass rush drills, he showed off his repertoire on consecutive sacks against Paul Cornick, using a nasty bullrush for the first before flying around the outside for the second. He topped it off with a "sack" of Brock Osweiler -- who was forced to his right by Marvin Austin-- in the team period and a tackle for loss in short-yardage drills.
  • Emmanuel Sanders' speed and quickness continues to look deadly. He beat Rahim Moore for a touchdown on a post from Peyton Manning in 1-on-1s and then added a big gainer against Bradley Roby despite a lot of contact. Sanders also scored on a catch-and-run touchdown from Manning in 11-on-11, running away from Aqib Talib and up the sideline.
  • The pairing of Chris Clark and Louis Vasquez showed a strong push off the right side during 9-on-7 drills, clearing the way for a pair of nice runs from Montee Ball. Ball also showed good agility and acceleration on a run to his left, bouncing outside the penetration of Derek Wolfe and Lerentee McCray to scoot up the sideline for good yardage.
  • McCray flashed his pass rush skills again, beating Ryan Clady for a "sack" of Manning early in team drills and nearly getting Manning again a play later.
  • Kayvon Webster made a diving interception during 7-on-7s after a Manning pass intended for Montee Ball was tipped by Nate Irving.
  • Steven Johnson made a few nice stops throughout the day, including a big hit and tackle for loss of Jerodis Williams during team drills.
  • Greg Wilson used a crisp out-and-up route to beat Omar Bolden for a touchdown from Osweiler in 1-on-1 drills.
  • Malik Jackson had himself a nice day, first grabbing C.J. Anderson for a 3-yard loss in 9-on-7. In line drills, he swam inside of Orlando Franklin for what would have been a sack a few plays after giving Vasquez all the All-Pro guard could handle. In team drills, Jackson made consective run stops at the line, with one coming on 3rd-and-short.
  • Julius Thomas made a nice touchdown catch in red zone drills, corralling a pass from Manning with Danny Trevathan draped all over him.
  • Osweiler followed Manning's red-zone TD pass with one of his own, threading the needle on a quick slant to Jacob Tamme, who caught the pass and fell backwards across the goal line.
  • Anderson had a pair of nice runs. In red zone drills, he sidestepped Lamin Barrow in the backfield and worked his way in for the touchdown. Then, late in the team period, he utilized his small stature to sneak through the middle of the line, punctuating a 10-yard gain by plowing into Duke Ihenacho's chest.
  • Ihenacho and Quinton Carter provided the biggest hits of the day. Carter popped Juwan Thompson in 9-on-7 drills, and Ihenacho knocked off Ronnie Hillman's helmet near the sideline after a swing pass.
  • Britton Colquitt showed off his skill in live punt drills, dropping a few punts right in front of the goal line and spinning them back to be downed by the coverage team.
  • Zac Dysert and Isaiah Burse connected for a pair of nice plays in team drills. First, Dysert dropped in a gorgeous toss up the seam, displaying good timing with his throw coming right at the top of his drop. Later, the pair connected for a third-down conversion on an out route. Dysert also had a big gain on a bootleg keeper to finish short-yardage drills.


  • Manning was in charge of choosing the music today, so stretching period began to the Tennessee anthem "Rocky Top." Manning and fellow UT alumnus Colquitt showed off their two-step dance moves as Malik Jackson, also a former Volunteer, sang along.
  • Former Broncos wide receiver and long-time Manning target Brandon Stokley was at practice, watching the action and posing for a few photos afterward.
  • Even though Ware didn't participate, he joined his teammates in his jersey for the stretching period.
  • Several players stayed on the field to fine tune after practice. Dysert worked with receivers Wilson and Bennie Fowler on timing routes. Wes Welker and Jordan Norwood threw each other passes with the counterpart's back turned, forcing him to pivot, find the ball in the air and make the catch. Sanders and Webster worked with each other on releases from the line of scrimmage.
