Broncos, Briefly: Saturday, May 28, 2016

Posted May 28, 2016

A quick look at the recent buzz on the Denver Broncos.

Sanders may have the ‘It’ to be the offensive leader (Troy Renck, Denver Post)
Denver’s uncertainty at quarterback, though, demands somebody step forward. Running back C.J. Anderson sets an example with his brilliant football IQ and bowling-ball yards after contact. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is the longest-tenured offensive player, and in a much better place than a year ago during his contract absence. I am not in the locker room but for a few allowed hours per week during the season. Still, my observations from practice and games suggest an obvious choice: Emmanuel Sanders.

Debate: which rookie will have the biggest impact in 2016 (Mark Kiszla and Troy Renck, Denver Post)
In a way-too-early assessment of Denver’s draft picks, name me a rookie who has a chance to make John Elway look brilliant for finding a gem that was undervalued by rival NFL general managers.

Secondary receivers vie for a bigger role in 2016 (Cameron Wolfe, Denver Post)
Two third-year wide receivers, Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler, will draw the attention of the Broncos’ coaching staff this summer. Each has an opportunity to seize the No. 3 job at wideout, and a much bigger role in an offense in need of improvement.

A league-wide look at the first week of OTAs (Gregg Rosenthal, NFL.com)
'Tis the season of candy store dreams. Here's what else we learned after one week of OTAs.

Less talk about the Super Bowl, more talk about winning it again (Ryan Koenigsberg, BSN Denver)
“Fans are still happy about Super Bowl 50,” C.J. Anderson told a small group of media at Broncos headquarters on Tuesday. “We’re trying to move to 51.”
