Players from all 32 teams with the most to prove in 2016 (Pete Prisco,
As NFL teams wrap up OTAs and then minicamps in the next two weeks, it's time to take a look at the players on the spot for all 32 teams. These are players who fans, media members and their own teammates and coaches will be focusing on as they head to training camp this summer.

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak has called his quarterback position a three-way battle between Mark Sanchez, rookie Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian. They are splitting reps evenly and that doesn't figure to change soon. Sanchez is logically the heavy favorite and Siemian figures to be a heavy underdog. But people smarter than me, from Kubiak to cornerback Chris Harris to ESPN's Jeff Legwold, insist that Siemian has a chance. That's an upset in itself.*
