It's an even split. The uncertainty around the Broncos' starting quarterback competition is just as active on June 1 as it was on March 1. Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch all are getting a fair shot until one separates himself from the pack.*

Kubiak is the calm at the center of a quarterback controversy, where the names have changed to Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian, but the uncertainty at the most important position on the field remains the same for Denver.

"I just want to tell him congratulations,'' Talib said. "He ran the country for eight years, he must be doing something right. So I'm going to tell him, 'Congrats. We're going to miss him.' Whatever comes to mind.''

Lynch spends all of his free time in the playbook (Jeff Legwold,*
Lynch was the Denver Broncos' first-round selection in the April draft, and as a Broncos rookie that means he is with the team's other first-year players in the weight room at 6 a.m. during organized team activities so they can get their work in before the rest of the players arrive. *

Eventually a decision will be made about which of them will start, but right now Kubiak wants to see how all three operate when competing to be the team's No. 1.

So, it's actually Siemian who finds himself in the unusual position of being the QB providing guidance despite having never thrown a pass in the pros.

The trio of contenders vying to replace Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler is complete, with rookie Paxton Lynch having joined Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian after the draft. And now, all three are healthy and ready to evenly split the first-team repetitions during voluntary spring practices this week and at the mandatory minicamp next week.

Of course, there's Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, the cream of the crop. Then there's the guys who have been here, the guys you already know of, the Bennie Fowlers, Jordan Norwoods and Cody Latimers of the squad. Tier three, though, is where things get really interesting.

"We haven't made a decision [that] you're [No.] 1, you're 2, you're 3," Kubiak said. "We're all working together, and I think we'll continue that way throughout the OTAs."

Simmons, a third-round pick out of Boston College, and Parks, a sixth-round pick out of Arizona, couldn't pick a better group from which to learn. The Broncos led the NFL in passing defense in 2015 and, according to cornerback Aqib Talib, they "don't want to be no Super Bowl bust."
