Broncos 2013 Training Camp Day Five
No. 17 Brock Osweiler: Several media members have commented to me how they love what Osweiler is showing in camp. His zip is outstanding and his mechanics have been cleaned up. Osweiler is still forcing some passes but he shows ultimate confidence in his arm. He is also showing good pass placement. Osweiler doesn’t just have “area code” accuracy. He’s putting the ball on the correct shoulder and leading his receivers properly to maximize run after the catch yards.
No. 2 Zac Dysert: Dysert’s struggles continued today. He was getting a few of his teammates beat up with passes that were high, behind, and generally off the mark. Mechanically he struggles with consistency. There are some who question whether or not he even makes the practice squad. However, he’s a favorite of the staff and that should help.
No. 39 C.J. Anderson: I liked when the Broncos picked up Anderson as an undrafted free agent earlier this year. He showed plenty of power in college and is a swift runner. However, he never showed the type of speed he did today on the run to close out practice. Anderson has a strong lower body, runs with good pad level and proper forward lean. On a run to the left he broke through on the edge and turned on the jets. He ran away from the defense and scored what would have been a 40-yard TD. Those runs have been limited to Ronnie Hillman, but today Anderson made a big play (and a big impression). Anderson also showed good leg drive near the goalline. If he continues to impress I say put him on the practice squad. I don’t think there’s enough room to fit him on the 53-man roster.
No. 66 Manny Ramirez: Worked with the first-team and head coach John Fox cleared up who is the starter after practice. “Manny played a lot of football for us a year ago with the loss of [G] Chris Kuper as well as J.D. Walton, who are two people that are still on our football team that we are still nursing back to health. So, we feel decent where we are. We always hate losing people for the season, but we will march on.” Ramirez allowed too much pressure in the pit and lost out on power and speed moves to different Broncos defenders.
No. 54 C.J. Davis: Worked with the second team after missing practice yesterday due to an ankle injury. In the pit he was about .500 for wins and losses against the Broncos defense.
No. 64 Phillip Blake: He worked with the third-team and continued to struggle. In the pit Blake was regularly beat by the defender lining up against him.
No. 92 Sylvester Williams: During the pit Williams was a standout player. He quickly got around Left Guard Zane Beadles, showing good first step explosion. Later in the pit Williams put Center Philip Blake on roller skates and moved him with ease. Williams went down with a knee injury during practice. After the day was over head coach John Fox said the injury was not serious. “We are looking at it. It doesn’t appear to be super serious, but they all could be so we will keep you posted on exactly what it was.”
