It’s pad day!
Today the Broncos will put on the pads and have their first real practice of the year. Look for the pads to start popping, the tempers to flare, and hopefully give us some separation in some key roster battles.
Pad day is all about the trenches and the running backs. Which offensive and defensive lineman will stand out and which running backs will have success now that they’re going live?
All eyes will be on first-round pick Garett Bolles. He has been a stand out thus far, but these have been non-padded practices. Today is the real deal and hopefully the rookie shines.
Of course the quaterback battle is still going on. Paxton Lynch had all the momentum until yesterday’s practice when Trevor Siemian fought back. With this practice meaning so much more, whoever “wins” this practice may start building an early lead.
Hopefully everyone comes out of today with only some minor bumps and bruises.
