Good Morning Broncos Country!

Today begins a very cool and informative opportunity for the Denver Broncos. The practices for the 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl kick off this afternoon and we will get our first look at Vance Joseph and his coaching staff at the top Senior’s in this years class.

Broncos Head Coach Vance Joseph addressed those players last night and had this speech for his players.

The Broncos will have the two top senior quarterbacks on their roster. Those players being Heisman winning quarterback, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Wyoming’s strong armed quarterback Josh Allen. The Broncos will keep a close eye on those two throughout the week.

Also, Mayfield’s agent Jack Mills confirmed the reports that the Broncos requested to have Mayfield on their roster because they wanted to spend more time with him and get to know him.

The Broncos and the North Team will hit the field at 3:30 p.m. ET and go to 5 p.m. ET. Coverage of the North and South practices will be covered on NFL Network throughout the week so make sure to tune in to watch these practices. There will be plenty of one on one drills, so we’ll see defensive line coach likely getting bleeped every two words while coaching up the defensive line prospects.
