If you have been following along with our training camp coverage, you know that access is much more restricted this year due to all the changes from Covid-19. Fortunately, there’s still some great coverage happening on the ground at the Denver Broncos’ training camp this year.
On this week’s episode of Cover 2 Broncos, Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright of Broncos Country Tonight on KOA 850 Radio were kind enough to sit down with Joe Rowles and I to talk about what they’ve seen so far from the Denver Broncos in camp.
We covered a range of topics from:
How good is Jerry Jeudy?
- Spoiler, he’s pretty damn good!
What is Denver’s plan at linebacker with Justin Strnad out for the season and Todd Davis hurt?
- Allbright said Denver made some calls yesterday and will likely make some more today, but not sure what level of help they’re pursuing. The hope is that Davis is ready to play and start week 1.
Who’s looking good in the secondary?
- Both guys said Bausby and Yiadom had CB3 and CB4 locked down, and with Ojemudia for sure making the roster, the 6th corner slot is really up for grabs.
- The starting CBs Bouye and Callahan look really good, according to Ryan Edwards. This is something we’ve been concerned about, but I think we may be able to breathe a bit easier with both corners being healthy and looking great in camp so far.
- Allbright says this defense is going to be really really good this year.
What’s happening in the trenches?
- Ryan Edwards has been really impressed with the Dline across the board. Lot’s of good depth and said Dre’Mont Jones and Demarcus Walker have looked really good.
- Special callout for McTelvin Agim who Edwards said has earned praise from multiple Olinemen as one of the tough matchups out there.
- Lloyd Cushenberry is battling well at center and will likely win the starting gig, but Austin Schlottmann has had a really good camp as well.
- Elijah Wilkinson is your starter at right tackle, but he’s still only 85% or 90%, recovering from his foot injury.
- Demar Dotson has been getting 3rd team reps as he acclimates to the Mile High air, and will likely slot in as a backup.
How has Drew Lock looked?
- Allbright said Lock is the best QB Denver’s had out there since Peyton Manning. An admittedly low bar, but still very encouraging to hear Lock is looking really solid so far in camp.
- Both guys talked about Lock’s consistency improving and him not only having the potential for big plays, but raising the floor of the offensive output, so they can be more consistently effective.
- Pat Shurmur is running a ton of boot action to get Lock out on the move, which has also helped his footwork as it keeps him from falling back off his back foot on throws.
We covered all that and more! Check out the full episode for some more great insights into Broncos camp.
