Denver Broncos News: Horse Tracks - 8/5/13

No real surprises on the Broncos first depth chart of the 2013 season. No drafted player is listed as a #1 yet. Despite the increased looks in camp for guys like Julius Thomas, he still sits behind the two proven vets. Duke Ihenacho who had a killer week of practice, is still listed as a backup to Mike Adams. I like it for one reason: it dangles a carrot while still keeping guys motivated to keep bringing their best--onward to week 2 of camp and the Broncos first preseason game this week!
