The Denver Broncos have made it through the first few practices of training camp. Several more intense practices and the annual summer scrimmage are still to come.
Several important position battles have begun, and here, we will provide accounts of how the players involved have performed thus far.
One thing that will catch your eye is that most of the battles in Denver will be for backup positions. That is a huge credit to Broncos general manager John Elway and his staff, who have put together one of the league's top rosters.
On a 53-player roster, every position matters. And as the Broncos found out last year, injuries to top players make it necessary to have proper depth at each one.
Less than a week into camp, take a look at who has the advantage at each of the key positional battles.
