The leader in takeaways for Thursday's morning practice? College free agent linebacker Uona Kaveinga. The BYU product grabbed two interceptions in the session.

Rahim Moore also snared an interception; his came during one-on-one drills when he stepped in front of a pass intended for Jacob Tamme and returned it for a touchdown.

The loudest cheer of the day -- other than the one when the team started practice to kick off training camp -- came during one-on-one drills. Peyton Manning lofted a pass down the sideline to his newest weapon, wide receiver Wes Welker, who made the over-the-shoulder catch with one hand before securing it for a touchdown past cornerback Chris Harris. The two Oklahoma natives smiled and had a little back and forth chat as they ran back to the huddle.

Another notable deep touchdown connection came from Brock Osweiler to 2013 fifth-round pick Tavarres King,

It's not often a play draws much of a reaction from the crowd during individual drills, but when wide receiver Gerell Robinson made a leaping, one-handed grab on the sideline and got both feet inbounds, the fans voiced their excitement.
During team drills, Von Miller got his hands in the air and batted away a Manning pass at the line of scrimmage.

Quanterus Smith, who tore his knee up in November, was a full participant.

*sigh* if only that had happened during a certain play

Awesome. All he needs is a little more burst and he can be a real game-changer.

I hope this guy makes it. I'd love to stand up and yell his name any time he makes a play.

Good news about Hillman. Hopefully, he won't be a liability in pass protection.

I am expecting our defense to give up more points than last year. That's not so much a matter of losing Dumervil or Miller's pending suspension. It's just the fact that if the offense plays at a faster tempo and gets more plays, so does the other side.

I'm curious about that too. However I am also eager to see what keeping one system and one defensive coordinator for more than one year is going to lend to this unit.

I should hope Ball is better than someone who retired 5 years ago.

A shame, I was really hoping that this was Pittman's year to finally breakout.

So the question becomes did Peter King get the name wrong, or did Elway tell him the wrong name?

2. Befitting the issues of the team at large on the first day, quarterback Brock Osweiler appeared jittery during early periods of practice. He twice misfired on short check-downs that were targeted between the hashmarks within 2 yards of the line of scrimmage.
But those issues didn't last long, and although Osweiler once held onto the ball too long under inside pressure to settle for a sack, he grew more accurate as the session progressed. He also provided one of the day's highlights, hitting Tavarres King on a post route for a long touchdown just past Kayvon Webster.

3. Gobs of airtime, column inches and bandwidth have already been devoted to the Wes Welker-Chris Harris duels in practice. Welker earned the upper hand in Thursday's work, punctuating his day by beating Harris for a long touchdown pass from Manning in one-on-one drills.
But Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has arguably the most to prove of any cornerback this summer. Physical gifts have never been the issue for the 2008 first-round pick; it's a matter of being more consistent and learning to read the play better. He did that against Eric Decker during one-on-one and team periods, easily anticipating the passes coming his way.
Rodgers-Cromartie was beaten deep up the left sideline during a one-on-one period -- but it took multiple moves for Decker to finally work past him on the play. Decker eventually got going in the practice as he adjusted, but if this duel is played to a standstill throughout training camp, the Broncos will get more than their money's worth out of their one-year investment in Rodgers-Cromartie.
Speaking of cornerbacks

4. Tony Carter doesn't have the recent draft pedigree of Omar Bolden (fourth round, 2012) and Kayvon Webster (third round, 2013). Carter was the Broncos' third cornerback last year, but with Bolden, Webster and free-agent pickup Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Carter finds himself scrapping for playing time at one of the team's deepest positions.
But he made a bold statement against Demaryius Thomas, breaking up two passes up the right sideline during one-on-one work. Carter later intercepted an Osweiler-to-King pass in seven-on-seven work and nearly picked off a pass to Andre Caldwell in the one-on-one period.
Among the other Broncos to intercept passes were Rahim Moore, who snared a Manning pass intended for Thomas, and rookie linebacker Uona Kaveinga, who intercepted two passes.

5. If Von Miller's appeal of his suspension is denied, part of the solution for replicating as much of his pass-rush production as possible could rest with fifth-round pick Quanterus Smith -- assuming his surgically repaired left knee allows him to show the same explosion he displayed at Western Kentucky.
"I feel like it's going to take a little more time for me to just get used to just playing like this but I think that's going to come soon," Smith said. "I don't think it's any issue rehab-wise or something's wrong with the knee. I think all that's good. It's just getting out there and playing and getting back used to playing football."
Smith has a quick first step and can get to the edge, but acknowledge that he needs to supplement that with an inside move, so opposing blockers can't easily beat him by simply pushing him outside the pocket.
