Well you can reverse that jinx by stating that the Broncos have no WR's that can showcase Patrick Peterson's immense talents....

He probably would have been....and to think we got him a year earlier for only a 2nd rounder

Ronnie Hillman is in the room. He says he's about 15 pounds heavier than at the end of the 2012 season, expects to play at 195 lbs.

Hillman says he was at 180-182 pounds at the end of the 2012 season.

Re: blitz pickup, Ronnie Hillman says "it's all starting to look the same" after he's been through one season & has gotten adjusted.

Hillman: W/ Welker here, Broncos' WR corps "is the best in the NFL right now ...it's going to be a nightmare for a lot of people come Sept.

Demaryius Thomas. The Broncos' WR corps "is one of the best in the league." W/ Welker around, "it's tough to focus on one guy.

Demaryius Thomas: Comfort level with Manning "is sky high now.

Broncos offense "is just working on the fast part" in OTAs this week, Demaryius Thomas says.

Demaryius Thomas said he didn't feel he was back to 100 pct. following his Achilles until the 2012 preseason -- 18 months after the injury.

Louis Vasquez says it's "comforting" to play next to Manny Ramirez at OTAs. The two were teammates at Texas Tech.

Louis Vasquez says Orlando Franklin is "a subconscious eater." Vasquez stayed at Franklin's home for a while after first coming to Denver.

Vasquez on hi tempo offense "Once that ball is gone, hustle downfield & wherever the ball is down, get up to the line..& just keep rolling”

Louis Vasquez on if DEN teammates give him grief about being former SD player “No, they heckle me every once in a while because of last yr"

Hillman on if he ever was over hamstring injury last year “I think I never really recovered, but I got healthier than what it was."

Hillman on pass blocking "I’m a lot better w/it. I’m more comfortable. You’ve seen it a few times by now so it all starts to look the same”

Hillman on being 1st team RB “It’s a privilege to run with the first team right now. I just try to do my best to compete

at the Osweiler/Dysert comparisons. I'd be pretty worried if Osweiler didn't look worlds better than a 7th round rookie QB who doesn't even know the offense yet.

Why? I was hoping Walton was going to be the long term answer. Ramirez has already proved to be a valuable back-up at guard.

Von takes on RT so often the added weight will help him. If was a one trick pony speed rusher i would worry. Most of his best stuff though is when he punks a 300 pound tackle and bull rushes him into the backfield. The added weight will help.

He's a better player than Walton from what we've seen. If JD beats him, awesome because Ramirez still knows how to play guard just fine, but we probably just upgraded the weakest link on the OL just by shuffling our available talent.

I like to see this. Hoping Hillman can be a major contributor this year and form a solid 1-2 punch with Montee Ball. Along with Welker and some hopefully improved O-line play this could make the offense better, and more consistent, than last year.

Ramirez doesn't always make the right reads in pass pro, but there is no arguing against the fact that he is the more dominating run blocker. He has significantly more push than Walton.

Is Walton still recovering from the ankle? If so, I wonder when he is expected to be "healthy?" It might make for a very interesting training camp battle.

I'm not sure we can say that definitively as fans without knowing the called protection

Tjhat makes sense. I hope Walton kicks his ass, solidifies himself at C for the next 10 years. Ramirez can go back to role player.

This does not look good for Blake though.

Need to have one of the 45 gameday active players who can play back-up Center. Broncos will only have a couple back-up OL gameday active, Ramirez and a swing Tackle.

It just makes sense for Ramirez to learn the position. No reason to have 2 interior OL gameday active. Doesn't mean Blake won't make the squad.

Brock Osweiler: 6'6 7/8"

Joe Flacco: 6'6 3/8"

Their height difference is half of an inch.

Ryan Mallett: 6'6 6/8"

Mike Glennon is even taller than Osweiler: 6'7 1/8"
