The traveling and countless interviews from various NFL teams are over. No more prodding from medical personnel and questions from family and friends about where your professional career will begin.

Broncos rookie minicamp began Friday, and coach John Fox is glad to have the evaluation process turn to the real thing.

"The evaluation process is always a lot of fun, very time consuming, a lot of hard work by a lot of people, but to get out on the grass and actually see guys in a Broncos uniform work on the things we do is always exciting," Fox said after Friday morning's session. "You love getting back on the grass, no doubt about that. You spend a lot of time evaluating these guys, whether they're draft picks or college free agents. At this stage, after one practice, we're getting to know them and they're getting to know us. So probably a little too early to be jumping all over evaluations. But it was a good first day. I liked the enthusiasm."

The three-day minicamp concludes Sunday. Fox said his staff's focus is to educate the young players "about learning a new language."

"Ball, at the end of the day, is ball, and so it's just about getting them acclimated to the way we do things, the way we call things, so basically about learning a new language," Fox said.

Former Colorado State standouts Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barrett are participating in the camp after signing free-agent contracts with the Broncos.

"Just a great opportunity for me and I'm just going to take advantage of it and do the most I can to compete," said Barrett, a linebacker who also considered signing with Pittsburgh because of Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter, a former Rams linebacker. "It's nice to have somebody out here that I know (in Bibbs). We can push each other if we're slacking. I know what he wants in life and he knows what I want in life. It's this right here and we're going to motivate each other."

Bibbs, a record-setting CSU running back, said: "I love being here in Denver, playing with the Broncos. I feel like it's a great opportunity. God makes everything happen for a reason so I feel like it was the reason I'm supposed to be here. ... It feels real great. As a kid you dream of stuff like this and now it's all coming true."

I assume you are being sarcastic since many have stated he was moved to TE and that's why we needed a WR early outside of just needing to replace Decker and eventually Welker.

Latimer looked good in his juke move off the LOS. I know he wasn't playing anybody, but he looked pretty quick.

I never understood moving Robinson to TE. He'll never make it there. He's way too thin to play at the TE position. The kid runs a 4.7 40 which is why they don't see him at WR. Look...can he get off the line? And, can he get open? This is more a dink and dunk offense anyway. Give the kid a shot at WR. TE...not a chance!

Ummm.... he's been on our practice squad for two years now (this will be the third Broncos camp he's been in). That's a bit more than "a camp body". Not saying he'll make the roster this year, but it's clear someone on the coaching staff has faith in him....

Robinson has to be showing something as others have pointed out to still be around, but he will be making a position switch which may or may not work out. He was very productive in college and if he has gained some weight and strength, he has a shot.

I heard on the light rail that Robinson and Osweiler are secretly a gay couple, and management has been stashing Robinson on the practice squad the last two years to keep "Twilight" happy. Elway and Fox are perfectly fine with it, but Pat Bowlen has asked that everyone keep it discrete, given the large number of republicans in Colorado.

Switching positions after being on and off the squad for a bit means he didnt pan out IMO. And failing to make the roster also means he hasn't panned out yet. Dude is a camp body so far.
