The Broncos traded for Mark Sanchez earlier this year, and there's a chance he begins the season as the starter. He has experience working in this run-heavy, play-action heavy offense from his days in college at USC. Sanchez has the desired athleticism to execute the play-fakes and bootlegs required in the Gary Kubiak system. During his time as the starter with the Jets, Sanchez led the team to two AFC Championship Games on the back of a strong defense. The Broncos have the league's best defense, so Sanchez won't be asked to do much if he is the starter. In fact, Sanchez never had a 1,000-yard receiver when he was with the Jets. Now, he's got two such WRs in star wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. Even if Sanchez is the Week 1 starter, the Broncos want 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch to take over at some point this season. (May 17)

Broncos | Mark Sanchez to receive first snaps (Wed Jul 27, 07:49 PM) - Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez will receive the first set of snaps during practice Thursday, July 28, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He will be followed by QB Trevor Siemian and QB Paxton Lynch. Kubiak said the quarterback rotation will change each day.

Our View: As expected, Sanchez is getting the first crack at starting. His experience gives him that edge, and we expect him to win the job though how long he keeps it is hard to say given his history. We don't see him as anything more than a shaky QB2 who could lose his job mid-season.

Broncos | Denver QBs to receive equal reps (Wed Jul 27, 03:36 PM) - Denver Broncos QBs Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will receive equal snaps at the start of training camp, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak said there is no timetable on selecting a starting quarterback.

Our View: The number of reps are going to be equal, but Kubiak admitted that Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian will split first-team reps. Lynch is the future, but he may need a redshirt year after coming out of a spread system in college at Memphis. He was the best QB in this draft class in terms of making plays under pressure. His completion percentage (67.9), TDs (11) and INTs (1) ranked first for FBS QBs under duress in 2015.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez named the starter? (Thu Jul 21, 09:11 AM) - Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was endorsed as the starting quarterback to the team by head coach Gary Kubiak, according to DT Sylvester Williams.

Our View: We're expecting this outcome given the lack of experience that Trevor Siemian has and the rawness of Paxton Lynch's game. We aren't sure he'll hold it all season, because this is Mark Sanchez we're talking about and he tends to find ways to lose jobs these days. Despite having two 1,000-yard receivers for the first time in his career (Sanchez has never even had one of those before), we still don't like him enough to recommend him as anything more than a QB3 at this point. We may see him climb ADP during camp but we continue to suggest caution given his history and the looming other options.
