The list of open spots is extensive. The Broncos are looking for two starting cornerbacks and a nickelback in the secondary. Up front, Petersen is looking for a pair of young or inexperienced players to emerge at linebacker and another on the line.

The first chance to make a good impression started Monday - the first of 14 practices.

Petersen said Monday he's excited to see players compete on a defense that lost six starters.

Petersen also said he's impressed with the improvement of senior quarterback Joe Southwick, who led the Broncos to a 11-2 record last year.
