We've spent two days watching quarterback rookie Matt Mauck call plays at Broncos Training Camp 2004; his voice rough and dry, his body an economy of movement. One can't help but notice the understated confidence.
Coming off one of the finest seasons in Louisiana State University history, his skills on the field are evident. Bronco General Manager Ted Sundquist believes the experience of leading LSU to a school record of thirteen wins and a share of the National Title translates as confidence on the field for the Bronco rookie.
Mauck an Academic All-American in 2003 has applied that intelligence to quickly grasp the plays and strategies he must master as a Bronco. An outstanding athlete in baseball as well as football, drafted by the Chicago Cubs, Mauck played three seasons as catcher for the organization before returning to football.
During today's morning practice and again this afternoon, Mauck's tight spirals and dead-on accuracy were noted by veteran Sports Broadcaster Joe Williams and others in the media and on the coaching staff.
Danny Kanell will have his hands full holding on to that backup quarterback slot on the roster.
