--TE Tony Scheffler had four catches for 73 yards and a touchdown against Tennessee. He has some problems with dropped passes, but he will be a major part of Denver's offense this year as the second tight end.

--WR Brandon Marshall will get back in the mix for the third receiver job when he's healthy. Marshall has a knee injury that might keep him out the rest of preseason.

--DL Elvis Dumervil played end last week, after spending a couple weeks at tackle. He is expected to contribute in passing situations.

--OG Chris Kuper has been impressive. He has been playing with the second-team offense and could be a top backup this season.

--RB Mike Bell played very well against Tennessee. He looks like Denver's starting tailback to begin the regular season.

--DT Antwon Burton could win a job as a backup. He was undrafted but is active for a big interior lineman.
