Siemian, a 2015 seventh-round draft pick out of Northwestern who won the starting job past year when he beat out veteran Mark Sanchez, quickly surged ahead of Lynch, a first-rounder in 2016 from Memphis, when training camp opened.
Siemian threw 18 touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions while completing 60 percent of his passes as a sophomore last season. He also boasts more experience than the 23-year-old Lynch and the rookie Kelly, having started 14 games for the Broncos last season. He was 8-6 as the team's starter, posting a quarterback rating of 84.6.
Afterward, the 2015 seventh-round pick said he feels he's done enough to be the starter.
"Well, I saw Paxton make some plays with his legs, which he should". "Our time frame is not important, but getting it right is".
FSU Ranked Third In Preseason AP Poll
It is also OU's highest preseason ranking under a first-year coach since beginning at No. 2 under Gomer Jones in the 1964 season. The last time an SEC team other than the Tide was preseason No. 1 was Florida in 2009; the Gators went 13-1 and finished third.
"Trevor, he was solid".
Denver still isn't likely much closer to making a decision on whom the starter will be despite vice president of football operations John Elway's plea earlier this week that one of the two take control of the job.
Denver converted the three turnovers - two fumble recoveries and an impressive interception by Chris Lewis-Harris, who wrestled the ball from 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin as both men fell to the turf - into 13 points. "So I was pleased with Trevor".
Broncos coach Vance Joseph is expected to deliver the news when he meets with the media later Monday. "I'm not the coach but I think so".
