    Broncos DT Sylvester Williams earning starting spot

    The starting nose tackle position is open for the Broncos. But Sylvester Williams has apparently taken the lead in that battle. Williams knows the territory. He started 13 of 16 games a year ago. He finished with 17 tackles and four assists. "It's exciting because going into the offseason for the first time I'm pretty much a sure starter," he told 9News. "My coaches have shown a lot of confidence in me and given me the opportunities that I need, so it's up to me to take advantage of those opportunities." Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips certainly isn't complaining. "I think 'Sly' has done an exceptional job," he said. "I feel real good about him. ... I think he's really taken over the nose guard position."

    Broncos NT Sylvester Williams working to improve game

    Broncos third-year defensive lineman Sylvester Williams has much to prove heading into the 2015 season. He must show he can play nose tackle and that he can fill the void left by the departure of Terrance Knighton. Williams has been working toward accomplishing those goals. He stayed in the area during the offseason to better his game and remain in peak shape. He has emphasized diet and shedding body fat as well as film study in an attempt to learn of areas in his game that require improvement. "I already went into this offseason with a lot of motivation from within," he told the Denver Post. "I put a lot on myself to get stronger this year and come back with a better year." Williams started 13 games last year and contributed to 21 tackles.

    Broncos' John Elway seeking third-year leap from DT Williams

    With free agency approaching for defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, Broncos general manager John Elway spoke highly of Sylvester Williams -- Knighton's possible replacement -- during Thursday's combine press conference, per the Denver Post. "We still like Sylvester, we think there's still a lot of potential there, and we are not sure that he has scratched it yet. If there's any guy that can get it out of our players it's our new defensive line coach Bill Kollar," Elway said. "So Sylvester is going to get tested, and will get pushed. And I think it will be a good thing for Sylvester." Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2013, registered 21 tackles (17 solo) last season for the Broncos. He had two sacks his rookie year.

    Top pick Sylvester Williams biding his time in Denver

    Most first-round picks work their way into significant playing time by the season opener. Broncos defensive tackle Sylvester Williams isn't one of them, but he's willing to be patient, according to the Denver Post. Williams was practicing at times with the first unit until a mild knee injury set him back. Though he might not even line up in nickel packages Thursday night against Baltimore, he should get on the field. He's content with that for now. "It's a lot more than just lining up and playing," he said. "You've got guys who are stronger in the NFL, so you need more technique, because a lot of those guys you're going against are athletic and strong. I look forward to getting better every day. And when my coaches give me a chance to play, I'm going to go out there and give it everything I've got."
