Walker, in an interview with DenverBroncos.com, said one of his biggest assets as a football player is the ability to play multiple positions as a linebacker. However, his primary position is at inside linebacker.
"I’ve had to play in multiple positions throughout my football career; I can do a lot," Walker said. "I think I can do a lot very well. Hopefully I can come out here and show that and I’m going to be ready to compete."
Walker will earn his pay check on special teams. That was a role he played with the Chargers and one the Broncos will rely on him for as well.
"Special teams is all a mindset," Walker said. "It’s all just about who’s willing to work harder and I’m going to work as hard as I can so I’ll be great at it."
After Matt Birk retired following Baltimore's Super Bowl victory, Gradkowski stepped into the starting role at center. He did not have a good season and was replaced in 2014 by Jeremy Zuttah following a trade with Tampa Bay.
The Ravens and Broncos will also swap 2016 draft picks as part of the deal. It's assumed the Ravens will receive the higher pick in the trade.
"I feel like I’m ready, especially coming in a new offense, everybody gets a clean slate so we’re all starting from Day 1, and it’ll be exciting," he said. "I get to work with Peyton coming up soon, so he’ll be able to get me more into the offense and getting my learning curve, taking it to the next level."
Latimer is preparing to work with Peyton and Eli Manning at their yearly workout session next week.
"It’s my first time there, so it should be fun. I know we’re going to be working, studying, probably watching film and running routes," Latimer said. "It’s a good connection. It’s an early head start, in other words, to something that should be great. So that’s what I’m looking forward to, getting our timing connection and probably learning off of him and maybe learning something of the offense and things like that."
Latimer is cognizant of the fact that the team expects big things from him this upcoming season.
"I know it’s a big opportunity and I’ve got to make that leap for myself and our organization. They expect big things out of me; they drafted me in the second round, they expect me to produce so I feel like I’ve got to own up to that and make it happen.”
After not dressing for a single game as a rookie, Schofield added weight and he looks forward to fighting for a starting job.
"I am going in there with that mentality. In the NFL everybody is competing," Schofield said during a road trip to see family in Illinois. "They are looking for someone to step up and take over. I want to make that jump."
The third-round draft pick of the Broncos in 2014 struggled with weight issues, but he is now up to 305 pounds. He also recognized that his pass protection needs improvement.
"Personally, I felt there were reasons I wasn't out there (for games). I wasn't consistent enough in pass pro (protection). And my weight was really fluctuating," Schofield said.
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak believes that the team's zone-blocking scheme can help Schofield elevate his game, and Schofield agrees.
"We like the Schofield kid, so we'll see. We think he's got some flexibility (in where he can play)," Kubiak said. "It will be very competitive."
"I feel like I am better suited for this," Schofield said. "You have to be able to reach block, and I feel the steps required fit me better."
Thomas also doesn't plan to work out at Duke with QB Peyton Manning.
Thomas received the franchise tag from the Broncos. He said he hoped a new deal got worked out. "I want it to," he added.
"I'm getting getting my body right, still working through a little soreness in my Achilles, but I could run routes," Thomas said.
