DENVER, CO (WMC) -

It's time to battle with the big boys for former University of Memphis Quarterback Paxton Lynch.

The Denver Broncos top draft pick is taking part in his first OTA, or off season training activity.

This is where rookies and veterans all come together as a team for the first time.

The first of four OTA's sees Lynch taking snaps with the second unit.

Second year pro Trevor Siemian is getting snaps with the first team, while veteran projected starter Mark Sanchez protects a thumb injured in off season workouts.

Lynch, though, shows why he's the Broncos next big thing, zipping passes through a slight breeze and connecting on his first TD.

Observers said he was more relaxed and assertive than in rookie minicamp.

"I feel a lot more confident than I did the first time we came out here. We looped around the playbook and I have a better feel for it. I just want to play and help the team," Lynch said.

"We don't just cheer for ourselves. It's our offense against our defense.. If Paxton and Trevor are doing well then we're doing well, and we do whatever we can to help each other out as much as you can," Mark Sanchez said.

This is the first of four OTA's for the Broncos.

Their first pre-season game is August 11 at Chicago.

Denver's Regular season opener is Sept. 8 against Carolina on NBC and WMC Action News 5.
