JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — The Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins won't need helmets for rookie minicamps.

No 11-on-11 drills. No 7-on-7 work.

The Dolphins don't even plan to step foot on the practice field.

The Sunshine State teams could be starting an NFL trend this week by making significant changes to the way they handle initial training sessions for draft picks and undrafted rookies.

The Jaguars are holding a "rookie orientation," in which there will be a lot of meetings and a little time on the field for individual drills.

It's essentially a two-day session to ensure newcomers won't be lost when organized team activities begin later this month.

Miami's rookies will do even less physical wor

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Quarterback Trevor Siemian is stuck between the future and the present, a project in first-rounder Paxton Lynch and a placeholder in Mark Sanchez.

Siemian, a seventh-round draft pick out of Northwestern in 2015, is the only QB on Denver's roster who has taken a snap — albeit just one — in Gary Kubiak's West Coast offense.

He was the only Broncos QB left standing when Brock Osweiler bolted to Houston 48 hours after Peyton Manning's retirement in March.

The Broncos made eight selections in the NFL draft that concluded Saturday:

Round 1: QB Paxton Lynch, Memphis

A project who could end up as best QB in the draft

Round 2: DT Adam Gotsis, Georgia Tech

A reach who was coveted by D-line coach Bill Kollar

A hard-hitting safety who adores ex-Bronco Brian Dawkins

Good, because he's the guy - for Week 1 against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers, at the least, and for Weeks 1-17 and the postseason, at the most.

Unless something weird happens - and in the quarterback capital that brought you Tebow Time, Peyton vs. Brock, and Josh vs. Jay, weird is the norm - the Super Bowl champions will defend their title with Sanchez as the starting QB.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway leaned against a wall outside the team meeting room adorned with images from the Denver Broncos' Super Bowl season and declared, "The plan is to keep picking at the bottom of the round — and there is no Plan B!"

That last part was a playful nod to Peyton Manning's arrival in 2012 when Denver's general manager explained he had no fallback plan at quarterback.

For much of the last four years, he didn't need one.

Then, Brock Osweiler's exit in free agency 48 hours after Manning's retirement two months ago left Elway scrambling like he did when he guided the Broncos' fortunes from the line of scrimmage and not the front office.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers added speed and potential to their defensive backfield and talented size and depth to both sides of their line Saturday in the NFL draft.

The Niners selected talented but troubled LSU cornerback Rashard Robinson with their first pick of the day in the fourth round. He brings outstanding speed and a tall, wiry frame to a secondary looking for help, but he also sat out last season after being suspended by LSU coach Les Miles during his sophomore season of 2014.

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys finally took a glimpse at a future without Tony Romo while taking a Baylor basketball star who hasn't played football since he was 13.

The final day of the NFL draft was something like the first two for owner and general manager Jerry Jones on Saturday. He was thinking less about filling holes on a 4-12 team and more about adding potential stars at positions where the present is in decent shape.

Put another way: Jones thinks a healthy Romo and receiver Dez Bryant are better than anything else at getting the Cowboys closer to 12-4, the record for his NFC East-winning team two years ago.

The NFC champions used three of their five draft picks on cornerbacks after Norman signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins last week.

Keenan Reynolds, a record-setting quarterback at Navy, was taken by Baltimore on Saturday in the sixth round with the 182nd overall pick.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pound Reynolds ran the triple option with the Midshipmen. He scored a Football Bowl Subdivision record 88 touchdowns, but will seek to make his mark in the NFL as a wide receiver and punt returner.

"That's what I've been working on," Reynolds said. "I just think my best area is being in (open) space with the football."

Tim Tebow is out of an NFL job. For his fervent followers, it's a match made in, well, heaven.

An online petition asking the Broncos to reunite with Tebow started on Change.org just before Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler bolted to Houston, had more than 5,500 supporters early Thursday, a boost of more than 2,000 after ESPN ran a short item on the bid.

General manager John Elway acquired Mark Sanchez in a trade with the Eagles and visited with Colin Kaepernick, but was unable to persuade him to take a pay cut in 2017 or the San Francisco 49ers to chip in to pay a portion of his 2016 salary to facilitate a trade.

The report also said that Denver will carry three quarterbacks. There had been some speculation that the Broncos would add yet another quarterback, but that does not appear to be the case.
