From the Denver Post...
Watts, a second-round pick from Marshall, has been one of the standouts of camp. Lelie is the starter, but Watts is outperforming him and could supplant him.
"We have competition there," coach Mike Shanahan said. "Darius will be a starter in the National Football League someday, but right now he is competing, and that's what he's supposed to be doing."
Further suggesting Watts is pushing for major playing time is that he has practiced with the starting unit at X receiver, a shorter route position, while Smith has been in the Z receiver position. Lelie primarily is a Z receiver - more of a deep threat - but Smith is versatile and can play both positions.
"The best two players will play," Shanahan said.
Watts has been the more productive of the two in preseason games, with six receptions for 74 yards. Lelie has yet to catch a pass.
