Broncos need to bolster anemic offense on Day 2

Share

The Broncos needed to target a running back early in the NFL Draft, and they did so by selecting running back Royce Freeman from the University of Oregon.

The Broncos selected Freeman in the third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 71st overall.

Freeman was the all-time leading rusher at Oregon.

The big victor among Broncos players three picks into the draft: Case Keenum.

Elway, who signed Keenum in free agency last month, needs more playmakers for an anemic offense. "There are pretty good running backs who are there already". He was most dominant as a senior, including a 2.5 sack effort against Boston College that left Eagles' coach Steve Addazio lost for solutions: "We doubled Chubb with the tackle", he said at the time.

"I loved playing safety, but I feel like in my heart I was a true receiver", Sutton said.

"I knew I was going to be able to dominate at the position if I bought into what they were trying to get me to do, " Sutton told the Denver media in a conference call.

He has only averaged 10 points per game this series compared to the 14.7 during the regular season he averaged. The Raptors converted on 46% of their field goals, including a terrific 11 for 25 effort from beyond the arc.

"When you're ranking your wide receivers for your roster, you talk about guys having No. 1 traits, " said Broncos head coach Vance Joseph.

Like Sanders, Sutton went to SMU, and over the years he sought his advice.

Last season, he caught 68 passes for 1,085 yards and 12 touchdowns. All of this could see Sutton land in Dallas if he is still available when the Cowboys are on the clock on Friday night.

Bradley Chubb was a North Carolina State sophomore defensive end in 2015, and when John Elway and the Denver Broncos hoisted the Lombardi Trophy the following February, Chubb identified a role model in Von Miller.

"That motor came from always wanting to make plays", Chubb said.

"The thing is, like I said yesterday, our scouts have done a tremendous job", Elway said. "If I am going to do something, I am going to do it at 100 percent"'. That is my mindset every time I step on the field. "If that comes with Rookie of the Year, that's perfectly fine with me as long as we win games".
