Broncos need to bolster anemic offense on Day 2

  • Von Miller Loses His Mind After Broncos Draft Chubb

All four of his picks so far - North Carolina State pass rusher Bradley Chubb, SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton (who redshirted as a freshman), OR running back Royce Freeman and Boston College cornerback Isaac Yiadom - spent four years in college.

Chubb marks Denver's highest draft pick since John Elway selected Von Miller as the second overall choice in 2011. Freeman might even shatter expectations of being a short-yardage back, as he left OR as the school's leading rusher, despite missing time due to injuries.

"We're lucky", Broncos coach Vance Joseph 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. "We talked a little bit about moving up and couldn't get anything done and so we were patient with him and it worked out".

In exchange for pick No. 149, the Seahawks sent the Broncos picks Nos.

Elway reiterated his excitement for Chubb on Friday - "We really feel that he's going to have a tremendous career", he said - with expectations Chubb will contribute immediately among a deep group of Broncos' edge rushers such as Miller, Shaquil Barrett and Shane Ray.

18th running back in program history to be selected in the NFL Draft.

One reason why Sutton is raw is because he was mostly recruited as a safety, and wound up switching to receiver early in college. Freeman rushed for more than 5,000 yards, 60 touchdowns and eclipsed the 100-yard marker 31 times. Freeman tested as an above-par 59th-percentile SPARQ athlete in Indy with 4.54 speed and a 6.90 three-cone time.

The fade pattern in the end zone, it seems, could eventually become Sutton's red zone route.

How will Sutton fit into this Broncos passing offense? Freeman lands in the ideal situation as he'll likely receive immediate snaps and need only outperform Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson to be significantly involved. "It's more the concept and more about your offense".
