Denver Broncos draft Royce Freeman, upgrade at running back

Denver Broncos draft Royce Freeman, upgrade at running back

OR running back Royce Freeman, here sprinting through a hole against Wyoming on September 16, was selected in the third round by the Broncos on Friday night.

The 6'0 229 pound back said he is ready to "deliver the blow" with the Broncos.

Freeman rushed for a whopping 60 touchdowns in his four years with the Ducks, and racked up 5,621 yards.

With No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas turning 30 last Christmas, No. 2 receiver Emmanuel Sanders playing this season at 31, Jordan Taylor coming off hip surgery, and Carlos Henderson (0) and Isaiah McKenzie (4) combining for 4 catches past year, the Broncos desperately needed a young, No. 3 receiver. Still, there's no doubt Freeman has the better prospect profile.

"It wasn't an everyday thing but we would talk a few times about how I get to that level and how I continue to climb to be the best that I can be, even with that big fight against me coming from a smaller school", 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.

The 6-foot-3 Sutton acknowledges he's still new to playing receiver after arriving at SMU as a safety.

In his junior and senior seasons at SMU - the same college Sanders attended from 2006-09 - Sutton had 76 and 68 catches for 1,246 and 1,085 yards and 10 and 12 touchdowns.

The Broncos turned to offense on Day 2 after Bradley Chubb, the top-ranked defensive player in the draft, fell to them at No. 5 on Thursday night.

The first two selections give the Broncos young weapons to surround new starting quarterback Case Keenum while complementing veterans such as receivers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. We're excited about him.

And Friday, in his first visit to the team's suburban Denver complex, Chubb said the feeling is certainly mutual.

Now, Miller and Chubb will be able to line up on opposite sides and blitzkrieg the holy hell out of QBs - and if Ray and Wolfe can stay healthy, the effect could well be a return to the form the Denver D displayed during the outfit's championship run. It was just something I was raised with.

"When I get on the field, I feel like I set different goals for myself", Chubb said.

With Miller, Shane Ray and Shaquil Barrett also at outside linebacker, the Broncos have plenty of depth to use in their variety of pass-rush packages.
