I'm going with Wolfe. I know it takes a while for DTs (especially) to acclimate to the NFL, but I think this guy is going to bring some intensity, passion and drive to the position. The thing about guys like this (remember Dawkins? Tebow?) is that their passion for the game emanates outward and inspires others. Football is this guy's form of expression, and from the stories about him, also his lifeline. The intangibles are off the scale for this guy. No doubt he'll have some major adjustments to make, coming from the Bearcats to the NFL, but I still think we'll see some stand out plays early on.

I also can't wait to see the first time Hillman touches the ball out on the flat. I think he's going to make some Broncos fans stand up.

Manning and Wolfe. Also very curious about some of the undrafted free agents. We've had at least one make the team every year. That's better odds than a lot of teams.

I don't agree with this. Harris would play on any team.

Besides Manning, I am going w/ Wolfe, Hillman, & Bolden. Elway said he wanted 3(?) impact guys, not necessarily immediate starters, out of this draft, and these guys have the best chance of doing that this year, IMO.

I think Wolfe will immediately be in the rotation day one, but may not push to start until later in the season.
I believe Hillman will make everyone forget he was a high 3rd by taking away Moreno's role in TC and showing the big play capability we've been waiting years for at RB. Besides Moreno will probably get hurt or drunk anyway.
And finally, I think Bolden may be the steal of the Broncos draft. He doesn't need to start this year, as Porter(?) prob will, but he can play on passing downs and prove his knee is healthy and his talent underrated.

Need a poll!!

I want to see Hillman. He only weighs 175 lbs and could be a bust. He could be an explosive player where in space he could make huge plays.

Manning. Also curious to see if R. Harris is healthy again. I'm still hopeful to see Franklin kick inside and somehow manufacture a good OL.

any player drafted frompick #1 to pick#253 can be a bust. also he's 5'9" and weighs 200 lbs. that 175 number is bogus

Manning, Wolfe, Porter, and Hillman for sure. I'm also interested to see how Jason Hill looks with a legitimate QB.

Overall, I'm very excited to see the team. I feel we finally have depth and developing players behind starters. I'm not overly thrilled with the subterfuge involved with the Tebow situation, but as far as team building goes, this front office is doing excellent. And, as mentioned, this is the first draft class I've actually really liked in awhile.

He said in the presser that's he's never played at that weight so he may have to go back to 185-190

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State running back Ronnie Hillman was selected in the third round of the National Football League Draft on Friday afternoon by the Denver Broncos. Hillman, who spent two seasons at San Diego State, produced 15 career 100-yard rushing games (second in school history behind NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk), 12 career 150-yard games (second to Faulk) and three 200-yard rushing games in 26 games.

So what did you say his weight is again?

Not at all. I think he'll be fine I don't look into measurables, if he has the vision I've seen in the videos he should prove to be a great pick up

Clady - Franklin - Blake - Kuper - Harris

Assuming Harris is back to form and Blake is an above average center we'd have a seriously upgraded O-Line.

Walton was among the worst centers in the NFL last year. Some had him as the worst.

He has been working his ass off with Manning. He deserves a a chance. Right now Walton has the head start. Also people have pointed out Blake is here for Beadles job.

Eric Page....as I know he'll impress when given the chance.

I know I'm biased when it comes to Page, but I also know I'm capable of making an unbiased judgment of a player's ability to ball.

Eric Page grew up 5-10 minutes from where I live and was an awesome high school player:

Named Northwest Ohio's "Player of the Year" by Toledo Blade...2,381 yards on 256 rushes...1,102 yards passing on 71-of-133 attempts...Ran for 34 TDs, passed for 11 more and kicked 47 extra points...Was the Ohio Division II "Co-Offensive Player of the Year," league MVP and a first-team all-state selection...As a junior, ran for 2,039 yards and 23 TDs, and passed for 1,137 yards and 17 scores...Five times in career posted 300-yard rushing games...Compiled 8,800 yards of total offense in his career.

Then he signed with my alma mater, Toledo, and was awesome from his first game as a freshman against Purdue.

A knock on him was playing in the MAC, but he has always stepped up big when Toledo has played the big boys.

Page would have crushed the NCAA FBS records for career receptions and receiving yardage if he would have come back for his senior year.

Dude has awesome lateral movement and would look great lines up in the slot for us, catching WR screens and other assorted short and intermediate routes. He would fit well in the Wes Welker role....lot of short catches to move the chains.

He is tough as nails....in 3 years I don't recall him getting injured or banged up and missing any time at all....short and stout and knows how to avoid the huge hit.

He is a fearless and instinctive punt and kick returner....I think he has taken 5 to the house in his college career and I recall 3 or 4 others that got called back because of penalties.

He is only 5'9 on a good day, but he uses his size to his advantage and knows how to get open. He fumbles now and then, but he can control that.

Frankly, I was shocked he wasn't drafted.

I know the draft advisory board gave him a grade in the 4th round range.

He would have been wise to stay in school, but now that he is a Denver Bronco, I'm happy about it.

I'm most excited to see what a healthy Warren or Vickerson can do. I thought Vickerson was really coming on right before he got injured, and Warren when healthy is a great NFL player. Also excited to see Hillman, rbs always get a lot of action early so we can look forward to seeing what he's got in the tank. Also looking forward to seeing the Tamme and Dressen and what they can add to the TE attack. But obviously Manning is the newest Bronco with the most excitement to look forward to.

Ok, that is good. I read 175 somewhere and that got me really concerned. 190 lbs is much better. Ok I'll change my pick to Manning than....smile
