No. Just draft a guy for much less.

Cost less and it's been said many a time. RB's don't have hardly any learning curve for the NFL and can provide instant production.

No thanks, I'd keep the pick.

No. I really think the balance of this team will lean favorably towards the pass therefore leaving defenses to cheat on the pass and open holes for running lanes. I think a decent speedster is all we need.

Not at all. That is too steep. He has only 1 year left and will want a big deal. I'd do a 3 rd pick but I think we could get a good enough rb late which happens all the time.

Yes Stewart is a game changer, given a chance to be in a feature role he could be a top 5 back. Size, speed, strength, smarts.

Nope -- either David Wilson or Doug Martin will be available at that pick, both of whom are younger, cheaper, faster, and have more upside.

Wilson won't make it to our second round pick. It would be a no brainer if he did, but I think there's even a chance he goes in the 1st.

Seriously, this.

Just goes to show how people really over-value draft picks. Is there ANYONE on that list that people would rather have than Stewart?

Having said that, it's not going to take a 2nd rounder to nab him. We'll get him for the 3rd and some other late pick.....or future late pick.

Jury is still out on Rahim Moore and Zane Beadles. It doesn't look good, but I'm holding out hope that they will be solid starters.

Alphonso Smith is a good corner, just not with us. (All the more reason not to give up on a guy.)

Darcel McBath is in Jax now and he has moved from Safety to corner. He was solid, just couldn't stay healthy. I'd say the jury is still out.

Richard Quinn - terrible pick. I didn't like it at the time. Never liked it.

Tim Crowder - same as above.

Tatum Bell had a good year. We also got Dre Bly for him who wasn't what I would call solid, but made a few plays.

I don't know much about Terry Pierce. I was in military school when he was drafted.

Broncos want another RB regardless of Knowshon Moreno's condition


Moreno is a former first-round pick, just 24, and may have been having the best day of his career as a runner with 52 yards on four carries against the Chiefs when he was injured along the sideline. And with the offense the Broncos will run featuring Peyton Manning behind center, there would be a place for a back who catches the ball as well as Moreno does. Also, Moreno is well-versed in pass protection — a must for any NFL back to play on third down.

But Fox wants some more muscle in the backfield in support of 30-year-old Willis McGahee.

In his tenure with the Carolina Panthers, Fox was in the team's "war room" when it used two first-round picks on running backs — DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart — to have the kind of depth in the backfield he wanted. The strength of the draft board this year doesn't show any backs beyond Alabama's Trent Richardson with unquestionable first-round grades.

But there are numerous bigger backs with middle-round grades who will get a long look from the Broncos.

Williams and Stewart both were first-round picks by the Panthers and are highly regarded by the team. But it’s pretty obvious the Panthers just sent a message that either one could be available and other teams are going to start calling to inquire about trades."

"It might be difficult to get a trade partner for Williams. The Panthers signed him to a huge contract last summer and that could scare off some suitors. But I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of the Panthers dealing Williams. Fox likes Williams a lot and could want a new toy for Peyton Manning in Denver. Some other team might be willing to take a shot on Williams."
