End thread.

Load up on a guy in the draft. Start molesting the NFL.

I'm curious with all the FA's we signed which fills those needs, if the Broncos aren't preparing to package some picks to move up and grab Lacy.

I haven't watched him play much since I mostly just watch broncos games. He is reported to be a good pass catcher/blocker, averages 4.5 ypc or more, and is only 27. Seems the only knock are injuries with him. Seems like a good pickup on the cheap if possible.

Only if he can be bought at a conservative price…

He's in the twilight of his career and his production has dwindled for the last 4 years.

I'd go with a younger veteran back and draft the best available RB in the draft.

we should talk with the cash strapped Panthers. I'd take either of their 2 starters.

If anyone who reads this has a draft evaluation chart, please share.
Others who would fit the Broncos' big back mold would be Michigan State's Le'Veon Bell, Texas A&M's Christine Michael and Stanford's Stepfan Taylor.

Any of these 3 have things I love about them and want on our team. I would rather have Latamore and have Knowshon/Willis start. Until he's healthy. When he completely heals, he's top 10 talent.

I'm on record LOVING the Taylor idea. He's the ideal workhorse back for this offense and situation, and on top of that he's a quality guy with a good head on his shoulders.

Stepfan Taylor in the 2nd or 3rd.

I'd go with Taylor in the 3rd if looking for a RB. Bell is bigger, but Taylor is shiftier. Michael was someone to look at too, but he missed meetings at the combine for oversleeping, so one has to wonder how serious he is about football. But no way should the Broncos trade up in the 1st to get a RB. Bradshaw is probably the best option in terms of free agents.

Taylor for me too. I was just watching tape and he squares his shoulders for tough yards better than the others.
Go back and watch Ronnie Hillman's 2011 highlight tape for a good cry.

I wonder if Michael Turner has anything left. He intrigues me due to his size. In a platoon system with, say, Stepfan Taylor, this could work.

Stepfan Taylor will be available much later than the 3rd. His 40 time murdered his stock.

Yeah.. I don't think anyone should be too upset we didn't nab a RB in FA.

There are A LOT of good options in the draft rounds 2-4.

In order of who I like:

Le'veon Bell
Jonathan Franklin
Eddie Lacy
Joseph Randle
Montee Ball
Stephan Taylor
Knile Davis
Christine Micheal

If we have to move up to grab Lacy, I don't see him being a Bronco. I'd be OK with that pick where we are, but I think moving up is overpaying.

Bradshaw would be awesome in this offense if he gets healthy and stays healthy. That's a big if though. Definitely no thanks to Wells, or Tuner. Goodson signed with the jets, but no thanks to him too.

I should have been more clear - package later picks to move up in the 2nd. He's not going in the 1st but I bet he's going early 2nd. I would move our 4th and 5th to move up in the 2nd. But really, somebody else mentioned, maybe it's a better idea the Broncos move out of the 1st altogether and pick up a high to mid second. If Lacy falls, great. If not, I'm sure Bell or Ball will still be there.

I won't be suprised if the Broncos trade out of the first round...

I'm always in favor of trading down since the talent level is usually not that big a drop from a pick to the next 10-12 picks. If the Broncos do look RB with the top pick I would prefer a trade down and get an extra pick or 2. If they look RB in the first round though, then Bernard should be the guy IMO.
