We have Peyton Manning to throw the ball. Just give me a guy who can get back to the line quicker than the d-linemen, and fall forward after first hit, and I'll be satisfied.

I don't think you understand, a dynamic runner with Peyton Manning throwing the ball is a special thing. We need that, a lot of teams played 6 in the box last season and we couldn't do **** but gain. 2-3 yards

Give me a back who is an expert in pass protection...runs hard, hits the holes, and can pop one every once in a while!

We haven't had a serious running threat since Clinton Portis. I remember watching TD in 97/98 and it was almost unfair having Elway and TD on the same field.

Boy the Broncos sure love RB's with the last name Bell....

Ken Bell, Tatum Bell, Mike Bell........

unfortunately, none of them ever really panned out as franchise type...maybe the name is cursed?

i don't even need a serious home run threat. just a back that's a legit 25-100 threat each game. housing it is nice, but we need someone to tote the rock from our 10 without fumbling and cash it in from their 20 and closer.

I like Bell, Lacy and Ball at RB. I think Denver should trade back into the 2nd round then grab whoever is available.

Definitely a possibility. They need a WR.

GIve me a guy who will bring his own blocker and convert on 3rd and 2. Look at who the Broncos have talked to this offseason and you will see what kind of back they want. Mendenall, Bell a bigger back with some ability to break off a 40 yard run

2nd and 2 should be a freebie down to takea shot but not last year with the O's inabiltiy to pick up a 3rd and one like in OT against BALT

Way too many 2nd and 2 turn into a punt on 4th down.

First the guard and next the RB.

I think the run on QBs will start late first so a team like BUFF drafting 11 in the 2nd better get up into the end of the first but several teams will be willing to move back

honestly i wouldn't mind that. but i would hope that they get more value than last seasons' haul. did not like the value of the trade we made but i liked the player we got.

I agree, move back into the mid second and grab a late 3rd or early to mid 4th.

They did have some pretty good luck with a back name Davis. Maybe they could see lightning can strike twice.
