Yeah, it looks like he has been a guy who started this year and some in the past, but has mostly been a reserve guy / special teams dude. Looks like he has NFL bloodlines and his father was an NFL linebacker. Kind of goes along with the character / pedigree thing Elway preaches. Haven't seen him higher than a late round or UDFA type guy, but it is nice to see that they are doing their dilligence and going over everyone they can. Considering how they got Chris Harris, I'll be hopeful if we can snag this guy and he can do something for us.

Anyone find any videos of him?

Given his size and strength, I'm guessing they're trying to find defensive backs who can cover the tight end. Good.
I'm sure they found him while scouting Jordan Campbell!

Thanks Tony.

John Boyett was a stud until he blew out both of his knees. Wonder how he has recovered.

Eddie Lacy - RB - Player

The Denver Post gives the Broncos a 33 percent chance of using their first-round pick on a running back.
Reporter Mike Klis ups it to "99.9 percent" that the Broncos use one of their first three picks on a runner. Alabama's Eddie Lacy is the most obvious candidate for the Broncos to take in the first round, but UCLA's Johnathan Franklin is a dark-horse possibility. Finally over his hamstring injury, Lacy is holding a "personal workout" on Thursday.

Yeah, dude. 2nd rounder, Manning type of RB. 4.4 forty, hands, mass-producer. I had the Broncos taking him at #58 until faxgate. Now, I think the Broncos wait until round 3.

I'd be ok with Lacy if we moved back from 28 to early 2nd round. But I really would prefer Bell.

While the Denver Broncos are looking at a bunch of big running backs heading into the 2013 NFL draft, including Stepfan Taylor, Le’Veon Bell and Montee Ball, it seems their number one candidate to take over the rushing mantle is Eddie Lacy coming out of Alabama.

this RB talk kind of makes and interesting discussion for last season's draft. was it a good move to trade back and select Wolfe or should we have just taken Martin when he was available? Wolfe had a solid year and finally we drafted a DL player early. But Martin was just a major stud.

Interesting question. My question is this--is Lacy gonna be as good as Martin in the NFL? If yes, then you draft him at 28 for sure.

My response would be that bell, michael or ball will likely be close to martin, maybe not quite as good but can/could be had a full round or two later.


To me I do not see a big dropoff between bell, ball and michael vs lacy- but we can grab them anywhere between rd 2-4.



Remember, rumors last year were that we were really high on lamar miller and were likely to snag him if we couldnt get decastro...Instead we let him fall all the way to rd 5 where Miami snagged him and (he will likely become the starter and ball out this year for them-FF tip for ya)

#Broncos sent their OL coach to check out Luke Marquardt, a sleeper OT who is massive at 6'9". Interesting late-round option.

Per the Denver Post, the #Broncos have taken a "long look" at FSU DE Tank Carradine. #NFLDraft

i don't know about the RB rumors. last season we were supposed to be in love with Lamar Miller and we never even sniffed him.
