Maybe Elway likes RB's with the name Ball, like Mike liked RB's named Bell.

well, we know he can carry a load! Probably not what i personally would have done, but he'll get burn. It's not a bad pick, but im glad they didnt get Swearenger or whoever. We need safeties who can cover.

Green Bay wanted Ball apparently and traded down to 61 thinking they would still get him.

Montee Ball is ok with me. Wanted an MLB, but Ball is a chain-mover from what I've seen. He should be a decent contributor. I guess they just waited to see who would fall and got their BPA.

It doesnt feel that way at all. I think the Broncos just like him a lot better than you do.

Who says this is a reach. Ball was the best all around back in the draft. Best runner, best blocker, best out of the backfield. Think TD.....all over again!

I like Ball. He reminds me of E Smith. I am just worried about the wear and tear he has going into the NFL. I just think there was better value on the board. Plus, that throws out the possibility of grabbing Lattimore in the lower rounds.

Not my guy-I wanted Bell, but we needed a stud RB. Glad they didn't wait too long its one of the glaring holes on this team. Very durable guy capable of picking up 2 or 3 yards when needed.

Ball WILL get the tough yards and Mighty Might will get the break aways. No doubt when the Ratbirds jumped in for Brown we went with Ball then.

He'll be fine and definitely fills a need

Vision/instincts + amazing college production is apparently what the Broncos value most in a RB prospect. Here's hoping they are right. I still think he would have been available much later.
