OR running back Royce Freeman drafted by Broncos

Adjust Comment Print

Royce Freeman grew up in San Diego, was a top-5 high school recruit in California, went to college at OR and now has a chance to be a starting running back in Denver.

The Broncos have now made three selections in the 2018 NFL Draft, including North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb, and SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton.

Freeman was the all-time leading rusher at Oregon.

John Elway has added size, strength and seasoning to the Denver Broncos' roster after spending much of the last two drafts taking chances on players who had lighter resumes and more question marks. "We also think he's very raw and has lots of upside".

"With things like this, you just don't know where you are going to end up or where you are going to go", Freeman said.

Arsene Wenger: Playing against Alexis Sanchez will be 'strange'
Mourinho has greeted Wenger's announcement warmly and even suggested they could "even be friends in the future". "I want to go peacefully, and with Mourinho now because he is a great manager".

Chubb said at the National Football League combine that he'd love to land in Denver and learn firsthand from his hero. "They played me at safety but Coach Jones saw that I had the ball skills and they needed some grit on that other side of the ball". "He's a great addition to the backfield", Elway said.

After a medical redshirt in 2014, Sutton caught 194 passes for 3,193 yards and 31 touchdowns in three seasons at SMU. All of this could see Sutton land in Dallas if he is still available when the Cowboys are on the clock on Friday night. We're excited about him.

Chubb was a freak at NC State - racking up all sorts of awards including the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which goes to the best defensive player in college football.

Now, Miller and Chubb will be able to line up on opposite sides and blitzkrieg the holy hell out of QBs - and if Ray and Wolfe can stay healthy, the effect could well be a return to the form the Denver D displayed during the outfit's championship run. I always wanted to be around the ball. That is my mindset every time I step on the field. "If that comes with Rookie of the Year, that's perfectly fine with me as long as we win games".
