Denver's 2018 draft

Recommended Posts

 

1. Bradley Chubb  - now starting at OLB

2.Courtland Sutton - now starting at WR

3. Royce Freeman - 2nd string RB

3. Issac Yiadom  - now starting at CB

4. Josey Jewell - now starting at ILB

4. DaeSean Hamilton - now starting at WR

5. Troy Fumgalli - TE - injured reserve.

6. Sam Jones - OL - practice squad

6. Keishwan Bierria OLB - special teams

7. David Williams RB - released

 

       

     They didnt plan it this way.   The Broncos surely didn't want Yiadom and Hamilton

starting just yet but losing Emmanuel Sanders and Chris Harris changed their plans.

I don't see a team making the playoffs with six rookies (including undrafted Phillip Lindsey) starting but it does speak well for Denver beyond this year.

 

 

The last team to make the playoffs with six rookies starting was the 2012 Colts?  Andrew Luck's rookie year

Vic Ballard, Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener, TY Hilton. Jerrell Freeman and Andrew Luck, right?

Yeah, they had a good draft. I thought so after the draft. I believe I told you that I wanted the Vikes to draft Hamilton. How has he looked to you?

 

I believe that the Saints had many of their rookies start for them last year -- Kamara, Lattimore, Ramczyk, and Marcus Williams. Those players started pretty much the whole year. I don't know if they had other rookies (drafted or undrafted) start.

I do remember you saying that.....about Hamilton

Watch today.  He has been stuck behind Sanders and that's over now.

 

I think he might catch a half dozen passes today..

...he just hasn't had the chance before today

I expect many coaching changes this year. Do you expect Denver to retain its head coach? I think the fans sure hope not.

I think they will....

The team has responded to him and his staff....really for the first time in 2 years...

 

..and Denver's a pretty young team now...//When young players are playing well.. I'm guessing you stay with the coaches..

I meant to write that the fans sure hope he is NOT retained -- I edited it. But I agree with you. I am someone who likes continuity which I believe is undervalued. Firing coaches and GMs and starting over every other year is not good for a team. Cleveland is a good example of that.

Hamilton caught 7 passes...mostly shorties..for 50 yards and a TD Sunday in his first start..

I think you are right about him.

Yiadom is OK, nothing special to write about, IMO. 

 

But then, you have a defensive co-ordinator who cannot game plan for 1 of 2 weapons the 49ers had, George Kittle. It is mind boggling.

 

Broncos do know how to draft LBs, that is for sure.

If they could figure out how to get a QB in 2019 they will be tough.  It's not every year when the greatest QB of all time becomes available.  Maybe they are hoping the other Manning drops out of the sky for them.

Broncos are stuck with Case Keenum for another year at least - they gave him 2 years and they will want to see how he does when they bring along a new set of coaches. I would not be shocked if they go with Mike McCarthy for working with Case Keenum. 

 

The interesting QB name to watch is Joe Flacco. I wonder if the Ravens are willing to part with him and let Lamar Jackson take over. If they do so, he will definitely garner interest from defensive minded teams like the Jaguars if they can get a first rounder or at worst an early second rounder for him, which I am sure they will. He still has a few years left in him, IMO. 

 

His contract is: https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/baltimore-ravens/joe-flacco-4000/

 

Or they may take a flier on a young talent like Teddy Bridgewater who plays smarter than Blake Bortles.

    • Well...    this is pretty much the first public viewing of Luck in some time....   So, when he's been out of sight,  I think it's fair to say,  he may have been struggling...  
    • @Irish YJ     Of course you would give my post a "sad" reaction.    It has everything in it that you hate and avoid.    Things like facts.   Truth.    Logic.    Common sense.    You treat them like Superman reacts to Krytonite.       And of course,  it comes a day after I gave a post of yours a "laughing" reaction.   That might've been the one your had were you said you had noticed Willis had some inconsistances.    And I thought......    Really?     You live in Atlanta and Willis is with the Colts in Indiana.    I don't read any of your posts claiming that you were in camp with the Colts and were following Willis.     So, that leaves the first pre-season with Buffalo.    So, you saw Willis in his first pre-season game play maybe half the game.    And you're concerned about inconsistancies.   He's a tip,  free of charge.    Almost all rookies have inconsistencies,  especially in pre-season.   It's part of being.....    you know.....    a rookie!   I can play this game with you as long as you'd like.     Strictly up to you....  
    • If it came to the point of having to play walker we are screwed anyway so might as well take our chances with a FA from somewhere else.
    • Thought I heard he was doing well in TC practices wonder what happened.
    • A lot of the calls including that one was crap the crew hopefully never refs one of the colts games in the regular season there was nothing wrong with that block and that holding negated touchdown ended up being the difference in the game. The only reason i'm not complaining a lot more about it is because its preseason if this was a regular season game I would say a lot more.
