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.

    • Are we, as Colts fans, overvaluing or undervaluing Jacoby Brissett?   It probably depends on how you look at our backup QB.  If you are looking at him compared to other backup QBs around the league, you are probably undervaluing him.  I could make the argument that he is the most valuable backup in the NFL.  And I think Ballard agrees.   However, if you're looking at Jacoby as trade-bait, you might be overvaluing him.  A team trading for Jacoby would want him to be their starter.  Granted, this article is written by David Carr for NFL.com, so take it with a grain of salt, but he has at least 10 other QBs ranked ahead of Brissett for other teams to consider drafting, signing as a FA, or trading for.   http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001018216/article/ten-quarterbacks-worth-pursuing-via-tradefree-agencynfl-draft   I expected to see Brissett on that list.  When I didn't, I wondered if I'm overvaluing our backup by viewing him through my blue-colored glasses...   And I think the draft-stock of the QB prospects will only increase leading up to the draft.  I just don't see a team offering Ballard enough to part ways with Jacoby at this point.
    • I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.
    • Fort Wayne, Indiana.   1995 AFC Chamuonship game its Harbaugh is when I started to be a Colts fan.
    • Flowers as well as Dante Fowler Jr. should also be available.  I would be happy will Flowers and Robert Quinn when he is released.  Those two would be great additions.  I can see Quinn getting double digit sacks again moving back to DE. 
    • So Kaepernick did have his price?
