After cutting ties with C.J. Anderson on April 16, the Broncos entered the 2018 NFL Draft in need of a running back.
On Friday night, the Broncos addressed the position by selecting Oregon’s Royce Freeman in the third round (71st overall).
He has four picks in the top 75 with which to do so. Should he fail then some of the shine will be taken off the early part of his tenure and life will be more difficult for the Niners in a loaded NFC. John Lynch spoke about the pre-draft process and reviewed undrafted free agents from last year.
They have two first-round picks with which to find a new successor to Brady, potentially via a trade, but the Patriots still need pass rush help and also lost talent in the secondary, as well as left tackle Nate Solder and running back Dion Lewis, in free agency. This is a draft in which the Patriots need to secure their long-term future at quarterback and have plenty of more Cheap Gaelic Jerseys immediate holes to fill. For Belichick, it is the most important draft since the one that netted Brady 18 years ago.
The New England Patriots using both of their first-round picks on offense, getting a guard and a running back? A bit of a head scratcher, given all the talk about finding Tom Brady’s replacement.
The Baltimore Ravens trading up with the Eagles to get the final pick of the first round to select Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson ? A classic Ozzie Newsome move.
So that sets the stage for day two of the NFL Draft, when teams will be making their second and third-round selections.
Plenty of quality players remain on the board, including LSU running back Derrius Guice, Boston College linebacker Harold Landry, and Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph.
