Now I know what most of you must be thinking, "hey we just traded for Maroney/ we also have the 12th overall pick in Knowshon". Well sadly this is just not going to cut it. Rest of the story after the jump.
Ok so yes we do have knowshon. What have we seen from him so far? Well we have seen that he does not possess breakaway speed in any way shape or form of it, we have also seen that he seems to be injury prone, and we have also seen he does not have great vision. He seems more like the 12th pick of the 4th round rather than the 12th overall pick. I woill go on record saying that Moreno will never be a superstar or even probowl rb. Now yeah part of the problem is that the o-line cant run block to save their lives but still. Buck isnt getting any younger, I am a fan of lendale white but only as a goaline back. Maroney.....eh i dont see him having a major role on the team. So where does that leave us? Well our passing game is not our weakness thats for sure. Our wide recievers are very good (although i feel like royal is on his way out, he just cant make an impact on offense). So when the draft rolls around this yr guess who im hoping the broncos select?......Yup thats right Mark Ingram rb from Alabama. I know we would have to take him high in the 1st but i think it will be worth it. Yes there are other needs esp some glaring ones on deffense but why not grab a special runner while hes available, rather than wait another yr or 2 and end up with another moreno type rb. I think Ingram will be a special runner, yes he is on a talented team(very talented) and has had some knee trouble, but hey risk vs reward right? Just imagine a backfield that has Ingram as the workhorse Moreno as the 3rd down back and Lendal white as the goal line runner. Wow....that would help kyle orton who was aske to carry the load of the team yesterday, and hey you never know a strong running game will most likely make things easier for tebow when he takes over the team right?
Now yes the defense needs work and youth but wouldnt you rather get a potential superstar runner than try and waste a 2nd rd pick on an averagish rb(like some people on here are suggesting). I would rather get a solid defense player or 2 with our two 2nd rd picks. The Broncos offense could really be something special with a special runner. I believe in Thomas and tebow. I am not a huge fan of beadles and am not to confindent he will be a good guard. But JD Walton i really like him. We need a gamebreaker in the backfield something Moreno is not nor will he ever be, and something Ingram has always and will always be. (Note I am not an Alabama fan at all, I am a Notre Dame fan, and a WVU fan, So no Alabama Homerism here i just call them like i see them.) Let me here what you think thanks....Go Broncos!
