With Training Camp a little over a month away, should the Denver Broncos look to add a veteran running back? Montee Ball (120), C.J Anderson(7) and Ronnie Hillman(140) have only 267 career carries between the three. Outside of those three, Kapri Bibbs, Clay Brennan, and Juwan Thompson are Undrafted rookies, and second year player Jerodis Williams all have 0 career NFL snaps. The average age of the seven Denver Broncos running backs is 22.3 years of age. So clearly the Denver Broncos have some youth and inexperience.
So again I ask you the question. Should the Denver Broncos look to add a veteran running back for some competition/veteran presence at the position?
Lets take a look at some of the veteran options still available?
Not many names here jump off the page to me. I think a back like Michael Bush, Ronnie Brown and Isaac Redman is the most realistic option if they decide to go that way.
What do you guys think? Do you think the Broncos are set with Ball, Anderson and the other young backs, or should they bring in a veteran?
Quanterus Smith Learning From The Best:
Second year player Quanterus Smith has been learning the tricks of the pass rushing trade from two of the best in the game. All Pro linebacker Von Miller and future Hall Of Fame defensive end DeMarcus Ware have been have been great role models for the young second year player.
Smith appears to be taking advantage of this great opportunity.
"It's more with your hands and just going through the tackle instead of trying to get around him (an opposing blocker)," Smith said. "Using your hands and going through him -- (Ware) taught me that. So I'm trying to work on that."
The big for Smith this offseason was to develop another pass rush move other then his speed rush. While news about Smith has been pretty slim, the one nugget I did find on him was about how he pressured Peyton Manning with explosive inside pass rush move. If Smith can continue to improve on his technique and strength, and become a multi-dimensional pass rusher the Broncos will have a great trio of pass rushers coming off the edge.
