The second day of the NFL Draft provided less drama for football fans but was every bit the excitement it should be for the players drafted in the second and third rounds.
And Broncos Country seems highly satisfied with Denver's two newest acquisitions - wide receiver Cody Latimer from Indiana and offensive tackle Michael Schofield from the University of Michigan (which interestingly means that the Broncos' first three draft picks are going to play on the same team after being Big 10 foes that last few years!)
But both Latimer and Schofield couldn't be happier about that.
Thanks everyone for all the support! I could not have done this without all of you. Special thanks to my family! Love you all! #GoBroncos— Mike Schofield (@SchoBlue75) May 10, 2014
And just in case you're wondering about character issues? None.
Elway: Character reports on Latimer & Schofield "came back squeaky clean."— Andrew Mason (@MaseDenver) May 10, 2014
Latimer's height and dunking ability (he's a Hoosier, after all) got a lot of attention on Twitter, mainly because the guy can dunk like a mad man. Demaryius Thomas, you ready for a showdown?
Whether Elway knew about the dunk contest doesn't matter. He certainly understood what that could mean for his star quarterback.
Pleased to trade up and select wide receiver Cody Latimer from Indiana. Big, fast & physical WR with a tough mentality.— John Elway (@johnelway) May 10, 2014
And fans certainly understood what it means for Latimer too.
Although Schofield is likely not a starter next year, Elway is equally high on the lineman's abilities.
Added Michael Schofield in 3rd Rd from Michigan. A versatile tackle who can also play guard. Tremendous upside and brings competition to OL.— John Elway (@johnelway) May 10, 2014
Schofield himself proved he's ready to compete to make a difference on the offense of the league's five-time MVP.

But just in case Schofield wasn't up to the task, one fan had a reminder:
And another fan - Kendall Coyne of the USA women's hockey team - wins the Tweet of the Day for her message to Schofield about the Broncos draft:
Is there a greater compliment than getting picked to guard arguably the best quarterback in the NFL in the third round?!? @SchoBlue75— Kendall Coyne (@KendallCoyne) May 10, 2014
No, Kendall. No, there isn't.
Welcome to the team, Cody and Michael!
