The Denver Broncos selected Royce Freeman with the 71st overall pick - bringing in the man who forced the fourth-most missed tackles in the draft class pic.twitter.com/0RTiq5ACX4— PFF Draft (@PFF_College) April 28, 2018
The Broncos released veteran running back C.J. Anderson last week and needed another power back in their stable to compliment Devontae Booker and De’Angelo Henderson. I think he will be the Broncos red zone/short yardage back who could take over the position if he plays well.
I really like this pick and glad the Broncos didn’t wait long to address the running back position. So far, I am really liking John Elway’s draft. Hope he continues it later tonight with their second third-round pick at the end of the round.
How would you grade the Broncos selection of Royce Freeman?
