Are The Broncos Missing Something In This Year's Draft
The Denver Broncos add depth to backfield and with the no. 58 overall pick in the 2nd-round selected: Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin.
John Elway must see something in Ball that scouts and analysts do not. The Broncos were in desperate need of additional depth at running back, and took the large, pile-moving Ball over higher rated backs such as Eddie Lacey, Johnathan Franklin, and Christine Michael.
Durability is a big question, as Ball has a ton of mileage on the tires, and has suffered several concussions during his college career. He will slot in as the #2 running back in Denver behind mainstay Willis McGahee.
In the 3rd-round with the no. 90 overall pick the Broncos selected: Kayvon Webster, CB, South Florida.
In what is most likely one of the biggest head scratchers of the second day of the draft, John Elway didn't do the Broncos any favors by selecting the low-graded Kayvon Webster out of South Florida.
Champ Bailey is aging, and with the depth of the position in this draft, it should have been the perfect time for Denver to draft Bailey's heir apparent. Instead, Webster at best, will be a situational nickel and dime package defensive back.
A serviceable enough defensive back, the Broncos may have been able to not only draft a better prospect in the third round, but also signed Webster as an undrafted free agent at the conclusion of the draft.
