Broncos add 2 big bangers on offense in Sutton, Freeman

Cowboys interest in Courtland Sutton may result in draft-day surprise

The Broncos took sure-handed SMU wide receiver Courtland Sutton with the 40th overall pick, selected OR workhorse running back Royce Freeman at 71st and Boston College cornerback Isaac Yiadom at 99th.

Oregon's all-time leading rusher was selected by the Broncos in the third round of the National Football League draft on Friday night.

After releasing 1,000-yard rusher C.J. Anderson last month, Elway expressed confidence last week that his team could snag an impactful ball-carrier in a deep running back class. Freeman, who unleashes a powerful style from his 6-foot, 230-pound frame, is the all-time leading rusher for an OR program that boasts several prolific ball-carriers in recent seasons.

It took 24 picks for a wide receiver to finally come off the board in this year's NFL Draft, but the floodgates opened in round two.

His presence in the backfield complements Booker, who the Broncos hope will be their lead back, and Henderson, who looks to be more of a big-play "scat" back. But he's very raw.

Elway, who signed Keenum in free agency last month, needs more playmakers for an anemic offense.

"I think when you're drafting in the first, second and third round you're drafting potential starters and guys that can help your team right away".

"When I get on the field, I feel like I set different goals for myself", Chubb said.

Head Coach Vance Joseph and his staff coached Yiadom at the Senior Bowl - but they never had much interaction with him otherwise.

Like Sanders, Sutton went to SMU, and over the years he sought his advice.

Elway insisted he was also surprised to see Sutton there at No. 40 on Friday.

Bradley Chubb was a North Carolina State sophomore defensive end in 2015, and when John Elway and the Denver Broncos hoisted the Lombardi Trophy the following February, Chubb identified a role model in Von Miller. But it's more appropriate to say Chubb wound up in orange and blue thanks to the actions of idiots.

"He's a guy we needed", said Elway, the Broncos president of football operations/general manager. I always wanted to be around the ball. "When they were coaching me, I took every single tip they gave me and ran off with it. If I am going to do something, I am going to do it at 100 percent"'.
