Broncos add a bunch of tough guys in the draft

John Elway is no longer the Denver Broncos GM. These two are the type of players that can help the defense maintain its elite standards in the coming years. "With (quarterbacks coach) Bill Musgrave getting his hands on them, I think he'll do a tremendous job".

When receiver and return specialist Isaiah McKenzie was chosen by the Denver Bronocs during the fifth round Saturday afternoon, he became the lone representative of the Bulldogs. Although he's listed as a wide receiver, he will nearly undoubtedly be a multi goal player for the Broncos. McKenzie scored once every seven offensive touches past year and returned five punts for touchdowns at Georgia.

The ballhawk safety will be in line to make an immediate impact to boost an abysmal Saints pass defense that ranked worst in the league in allowing almost 274 yards passing per game last season.

All could emerge as vital underneath and inside targets in the quick-strike, pass-intensive offensive new coordinator Mike McCoy is installing.

Joseph called Kelly "my favorite quarterback in the draft".

"You want guys who love to play and hate to lose", Joseph said. "Nasty DL with elite pass-rush skills inside and out". If Garett Bolles is the real deal at left tackle, not a first-round reach, the Broncos brought in the finest draft class of the Elway-as-executive era. Gotsis played in 16 games but didn't start any and finished with 14 tackles. "To think where he was a year ago - he didn't join us until mid-summer last year and to go to where he is right now is incredible".

"He could be a steal for a team on Day 3".

The NFL draft has come and gone once again, and as always it was far from disappointing. "I've never seen him raise his voice in my house ever". He returned kicks and was an accomplished receiver out of the backfield, finishing with 97 career receptions.

The Broncos sorely missed Malik Jackson past year but feel both Gotsis and Walker can stuff the run and push the pocket from the inside. Butt was one of them. They were both off the board within the first eight picks.

That's one reason why the Broncos drafted him.

He has a degree in recreation and sports management and is pursuing a second one in communications, and owns numerous CCU career records including rushing yards (4,635), rushing attempts (721), rushing TDs (58), average yards per rush (6.43), average rushing yards per game (92.7) and most 100-yard rushing games (25). He doesn't have the same straight-line speed as Kansas City's Tyreek Hill, but matches him in quickness.

This puts to rest my theory Aqib Talib should return punts. During the first round, on Thursday, I told my friend Andrew Mason, an analyst for, there was one player I wanted in Colorado: "That dude from Louisiana Tech".
