Royce Freeman pushing Devontae Booker to be Broncos’ lead back

The Broncos’ leading rusher from last season, C.J. Anderson, is now in Carolina. Which leaves an opening for the lead role in Denver this year.

Devontae Booker, who was second on the team in rushing last season, is the presumed favorite. But rookie third-round draft pick Royce Freeman is making a case for himself.

Broncos coach Vance Joseph said Freeman absolutely has a chance to be the team’s starting running back this year, according to ESPN.

No expectation for the draft, Rodrigue said. Totally a mystery. We all know it’s difficult for a goalie to be selected early.

It’s nearly impossible now as teams wait until the later rounds to shore up the most important position in the sport. Unlike quarterbacks and pitchers who are often top-10 picks in football and baseball, goaltenders in hockey are so difficult to project that only six have gone in the first round over the past decade – including none this year.

It’s not just trying to build a roster, Gaine said, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. We’re trying to build a football culture that’ll withstand the test of time and not just be on a year-to-year basis.

Such changes will likely take more than one offseason to fully take hold, but the work already done and the return of several injured stars may be enough to bear some fruit immediately as well.

The Patriots run their Big Nickel package (three safeties) as much as any team in the NFL, and return their top three safeties in 2018 with Devin McCourty Jason Garrison Jersey (97.1 percent of the defensive snaps in 2017), Patrick Chung Dave Schultz Authentic Jersey (87.5) and Duron Harmon (65.8). So Thomas isn’t a pressing need, but the Patriots will always explore unexpected opportunities (i.e., Rodney Harrison in 2003) to improve the roster if it seems like a good value with all the pieces falling into place, and this would certainly qualify.
