Are Broncos one running back away from an unstoppable offense?
Manning now leads an offense with a trio of receivers in Welker, Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker who beat any combo in football. The decision to use the franchise tag on offensive tackle Ryan Clady keeps the line fortified, while the combination of Joel Dreessen and Jacob Tamme are more than serviceable at tight end.
The current trend in the NFL is waiting until deeper in the draft before finding a running back, which gives the Broncos an added advantage. They can use their first pick to shore up their secondary or defensive line, then grab that workhorse back with their second pick.
Alabama star Eddie Lacy makes almost too much sense. Given Elway's track record in recent years, we expect him to get this right.
