  • Why Broncos fans should be excited about Courtland Sutton

In Denver, Sutton joins another former SMU receiver, Emmanuel Sanders.

Sutton was listed in the first round by many mock drafts, including those stabs authored by Mike Mayock and Mel Kiper Jr., who both had the 6-4, 216-pound receiver going No. 19 to Dallas.

With AP Photos.Broncos GM John Elway has four more picks in the National Football League draft, two in the fourth round and two in the fifth, and his biggest needs are along the O-line and maybe even at quarterback with a prospect such as Richmond's Kyle Lauletta, who could sit behind Case Keenum for a couple of years. "Bellcow type. First and second down".

Elway said his phone blew up with "a ton" of trade offers from other teams desperate to move up to fifth, "but we really wanted Bradley and we're thrilled that he was still there". I hope we don't have a high pick like that for a while.

Freeman is the sixth OR running back in program history selected in the first three rounds of the draft, joining LaMichael James (2013 - 2nd Round), Jonathan Stewart (2008 - 1st Round), Maurice Morris (2002 - 2nd Round), Reuben Droughns (2000 - 3rd Round) and Curt Mecham (1942 - 2nd Round).

More woe for Djokovic as French Open looms
Nadal, a dominant player at both Monte-Carlo and the Barcelona Open , was the favorite there and remains the favorite this week. Djokovic's start to the year, which now stands at five wins and five losses, is the worst of his entire professional career.

Royce Freeman, the Pac-12's second all-time leading rusher, had "no idea" he would end up in Denver. With C.J. Anderson gone, Freeman only needs to hold off Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson to open the season as Denver's lead back.

Freeman could be the starting running back right away. "Just being there and competing with those guys". Oregon's standout left tackle, who had been projected as a second- or third-round pick, was not selected on Friday.

He is the first Duck to be picked in this year's draft. The Broncos didn't take a quarterback at No. 5, and he got a receiver and running back with their next two selections.

"We feel very fortunate", Elway said. "He's got room to grow". "Courtland, as well as Royce and Isaac, they're really, really good people".

"We're lucky", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. "He has those traits". A great route runner. "When you can play with that kind of football IQ and have ability and have work ethic, you're going to put yourself around the ball a lot". So how will Sutton fit in with Thomas and Sanders? He can be in the slot, he can be an X or Z. It's not based on size - being a slot receiver. It depends on the concept. "It's more the concept and more about your offense".
