    Denver coaches already have seen Bloom in action. No need to see him work out. I love to have him be our kick/punt returner.

    You have to realize, the reason Darrent Williams was drafted, was just because of his kick return/ punt return skills. It was just a bonus that he turned out to be a stud CB.

    Shanny didnt hesitate to use a 2nd rounder on that position... So I dunno

    I understand the Bronco's reasoning behind this. The man hasn't played football in a long time. And was better at returning punts than being a reciever when he did. I still would like to get him in a late round pick, but no harm no foul if we don't.

    That's exactly right. He trained with McCaffrey...................I think they will simply ask for his opinion whether Bloom can play or not. Plus, if they act uninterested, they have a better shot at him in the later rounds. ...................Van Pelt was a 7th round pick.............Sapp wasn't drafted................They know all about the local guys. The only reason the other 31 teams were there is because they don't.

    the double-reverse isn't the only misdirection play in shanny's playbook. . . .

    From a purely female point of view, that is sad

    From a footballing point of view, I'm somewhat surprised to hear that he would be considered as a first day pick, what with him being a bit of an unknown quantity after being out of the game for a while.

    There there sharks don't cry. Besides with the handsome guys on this board y'all shouldn't be too sad.

    Bloom hoping to catch a break in career switch
    By Mike Klis
    Denver Post Staff Writer


    Jeremy Bloom (Post file)

    His snow skis stowed in his recent past, Jeremy Bloom is looking ahead to the uncertain terrain that is the NFL draft, seeking a finish that is out of his control.

    The goal is to hear his name on the first day, which means anywhere in the third round. If he does go that high, don't expect the announcement to come from the local team.

    A little more than three weeks ago, Bloom invited all 32 NFL teams to his training complex in Redondo Beach, Calif., to watch him work out. There he would perform drills for the first time since speeding down Folsom Field for the University of Colorado nearly three years ago.

    "Thirty-one teams were there," Bloom said. "Guess which one team wasn't there."

    The Broncos figure to select a wide receiver from the early rounds of this weekend's draft, but Bloom isn't among their otherwise fairly long list of candidates.

    "It's not a negative thing, it's just kind of ironic," Bloom said. "Kind of funny."

    Bloom had touchdown returns of 75 (against Colorado State), 80 (Oklahoma) and 88 yards (Kansas Sate), plus scoring receptions of 81 (Florida State) and 94 yards (K-State) by the end of his sophomore year, but he was forced to surrender his upperclassman football seasons at CU because of issues with sponsorship money.

    He made the U.S. Olympic ski team, but finished sixth in his mogul event two months ago in Italy. Now, he's giving football another go. Although he has repacked 12 pounds of muscle on his body since the Olympics, Bloom's impressive speed currently lies with his football tape.

    He was

    clocked unofficially at 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis in late February - slow for an NFL wide receiver of his size.

    "My jets weren't on that day," Bloom said. "My ski jets were."

    A tight hamstring prevented him from running the 40 at his workout day in California, leaving NFL scouts guessing more than usual on whether he can produce on Sunday.

    "He is hard to evaluate, mainly because he's been away from the game for so long," said Jeffrey Foster, president of National Football Scouting, a service that works with 17 NFL teams, including the Broncos. "You do see some of the athletic skills he shows in skiing transfer to what he can do on the football field. And he showed in Colorado the ability to do different things.

    "When you compare him to other players of his size and speed at the position who have played more recently, I think you get an exciting athlete who could very well develop into a good football player. Time will be the test for him."

    Bloom hopes his time comes Saturday.
