  • Broncos to work out Toby Gerhart

    A day after the Denver Broncos traded fullback Peyton Hillis and draft picks to the Cleveland Browns for quarterback Brady Quinn, Scout.com has learned that the Broncos will conduct a private workout with Stanford running back Toby Gerhart in his hometown of Norco, California on Wednesday, March 24th.

    In addition to his workout with the Broncos, Scout.com has also learned that Gerhart will work out for the New York Jets on Tuesday, March 30th.

    The 6-foot, 231-pound Gerhart stormed onto the scene this past season after he had 343 carries for 1,871 yards and 27 touchdowns. Often compared to former Tampa Bay Buccaneers fullback Mike Alstott, the winner of the 2009 Doak Walker Award, Gerhart surprised scouts at the NFL Scouting Combine with his athleticism and straight line speed; he ran a 4.55 in the 40 and recorded a 38-inch vertical in Indianapolis.
    Gerhart could come off the board as early as the mid-second round, and the worst-case scenario will have him falling into the third round. Going back to the Gerhart-Alstott comparison, Alstott was the 35th overall pick in 1996; Gerhart could end up going to the Broncos with the 45th overall selection this year.

    He'd be a pretty cool addition. Maybe if he falls to our 3rd round pick.

            I would be exstatic if we drafted him! I really like this guy, he is just what we need to switch it up with Moreno. One helleva backfield we'd have with Moreno, Buck, Gerhart.....

                        I didnt know anyone could hate the style of plowing dudes over. I like that hard running he brings, hes a good runner but dont see much use for him, McD didnt show intrest in Hills who is basically the same thing as him.

                            The guy is a beast, but I think he is too similar to Hillis. I don't know how McDaniels would use him when he just had Hillis riding the pine. If he got Gerhart involved in the mix though we could have an extremely potent backfield.
