  • Broncos selected Utah RB Devontae Booker with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

    Booker (5'11/219) spent two seasons at Utah after a JUCO transfer, parlaying 560 carries into 2,773 yards (4.95 YPC) and 21 TDs. Also an adept receiver, Booker caught 80 passes in just 23 games. On tape, Booker showed a sensational aptitude for making himself skinny and fitting through cracks, as well as quick feet and run-finishing ability. Concerns include Booker's small hands (8 5/8"), advanced age -- he'll be a 24-year-old rookie -- and a torn meniscus that cut his final college season three games short. Ultimately, Booker teased an NFL-starter-quality skill set as a Ute and is a promising pro prospect.

    • Best draft by Elway and company so far.. The rich just get richer, if we don't repeat it won't be because of Elway.

          The more accurate comparison I saw (in a youtube comment lol) was Arian Foster. The one clip I watched he was definitely more of that type of runner. TD was a bit more of a 1-cut, breaking tackles type of runner. But this dude looks smooth. Was really impressed with the video

              • Hopefully Booker will have as much production as the last RB we drafted from Utah...Mike Anderson.

                  Seattle from April till August is probably one of the most beautiful places in the US.....after that...miserable. PT is the cold rain early in the morning was miserable.

                        Gotta take a look at the LBs available. Kentrell Brothers and Scooby Wright ran very poorly, so I don't know if they fit what Elway wants at ILB. We usually take good athletes at LB.

                              Ive been banging the table for Westerman but I just dont feel like we would double up on guard right now.

                                I see this draft as a 2017 impact draft myself. Think every guy we took will be groomed to start in 2017

                                Lynch will replace Sanchez
                                Gotsis replaces Walker
                                Booker replaces Hillman as platoon with CJ
                                McGovern has a chance to compete this year, I see him as a fixture at RG.
