    Guys. I go to Arizona State and watched them play a lot, went to practices, all that. And trust me when I say this. Torain was the best player on the entire roster. Remember when we were ranked #4 in the nation?! Because of RYAN TORAIN. He was destroying defenses. And when he got hurt, ASU went down the drain and they were terrible.

    This is a great pick guys. I think him and Selvin Young will be our staple running backs for the next 5 years. I want Travis Henry to pan out, but Torain is a stud! So be happy with the pick, I thought he was the best RB in the Pac 10 last year until he got hurt.

    truest statement. There are ALOT of players people have never heard of. That does not mean they dont have talent. Torrain is a solid player to pick. Henry is unreliable. Young is injury prone. Hall is tiny. They needed another rb. I think next year is a year they can focus on an elite rb prospect.

    Just read this on him


    SLEEPER: Arizona States Ryan Torain, a graduate of Shawnee Mission Northwest, rushed for 1,229 yards as a junior before suffering a season-ending foot injury last season. If hes fully recovered from surgery, Torain could help a club.

    Yeah, because you know what you're talking about when evaluating RB's, over Shanny who has proven over and over he is good at it.

    No, Shanny knew this pick would piss you off, so he wasted it
    just to give you heartburn over the next year.

    I'm with ya man, I am not ever watching the Broncos ever again.
    Hehehe...great point...people need to realize that it is a 5th round pick. But it is only us that is passing on Hart

    Ryan Torain
    Selected by: Denver Broncos
    Round: 5
    Pick (Overall): 4(139)RB | (6'0", 222, 4.71) | ARIZONA STATE
    Scouts Grade: 37

    Flags: (D: DURABILITY) Player that can't stay healthy(I: INJURY) Coming off injury that may affect play(S: SPEED) Player lacks ideal speed at position


    Strengths: Reads blocks well and makes sharp first cut. Runs north-south and hits the hole hard. Drives though arm tacklers, keeps driving legs and picks up yards after contact. Keeps head up, has adequate foot speed and exploits cutback lanes. Has adequate initial burst and is quick enough to turn the corner. Runs adequate routes, catches the ball well and can produce after the catch. Lacks elite bulk for a power back but s big enough and has the frame to add even more weight.

    Weaknesses: Takes the occasional false step and could be more efficient. Runs a little high when gets to the second level and takes some big hits. Isn't going to make multiple defenders miss, doesn't have the second gear to outrun defenses when gets a seam and isn't much of a threat to break long runs. Keeps head up in pass protection and can pick up the blitz but doesn't attack assignments and can get run over in the backfield. While keeps ball close to frame, doesn't always cover up when gets into traffic and can put the ball on the ground. Missed four games of the 2005 season with an injury, missed 2007 San Diego State game with an ankle injury, sustained a season-ending toe injury October 13, 2007 and durability is a concern.

    Overall: Torain began his career at Butler CC, where he spent two years (2004-05) and ran for 800-plus yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore, despite missing four games. In 2006, he played in 13 games (eight starts) and finished with 1,229 yards and seven touchdowns on 223 carries (5.5 average). In six games as a senior, he ran for 553 yards and five TDs on 110 carries (5.0 average) before being knocked out of the Sun Devils' final seven games by ankle, knee and foot injuries. In two years at Tempe, Torain also had 25 receptions for 305 yards (11.4 average) and five touchdowns. Torain is an efficient between-the-tacklers runner and a reliable receiver out of the backfield but he isn't as physical as his size would suggest, he isn't much of a big-play threat and he's coming off a season-ending foot injury. He projects as a seventh round pick or rookie free agent consequently.


    Before people throw a fit about this pick, lets not forget that our own Terrel Davis was almost in this exact situation. A guy that had injury and durability concerns that didn't have speed. Lets not judge a book by it's cover here. He could turn out to be a very good back for us. He has the one cut ability with power, sounds like a winning formula in the zone blocking scheme if you ask me
