    So you don't want one guy with an injury history (knees) but you want another with an injury history (knees) and character red flags?

    If I had to guess, I agree, I think Christine Michael is the most traditional NFL style back in this draft with his build at 5'11"-220 with his speed...but he has a reputation of being a complete a-hole, turned a lot of people off in his meetings at the combine, and reportedly even slept through some of them. Add that to his issues with Kevin Sumlin at A&M, and it will all come down to what the Broncos think about his character.

    Well maybe if Bell was playing with any NFL players on his team he would've played well. Don't look at stats look at his runs IN THE GAMES. He had outstanding runs every single game and if he played with that oline that Richardson had he would've crushed his stats. I'd rather have a RB who put up great tape with no talent around him then a RB with more 1st round talent than any team in the league like Richardson

    He didnt play well against them in any season, even when he had talent around him...

    Bell had a private workout with the Broncos, so if they want him, he will likely be sitting there in the second when we select. I guess I just don't believe the Broncos will spend a second round pick on a RB. If he falls to our third round pick, he would have great value there, but I doubt Bell falls that far

    Really? Watch the 2012 Nebraska game and that's better tape than any other RB I've watched in this draft

    Bell is very much a one dimensional player. 10 years ago, I would think differently about him. But today, I just have questions about how well his game will translate

    I wouldn't hate the pick in the second round, but am not convinced the Broncos would take him there

    Speaking of Nebraska and RB's, anyone like Rex Burkhead late? He's a tough son of a gun

    How is he one dimensional?

    He looks like a Peyton Hillis type. A late round pounder RB

    Jesus I guess watching the actual runs is too hard for you, and you just want to go off stats.

    Michael is a 3rd or 4th round prospect at this point, imo, so the investment isn't very high with very good upside, and he is healthy. Lattimore is still a question mark as to how he will come back and I think someone will take him higher than I would want to risk. I would take lattimore but not until the 5th round or so. Lattimore's last injury was pretty severe so I wouldn't count on him coming back as well as others have until I see it.

    Thanks for sharing this mock with us.
    We will be lucky if Jenkins makes it our of the first round passed the 49ers

    I'd rather have Lattimore then Taylor. There is the injury concern, but Elway's shown he is willing to take injured talent if they last long enough. If we dont pick up a RB before the 4th and he's there, I think he'll be the pick.

    If he rehabs back to full, then we just got the steal of the draft. If he rehabs back to 90%, he's still better then a lot of RBs in this draft. If his knee goes out and his football career is done, then it was only a 4th round pick. With modern surgery I think the chances of football being done for Lattimore are very low. Players are coming back from knee surgery's all the time and it does not effect them as negatively as it used too with new medical techniques and rehab strategies.
