Broncos introduce first-round NFL draft pick Bradley Chubb

After adding dominant pass-rusher Bradley Chubb in the first round of the National Football League draft, the Denver Broncos primarily bolstered the offensive side of the ball in Friday's second and third rounds.

The Denver Broncos' general manager grabbed the top-ranked defensive player in the National Football League draft Thursday night when North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb fell to Denver at No. 5.

The Broncos' 3-4 defensive scheme will require Chubb to play as both a three-down lineman and outside linebacker.

Broncos general manager John Elway described Freeman as "a big, physical runner who will fit in well in our backfield".

Freeman is the sixth OR running back in program history selected in the first three rounds of the draft, joining LaMichael James (2013 - 2nd Round), Jonathan Stewart (2008 - 1st Round), Maurice Morris (2002 - 2nd Round), Reuben Droughns (2000 - 3rd Round) and Curt Mecham (1942 - 2nd Round).

The versatile Sutton prides himself on garnering attention no matter where he lines up, but he's admittedly still a work in progress and eager for mentoring by Thomas and Sanders.




One reason why Sutton is raw is because he was mostly recruited as a safety, and wound up switching to receiver early in college. Anderson, from Cal, rushed for more than 1,000 yards last season. All of this could see Sutton land in Dallas if he is still available when the Cowboys are on the clock on Friday night. "But it wasn't a concern when we took him".

The defensive end from North Carolina State was viewed as the best pass rusher in the draft.

"I'm excited about a guy like that".

"That motor came from always wanting to make plays", Chubb said.

"We did. And we were thrilled that he was still there, " Elway said. It was just something I was raised with.

"I am going to do it above and beyond with what is inside of me". "When they were coaching me, I took every single tip they gave me and ran off with it. I feel like I bring that to the pass-rush game".
