Miller, whose numbers took a small hit last season without DeMarcus Ware opposite him on Denver's line. How many of Denver's mock drafts had Chubb available with the fifth pick?
"I'm cool with whatever he does with that pick", Miller said.
As we near the conclusion of the first round of the draft, notable quarterbacks still on the board include Lamar Jackson, Mason Rudolph and Luke Falk. I would love to have him on my team.
Coach Vance Joseph said seeing Bradley "there at five was definitely a surprise - and for sure exciting".
That left Elway with the option of bypassing this year's deep class of promising but problematic quarterbacks to grab a blue chipper.
"Life is too short to rebuild in the NFL", Elway declared this spring. After exploring a trade with the Giants to acquire the second overall pick, the Broncos turned to defense. Do the Browns want to gamble on a undersized Baker Mayfield or a mysterious Josh Allen?
Maybe that was all a smoke screen, maybe not.
If the offense of the Broncos can play better the AFC is going to need to be put on notice, because this team is going to be a handful. Various draft experts have the Broncos taking a quarterback, running back, offensive lineman or a cornerback to fill the spot left by pro bowler Aqib Talib. That N.C. State defensive end Bradley Chubb would be the crown of the Carolinas come draft night.
Nine days ago, the Broncos cut Anderson in an effort to save $4.5 million, after trying to trade him for weeks.
So what exactly are the Broncos bringing in with Chubb? "Being able to provide free over-the-air live coverage to Broncos fans around Colorado is a big benefit for our FOX31 viewers".
"Gary is a very good evaluator", Elway said.
