Average draft positions based off of ESPN.
RB Arian Foster (Houston)
As his blocking has declined from great to above average to average over the past 3 seasons, as he’s lost his starting right guard, starting right tackle, and starting fullback, Foster has seen his YPC drop from 4.9 to 4.4 to just 4.1 last season. Now his body appears to be breaking down after 1115 regular season touches (and 128 post-season touches) and it appears a given he’ll split carries with talented backup Ben Tate early in the season, at the very least. There are better uses of your first round pick.
QB Peyton Manning (Denver)
Quarterbacks in general are being drafted too high this year. You can get a very solid quarterback in the mid rounds. For instance, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck are the 10th and 11th quarterbacks off the board this season. It’s not just Manning. Tom Brady and Matt Ryan are among the quarterbacks that are getting drafted too high, but I’m singling out Manning because he’s being draft...

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning sat down and spoke with Erik Kuselias of NBCSN’s Pro Football Talk and talked about his future. ”I really have no idea how much longer I’ll play,” Manning said, via ProFootballTalk.com. “In the 2011 season, I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to play again. I had a very strange injury. I had different doctors that just couldn’t...
Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning spent over a decade in Indianapolis and he would wave his arms up and down, the stadium would get quiet. No, it’s not an egotistical thing, Manning is one of the greatest at the line audible callers, but it doesn’t work if his offense can’t hear him. In a somewhat strange request, the QB wants the Denver faithful to ‘pipe down’ so to speak.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning made an appearance with Dave Logan on AM 850 KOA on Tuesday and asked Broncos fans to be more quiet when they’re on offense this season. “When we’re on the field on offense – I love our fans’ excitement – but if we can just find that controlled noise level,” said Manning, via Broncos.com. “I believe we are going to go for it on...
Denver Broncos running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman have been battling it out all offseason for the starting running back job. It appears as if neither one of them got the leg up on the other running back. According to offensive coordinator Adam Gase the Broncos will use a running back by committee.
"This is going to be a by-committee backfield. We've never shied...

There is a future quarterback plan at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters although John Elway would never dare draw it on paper. Wouldn't want any visible evidence for Peyton Manning to see.
But if the laws of mortality hold the day will come when Manning now 37 no longer is the Broncos' starting quarterback. If it can happen in Indianapolis it can happen here.
The Ravens played great in the playoffs last season beating the top AFC team on their way to the Super Bowl. I've been very hard on Joe Flacco in the past but I gave him credit for leading them to a championship. Now that we're heading into a new season, my criticism of Flacco remains. He's lost Boldin and Pitta, not to mention Rice isn't getting any younger...
Let's say you are a Denver Bronco season ticket holder. You've paid thousands of dollars for the privilege of going to eight regular season games. You also know, on some level, that you are locked into this behavior, since it took you years to get them to take your money. You are so all-in for your team that you, well, agree to go to regular season games in...
According to the Denver Post, Broncos RB Ronnie Hillman returned to the first team during Tuesday's practice.Fantasy Spin:Back and forth we go. Rookie Montee Ball received first-team reps for the first time all camp Monday after Hillman fumbled for the third time this preseason Saturday. Ball, Hillman and Knowshon Moreno figure to all be in the mix for playing time in Denver...
