The players are in the locker room.
Henderson is the sixth Chanticleer to be drafted since the program's inception in 2003 and the third to be drafted in the last four years. "Everything that I do when I play kick return..."
For now, don't expect more from these Broncos.
Walker played in 12 games as a freshman in 2013, registering 18 tackles and one sack, while helping the Seminoles to their third national championship in school history. You guys know, the DBs, (Derek) Wolfe, Von, Ray, all those guys. I'm really excited about Vance Joseph. "And I think that's always been my philosophy. I went insane. I jumped out of the bed and went insane".
Joseph is new at this head coaching business.
Although I am highly skeptical of Garett Bolle's claim that his infant son will remember the 2017 National Football League draft the rest of his life, he brings talent at the left tackle position that the Broncos were desperately in need of.
"Obviously, the young quarterbacks have to continue to improve, " Elway said in an interview with 9News following the draft. "Me and Greg Freeman, we just talked about life". Until Friday, it was his only focus. While most players can be easily categorized by a position, it isn't fair to narrow down Henderson to just one.
With the 172nd pick in the 5th round, the Denver Broncos made the junior slot receiver/return specialist their latest pick. There was Ron Leary, a feisty guard from Dallas, and Domata Peko, a no-nonsense defensive lineman from Cincinnati. Henderson can be the receiver to finally erase the draft mistake that was Cody Latimore. Brendan Langley is a speedy cornerback.
Bolles told media that the Broncos hosted him a week before the draft and that Elway told him "we'll see you next week". We were close and couldn't get anything done. Three possible returners, all added for depth and the future.
Of the Broncos' eight picks, only two were devoted to the defense.
Although O.J. Howard was within shouting distance of falling to Denver in the first round, the Broncos found a very solid tight end option in Jake Butt. Henderson, a WR out of Louisiana Tech, finished 2016 with 1,535 yards, good for fifth in the nation, and 31 total touchdowns.
What Elway has done to improve his football team is all about the big uglies. "Medical stuff is so much better now".
"Chad, his ACL is doing well. We have the greatest fans in the country, in my opinion, here in Broncos Country". I love learning. I love football. He started three games there before going on IR himself (shoulder).
Walker almost doubled Garrett's tackle and sack totals last season, and he was more productive in games against Southeastern Conference competition, despite playing just two games against SEC teams.
Bolles and I both are graduates of Snow College. "He's a tough guy". He's a strong runner, he's got that jump cut and he does a great job in traffic between the tackles. Hopefully we can create that edge on the offensive side like we have on that defensive side.
