Default Denver RBs on the Block

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-running-back/

Quote:
Two NFL executives say the Broncos have been asking teams if they are interested in acquiring one of their running backs. It makes sense after the Broncos signed three free-agent tailbacks: Correll Buckhalter, J.J. Arrington and LaMont Jordan.

The Broncos’ holdover running backs who can be had for trade: Selvin Young, Ryan Torain and Peyton Hillis.

No thank you on Selvin Young, as I have seen way too much of him to know he is not worth givin up anything for other than league minimum.

I did like Hillis at Arkansas and before the injury.

Torain is a beast. I think he has some injury history though.

I like Hillis as well.

Default Re: Denver RBs on the Block

Hillis was the most consistent RB that Denver had last season that came out of nowhere when he got his chance because all of their backs got hurt. If the Texans want a nice guy and a bruiser to pair with Slaton than here is the guy. When he was playing, he was doing everything from running in between the tackles to catching short passes, he was a total utility player for them. He would be a very big help to this team no question. There is absolutely no reason why we shouldn't be going after this guy and trying to trade a late rounder especially since we were going after Ced Benson. If we could get Hillis, that would take a lot of the importance away from having to use a pick in the 3rd or 4th on a RB to pair with Slaton.

If HIllis goes to a team that utilizes his strengths he'll be a nice player to have for many years. He is really young and doesn't have a lot of miles on him either. Plus he already knows the running system that we run over here.

I remember someone on this board was all over the Hillis train last year?

I can't remember who it was though? Beerlover maybe? Or Threetoedpete? I think it was one of them, or both.

I never knew who he was until last season, but when he got his chance he was all over the place getting those tough yards that the Broncos had been lacking in getting all season. Unfortunately he got hurt in like his 3rd start or something like that. The dude was all utility type of player though that could play well on basically any team.

I really liked him at Arkansas. He played FB and I think he was all conference.

He isn't the best blocker for a FB, but he runs very well and he can catch out of the backfield.

Default Re: Denver RBs on the Block

Well instead of drafting a big RB in the 3rd or 4th round we could send a late round pick to Denver for Hillis. He's a big bruising RB and already has experience in the zone blocking scheme. Actually he was very effective in it last year. I also love Ryan Torain, but it seems like he's been injured every season since he was a SOPH in college.

He found the end zone in every game he started last season I believe. He is the kind of bruiser that we could use in the red zone. If Smith isn't trying to pull off a deal on a guy like this that could easily help the team that should be able to be had for a late pick like 6th or something, I won't ever expect the Texans to go after any real free agents. This is a guy that could be had for cheap right now, and exactly what we need. Mcdaniels is letting a lot of those Broncos players go right now and all but Cutler will probably go for a bargain since teams know that Mcdaniels doesn't want them and if they keep those guys Mcdaniels probably won't utilize certain players any way, so it's pretty useless to keep them.

Default Re: Denver RBs on the Block

Just asking...we got an extra 4th right? So we have a pick to spend. Not necessarily a 4th but what I'm saying is getting rid of a pick for a player with experience (good experience at that) doesn't hurt the number of picks we have in this year's draft. I say make the deal and get it done.

P.S. Can someone remind me how we got the extra 4th again?

At 6'2" and 250#, he is a bruiser, difficult to bring down. Last year, when given a chance, he managed 5 yds/carry for 5 TDs and no fumbles. He knows the system. But here's the hooker............he's coming off a December injury leading to post-season hamstring repair. Despite this, he should have enough time to rehab adequately by OT. And this type of repaired injury is less likely to recur than a pure tear. I say bring him in.

Hillis is exactly the kind of player I would think McDaniels likes and would want to keep.

In anycase, I'd definitely give up a late round pick for the guy. He could be a GREAT fullback in this system and a good guy to split carries with Slaton. I would be excited about that.

That use of his talent was not that highly touted at the time of his draft. However, with the correct coaching, this could be a definite dual potential.:

Quote:
BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 62/347/2 on the ground last season when he led Arkansas in receiving with 49/537/5. Junior-year totals included pass-catching numbers of 19/159. Has lined up at both fullback and tailback. Used to return punts the past three seasons.

POSITIVES: Athletic lead blocker who.s also been productive handling the ball. Plays with a good degree of quickness, shows good vision, and fast enough to turn the corner and create space for the ball-carrier. Works hard, seals opponents from the action, and chips defenders to open lanes for running backs. Effective receiver who adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Possesses the speed to be a downfield pass-catching threat. Instinctive, immediately picks up blitzes, and stays with assignments.

NEGATIVES: Marginally strong at the point, gathers into blocks, and rarely finishes off defenders. Does a lot of unnecessary cut-blocking. Lacks top ball-carrying skills.

ANALYSIS: Hillis is an oversized running back who lacks the pure strength to be a lead blocker. His pass-catching skills and athleticism are best suited for a west coast offense.

PROJECTION: Early Fifth Round
