With the 71st pick of the 2018 NFL draft, the Denver Broncos select
Rashaad Penny, RB, San Diego State
Believe it or not, the CJ Anderson news this week had no impact on this pick, I knew I was going to take a RB in this draft at some stage, I did debate it with my previous pick, but felt Moore was too good value to turn down. Again it’s a similar story here, I think pick 71 is brilliant value for this kid, everyone talks about finding the next Kamara or ??? - could this kid be one of those kinda picks in the third? Maybe, however he will need to work on his catching skills, having only had 19 and 15 catches the previous 2 seasons, however on the ground he can be the difference maker. Over 1,000 rushing yards 2 years ago averaging 7.4 yards and 11 TDS, last year he really kicked on doubling his yards by getting over 2,200 rushing yards - the only guy last year to rush for over 2,000 yards (average 7.8 yards) and a lovely 23 TDs. Also has value in the return game, after returning 1 of 2 punts last season for a TD and 2 of 17 kick offs for a TD.
With a guy like Nelson paving the way for him up top, this for me is a runnng back to definitely keep an eye out for this draft
