We went to the hotline to talk to Yahoo Sports own Frank Schwab. Frank gave the Denver Broncos’ an A grade on the off-season moves. Frank praised John Elway and been critical of him. He has struggled the past few years, and not just to find a quarterback. However, this Broncos offseason was really good. I loved just about every pick the Broncos made in the draft. Bradley Chubb could have gone first overall and nobody would have thought twice. Denver got him with the fifth pick. Courtland Sutton has No. 1 receiver upside out of the second round. I’m still not sure why Royce Freeman wasn’t considered among the top non-Saquon Barkley backs in the draft; Denver got him in the third round. I liked the picks of linebacker Josey Jewell, receiver DaeSean Hamilton and tight end Troy Fumagalli too. I graded Denver as having the NFL’s best draft this year, and it wasn’t a tough decision. The free-agent class is basically just quarterback Case Keenum, though defensive lineman Clinton McDonald, punter Marquette King and cornerback Tramaine Brock were fine low-cost additions and safety Su’a Cravens and tackle Jared Veldheer were worthwhile trade gambles. While I have the same skepticism plenty of others do about Keenum, he had a remarkable 2017 and there’s no tangible reason to believe he can’t repeat it. Trading Aqib Talib was a blow to the defense, but the Broncos did very well on the whole.
