Draft-Broncos-Third Day

The Reasoning Behind Releasing C.J. Anderson

Now they're teammates, too.

The prolific edge rusher from North Carolina State is a high-motor pass rusher with a rare mix of speed, strength and savvy that helps him beat double teams to get to the quarterback or stuff the running back.

The congratulations have been overwhelming since his selection Thursday night - "My phone froze yesterday from getting all the notifications", Chubb said - as he aims to answer the question now on the mind of every Broncos' fan.

It's safe to say Miller approved of the pick. With C.J. Anderson gone, Freeman only needs to hold off Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson to open the season as Denver's lead back.

"He fits in flawless, " Joseph said.

With AP Photos.Broncos GM John Elway has four more picks in the National Football League draft, two in the fourth round and two in the fifth, and his biggest needs are along the O-line and maybe even at quarterback with a prospect such as Richmond's Kyle Lauletta, who could sit behind Case Keenum for a couple of years.

Chubb said at the National Football League combine that he'd love to land in Denver and learn firsthand from his hero. He's such a great player, such a dynamic player.

And me, I pray. "This is about how he can be the symbolic change agent that was needed for major criminal justice reform". He said the men counting on him are "going through the same thing I'm going through".

So perhaps it's no surprise Chubb had no inclination the Broncos were interested in him.

That put the Browns back on the clock, and everyone with a working brain expected them to take Chubb, who experts aplenty saw as the top defensive player available, and a handful identified as the best prospect, period.

Over the past couple of seasons, the departure of DeMarcus Ware and Malik Jackson, as well as injuries that depleted Shane Ray and Derek Wolfe, meant that opposing teams could key on Miller, preventing him from wreaking as much havoc as he did in Super Bowl 50, when he was named the game's MVP.

The Broncos needed a grinder, but Freeman is more than that.

18th running back in program history to be selected in the NFL Draft.

Still, few foresaw Chubb slipping past the first few picks.

"When I get on the field, I feel like I set different goals for myself", Chubb said.
