OR running back Royce Freeman, here sprinting through a hole against Wyoming on September 16, was selected in the third round by the Broncos on Friday night.

Mix Demaryius Thomas' size and strength with Emmanuel Sanders' pedigree and athleticism and you've got Courtland Sutton, the wide receiver chosen in the second round by the Denver Broncos.

Freeman, a 6-foot, 229-pound senior finished his collegiate career with 5,621 rushing yards and 64 total touchdowns (60 rushing).

"That is really what we're excited about because I think it's contagious", Elway said Friday.

A dominant runner at OR who was so good as a true freshman that the Ducks moved incumbent 1,000-yard runner Byron Marshall to wide receiver, Freeman's four-year career yielded 5,621 yards (5.9 YPC) and 60 touchdowns in 51 games, his 79 receptions for 814 yards and four touchdowns giving further reason to expect an eventual three-down impact. "We talked a little bit about moving up and couldn't get anything done and so we were patient with him and it worked out". "I feel like a successful rookie year is just making plays and whatever it takes to help this team win". "He's big and he can really run".

After getting pass-rusher Bradley Chubb with the No. 5 pick in the second round, Elway considered taking a running back with his first pick in the second round.

Court's ruling says foreign minister violated election laws by not declaring work permits in the U.A.E. . The foreign minister is a high-profile PML-N figure tipped as a possible replacement for Sharif.

"I am very new to the position".

"What it shows to us is durable", Elway said.

"We're lucky", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said.

"I am a guy who is going to come to the field and demand respect wherever I am on the field - whether it is in the slot, whether it is on the outside, on the right or the left", Sutton said during a conference call.

After a medical redshirt in 2014, Sutton caught 194 passes for 3,193 yards and 31 touchdowns in three seasons at SMU. "They played me at safety but Coach Jones saw that I had the ball skills and they needed some grit on that other side of the ball". "If I am going to do something, I am going to do it at 100 percent"'.
