The Steelers came into Sunday’s game against the Broncos allowing opposing offenses to gain less than 100 rushing yards per game Todd Davis Color Rush Jersey , but Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay surpassed that all by himself.Lindsay needed 14 carries to get to 110 rushing yards on the day and his touchdown helped the Broncos to a 24-17 win on their home field. Lindsay now has 780 rushing yards on the season, which is a record for undrafted Broncos rookies and on pace for another milestone.Lindsay is on pace to run for 1,134 yards this season and that would leave him 30 yards ahead of former Colt Dominic Rhodes for the most rushing yards ever by an undrafted rookie. Numbers like that defy a lot of the conventional wisdom about Lindsay coming out of Colorado and Lindsay believes the Broncos can confound some more of it over the final five weeks.“I mean, you have confidence every time you win,” Lindsay said, via the Denver Post. 鈥淵ou build a bond, you build what you need to get to the next step. We [need] to peak here, so that when we get to the playoffs, we can peak again. …聽We鈥檙e a playoff team. If you sit here and doubt yourself, there鈥檚 no reason for you to play.”At 5-6, the Broncos are outside looking in at the playoff picture right now. The schedule isn’t an overly daunting one, however. They’ll face the Bengals and 49ers on the road the next two weeks before returning home for the Browns. The slate closes with a trip to Oakland before a home game against the Chargers that could be a big one for the team and Lindsay as an individual. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) While John Elway and his staff wrap up preparations for next week’s NFL draft, it’s the Denver Broncos‘ 2017 draft class that’s really on the clock.”Well, we’re hoping they can help us this year Brendan Langley Jersey ,” Elway said Thursday.A half dozen of Elway’s 2017 draft picks either missed their entire rookie season or played so sparingly that they remain virtual unknowns.Only first-round pick Garrett Bolles had much of an impact, but he was one of the most penalized players in the league and was openly mocked in the locker room by several veterans after the tough-talking left tackle was bowled over by Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan on Christmas Eve, which they had warned him would happen if he didn’t fix his poor technique.Aside from Bolles, who started all 16 games, the 2017 draft class couldn’t get onto the field, combining for zero starts and missing a combined 75 games while playing sparingly in 37.A year after an offensive-defensive rift opened in the Broncos locker room, there was a simmering generational gap in 2017. Several veterans including Chris Harris Jr. and Todd Davis said the rookie class just didn’t grasp the NFL leap until the season was already a lost cause thanks to an eight-game skid, their longest in 50 years.Three of last year’s picks didn’t play at all – third-round wide receiver Carlos Henderson (hand), fifth-round tight end Jake Butt (knee) and seventh-round quarterback Chad Kelly (knee, wrist).Three others hardly played.Defensive end DeMarcus Walker, Denver’s second-round pick, managed a single sack in 10 games after losing weight to move outside. Third-round cornerback Brendan Langley had one punt return for 6 yards. And sixth-round running back De’Angelo Henderson carried the ball just seven times for 13 yards after a terrific training camp.Meanwhile, fifth-rounder Isaiah McKenzie played much more than expected.Coach Vance Joseph raised eyebrows by handing the rookie from the University of Georgia the starting punt returner’s job early in training camp even as other position battles raged on, most notably at quarterback between Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.Joseph also stuck with McKenzie through a half dozen fumbles that left players privately fuming that the coaches were rewarding the rookie for his persistent gaffes.McKenzie’s mistakes weren’t limited to special teams. He cost Denver a chance at points just before halftime in Week 16 when he forgot the Broncos didn’t have any more timeouts, caught a pass and instead of stepping out of bounds spun back to the middle of the field and was tackled at the 20 as time expired.If the Broncos are to rebound in 2018 , a big bounce-back from their entire 2017 draft class would surely help.”Yeah, our expectations are that that class participates a lot more this year than it did last year,” Elway said. ”At least that’s the hope.”Butt was a projected first-rounder last year before he blew out a knee in his bowl game and slipped to the fifth round. If healthy, he could provide a big boost to an offense that was anemic last season.”Jake seems to be running around in good shape,” Elway said.Kelly also was considered a steal as the final player selected in Round 7 because he was recovering from multiple injuries.He could be the wild card in the quarterback room this summer because he has the chops to beat out Lynch as Case Keenum’s backup, which could prompt Elway to finally move on from Lynch, whom he moved up to select in the first round two years ago only to see him languish on the bench for two years.Somebody else who needs to shake off a shaky rookie season is Joseph. He inherited a 9-7 team that was one year removed from a Super Bowl triumph and went 5-11 with eight double-digit losses last year.Joseph kept his job but brought in several new assistants as he tries to become the first head coach in the Super Bowl era to reach the playoffs after winning four fewer games than the one he inherited.It would help if the 2017 class proves first impressions were wrong and if the upcoming draft class has more of an immediate impact.The Broncos own the fifth overall pick, their highest since Elway chose superstar Von Miller with the second selection in 2011.After publicly lobbying Elway to sign free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, Miller isn’t offering his GM any advice in advance of the draft.”I’m cool with whatever he does with that pick,” Miller said.NOTES: Elway said he was glad to be able to trade CB Aqib Talib to the Rams, one of his desired destinations. ”I know that he’ll feel comfortable playing for Wade (Phillips) out there. He knows that system very well,” Elway said.—
