The Denver Broncos now completed coaching staff is in Mobile this week for the Senior Bowl, scouting players that will be available in this April’s draft.
Vice President of Football Operations John Elway, Head Coach John Fox and Denver’s scouts have been attending practice all week.
“I feel good about what we’ve gotten done already here,” Elway told the Denver Post on Tuesday afternoon as the South team wrapped up its practice. “We’ve already seen a lot of people.”
Meanwhile, wide receiver Brandon Lloyd is down in Hawaii catching some waves and preparing to play in the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career. In 2010, 72 of the 77 Lloyd’s catches went for first downs, the best first downs per-catch average in a season over the last 10 years. After scoring 11 touchdowns and averaging 18.8 yards a catch, Lloyd was voted by the fans, players and coaches to the Pro Bowl, where he will be a starter.
It’s nice to see Lloyd having some fun and getting some R&R after such an amazing season, nobody deserves it more than him. Let’s hope the Broncos take notice of a few players on Saturday that can join the team and prevent Lloyd — or any other Bronco — from being the lone Stallion representing Denver in Honolulu in the future. Update: Champ Bailey will be joining Lloyd in Hawaii, to replace Nnamdi Asomugha at cornerback on the AFC roster.
