Data Scout Notes: 1stC/HMM/PMaxwell/PBiletnikoff/1st C/M
Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Wide receiver Eric Decker: He should have gone much higher in the draft, but a season-ending foot injury set him back. If he gets healthy -- and he said he hopes to be fully ready by training camp -- the Broncos might have got a steal in the third round.
A closer look at the Broncos' picks: Round 3/78 -- Eric Decker, WR, 6-3, 217, Minnesota, Decker is big, smart, can make plays and has fantastic hands. Once he recovers from a foot injury, he could be a good player for the Broncos. - by The Sports Xchange
