Phillip Lindsay very well could repeat last season’s numbers. But there’s a very real possibility that the tables turn and Freeman — who everyone pegged as the Broncos’ lead back heading into 2018 — could end up the lead back in 2019.

Even if Lindsay is able to hang onto the lead role in the Broncos’ new scheme, Freeman should be able to carve out a role in which he provides spiked weeks when he finds the end zone. His value will shoot up if Lindsay were to ever miss time, which could be likely given Lindsay’s small frame. There are even reports that Lindsay’s wrist injury might not be fully healed until August.

The window to get Freeman at his current average draft position of 90th overall could evaporate soon. Sean Koerner
