Royce Freeman was supposed to be "the man" for the Broncos years ago when they selected him in the third round. Instead, he was beat out by Phillip Lindsay for two years in a row. As Lindsay went on to be a back-to-back 1,000-yard rusher, Freeman was merely a reserve who didn't see the field much. In 2020, Freeman was pushed further down the depth chart with the addition of Melvin Gordon. This year, Lindsay is gone but the Broncos moved up in the second round to select Javonte Williams (North Carolina). Freeman is competing to be the no.3 running back on the roster and won't be in line to do much unless injuries strike the players in front of him. He's got talent, more talent than he's shown in the NFL, but a lack of confidence has plagued his game. Freeman could use a change of scenery.
