Then, the Broncos' brain trust went back to work as the second round of the NFL draft began.

Denver used the 58th pick to select running back Montee Ball from Wisconsin.

Fox Sports says Ball led the FBS in rushing yards in 2011 with 1,923 yards and tied Barry Sanders single-season college record with 39 total touchdowns.

Scouts expected Ball to enter the 2012 NFL Draft after a dominant junior year in which he rushed for 1,923 yards and scored a record-tying 39 touchdowns. He returned for one final campaign, though, to manage impressive numbers once again.

The Broncos both Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno on the roster at the running back position, but adding Ball gives them a player with a proven track record of production. Ball was outstanding for the Wisconsin Badgers in his time there and is able to run between the tackles. Though he has a lot of miles on his legs, he should be a fresh back for Peyton Manning and could see a lot of red zone carries. If both McGahee and Moreno are on the team with Ball when the season begins, the Broncos will likely rotate their backs in to keep them fresh.

In a prospect profile from SB Nation, Ball was his technique coming out of the backfield.

Ball scored another 22 times in his senior year, averaging 5.1 yards per carry. He left Wisconsin with 924 carries for 5,140 yards and 77 rushing touchdowns. The mileage put on his tires might be bit daunting given the standard shelf life of running backs, but Ball will continue to be a workhorse in the NFL.

He now holds the FBS record for all-time touchdowns. The 2012 Doak Walker Award winner possesses a nice blend of power and speed. Ten games eclipsing the 100-yard mark last year proves he can run all over just about every defense he faces.

On to the 3rd Round

The Broncos made their last selection of the night Friday with the 90th pick. Denver used that draft choice on defensive back Kayvon Webster from the University of South Florida.
