08:49 AM ET 04.06 | This November will mark one year since Knowshon Moreno suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee at Kansas City. It routinely takes a player about a year -- maybe a little less in some of the best-case scenarios -- to get to full playing speed again and to have regained most of the strength in the injured leg. ... If he's added to the 53-man roster, another player has to be released. So the Broncos are certainly still on the hunt for depth at running back, and it is likely they will select at least one in the upcoming draft. Moreno is a former first-round pick, just 24, and may have been having the best day of his career as a runner with 52 yards on four carries against the Chiefs when he was injured along the sideline.

Ball security. He was a fumble machine.

I will say it one more time......nah.

I know Peyton makes mediocre receivers better, but I would address that and then wait until later rounds to take a runningback.

If KnoShow was my RB, I'd be looking to the draft, too.

I would draft an OL, but hey, what do I Know?

Exactly. Should have been cut from the team 2 years ago. Local papers have reported he's lazy and thinks he's entitled.

Trade with Carolina for J Stewart problem solved; Stewie is a beast.

Yeah, what do you know.. the offensive line is fine. They need a 5th or 6th round running back. Thats where TD came from so they should be able to score a serviceable runner alongside Willis McGahee. The offensive line is one of the best in the game.

What are they going to trade Carolina to get Stewart? Coach Fox???

Agreed! Why he hasn't been tried as a running back is baffling. To have a running back who could also substitute as QB if the need arose sounds like a very useful player, and yet he has never been tried as an RB. Why not Tebow? I am sure his fans would rather see him on the field in action as an RB instead of holding a clipboard on the sidelines. C'mon people! Tebow for RB! Tebow for RB!
