Ryan Clady Tears ACL

29 May 2015 - 09:48 AM

Yikes......downgrade Manning some more.

Denver Broncos OT Ryan Clady (knee) tore the left anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during practice Wednesday, May 27, and he is likely to miss all of the 2015 season, according to a league source.

 

A crushing blow to the Broncos here. Clady is an All-Pro left tackle in charge of protecting Peyton Manning's blind side. Now, the team is going to turn to rookie Ty Sambrailo in that position. The Broncos are going to have a more balanced offense this year, so dial back expectations for Manning and the passing game compared to what we've seen over the last three years in Denver.

In mocks, I'm often seeing D. Thomas, A. Brown, and Dez (and sometimes Julio and Mega)  being drafted before him. All great WR's, and the argument for Brown and, perhaps, Demaryius is solid......but am I missing something here? Are people expecting a Sophomore slump?

 

Granted, he was getting an insane amount of targets down the stretch last season. Here are his #'s for the final 9 games (targets/receptions/yards/TD):

 

11/8/156/0

10/7/108/0

13/6/93/0

11/10/146/2

8/7/90/0

15/11/130/1

15/12/143/3

12/8/148/2

21/12/185/1

 

Some say that was against soft defenses. I don't consider Seattle, St. Louis, SF, or even Jax to be soft.

 

Others say that Cruz coming back will hurt him. For me, it's hard to consider Cruz a threat....and if so, just a nominal one at best.

 

So, where do you put him and why? Also, does his presence finally make Eli a potentially legit (and more importantly, consistent) mid-range QB1?

Old school kicker, who played for the "perfect team".

I guess with the pay cut, he has to earn a little cash on the side....but who knew?

Another Peyton Manning Thread

Okay....this is assuming that he plays next year in Denver, and appears healthy.

 

Before his late-season meltdown, I heard chatter on here about people taking him in early first round next season. Personally, I took him at 1.02 this year and got L. Bell and Gronk at the 2/3 turn, then E. Sanders later on. Won the ship....but didn't play Manning. I saw the writing on the wall and subbed in Ryan, who I had been holding as insurance.

 

At any rate, I am already wondering how far his redraft value for next season has dropped because of the horrible last few games. Do you think that name-value will keep him in the late first-early second, or that he will fall lower than that? Would you draft him next season?
